The hardest part of this watch however was the face that the crystal popped out after cleaning the case. Then, during the trial and error process of figuring out how to cleanly glue a new crystal back in there I broke the the crystal that was in there. So I got to grind a new crystal to fit, which was an additional challenge. Funny how a little quartz watch took nearly a week of my time to finish. I sure learned a lot though.
|The new, the old|
|The new stem, shortened to nearly the finished length with a nipper was then brought to the final dimension on a stone|
|Nearly short enough, but the space between the case and crown is still too extreme|
|A perfect fit!|
|The rotor, covered with iron filings! This will not do.|
|The rotor was easily cleaned off with ruboff compound|
