After a lot of searching, I finally found a TV shaped crystal for this Smiths automatic watch I picked up a while back. I'd seen a couple of these and was outbid on one previously. This one was cheap as it had a crack right across the crystal They are obsolete, but I figured I'd sort something out.

I could find nothing suitable on any of the replacement crystal websites. After buying 2 other watches as potential donors which turned out to 'so nearly but not quite enough' fit, I struck lucky with a punt on a Lucerne with no back and a knackered balance. Got it for 99p, no other bidders.

It's a great snug fit and polished up well.

I really like this watch, big solid stainless case, stacked day/date at the bottom and a 5 o'clock crown. Keeping great time. Currently my only working auto.

Sorry for the quality of the hasty picture. Last minute Christmas stuff to do!

Merry Christmas to all when it comes
