Hello all,

I have a quick question. If I send in my Navitimer 01 for a full service and ask for a replacement crystal as mine has a lot of scratches on the coating, will they return the old one back?. I’m asking because I know the crystal goes for like $630, so I definitely would like to have it back. Thanks in advance.

They generally don't supply any of the replaced parts back so I would highly doubt that they would do it for the crystal either.

That’s unfortunate!. They’ll probably take my old crystal, remove the coating, reapply it and sell it to someone else for $630. I guess that’s part of owning an expensive watch. Is there any way I can have the AR coating removed and reapplied somewhere else?.

I just had my watch serviced, and the crystal replaced. They did not send back the old crystal

Thanks for letting me know. Was it a Navitimer 01 you had serviced?. What was the total cost?. Thanks

No, it was a Chronomat b01. The cost was an additional $300 on top of the overhaul price.
