Shaped Watch Glass Cutting

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have details of anyone that cuts watch glasses to fit?

I have no trouble replacing round ones or ones that are available from the manufacturer but occasionally an older watch with an odd shaped glass will come in. My current repairer outsources the work and consequently it can take 6-8 weeks. 

No matter how much we tell the customers and warn them how long it will take they soon start turning up asking whether their watch is ready and after 6 weeks and one minute start getting arsey.

Any suggestions?

I always grind mine on the tormak sharpener. Takes a bit of practice and it’s not something I’d want to do trade but if your patient you can command a good price for something few others can do.
