Additional Information: 

This watch was passed down from my great grandmother to my mother, and now I have the pleasure of owning it.  The wrist band is not original, but the watch still works.  The case has a series of three hand written numbers engraved on the interior.  I am interested in having the cracked crystal replaced, but am unsure of how to proceed.

A quality jeweler or watch maker should be able to replace the crystal for $20 to $30 and if you are lucky with a glass one.  Those are getting harder to find for these older watches so a plastic/acrylic replacement is also likely.
