I thought this might be a NUGENT, but I haven't been able to find an exact match. Can anyone help, please? The case number is 7356883. B-10K Rolled Gold Plate.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all, 

 

I'm new here and I recently acquired a L9 American clipper mens watch. I am new to the watch repair game, still very much a noob. I am looking for a replacement crystal for the watch as the old one is cracked. I have been searching for a replacement with no luck. Can anybody point me in the right direction on where to find one? I did get the old crystal out and measured it. It is 26.5mm round. Thanks for any help

Vintage Watch Repair, The Do's and Don'ts

The Do's and Don'ts of Vintage Watch Repair by John V. - Time & Again 

After hearing many horror stories about Vintage Watch repairs here is a quick guide and what to look out for. 

Do not send your watch to a United States P.O Box. Contact the Watchmaker or Company and ask for a physical address and Google that address. A watch sent to a USPS P.O. Box is a red flag. It may be legit but it could very well be a setup where you may never see your watch again. If the watchmaker cannot supply a physical address then run away!
