It is fairly simple. You will need to take the movement out of the watch,remove the old crystal/gasket, insert a new crystal/gasket (a case press helps with this), add a new caseback crystal and close up the caseback securely.

Why would you even bother doing it yourself unless that's what you know how to do? A watchmaker can do it for about $35 unless you have an expensive sapphire crystal... just sayin' :whatever:

Nothing wrong with that!I guess I'm spoiled. At this point in my life, anything outside of anoil change on my Truck or Bike and Ipreferto pay someone else todo it.
So I take it you got a Mopar... Maybe a '71 Mopar? That would explain the building part :)... feel free to include a pic.
