Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Although I've not had any responses via the forum, I did receive a helpful e-mail.
For the record, I understand that I was wrong and that the ring should separate from the crystal and it is therefore possible to replace the crystal without having to replace the ring.
: I have a Carrera 73653 with a nasty crack in the crystal that won't
: polish out.
: Am I right in thinking that the internal tachy ring or rehaut is
: part of the crystal?
: Presumably this means that it's not as simple as replacing the
: crystal with something generic, I need to find a replacement
: crystal with ring?
: Would any crystal/ring from a watch with that case shape fit? e.g.
: 73353 or 1153
: Mine is a first execution blue dial with white rehaut. Does anyone
: have a spare that they would be willing to sell me?
: Thanks in advance for your help
