    Ouch!

    With a shock like that, the crystal may be the least of the damage. Best to pull the crown and stop it running until you get it to a competent watchmaker for an assessment.

    Exactly, when the minute hand hits the hand that has fallen off what will happen?

    If you're taking it to a watchmaker, they will open it and get the reference number for the case. Then he/she can look up the crystal that goes with that case, buy it and fit it for you. This is the safest way as you are not at risk of buying the wrong crystal.

    We don't usually buy parts from eBay as you don't know what you're getting a lot of the time. I don't usually accept parts from customers either just in case they are faulty.

    Good luck, Chris

    Easy fix. Most qualified watch repair centers can handle.
