    Hi all!

    While I’ve been digesting as much info as possible from the site, I realized that I haven’t properly introduced myself. Apologies.

    I’m a university biology professor and Dean of my college in Georgia, USA. I have learned much since happening upon my father’s Seamaster and look forward to learning more. I enjoy scanning the posts and am appreciative of being here. Cheers!

    Please don't feel too bad. I also did not introduce myself. I'm a retired IT Director and find myself a bit awkward navigating the forums and the various rules. I must say that the overall experience has been tremendous so far!

    Here you go. Runs, but needs service and a new crystal. Dial and case shall remain untouched. IMG_7370.jpeg IMG_7372.jpeg IMG_7370.jpeg

    Welcome to the forum! lovely Seamaster! :thumbsup:

    Dont rush replacing the crystal.
    Recently i have tried to buff out a trashed crystal with a nail buffer simmilar to this one (cost only a couple Euros at a local store). and i had a great success bringing the crystal to a very reasonable condition. If the intention is to replace the crystal anyways, why not give it a try.
    Your crystal seems to be original low-profile shape. The replacement crystals are often much taller and are not as sexy in my opinion.
    It is a relatively simple task, but be carefull not to damage the case and go easy with step 1 (maybe give it a try ona broken crystal first).
    i usually follow the steps 1-2-3 and skip the 4 but instead use a Polywatch with a piece of cloth for the fine polishing. One could try the toothpaste instead.
    wish you good luck!

    Welcome. I like the Breguet-esque numerals on that seamaster, will look lovely with a clearer crystal!
