I recently purchased the invicta 8928C and i like to replace the crystal to a sapphire crystal with a bigger date mag. Where can i find a crystal that will fit the watch?

I would think a qualified watchmaker could source one or you might check www.ofrei.com. Not sure how you know what size, etc. though.

You might contact Duarte at NorthEastWatchWorks.

I know they replace crystals, and I'm pretty sure they can help.

Maybe it's me and i don't know where to look but most of the good watch makers that I've seen in NYC are stuck behind a jewelry shop and you've got to get past the snobbish sales person first, they're even worse when your watch is not $$$$.

Some jewelers can be snooty. However I would try calling some jewelers and asking if they have or can get crystals and do a switch out. By calling you are not wasting time going in especially if they will not attempt it to begin with.


It is worth a shot.

Maybe send it to Invicta. Should be any easy fix for them.

I wonder if they'd do the swap to sapphire and if so how much it would cost, becausesapphire crystals is a VERY expensive upgrade, or so we've been told.

True.

A new entire 8926 might be cheaper than a sapphire crystal.

I'd take a mineral crystal if it has a 2.5x magnification window. The tiny magnification window really bothers me
