Has anyone been in contact with William of WatchCrystals.net? I've PM'd and emailed over the past 3 weeks with no response.

Thanks for the lead,Mark. I'm afraid that it didn't pan out though.

Back to the search.

Hello all who are looking to contact William.  My name is Dave, and I go by DJWatchmaker, which is my business name and my website name.  I purchased all of William's crystal inventory , the eBay Store, and data/catalogues, etc.   I restore antique and vintage watches for a living, and unfortunately have not been able to place the same attention to crystals that William did.  I'm a big fan of Bulovas, Hamiltons, Gruens and Waltham/Elgins, and other vintage watches, and really enjoy this MyBulova website.   I would be glad to sell crystals to anyone who needs them, as I have many glass and acrylics available.  I'm not as up to speed on all bulova models, and don't have a great deal of time to research, but will do what I can to help out.  I also have Bulova parts to an extent.     Due to my work, I don't have a great deal of time on my hands, but will try to respond to any requests in a reasonable time.  I don't have any Lone Eagle III's in stock at this time, that I know of.  I've got a couple Bulova pics I will post that I've not seen here that may be of interest.

William moved and is pursuing other opportunities on the East Coast.  I hate to leave you all hanging, and just saw these messages posted, so wanted you all to know the status of WatchCrystals store.


Best Regards,

Dave J., CW21

You know, I was wondering about the name "Dave" on the Watch-Crystals listings on ebay.

Well, at least we know William's alive.
