Is it possible to locate an original crystal for this watch. The one shown here was a replacement; and it is not as flush as the original.

 

Thank you

trudeman,

Yes, it is very possible.

Being You have owned the Watch since new I'd suspect the Case reference number is still visible inside the Caseback. By using the Case reference number the original glass can be determined / located.
