THE GLASS CRYSTAL IS A BEVELED CRYSTAL BUT IS LOOSE, THIS HAD A YELLOWED PLASTIC CRYSTAL IN IT ON RECEIPT, I HAVE RUN OUT OF MANY GLASS CRYSTALS BUT THIS IS CLOSE AND A NICE BEVEL SO GLUE IT IN. A NOTE: THE REASON MANY IF NOT MOST MILITARY WATCHES ARE 7 JEWELS IS DUE TO THEM RUNNING UNDER COLD CONDITIONS HOT CONDITIONS BETTER THAN A JEWELED MOVEMENT WHERE THE JEWEL SETTINGS ETC CRACK UNDER THE TEMPERATURE AND KNOCK ABOUT CONDITIONS. THE SAME APPLIES TO EXPLORERS WATCHES. SOME THINGS I START OFF CHEAP AND SOME THINGS I DONT, I SELDOM GET MORE THAN 1 OF THESE EVERY FEW YEARS.
