Just wondering if you could chime in on how you do to clean your watch crystals before installing them. Often when you buy new old stock crystals they are full of fingerprints and other dirt accumulating during the years in storage. Sometimes it's enough to use some rodico to clean them but from time to time I find them very hard to get perfectly clean. What's your ways of cleaning a crystal before installing?
I use a glasses lense cleaning cloth and breath on the crystal first. Huff huff huff then buff Then I use a puffer wind blowing squeezy thing to shift out any dust that may have landed on the crystal. Simples!
I also use a very soft artificial hair art brush to gently dust off the dial before refitting the movement into the case and the huffer puffer to remove any dust before final fitting.
