Watch glass curvature

Showing the curvature of the glass. I put this picture into blender and modelled an ellipsoid to best fit the watch glass. When I got the parameters I used these to continue the curve in the top watch section. I also used the parameters to make an ellipsoid brass die for squashing a copper disc to the same curvature, this is to be the dial.
