What crown do I need?

Recommended Posts

Hi, can anyone tell me where I can find a crown to fit the watch in the pics below?

Thanks in advance.

If anyone could advise what crown and stem I need or point me in the right direction so I can order one and hopefully get it working. I have polished the glass and purchased a strap as below.

Have seen bunch similar looking watches in local watchmakers bag. Chances of finding an original, genuine used crown exist. I presume gold plated.

Like simon says, pendent tube diameter, length of tube sticking out of the case and stem diameter and picture. 

Movement caliber?

Do you have the stem, and what is the diameter of the side pendant?

Thanks for the reply. I don’t have the stem. The measurement of the pendant is 3mm inside width. It has a thread inside it.  Also 3mm depth.

I don’t mind if the crown isn’t original. Would be nice if was an original. I would rather see if the watch works before looking for original parts. If I can source a crown and stem first and go from there. As I’m totally new to watches I was looking at stems thinking they were too long not realising that they can be cut to length. I will start by buying a box of mixed stems and find a crown to fit .

Thanks for the reply

You could waste a lot of money, on assortments. Take the dial off and lets have a picture, to ID the movement. Spend no money, yet.

His Simon, what’s the best way to remove the dial? I’m assuming the hands need to be removed, do they just lift off?

I’m new to this so no too sure

You don,t neccessarily have to wind through winding stem, a lot of movements can be wound through the ratchet wheel.
