I bought a group of poorly photographed watches because I save this Certina in the mix. The dial appears to be in great shape below that mess of a Crystal. And obviously I need a crown ( I definitely want a signed crown and proper Crystal ). The stem appears to be in place and not broken off. I've been searching by case number 5201-300 but have not found how to track down a Crystal and crown. Would anyone know where to look.? Thanks

As to the crown, try eBay or Cousins UK. Maybe Shum, the resident Certina aficionado and expert, will know a better source.

Concerning the crystal, just get an armoured (with a tension ring) hesalite one. They're pretty generic, and should be anything but hard to get.

Not sure if these are really generic. There was a seller on eBay that had a small hoard of these crystals.

Their habit would be to sell one, then wait awhile and list another.

I wanted two, so they set up a special listing for me. Send them a message through eBay and see.

Thanks gatorcpa. Certainly worth a try. Any idea what measurements the crown would be. I see several on eBay but don't know size other than what I can measure. Not sure how accurate that is.
