    Default Pocket Watch Crowns Wanted

    I'm looking for some pocket watch crows, mostly for size 16s, onion shape, Dennison cases, gold filled if possible. Can anyone help please.

    I've just used the last one. The dimensions are (mm)

    Outside Dia 9.8
    opening 7.0
    Height 6.9
    Det 4.7
    Tube OD 2.6
    Tap circa 1.9

    Its frustrating when servicing pocket watches not to be able to replace a worn crown

    I have hundreds of them, but I don't have them cataloged. There are all kinds of them for auction on eBay.

    I have seen many on ebay, as you say, and bought several lots, however they are all mixed lots and I have only been able to use 2 or 3 out of all of them.

    Hmm. I hope that's not the case for me. Hopefully someone on here will be able to help you out.

    would it be possible to pick a few out with something like the outside and inside diameters I'm looking for, please.

    That might take all day to do. What does "onion shape" mean? It would help to be able to see a photo of one. Have you tried daveswatchparts.com to see if he has one?

    I guess they have different names for the different styles, picture attached of the type I need.

    I have done business with this guy in India a few times; the prices are reasonable and the postage is unbelievably cheap: http://oldswisswatches.com/watch_cro...rs_listing.htm
    Whether or not they fit pocket watches, I don't know.

    Steve,
    Besides being called pumpkins, they are considered dust proof, at least when a ring of leather is placed in the recess.
