    I need a chronograph button for the pictured Universal Tri-Compax in stainless steel. The case measures about 36mm in diameter. The movement is a caliber 287.

    Thanks in advance! 77364.jpg

    Did you check with the Doc? Look in the Bestfit catalog and you might find a suitable replacement. Then give him a call--he might be able to help you out. He has gotten pushers for me in the past. George

    Where would I find chronograph buttons in the Bestfit Catalog? I took a quick look, and didn't see anything.

    Thanks for the tip! I'll give Doc a call.

    I'm still in need of this button.
    I found the buttons in the Bestfit catalog, and based on comparison, the one I need is 688A. Although 688 and 676A look pretty close.

    Any luck with the doc? He has found them for me in the past, but it's hit or miss if he can get the style you need. BTW He was away over the holidays but is back now, so if you had trouble getting him he should be around now. George

    I got in touch with the Doc. He doesnt' have the button. Nobody even has the bestfit version. I tried every supplier I can think of.

    Does anyone have one they can measure for me? It's the upper button. A picture and dimensions would be very helpful!

    Thanks in advance,
    Derek

    I see that Jules borel has buttons in gold listed for the caliber 285. anyone have any idea if they would fit my 287? The upper button is listed as part number x/2182.

    Thanks in advance!
