    Some time ago I bought a nice 1948 gold cased IWC dress watch which is original except for the crown. When comparing it to similar IWC dress watches from the same period I think the original crown is what I would describe as a "flattened onion" type.

    Anybody have one of these crowns and is willing to part from one?

    Diameter : 5.0mm
    Tap 10 : 0.90mm
    Case tube : 1,80mm
    Tube inner : 1.40mm

    Pics below are examples of the crown that I’m looking for
