I recently purchased an Elgin "B.W. Raymond" RR pocket watch. The case was also by Elgin and had "Elgin RR" imprinted just under the crown. Unfortunately, I was not paying attention to the details and watch came to me with a non-original crown.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I might find a crown for this case, even one that is closer to the diamond shaped crown in the watch today?

A picture of the watch and crown can be found on the re-printed version of the Townsend book on American RR Watches - page 65.

Thanks, JeffL

Jeff,
Sorry but no one makes exact replacements, just generic types. You will have to hope to find one from a used case or maybe from one of the parts people who deal with used parts.
