    Help Sourcing a Crown

    Hi everyone, was hoping someone could advise me on where i might get a crown for my vintage Hyde Park Moonphase watch.

    Bought it on ebay a while and have eventually got it back from a full service its going great but I would really love to source a genuine crown for it if anyone has any suggestions please help. Im a bit of a novice on all of this so any help at all would be much appreciated.

    Any other advice or recommendations on what to do would be great, see pics below, a leather strap on its way also in pace of the NATO.

    You might have a better chance of winning the lottery. How is the original different from yours? If you know what the original looks like, a watchmaker should be able to source a replacement that looks the same unless there is something very unique about it.

    Not sure how common that design is. Maybe send the pic to a few watchmakers and get their thoughts. Did you ask at the place where you had it serviced?

    There is a vintage watch parts group on FB, maybe they could help you out? There are a lot of odds and ends that I see on there.
