Recently purchased a Raleigh with a bad replacement crown and questionable crystal. Any pictures of what would be appropriate (original) for this watch?

Thanks,
Dana

Thanks, Adam. Definitely not the type of crown on my copy.

Sellers on eBay do sometimes offer packages of "vintage" crowns - you may not get the style shown above, but should find something suitable - crowns were not signed at the time this model was produced.

And the Raleigh is very difficult to find without wear on the bezel corners. Crystal cutters will do you a one-off glass or plastic crystal.
