I have this Bulova that runs pretty good, but the crown is so small it's kind of tough to wind. I also need to replace the crystal. Does anyone know where I could find a crystal, and a larger crown? I'm not sure of the year or model. Hopefully the pics will help to identify it. I appreciate any responses, thank you. Eli

In order to determine the Model I would need to see more of the case detail. Your picture is a bit too close to make that out.
From what I see , it looks to be a 1950's model watch. A picture of the movement would also be helpful.
Once we know the model, I'll have the crystal for it as well.

Thanks for the help. I hope these pics are better. My phone is being frustratingly stubborn.

Case and dial appear to be the "Douglas"model, from 1945/46.

Try to remember, Just because you read it on the internet, doesn't make it true!

Thanks watchdoc. I'd call that ID spot on.
I'm sure I have that crystal in both glass and Acrylic. As for the crown. The one that is there is correct for the watch. It may be a little small for your fingers but I don't think I have anything larger with the same tap size.
