    Hello everybody
    I would like to have som feedback on which crown I will have on my 150.012-65. I look at the moon book and then there are 2 options B1.32 and B2.32 I have B2.32. could it be that the crown has changed or if it came with that crown from the beginning? The rest of the watch seems to be 100% original

    Thanks in advance

    Björn

    I assume your watch should have an A1 crown. Let's see a photo of the pushers from the bottom. When the crown is replaced, the pushers are also often replaced.

    Okay thank you
    I have low pushers. He changed bracelets in the early 70's so he might exchange the crown then

    Is it worth looking up a crown or does not it matter?

    Hello mate. Yes it would have done. I remember (when I was a kid in the 1960's) getting reprimanded for pulling on the links. I remember an old stainless steel bracelet laying among other discarded items in my Mum's kitchen draw. It was there for years. Good chance that was the original bracelet???:eek:

    My Dad probably had that 1171/633 service bracelet fitted in the early 1970's. Certainly it was on the watch when this photograph was taken sometime in the early, to mid 1970's. It also had, square end chrono, service hands and a 32 tooth service crown fitted[.

    18 months ago, Simon Freese (then at STS) had the correct hands and a vintage, 24 tooth, flat foot crown fitted, as part of a full service.

    Your crown is totally functional, but if you prefer having the correct crown, you can find one.
