    Um, where did this movement shot come from? It's a picture of a picture in a book.

    hey @Larry S - that movement photo does look a bit....like its copied...from a book. Very blurry such that there's no information there that's usable

    It looks like a picture of a picture, but the strap is the same if you look at the stitching and croc grain.

    There is a faint mark at the dial foot (11.30) a newer replacement crown and a worn rotor axle (?).

    As Hoi says, that's the newer replacement crown. It's a bit taller than the original, making it easier to wind.

    The crown appears thicker than the correct one and looks like those for the *older* Connies with cal. 50x and bumper movements. This one not only looks bigger on the outside, but also has a bigger tube size and will not seal properly if the watch still has the original tube. This is more concerning than the outside appearance. If the crown wiggles in the closed position, it is the wrong size.

    I have the correct decagonal small size posted for trade in the for sale section. If this is the case and you want to trade crowns...

    No wiggles when closed. All seems to work properly. Given the chore of date setting, I like the crown.
