Hi,

just like Tom I have tons of crystals but this time not the one I would need.
I have a 1937 Diamond Carole which came without a crystal. The style / caliber combination is 338 / 271.
There are several variants of the Carole (Flex, Deluxe, Superb,...) all use the same crystal.
Does anyone have a crystal catalog showing which crystal would fit the Carole? Should be Tonneau shaped about 11.5x11.5mm.

Have a look into the May 26th calender sheet, there is one of the Caroles pictured.
A kind member of this board gave me tow part numbers last night, I will try to locate these first, although a quick Google search was unsuccessful.

Thanks to everyone for at least trying to help. With the help of a friendly member of this forum I found the correct crystal in my collection. It is a Watch Craft 2C115 115. Just as a reference if someone else is looking for a 1938/38 Carole crystal.
