Pictures in the discussion section would be fun...

Can't help with parts... as I recall these crowns are hard to find. However, the style was not unique to Gruen. Maybe some level of interchangeability; gotta remember what the other brands were...

There was at least the French brand LIP that sold the same model as ECLIPSO. In fact Gruen got the rights to market the CARRE from LIP.

From what I can see the ECLIPSO featured the same crown shape as the CARRE, which you can see best on the first add below. Unfortunately the picture of an actual ECLIPSE at the bottom seem to have the same problem you have. The ECLIPSO is as rare as the CARRE unfortunately, but it will at least increase your chances to find one. Dunno if LIP used the same movement, so the crown tap size may be different from Gruen...
