The crystal is so badly scratched up on mine that it's anybody's guess what condition the dial is in. And it looks sort of white, so maybe it's not ever original.


This is the crystal you need to look for

index.php?t=getfile&id=1515&private=0



Does this crystal come with the gasket, and are they difficult to find?

I just received my Imp274 and was really happy to have the dial clean up well.

It needs a new crystal and, although the gasket is present, I'm not too certain it has waterproofing capabilities any longer.

Also, I'm missing the crown with half stem.

I'm looking for sources for these parts. I do have the hands. I just haven't put them back on yet.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
