One of the many Bulova 23 watches. I saw this one in the data base but don't remember where.

What is the inside diameter of the retainer ring Gerard?

It must be missing the sweep hand so the crystal will have to have a high dome for clearance..

The inside diameter of the ring is 29.8mm. I have some round crystals but they only fit the body of the watch. It seems to tight for the ring,i don't want to break it.
