I believe that Rocket RMN256, which measures 25.4mm x 25.4mm, may fit this model.  The measurements seem right for mine, but I haven't actually tried the crystal yet.  Rocket Catalog No. 9 identifies that rather unusual crystal as fitting the Cavalier.

I really should have taken typing in high school.

Mark, if your crystal dimensions are 25.4x25.3 then according to the '65 GS catalog you may have the Cavalier. The GS CMW800 crystal first appears in the '65 catalog as a replacement for the Bulova 1216D crystal and names the model as Cavalier. Subsequent GS catalogs #100 and #200 only reference the Bulova crystal but no model. Of course, you could have an entirely different model name.
