The little symbol on the crown is normally associated with the Accutron (tuning fork) models.  Hope this helps.

 Greetings timetravellers!

I am new to this forum, and here goes!

Firstly, I have to compliment sscott4 for his impeccable taste in watches;) - you see, the last picture of the beautiful 1970 Deep Sea Chronograph  is infact displaying the very watch I own. I purchased it on ebay a couple of years ago. Here is a link to the sellers own blog with even more pictures: http://watch-out.blogspot.com/2008/04/vintage-bulova-chrono-diver-with-mark.html

Unfortunately I had an accident recently and got a small crack in the crystal. I want to replace it, preferably with a new old stock, as quite a few of these are available on ebay. The trouble is I do not know what specifications I ought to be looking for. I will of course have it replaced professionally by a watchmaker here in Oslo, Norway.

If anyone could point me in the right direction I would be much obliged!

Sscott4 - I hope you do not feel I am barging in on your thread! Perhaps the information I am seeking is of interest to your own restoration project? Best of luck!!

Any info on a crystal for this watch would be greatly appreciated!

Martin,

It's a Divers watch, and also a chronograph so I vote Deep Sea Chronograph for all three watches.
