Accutron 214 crystal replacement

Submitted by JohnW on May 7, 2023 - 3:39pm


I have an Accutron 214, model # 203, from 1960. It has the football shape 14k inlays, but also has a cracked crystal.

It seems this this model never had an official  Bulova case number, and so the Bulova catalog does not show what crystal it uses.

I measured the crystal as 28.5 mm diameter.  I was planning to get a G&S PHD25 "high dome" to try, but I see that there is also an, "extra high dome", available.

Has anyone done this before, or know what the recommend crystal is?

UPDATE: I tried 28.5mm, but it was a very loose fit. I then got a 28.9 mm (G&S PHD 25 1/2), and that seems work.
