Crystal Needed and/or part # needed for 1968 Bulova Accutron 218 D, Case #2663

Submitted by Tourspin on March 21, 2020 - 2:02pm

I'm looking for a NOS (preferred) or aftermarket crystal, or part # if no one has a crystal, for a Bulova Accutron 218 D, Case #2663. The crystal  measures exactly 29.65mm (according to my calipers). I've searched high and low for the part # with no luck.  Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks - Andy

Not sure if this is any help. I've had a thorough look through the catalog (although not the supplement).

The 1972 ABC Case Parts Catalog doesn't list a 2663. 

Cases 2661 (218D, 2181), 2662 (2181), A2662 (218D) all take a 1222-4 crystal stock code.

Then next entry is for a 2664, but this is listed as a Caravelle.

The 1222-4 covers a good number of models (more than most), so you might be in luck. 

Alternately you could get away with a standard crystal with the right diameter.

Thanks for your time searching!  Most certainly appreciate it. I’ll see if I can find a 1222-4 and see if it will work. —Andy
