I used a different crown. The one that it came with looked way to large..  Please advise

It certainly looks like the Minuteman case but something tells me it has another name. Still searching.

I concur .   I saw it here while doing some research but can't find it again.

Panel members - I can't find a match. I rather think the diamonds are aftermarket. Should we label this Minuteman?

As written on the other site:

Note: Once thought to be strictly an aftermarket addition, the diamonds on the bezel of this watch may, in fact, be part of the original design.
