Advise on Carrera 1st ex crowns stain. steel

Hi, what (I think) I know so far:

In the beginning Carrera watches were delivered with unsigned crowns. On later Carreras the crowns were signed with Heuer.

Few questions about that topic:

- Was the diameter / thickness of the unsigned crowns different from the later ones?
- Had all first ex Carreras the unsigned crowns or changed Heuer the crowns during the production time of the first ex?
- If yes can the beginning of the change be specified by serial numbers or production year?
- Is there a write up on this topic or the sizes of the different crowns ( diameter, thickness, tube, stem)?
- Does someone know a crown (generic or contemporary) which looks quite exactely as the original one and could be used for replacing an unsigned original crown?

Please email me to or post here

Any kind of help is highly appreciated, thanks for your time!
