I've now learned that the proper crown for my Carrera is 6.7-6.8 mm, and signed with the Heuer shield.
: I am looking for advice and help sourcing a correct crown for my
: 1968 Heuer Carrera 12 Tachy, Ref. 2447T. It's currently in for
: service and the watchmaker noted that it is fitted with an
: incorrect 6.0mm signed Heuer crown (done by Tag Heuer in the
: 1990s - thank you very much Tag!).
: Correct me if I am mistaken, but I believe I need a 6.5 mm signed
: crown. Looking for something authentic and appropriate for this
: great watch.
: Thanks, and happy holidays.
