    This is my first post and I am a total beginner. I have an old Ingersoll Automatic which has no crown and what appears to be an incorrect stem (see picture). I am proposing to shorten the stem and obtain a replacement crown. Should the crown accommodate the protubing tube or sleeve or should this be removed also and a flat crown installed?

    Hi Rob and welcome to the forum.
    You would want to fit a crown that has a recess to accomodate the tube. I remember seeing an explanation up on one of the suppliers websites that explains how to fit one much better than I can explain here. Give me a few minutes (or maybe an hour or so) and I’ll try to locate that page. I think it was up on Caskers site but not sure.
    Back in a bit.

    Ok Rob, it turned out to be up on Ofrei website. I think this is the page.
    Lot’s of stuff on it that is interesting but most doesn’t really apply to your watch until you scroll down a bit to where it says ‘Ordering Crowns by Description‘.
    I think that should help a bunch.
    Here’s the link: http://www.ofrei.com/page892.html
    Good luck and Enjoy!
    Bob
