Questions on parts for a Gubelin Ipso-Vox

Postby gatorcpa » Wed Jun 27, 2018 4:47 pm

I've recently purchased a JLC/Gubelin Ipso-Vox Parking model:

This is a manual-wind cal. 814 version, so I think that the case reference is equivalent to an E856. Serial number is 1,378,XXX. Case number is 765,XXX. I think this dates from about 1958.

Do you have the specifications the crowns for this model -- height, width and tap? Any idea if these would these have been "JL" signed?

I'd like to try to replace these crowns with the correct ones.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
gatorcpa

It looks like the original crowns are not signed, judging from an old catalog shot.

Thanks Zaf, that's kind of what I thought.

Is there anyplace I can look to get the dimensions of the crowns?

I'd like to find a matched pair of unsigned replacements.

Mine is in a safe deposit box, I don't go it to often. I have a photo, one crown signed one not, I believe the lower one is correct.
