    The title of this thread should be "Searching for my stop knob" :)

    In seriousness, finding an original part could be very tricky. Best bet is to take it to a reputable watchmaker and hope they can source one from somewhere. Otherwise, keep an eye on eBay but you could be waiting a while.

    Thanks for info.
    Have had it in a box over the last 15 or 20 years.
    Now I start to care about it.
    Can someone help me to identify it?
    Year?
    Valjoux?
    Market value?
    Thanks!

    Hi, very nice watch. 3641 I believe, Valjoux 92, early 1960s.

    The part you are looking for is the pusher cap. As Imagwai said, a reputable watchmaker is your likely best bet of finding one-it has to be the correct size. If a cap alone can't be sourced a new pusher may be needed in whole.

    Best of luck with it!
    Steve
