No, I didn’t have to do this. The crown fits to both AliE/eBay cases.

Weird. I was almost certain the tube of the Ali cases were too big for the rollie crown. At least that was the case with my 44mm no crown fiddy case.

Just for clarification:
Crown: Raffles
Cases tested: Luminor 47mm, Radiomir 44/45/47mm

Guys, I received this pocket watch last Friday.
I bought it on eBay (50€) and it’s new.
I have bought many pocket watches but this 6498 movement is an amazing piece,
Power reserve is 50h and it runs very accurately.

So, yesterday I bought a further one from the same seller. New pocket watch and the same price.

Thanks but I didn’t expect to get such a great movement and even for 50€
Hope the 2nd one will be in the same condition.
