I've found the Cousins website helpful for finding Omega part numbers, just search for the case reference.    

https://www.cousinsuk.com/document/search?SearchString=166.0020

The crystal diameter is 31.60 mm for this case reference.  I would recommend getting the genuine Omega crystal as the profile of the crystal integral in sealing the case.

Agree with that, at £26.96 shouldn't be passed on. Plus you should get the almost invisible Omega mark on it. I could't see it on my Constellation until told about that.

P/N PZ5072 (Steel ring) is not restricted, otherwise I couldn't put the price above already. I don't know and I don't promise that is identical to your existing one.

    • I got this little beauty  at a swap meet on Sunday.  I changed the battery and still nothing.  I know nothing about quartz. Is there a trick I kneed to know?  Is it worth taking down to be repaired?  Should I look for an ETA movement to put inside?  It does have the gold matching band in good condition.
    • So jdm if you want I can mail you the watch of your dreams.

    • Thank you AndyHull and JerseyMo for responding with really helpful instructions!  You guys rock!  i have to get some rodic to help hold these two little mini-monsters in place. I was trying to use a small bit of sticky-tack but it didn't hold well enough.  I would get the screw into position but it would fall over when the screwdriver touched the screw.   For the 24 movement that still has the broken screw end in it, I will try to get that out after I get the lever and screw installed in my working 24.  And yes, I will install the crown/stem AFTER I have the lever and screw in place on the plate. Again, thanks for your help- i really appreciate it!!!  Will let you know when I get things back together.
