Replacment Crown For Tag

Question

I have had a very hard time locating a replacement Crown for this TAG AQUARACER (REF. CAF1112) I am fine with a generic so if any one has a suggestion. I have seen some companies here in the states offering replacements but they are asking for dimensions and none of the offerings seem to match  what I need.

 

The crown measures 6.00 mm diameter by 4.6 mm tall. The stem measures .8mm (Tap 11) but all of the replacements are for TAP10's. Any suggestions would be greatly valued.

There are two tap systems. In the uk 0.9mm = tap 9 and so on. The American system goes in the opposite direction from what I have seen. So 0.9mm is tap 10 and 0.8mm is tap 11. I would guess that the stem for a large chrono movement would be 0.9mm rather than 0.8mm. Can you check the calibre of the movement? Other options are to use a tap 8 to tap 9 stem extender or some glue ( last resort ) as the tap size is only one size out. With screw crowns the thread is usually much more difficult to match than the tap.
