I have a business repairing clocks. I also repair watches, but not for paying customers, as I'm self-taught.
I recently got a very battered Citizen Blue Angels, model JR 3080-51L, movement C651, case T000959. The stem is broken, the crystal and bezel are badly scratched. I've polished the crystal, case and bracelet, so I need some parts to finish the job.


I definitely need a new crown/stem assembly. I'd like a new bezel and inner bezel ring, depending on the cost.


None of my normal suppliers carry parts for this model, and Citizen UK haven't replied to my email.
Any ideas where I can get parts for this watch?

Have you checked with Cousins? If you cannot order directly from Citizen (not every repairer is able to) then any Citizen AD can order parts directly from Citizen.

Yes, I checked with Cousins, but they don't list the movement or case style.


I didn't realise that they could order unlisted parts - I'll order from them and see what happens.

Heard back from Cousins, and they can supply the crown and stem. I've ordered them - hopefully, they are the right ones.

The crown and stems arrived today from Cousins, and they were the right parts!
Trimmed 1.6mm from the end of the stem, glued on the crown, a tiny amount of silicone grease on the O-ring inside the crown, and the job's a good'un.


I used slip-fit cyano, which takes an age to cure, but is 100% waterproof.

The finished watch, with polished crystal, case and bracelet. The brushed finish isn't perfect, but, since the bezel is badly scratched, it'll only ever be a beater:
