He sells them for the 62-6198 and 52-0110. There isn't a true replacement for the 51-2273, but the MilSub insert for a SKX007 is about as close as you can get and it does fit.
The inserts he sell are the correct pattern for the earlier watches but both my 52-0110's have different pattern inserts (with dots all the way around).
They're good quality though, and fit well.

That's a good point. It does fit both but is visually correct only for the 62-6198. The 52-0110 should have dots all around, as you mentioned. Good to get the right information out there!

That's accurate. The 52-0110, 62-6198, and 51-2273 all take Citizen Crystal # 54-51810.

Inspired by your information I've just changed the crystal in my 51-2273 for one of the recent batch off ebay and it fitted a treat! I'm really happy as this is one of my favourite watches and a badly scratched crystal was really letting it down.

And after...

Nice job. Look great with fresh crystals! About the only thing I can do without killing a watch!

That's a pretty remarkable change! I've got two of them on hand for my 52-0110 and 51-2273 but I haven't taken the time to change them out. Perhaps now I will feel equally encouraged!
