is that the screw that allows you to remove the stem??

if it is, the set lever screw from most of the 23 series will fit. I have a few used ones if you need one.

Many thanks JP!

I will have to ask the watchmaker as I got the name of the piece from him, I myself am a total amateur...

But I have seen the piece, its a tiny pin, maybe 3 mm long, very thin but a bit thicker in half of it.

Is there any chance you could take a photo of the piece so I can make sure?

I have another 23, a ANAC, and he did confirm the piece was the same.

Thanks again,

The part you describe is exactly as I thought I'm just not used to the terminalogy he used. I have several 23 series watches that have good stem release screws. If you want one of thes PM me and I will get it on it's way to you.

Thanks JP. Meanwhile my watchmaker suggested I should get the screw and the lever itself: I got an offer for both and took it.

Looks like part #48, setting lever screw.  Awesome to have incredibly generous resources such as JP and others here.  Also, I noted there are several listed at eBay presently, search under "bulova 11anac setting lever screw."

Thanks Archie for calling my attention to eBay, I was surprised to find so many offers for 11ANAC pieces there. Prices seem a bit high though.
