Should we not have the 'Accutron' name in the ID?

ACCUTRON DEEP SEA N-0

The 218 D or 218-1 Movement works best with a 344 Renata Button Cell Battery. Battery must be placed with the NEGATIVE side facing UP. In the pic the battery positive side is facing up which could damage the regulated Voltage. As far as Crystals, I use Esslinger Stella Low Dome here the link. But please measure first. The Crystal must be lightly filed and professionally glued and pressed. I restore all Accutrons for low rates. See link: www.esslinger.com/stella-watch-crystal-ld-lo-dome-watch-crystals/

JEV1A .... Stella Low Dome ... does not have date magnifier .... is there a replacement crystal with the date magnifier ... short of sourcing an original old stock 702awd crystal ?
