I'm not sure if its the correct crown,  Its a signed one.

Probably a replacement, but at least it is a Bulova crown..

Extremely fast rates are sometimes caused by magnetism, and any qualified watchmaker will be able to de-magnetize it for you as well as do any repairs, of course. I should mention caution in this regard, don't try and de-magnetize it with a tunnel-type tool demagnetizer, it might make it much worse.
