Sounds like you have a Spaceview Accutron. Most all of those have a plastic crystal, not mineral glass. Does your Spaceview already have a repro crystal on it? If so, you could purchase another of the same type. Yes, there are several different designs particular to certain Spaceviews. Also, there are different diameters. It isn't possible to recommend one w/o more info. If the case code, stamped in ink inside the case back, is still there you may be able to determine the proper crystal from that code. Unless you have the tools, let a watchmaker, not a Jeweler who just does batteries and straps, do the replacement.

I don't know specifically how many different diameters Bulova used but you can be certain there were many. Diameter isn't the only possible crystal dimension, either. One thing we have learned as Accutron collectors is that Bulova didn't seem to standardize much of anything case-wise. We joke that Bulova may not have made any two Adcutrons alike. An exaggeration, yes, but not too far from the truth. Bulova mad between 5-7 million Accutrons of all 6 calibers with an almost unimaginable number of variations.
