    Crown seal with Oris Diver?

    Hi everyone,

    Just got an Oris Diver Titan C Date 1000m; this is it:
    Oris Divers Titan "C" Small Second, Date Titanium Ceramic Watch Review | aBlogtoWatch

    Question:

    After completing the usual tread-turns normally, the crown tightens/locks with 1/4 cycle turn only. I mean, it feels like the seal is very rigid, or there is no seal. I can't feel the soft rubber seal going down as I feel when tightening the TAG Aquaracer Calibre5, 500m. Is that normal with this brand? Does it have anything to do with its being 1000meters (different type of seal)? Or?

    Thanks for the attention!))

    First off, welcome to the forum, that's a real nice looking diver.
    I'm not an Oris owner, but I know what you mean, my Benarus 500M snugs up, it dosnt just stop.

    I don't necessarily think a 1000m diver would have gasket material that much harder that is doesn't snug a little, but I could
    be wrong I guess.

    Let me recommend you also post this in the Oris forum, there's probobly die-hard Oris owners in there who can better answer.
    Good luck.

    What you are feeling in terms of resistance isn't the seal, it is the spring that works against the winding stem.

    Thanks for the answer BlackWatch,

    Is there an Oris forum here? Or you mean some other web site? Any hint?
    Thanks))

    DrunkenMonkey, thanks,
    I am not sure if I am following perfectly since English is not my main language;
    I was talking about position '0'. But the winding is position '1'.
    So, just after I am done turning the crown inwards to tighten it, I am close to position '0'. So, it is the position the crown touches the seal right?

    Since I'm not familiar with Oris, I looked up the directions for you.

    Yes, position "0" is the crown screwed tight, and position "1" is when it pops out free from the threads.

    ie:

    Turn the crown anti-clockwise until
    it is released from its thread.
    Now the crown is in position 1 and
    can be operated as described in
    the following chapters
