    Re: AQUARACER 500M CLUB

    For me it was more or less an impulse buy. Tried it on, loved it and bought it 20 minutes later.

    This morning I had to wind it and set the time because it has stopped and somehow the crown operation seemed very strange. After doing some research I found the dreaded crown issues.
    It seems that for mine not even a full turn of the crown is needed to unscrew it; the same when screwing it in. I am not forcing it at all not to break anything.

    One question would be...does the crown need stay flush with the case? On mine I have like half a millimetre distance.

    It is my first serious watch with a screw-in crown and I guess I am not experienced enough to tell if I have the crown problems or not.
    But if I know that a potential problem might be there and I cannot really tell if it's broken or not, I really can't enjoy the watch. I am even thinking on trying to return it.

    3/4 turns till it's tight just isn't right, or is it? Maybe I don't have the feel for it. Damn...it really messed up my Sunday.

    Thanks!

    Here's mine. Love the detail on the dial, the rubber coating (especially on the crown when you wind it), the cool caseback, the cyclops over the date, the clicks of the bezel and the lightness of titanium. And oh yeah, digging the green...

    Would this be the right thread to mention Aquagraph? Since it's a 500m Aquaracer based model?

    I love how the forum just poured in to answer your question. I have not heard of that problem. I wish I had the answer for you. Now I guess I have to check mine.

    Re: AQUARACER 500M CLUB

    just gotten a wak2110 and my first tag.

    I tried winding the watch and find alot of resistance when trying to wind it.
    Also similarly when screwing down the crown. Is this normal?

    I still get about 4 turns when screwing down.

    There is no problem with date and time adjustments.

    I have lots of watches with unique and interesting color accents. I really admire the simplicity of this watch. It's like a nice black tuxedo.

    Planning on buying this in a few weeks but reading all about the negative comments about it is making me thin twice.
