I agree with you, John. I love the watch and want to get it right. I wore mine for the last two days and once I get it set, it seems to be fine, i.e., date changes okay, PR okay, time-keeping okay. But, like you say, something is not right with the crown selector. Mine does all kinds of weird clicking and catching when trying to go between date/winding/screwing. It took me a few times to "learn" what it was doing; now I can, more or less, get it to cooperate and minimize the weirdness, but I fear something will start malfunctioning eventually if not corrected.
