    Wobbly Vintage Omega Seamaster Automatic Crown

    It changes time smoothly but its a bit wobbly when its in the in position. And very wobbly when the crown is pulled out. Runs smooth and can adjust the time and feels smooth.

    Also, when its in the "in" position, I can easily spin the crown towards me when wearing it on my left hand.

    Are these ok?

    Hi situ,

    Ask your watchmaker to have a look at it. Loose crowns can be made tight again with a little locktite - a 5 minute fix, but best to get it checked.

    Agreed with James, better be safe than sorry. I had a mishapp on my dynamic because the stem was broken so it will go back to the watchmaker and because of the problem James describes.
