I have a question for all and the owner especially regarding GPW-1000 in general.
Let me tell you my story first.
I never own more than one wristwatch, usually when I have a new wristwatch, it means the previous watch is either gone or destroyed (mine was accidentally thrown out from the helicopter and gone somewhere deep in the ocean, a blunder of mine). So after a week feeling naked without a wristwatch, after squeezing my thought for days, I bought a GPW-1000T.
Maybe this is the BEST wristwatch I ever own. It tells time accurately, which is the BEST part for me. I can rest assure and don't have to sync it to and atomic time manually every week.
Now here comes my predicament.
After around 40 days of wearing it (roughly of course, It's a G-Shock), as usual, I clean and rinse the watch every night before sleep, when I wipe it, I found the crown was unlocked! It means I rinse it when the the wristwatch was unlocked. I feel super terrible.
The morning after, I bath the wristwatch under the sunlight after for two hours, unlocked, hopefully it will dry the inside part (well maybe, I honestly don't know). After that I test all the functionality, everything was good as before, able to sych time and sych time and position around 30 seconds, able to do stopwatch, able to do timer, able to do alarm, illumination, single and double click setting, etc. It's a big relief because all is good BUT I still can't shake the bad feeling the night before.
So my questions:
1. Does anybody got the same situation like me? Suddenly unlocked? I didn't remember that I unlocked the crown. I'm quite surprised when I knew the crown was unlocked.
2. Is it still water tight when the crown unlocked? because I rinse it while the crown was unlocked (not one or two clicks, just unlocked). Even if you locked it in, you still can see a gap from behind...
3. Should I prepare for the worst?
Thank you very much for any kind answer.
