    Question You ever wear a watch with moisture in it on a regular basis?

    I do.

    I wear a Seiko 5 with a cracked crystal on a osyter band.

    It took like an hour to get the band on too.

    Get it fixed. Moisture will make a mess of the dial and hands, and will rot the lume.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Thanks, but the cost and labor will probably cost more then the watch is worth.

    If I notice moisture I dry it out.

    I used to...once I accidentally left the crown unscrewed on my Citizen ECODrive and it got submerged. I didn't notice until a few days later when I saw the condensation that it happened. Funny thing is that the watch worked just fine after submersion and has worked great since then (about 5 years ago). Took it to a watch shop and they disassembled and dried it for me...then gave me a lecture* on screwing in the crown !!!

    *(It was a great old Chinese man...he kept asking me "You never own Rolex? You never own Rolex? How come you no know about crown?...the incident has since become an inside joke between my wife and I, as she went with me and watched this old man lecturing me, but at least I make sure the crown is screwed in all the time now. )

    I've been fortunate enough to not have that problem yet. *knock on wood*

    My very first watch, when I was a little kid, was a Timex that you wind. One day, we all went swimming at the Y where we always did. I jumped in the pool and started swimming under water. When I came up for air, my brother was yelling my name and laughing "Your watch is on!" I got out of the pool and took it off. Did I mention that it was not even water resistant. Well, the watch was ruined. Ever since, I have been obsessed with water resistence on my watches and have never owned a watch that you couldn't swim with.

    This is my second Seiko that has a hair-line crack in the crystal.

    What's funny is, before the crystal cracked on my Seiko 5.

    There was moisture in the watch, and the small crack in the crystal actually helped vent the moisture from my body heat.
