    Disconcerting noise when screwing down crown on my Tudor Black Bay

    Calling all Black Bay owners there's a disconcerting noise coming from the crown when I'm screwing it down. It's a kind of crunchy, crackly sound. It sounds like cartilage cracking. Is this normal for this model? I've never encountered a noise this worrying. Does anyone know what it's coming from? A rubber seal/gasket misaligned inside there crown?

    Please help, really could do with the peace of mind.

    Had a BBR and the crown action was smooth as butter, including a smooth and silent screw down.

    Sounds like maybe you managed to get some sand, dirt or some sort of debris in the crown stem threads and/or crown. Google dental floss and crown stem cleaning.

    Mine is smooth as silk and silent. Have a professional check it.

    When I had mine the crown was smooth and silent.

    There could be a bit of crud in the threads so give them a good flossing with waxed dental floss. It may be the female threads that are the problem so if it doesn't fix it the first time have another go. If there is some junk fast in the threads of the crown itself you may need to take it to a pro in order to have it sorted.
