    Does anyone else do this? Am I just anal?

    I find myself constantly checking to see if the crown and helium valve on my smp are screwed down fully... even when im not going near water. Could this somehow be bad for the threaded tube (if thats what they're called)?

    Oh and also while driving with my arm out the window, (I wear my watch on the left) the thought of my watch band or spring pins malfunctioning and my watch falling to the asphalt at a speed of 60km plus frequently pops into my head..

    Just wondering if anyone else shared these tendencies of mine..

    Does any one else do this??? The title of this thread should be who DOESN'T do this ; ) I wore my PO today, and twice screwed down the Crown and HE! I am a little compulsive about this (see my bad dream thread about water getting in my AT)

    Sometimes I keep my arm in the window because I don't want to go there with the whole springbar failure thing...

    Zulus. Problem solved.

    Even with my SMP on a zulu I still think about spring bar failures, and yes, I check my crown and HRV about 10 times a day (twice before entering the H2O)!

    good to know I'm not alone!! I really doubt it could be harmful.. unless you were the hulk and stripped the threading!

    zulus are great, but I prefer a nato.. zulus are too thick!

    Talk about being an idiot, I didn't even KNOW my Seamaster had a HRV until I posted pictures of it here. I saw the pic and said to myself 'wtf is THAT?' and eventually figured out it was an HRV....

    LOL!!! Did you think omega just threw it on there for show?

    Maybe its because most divers with an HRV have one thats embedded in the side and doesn't require manual opening and closing (sea dweller, super ocean etc)

    To be honest, my only exposure to an HRV is from my Tag...it looks like its got knurling, but I just cant seem to get a grip on it.
