    If the watch is poorly cleaned after a service, it can be left in. Or if the watch is sealed poorly, dust can also enter.

    Not unless the lume is "flaking". If it is, then yes.

    I got one of my Tissot watches back from a service a short time ago, and for the life of me could not figure out why at certain angles there appeared to be a fingerprint on the crystal. Cleaned and polished to no avail, then we finally realized that it was on the inside of the crystal. How the heck did that get there? Left on at the factory and I just now noticed it? Case not on tight and someone touched the underside upon re-tightening? No idea, as I was puzzled????? I bought the watch from and AD and also had servicing done there so I was sure it saw limited contact with anyone or anything else except me and I did not remove the crystal. Weird.

    Turned out after a little investigation that is was left there by the jeweler during servicing and he do not notice it until I brought it back to show him, then he owned up to it. Was about to get on the phone to Tissot and ..... about their Quality Control, so I learned a good lesson about checking your watch closely after a service or cleaning to make sure it is correct with no "under-the-crystal-issues".
