    Oris 65 crown

    Hello everyone!

    I recently bought an Oris 65 diver and really like its size and legibility. The only thing that bothers me is crown. I find it very sharp and it digs in my hand and as a result I have bruised area of skin where crown touches. How do you find Oris 65 crown, is it comfortable or has sharp edges?

    Here's photo of my watch on NATO strap that helps a little, but not completely.

    The crown on my Hamilton Khaki Field is pretty large too, i just move it up my wrist a bit more. Nothing else you can really do unless you wanna put it on your other wrist.

    Never bothered me and I wear mine all the time. Move it farther up your arm above the wrist bone. If you wear any watch below the wrist bone right on top of the hand, you're going to have this problem.

    thanks for suggestions. I wear my watches quite low and Oris is first one that gives me trouble.

    I have the same problem and it's the reason I got rid of it. Whether I wore it loose or tight, the crown makes a painful mark onto the back of my hand. Supposedly, the 42mm doesn't have this problem and is a 40mm thing.

    When I have this happen, which is not often, as I am a bracelet guy, but it can be painful and annoying, I take a small piece of foam about the size of a quarter or slightly smaller and thin, and place in behind the caseback when I wear it.

    The foam acts as a shim and very slightly lifts the watch off the wrist and gives your hand a bit of "breathing room" from the crown, and it is small enough you don't notice it.

    It does not work for every issue like this, and I would not do it every day, but it has worked (works) for me when I wear one of my "cheese shredder" crowned watches like a pilot.......

    Good luck.

    I have a Diver 65 as my daily wear and I've never had that issue. Its probably an issue of the size of your wrist, where on the wrist your watch tends to settle, etc. In other words, I suspect that its not a problem of the Diver 65 itself, but how a particular watch fits on a particular wrist.

    I also own an Oris Big Crown which also doesn't bother me, so yeah, I think its about where the watch sits compared to where your wrist bends.

    I’ve never had an issue with my 65 or any other watch for that matter. I know it sounds a bit radical but have you thought about using the other wrist so the crown points at your elbow?

    Actually not a bad suggestion. I recently had to switch wrists due to some bruising on my watch wrist. Rather than be a savage and go without, I moved my watches (that would fit) over to my other wrist. Took about a week but soon it felt normal there as well.
