    Problem with Invicta crown tube / crown won't screw in

    Hello,
    i recently received this Invicta, wore for few days .. let it rest. Then again today i unscrew the crown and it poped, like is not screw in
    The crown is attached just it won't screw back in, guess the thread is worn...

    Anybody have experience with Invicta and similar problem, please share.
    The construction of the crown/crown tube aswell, if its possible to change, i did not see spare parts
    I wrote to Invicta help center, but im not counting on that much.

    This is the Invicta Corduba series, with swiss eta 7750. With much pain i manage to screw half turn so it is ok to wear, no WR i guess
    but when i pull it (should be screwed) it pops..

    Thank in advance for any comments, only interested in a fix comments.

    Stripped crown tube most likely, any good watchsmith should be able to repair it.

    This appears to be TI model. If the screw tube is also TI it is much softer than steel and could have stripped easily. Also sounds like the crown spring is too strong for it's purpose.

    You said "only a few days". Perhaps you are entitled to replacement or refund?

    Also, a good watchmaker may have parts that fit even if not Invicta's own.

    Otherwise you have to send it to Invicta Service Center in Utah (if in USA, they have 5 total around the globe):

    Deffo sounds like the tube threads are stripped. Hope you get it sorted.

    Did you buy it off ebay? It sounds like the crown tube was stripped by the old owner. I would see if I could return it, or get a refund.

    Refund, and do not buy an invicta for your next watch.
