I have a Mido Ocean Star with a screw-down crown, which is my 'evenings and weekends' watch, meaning that for the majority of the work week it's sitting at home on a table. Normally in the mornings I give it a good twirl to get it wound enough to last the day so it's still going when I get home, but I slept in this morning and so didn't have time, and when I got home today I saw that it had stopped just after noon.
Now, I know this normally isn't a big deal -- you just move it around a bit to get it going again -- but this watch has a screw-down crown, and, from what I understand, cork inside to keep water out. My question is -- given that cork could presumably wear down pretty quickly if it had a screw constantly being screwed in and out, is it inadvisable to have the watch stop and have to open the crown frequently?
Is it any different than with another automatic that doesn't have a screw-down crown?
