    Question Is there a proper way to screw down a dive crown without stripping it

    Just wondering?

    It's metal to metal contact.
    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.

    G-Shock MTG930DA-8V, G-Shock GW-5600J-1. G-Shock Riseman GW9200-1, G-Shock GW6900-1

    Crown threads can become damaged if they are crossed while screwing the crown in. It's very difficult to do but it does happen. One way to ensure the threads do not become crossed is to rotate counter-clockwise for up to a full turn, or until the thread "engages" correctly. (you will hear and/or feel this happen.) Once you have done this you can be sure that the thread is not crossed and can screw in clockwise as usual.

    This is a little trick my dad taught me, and you can apply it to any type of mechanical screw.

    The other thing to note is that it should take almost no force to screw down a crown. If you start to feel increasing resistance to the turning; stop, back up and try again.
