    Question Watches with Mushroom Crowns?

    Laco has watches with crowns that shape sort of similar to the shape of a mushroom. I wonder is there other brands and models with Mushroom Shape crowns? Suggestions? Thanks.

    Remember, mushroom is not onion! I know what an onion crown is. Also, yes, there are many different shapes for mushrooms. Here's a picture of the shape I prefer. I prefer the crown to be round and smooth, not with ridges like the Lacos above.

    Yes, you're correct. But the question is, is there others? Also is there ones with smooth crown and no ridges?

    I‘d say it is a diamond crown on the Laco pilots watches you posted, others sometimes feature an onion crown (like Stowa). Both typical for Flieger watches.

    Hmmh? Knurled bezels are a feature of a Flieger to warrant easy operation. The Aristo 5H85 features a different crown.

    I have this, which I called the crown, Half Onion.


    Yes, knurling helps fingers to turn it easier. But smooth looks better for styling to me. Here's one example I found. Though I don't like the hideous skeleton design.

    the exact same thought came to mind when i saw those photos.

    I think you'll struggle to find any diver with that style of crown.
