    watches with small crowns [suggestions please]

    Hej folks,

    since I am wearing a "Victorinox INOX" at the moment, I am very annoyed big the big crown. Today for example I pumped up my bike tyre and the crown pocked in the back of my hand all the time.

    Therefor I am searching for a small and comfortable watch with a small crown. But it should not look too sporty like a "Citizen ny0040" (crown on 8 o'clock = perfect!). It should look discreet and fashionable, like the "Seiko Snxs77" or the "J.Springs BEB518".
    It would be awesome if the watch would be automatic, have saphir crystal, 5ATM and would be under 40mm diameter.

    Please share your ideas with me.


    All the best

    Thanks Mike! The Damasko is a beauty. I discovered it through you some weeks ago
    But the crown is still to big from my point of view. I like crowns that are... -- I would call them "invisible". Like on the Seiko Snxs77.

    I'd check out offset crown watches. I had the same problems until I switched to watches with 4 oclock crowns

    Awesome! Thank you for the term "offset crown watches" - sounds like something I was looking for. I searched for "watches with small crowns" but could not find any good post. :-D

    My alltime favourite watch! But that crown is still to big in my opinion: I think I am looking for offset-crowns.

    Offset crowns aren‘t the solution you are looking for. Offset crowns tend to be a feature of sports and divers watches, not really discreet rhough. And they will ..... into your carpus as well.

    Hi, i had the same problem with my le locle. The crown would poke my wrist and would sometimes even pull out to the date adjust position. It bothered me enough that after only a few months i went looking for a new watch. I went with the longines flagship heritage. It has a very small crown and is so much more comfortable.
