    What's your favorite Crown Design/Style???

    I'm working on a mod project and need to do a little brainstorming. Can you guys post pictures of your favorite watch crown designs or styles?

    Personally, My favorite design is the cross-thatched knurled pattern, as seen on this crown:




    I just don't think that this design works for what I'm trying to do.

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    I like the ones on my semi-Vintage Breitling:


    Easy to use, but does not dig into the wrist.

    Presumably you are talking about a sporty style watch if you're considering a knurled crown. For sports watches, my favourite is the 6105:

    Ishmus mentioned that the knurled design would not work for his project. So maybe not a Sports watch.

    Yes. Yes, he did. This is why one should read the whole post, even the text beneath the pics!

    On dress watches and other non-sporty watches, I like a plain crown a la this Sea-Gull:
