    Does your Oris Aquis do this......

    When I pull out the crown to wind it, change the date or time, sometimes, a lot of the time actually, when I push the crown back in, I can only screw it back in half way. I have to pull it out, rotate the crown a little and try again. Sometimes it takes me a couple of go's to get it to screw back in fully. Is this normal? Is there just a knack to these watches? I ask, as today, I noticed my crystal isn't seated correctly, it isn't quite flush at 3 o'clock. I'm not sure it's worth posting back to for warranty work for just that. It'll probably cost the same just to take it to my local watch maker. But if I've got a faulty crown too, then obviously, it'll be going back. Thanks.

    I sounds like you're accidentally cross threading the crown... very dangerous, and can result in stripping the threads.

    To prevent this, first press the crown in and rotate backwards (counter clockwise) until you hear and feel a click as the threads engage properly. Then screw it down clockwise. If the threads still don't engage properly, though, then the damage may have already been done.

    Try Brent's solution but give the crown tube a good flossing with waxed dental floss first to give yourself the best chance of success.

    Yes, waxed floss will do wonders cleaning any debris out of the threads, and lubricating them as well.

    I have Divers Sixty-Five. It does not do that.

    Holy cow. I thought I had broken crown on my diver – which I have used diving and other sports, and now it is fixed with the dental floss and this reverse click method.

    many thanks!
