    Oris Aquis Crown issue.

    Hey All

    Just had a quick question, the crown on my Oris Aquis sometimes does not fully pop out into the winding position when I unscrew it.

    It kind of half pops out and will then immediatly pop out the rest of the way when I go to wind it, I am careful to only nudge the crown around a tiny bit until I feel it pop all the way out.

    I have noticed that it usually happens more often if I unscrew the crown slowly, but it still happens sometimes even if I unscrew it quickly.

    Otherwise the watch is performing really well, this doesn't seem normal though does it?

    Don't know if it is "normal" or not. We would need a watchmaker or someone more versed in movements to comment, BUT........I think this is pretty common among a variety of movements, I have 2824's, STP's, Seiko's, Valjoux, 2892?, and SW200's that do this quite frequently. Don't think you need to worry about it.

    I believe it's normal because you don't unscrew it often enough so it might feel like being stuck.

    Entirely normal. They all do this, and I’ve also noticed it with other brands using different calibers.

    Hey

    Thanks for the responses, has put my mind at ease.

    Truthfully I don't want anyone to touch it and maybe bump anything to mess with the regulation :P I think I got pretty lucky in the movement lottery, my Source of life has been shockingly accurate without exaggerating it is averaging -2/+2 for the 3 months or so I have owned it.

    I am glad to hear that this behavior from the crown is probably just a quirk and not a fault.

    I wouldn’t worry about it. Things will most likely ease up after a bit of use.
