    856 UTC crown issues?

    Hi everybody. I recently picked up an 856 UTC about a month ago and the crown action and winding were super smooth. I was extremely impressed. However I’m now noticing that there’s a bit of resistance when unscrewing the crown, not much but enough for me to notice. Additionally when I try to screw the crown back it it feels like it’s gridning against a gasket...like the threads will catch and start to screw and then I’ll feel this little “pop” that sounds like metal on rubber and the crown will screw down normally. The crown sets/winds as it should but I’m just wondering if these issues are something I should worry about...can anybody test their 856 crown to see if they have the same “pop/click” when screwing the crown back in? Any help is appreciated!!

    Are you sure you didn't cross thread it a bit? There could be some sort of contaminate perhaps? Tough call without having it in hand.
    Too many flipped...

    I just tried mind and definitely did not notice a pop sound or feel when screwing it back down.

    Mine generally works fine, but from time to time after unscrewing it doesn't seem to engage to wind etc. I just have to move it back and forwards a bit until it does (with a click). I am guessing it might have a bit of muck in there.

    Have also done a bit of hand winding until I read that it could bugger up the movement. Hopefully I haven't...

    3 years old btw, and wear most days.

    Nothing similar with the crown of my 856 UTC.

    I think you should clean the crown using the dental floss, and if possible, put some lubrication in.
