    Wash the crown? how do i do that?

    i think i remember reading, in the instructions for my U1, that after contact with salt/water and sand, one should wash the crown (?) in clean water? wouldn't that be bad? unscrewing the crown than exposing it to water?

    i'm gonna go and try and find that section of the instructions, but...does anyone else remember reading this?

    how do you guys "clean" your watch after it comes in contact with less than desirable substances?

    i found this... maybe it was what i was thinking of. which locking mechanism are they speaking of?

    "We recommend washing the locking mechanism after the dive in order to prevent an adhesion of the mechanism
    by salt crystals"

    No clue. The only part that has been sticking on my U2 is the bezel. Combination of salt and sand.
    I always wash the watch (when I shower myself) after it has been in salt water.
    It has worked sofar!
    I would not wash the crown if unscrewed. Asking for trouble, I think!

    i would say never subject your watch to any water source with the crown
    not fully closed. you can clean the crown and the entire watch using soapy water or tooth paste with a tooth brush and finish with clean water.

    the locking part refers to the clasp and the deployant. never wash the watch with the crown out. salt water doesn't get in any farther than fresh water, so a quick rinse with tap water gets rid of any sea water.
