I searched and found a thread about this topic in this forum but it was a general one and unfortunately it did not help me in my problem. So I just opened this thread specifically about OVM in hopes of getting any help and finding more information.
I have been a Steinhart OVM Neu (Version 3) owner for 6 months. After 6 months of gentle use my watch's dive bezel started to get really stiff just today. It didn't meet any corrosive chemical in its 6-months-life, actually it didn't even get a water splash until today after I tried to loosen the bezel by trying to turn it in water which was recommended in a thread I found. Even though it gets loosen up from time to time it reverts back to its stiff, sometimes stuck status. In other threads WD40/oil and dental floss was recommended also. I won't try any WD40/oil on my bezel since I don't trust the fact that any other lubricant than a proper watchmaker lubricant would be sufficient for this problem. I may try the dental floss technique but I fear that I may damage the watch. I have already sent back my beloved watch to guarantee service in march for hand alignment issue and after it came back everything was good enough. Now this happened all of a sudden and I am thinking about sending it back to Germany again for rapair.
Can you please enlighten me on this subject?
Thank you in advance...
