I just received my Marine Automatic with TOP movement from Stowa. It is a beautiful watch and I am absolutely grateful to posses one. Stowa's customer service has also been OUTSTANDING!
Today, (2 days after receiving the watch) I noticed there was a thin opening under the crown and lug. I wanted to see if this opening is intentional or if this is a manufacturing error. I have attached two photos to this post (one with an arrow pointing to the perceived problem). I worry that liquids could seep in the opening and damage the internal parts of the watch.
I am looking to see if anyone else has this opening on their Stowa watches and whether I should send the watch back to Stowa for repair.
Thank you for any insight you can provide.
