    Strange issue with Seatime

    I just got my Seatime back from service in the Fatherland and noticed something strange. There seems to be a piece of gasket or o-ring caught between the crown tube and the case. At first I thought that it was a piece of rubber or debris but it won't come out. I looked up pics of how a crown tube attaches to cases and I can't get any insight on where this piece of rubber is. I am talking about between the tube that the crown screws down on and the case of the watch. I'm wondering if there is a o-ring between the crown tube when it is installed in the case and a piece of it got caught during the installation of the crown tube? Very confused and don't really want to send this watch back because of the cost involved. Any help would be great.

    The rubber material is where I circled in red.

    wow, your seatime got back with a Rolex crown. Fantastic!

    BTW: I would assume that rubber thing (like you showed on the above pic)squeezed between the case and screw mount stem could be there for the purpose of water resistance. If it is evenly distributed around the stem then I would live with it. Otherwise if you only see it sticks out a tiny bit somewhere, I suggest Stowa take a look at it.

    Hahahah Yea, it is not evenly distributed. It is just 1 little piece. I can push it around but it won't come out or go back in. Uggg...another trip to germany?? And for some reason, Stowa repair department has stopped answering my emails...

    Re: Strange issue with Seatime

    Hahahahah. I love this watch and have loved wearing it and would hate to have to send it back again. The reason i didn't post pics of my watch is that I don't know that I have a camera that can pick up the detail since you would need pretty good lighting and good macro setting. The rolex is only for demonstration purposes!! And Fanny did get back with me today, I apologize for being impatient. She said she would consult with you and get back to me ASAP. Thanks Jorg!

    Yet another example of why I will continue to buy watches from Stowa. An issue posted to the message board (with a picture of the wrong watch, no less) gets a personal reply directly from the owner himself.

    Honestly, Stowa watches are some of the best deals out there when it comes to build quality and craftsmanship. I've never had such a well regulated watched, mine's running about +1 at the moment.

    Re: Strange issue with Seatime

    Once again I am reminded why I love the Stowa brand so much. Onc need only browse the other vasious sub-fora of this site or other watch sites to see why. I work in the service industy and truly appreciate the speed and intensity that Jorg and Stowa attack and solve problems. I have owned many watches through the years, some of these were quickly sold due to problems or issues with the company. I like to give credit where credit is due and when I see the Stowa logo on my watch....well, bad example since I have a no logo Flieger . I feel warm and Fuzzy. Many watch companies have given me a "Go 'F yourself" feeling. Jorg will make it right.
