    Question Bigger crown question

    I wish to replace the tiny crown on my cream watch with a lager one preferable an onion style so its easier to use. Is this as straight forward as taking the watch to a watch repair shop and ask them to fit a bigger crown?.

    I've asked Thomas for a few onion crowns and stems which will fit our GMT watch. Please email me if you want one [email protected].

    Please make sure you have the necessary skills if you are planning to make the change yourself. Or find a competent watchmaker to do it for you. We don't a multitude of watches returned under warranty due to any 'crown issues' :)

    Finally swapped out the crown on one of my project watches. Here is how it looks for those considering it.
