Hey all,

Anyone else find the crown on their watch a bit difficult to screw down? I’m not cross-threading, but find I have to push slightly as I screw in, is this normal? Watch is new, so perhaps will loosen up over time. Perhaps since it’s also trying to wind the watch while screwing in?

Manual says don’t force it, so makes me a little nervous.

Thanks,

Ty

You do have to push the crown in to re-tighten, quite normal. Just don't over tighten.

Yes, perhaps I should be more clear - I have to continue applying inward pressure as I tighten or it’s far too difficult to sinch it up. Even after initially pressing crown into catch the threads, requires constant pressure while tightening the rest of the way. Hoping it breaks in a bit.
