“What?! Your screw down crown isn’t tight enough! I’m surprised that you haven’t gotten any water in that thing yet!” - Anyone who doesn’t know much about watches.  Yes, that is true when it comes to crown gaskets that require pressure in order to seal, however that design has already been mostly unused in modern screw down crowns. Even with that design, overpressuring the gasket will compromise water resistance as the gasket is pinched.  However these days, the gasket is put far down the crown tube, and isn’t a compressible one (see second photo). It is a design that allows for the watch to be water tight even if the crown became unscrewed and pulled out underwater. That is given the crown isn’t manipulated. The gasket, in a simple sense is always sealing the watch. Then what is the screw down crown for? It is to simply protect against inadvertent manipulation of the crown underwater. Therefore, the crown just needs to be finger tight, or tight enough so it doesn’t become unscrewed in the water. I screw in the crown by threading it as usual and then screwing it in until I feel resistance, and then advancing it just a little bit for “finger tightness.” Before going into water, just ensure it wouldn’t come unscrewed under slight finger pressure.  So now you know, don’t worry about giving the crown a torque value that can only be achieved with a torque wrench! And you surely don’t need to be digging your nails into the grooves to unscrew it. #watchgeek #watches #watchesofinstagram #seikoskx #skx #seikowatches #screwdowncrown #watchmyths #horology #horologist
