1. Watch crown, definition

The dial on the watch, which is most often located at 3 a.m. The crown is one of the key elements of watch construction: if it serves most of the time to change the hour and minute hands, it can also be used to change other parameters of the watch, such as the date.

 

2. Automatic watch crown

On the automatic watches, turning the watch crown when pushed is used to manually reassemble the movement of the watch. So on our Women's auto watch Initial 36 or on all of our men's automatic watches that have 40 hours of power reserve, you can reassemble the mechanism manually using the crown.

 

3. Different types of watch crown

There are several types of watch crown, such as the push crown, which is used, for example, to operate a chronograph, as on our Horizon watch, or the screwed watch crown, which ensures maximum waterproofing. It is therefore used in particular on diving watchesand you can find this type of crown on our Concordia watch.

 

4. Use of the watch crown


The watch crown is an entry point into the mechanism and water can easily seep into it. It is therefore important to be especially careful that the crown is well pushed or screwed when your waterproof watch or diving is in contact with water.
