The watch crown: what is the purpose of this watch component?
- On automatic watches, turning the crown when pushed in is used to manually wind the movement of the watch. So on our women's automatic watches or on all of our men's automatic watches that have 40 hours of power reserve, you can manually wind the mechanism using the crown.
- The crown of the watch is a point of entry into the mechanism and water can easily seep in. Therefore, it is especially important to make sure that the crown is pushed in or screwed down when your waterproof watch or diver's watch is in contact with water.
