Screw Down Crown VS Push In Crown

January 1, 2018

We have seen lot of dive watch with foggy circle in the middle of your dive watch face. This is generally due to a faulty crown, Today, we are going to talk about the facts of a screw down crown VS 'push-in crown'. Generally, the push-in crown may leave gaps where water can get in when you're out on adventures. 

 

 

 

With Pantor that simply won't do. We use high-quality screw down crowns that thread into the case. By this way, you won't have to do the inevitable 'sigh' that comes with the dreaded ring of fog. 


A screw down crown can create a safer water-resistant environment by threading into place. Adjusting the date and/or time on a watch with a screw-down crown is simple, you just simply unscrew the crown counter clockwise until it springs open then gently pull it out to the right position. When you have finished setting the watch, the crown must then be pushed and screwed back in tightly. This step is very important as it ensures the water-resistance of the dive watch, not doing so may result in flooding. Overall, this process should not require a lot of effort or force.

If you've ever felt your stomach drop when you realized your watch has flooded, it might just be time to treat yourself to a timepiece that can take a hit and survive the "oops" situations. Pantor watches are equipped with screw-down crown systems to back you up.

 

Pantor Seahorse

 

 

 

Rated to 1000M/3300FT | Size: 45mm Case Diameter | Sapphire Glass| Brushed Steel Finish

 

 

 

We've found there is a big demand for real dive watches, and the Pantor Seahorse model says it all with a discrete 'diver down' flag, a solid steel case with unidirectional bezel, Helium release valve and a screw-down crown for water protection and comfort. Available in a large 45mm size.

 

The Screw Down Crown’s Advantage:
 
When properly used, the screw-down crown provides a water-tight seal allowing you to splash around all day long


Also, it can prevent dust or dirt from entering the watch. Dust/dirt may dry up the lubricants, and slowing down the movement


Provides even pressure on the gaskets to maintain a flawless seal.


More protection from accidental opening versus a push-crown system.
