Alignment obsession!?

Is it only us watch nerds that check out how the crown aligns when it's fully screwed in?

My work colleagues and non watch loving friends think I'm nuts!! 馃ぃ

It is mate. The unnecessary, necessities! 馃槈

I like it when it lines up but I think only one of my watches does.

TOP TIP: Make your life easier and strive for excellence rather than perfection. No one can argue with excellence. 馃槈

Never understood why YouTube reviewers go nuts when a pricey piece has an unsigned crown, it's not a feature I cherish. Along with date complications my old eyes struggle to make 'em out. 馃ぃ馃懘馃徏

I can't say I worry about this any more than I worry if my center caps are all lined up every time I park. I just checked my watch and it's not lined up, but it's pretty close!

My Breitling SuperOcean that I鈥檓 wearing today passed.

Honestly, given how much some of these cost, I don鈥檛 think it鈥檚 too much to ask to get the little details like this correct.

Yeah, I've seen those. Watch companies could do that with crowns too.

I never even looked.

Great! Now I got that to worry about! :)

Yeah, it's pretty common. I was talking to my watchmaker one day about how anal people get about it when he's servicing their watches. He thinks it's utterly bizarre. I have to agree with him.

I can't even recall the last time I even looked at the crown of any of my watches, side-on, let alone pondered if I liked which way the logo pointed. But horses for courses, I guess, in watchland.

Maybe your friends are right ...馃槀

Sorry mate

My Oris also fails 馃槬

This was the piece I brought to remember my dad when he passed, so it's special!

My dad wasn't perfect (like me 馃ぃ), so it kind of fits.

It鈥檚 4:20 so that鈥檚 a check. 鉁

I guess hublot will not be in your future...
