    I count it as a good day when my Speedy Crown almost has the right orientation after a full wind.....I find it best not to set myself high expectations for reasons to celebrate these days / nice to have a crowning glory once in a while :0)

    This is something that only a watch nerd would notice. And that's a good thing. I salute you, sir.

    Jesus wept, as if my OCD wasn't bad enough already :) My watch repair buddy thanks you in advance for the pain in the ass I am about to give him.

    Damn... I'm going to look at every crown after a full wind now, or maybe leave it at 1,1573% off full wind?? :thumbsdown:

    My crown doesn’t line up at full wind. Will Omega fix it under warranty?

    I would return the watch and demand a new one. It's obviously defective. :D

    I spin mine backwards to orient it properly after winding. :) Once in awhile the crowns align.

    My 2 rolexes are the only 2 watches I own that do this every single time. Everything else has to be fought with. Interesting.

    Pity the poor bastard who has a screwdown crown and the logo is permanently 180 degrees off.
