While thinking about repurchasing a seiko skx007 (a good watch I regret selling), I started wondering what other watches are out there with the crown at 4? Obviously seiko makes plenty, but who else?

Thanks guys! Have to wonder why more brands don't make them; comfortable and can make a watch look like a proper tool.

With their waaay oversized crowns, the SARs really could have used this design feature!

I wear watches behind the bone so no crowns ever bother me but the 4 o'clockers look the best.

MG Rasmus and Sinn U1 are the best two I have seen so far with this configuration. I'm really looking forward to the upcoming Ocean7 LM-1 reissue also.

Some vintage Doxa's had them, too, but I can't remember which ones - not the SUB 300's, but some other -

I also think these should be standard on all watches with large crowns - I guess they could be harder to manipulate while on the wrist, but certainly get the crown out of the way -
