Just got my new crown in and it appears the inner post is not entirely strait. The crown can not be flush with the watch when the stem is inserted and you can definitely see the unbalance when winding. Is it possible to slightly bend this post or do I have to order a new crown?

matt1415...if you're able to: remove the stem, remove the crown, & re-install the crown, being attentive to winding it on so it's straight...I've encountered many crowns that will go on crooked, but can be re-done so as to be straight! Additionally, it sometimes is possible to bend a stem back into shape...but, do be very careful: they usually will not bend much...! Michael.
