Hello,
I've this Oris Diver Regulator (see picture below) which I like alot, but the crown doesn't screw down anymore. I've read awhile back here that these regulators have problem with the screwdown crown from the factory, if my memory is correct. Please advise as what I need to do, or where I can go and get a new crown. Thanks in advance.

I have the same watch and the crown on mine is getting very picky about what position it will screw down in. I believe it is the stem tube at fault rather than the crown as the threads strip very easily if the crown is tightened 'enthusiastically', it was a reasonably common problem on these. Oris still had the parts last year as this was discussed on another board, any competent watch repairer should be able to obtain and fit it for you. As said, get it done quickly before you get any moisture in there.
