I have had a CR1 for quite a few years now, and it runs like a champ. I had it in to my local watchmaker for a pressure test, and he says it is showing some bubbles around the crown and pushers, and recommended it be re-sealed. Any thoughts on that advice? Assuming it is a good idea, where should I send it, and what is a likely cost?

Thanks,
--Kevin

Just wanted to bump and try asking this one more time. Thanks for any help anyone can offer!

I know nothing about Prometheus, but if they are still around I'd contact them and see if you can send it in and have the gaskets replaced. If they are no more, then try one of the watchmakers that the forum guys use, like Jack (IWW) or Jay (MCWW) and they may be able to source correct gaskets. Replace them, re-test for water resistance, and you're good to go.
