My Rolex watches screw in and lock precisely every time. Not so with my 3 Omega watches.

On all of my screw down crown watches I always push the crown in while applying continual pressure and rotate it counterclockwise until it I feel and hear a click. I then continue to apply pressure and rotate it clockwise and the crowns screw down smoothly. I do this for all all 18 of my watches that have screw down crowns with the exception of my Rolex watches.

If I don't do the above procedure I can sometimes feel the crown starting to cross thread so I resorted to the above method to eliminate or reduce the chance of cross threading. The above method seems to prevent this from happening.

I'm sure Archer will chime in and let us know if my method is flawed or not. He definitely knows more about this than I do. I just heard that this was one way to help eliminate cross threading the stem.
