For my 1000th post, I'm going to vent.
I've had this SRP777 for a few years now but only made it a regular wearer about a month ago. Took it in the pool for the first time yesterday, and look at this crap. Pretty disappointed, to say the least.
sorry, man. on a brighter note, i/ we all hear you and feel your pain (i think, never can be too sure on this internet thing), and ii/ your timing/justification/platform for venting are each impeccable.
Hate it when that happens..i would take your caseback off and leave it under a moderate wattage lamp mate if the rice draws not full success...may be lubed enough still to not put it in for a overhaul...
Grrr is a good way to put it when this shows up...
I suspect bad gaskets. Either case or crystal. The gaskets in the crown should be water tight regardless of screwed down or not. If you ever read the cosc on divers that all functions of a Diver should work at rated depth plus 20%.
If it's any solace I got water [literally droplets on the dial] in my Vostok Amphibia last year after the crown unscrewed accidentally.
I'd been mountain biking & the vibration must have loosened the crown.Anyhow I jumped in the pool [I was holidaying in France] & after about a minute noticed the crown was loose.
Long story short I had no tools to take the caseback off so had to wait til I got home,approx a week with water sealed inside the watch.Opened it up when I got back & left if a few days with the back off in the loft with some kitchen roll over the movement to keep dust out.
Sealed it back up & it's still running as well as ever today.
