Hey all,
I just got a Seiko SRP 587 (Mohawk) and have a question- is it normal for the crown to be a bit wiggly when unscrewed? Thanks in advance :)

Yes

All my Seiko SKX divers have a wiggly crown(back in 2002 when I got my first Seiko diver, it scared the crap out of me and I thought it was broken. It is normal on most seiko divers

Can't say if it's normal for your specific model, but many watches with screw down crowns have a slight wiggle when it is unscrewed and fully extended. I wouldn't worry about it

Wiggle in Seiko screw down crowns is part of the deal. I would guess it has something to do with the seals used to keep water out and their tolerances to a good fit within the case. Jmho.

Thanks, everyone! Y'all put my mind at ease :) I really really like the watch, and was loathe to part with it to have it checked out.

Crown on the 1000m Tunas is rock solid, if that's what you're looking for.

I posted a references for those in the future who were in the same position as me going from solid swiss crown to more wiggly Japanese crowns...it's just a differences in the design. My sbgv245 scared me until I saw the Seiko crown and stem assembly. Perfectly normal.
