Luminor crown operation

Post by Dohron » Mon Apr 04, 2022 8:08 pm

Just picked my first Panerai …. An 8 day base … love the brown face!
Am I supposed to be able to turn the crown (like winding) with the crown guard locked down?
Seems it would be not be water tight ?

Anyone know where to get an original brown rubber strap?

Thanks!!

Short answer: no. The crown guard is a lock. Open to wind.
