Question: Threading Crown on Stem

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I have a vintage 67' sub that I am in the process of restoring. When I got the piece it was missing the crown and I found a no line/ no dot era correct twin lock crown to add...

Question is: how do I thread the crown onto the stem while it's in the case and can this be done?!

I'm getting the piece fully over hailed but want to make sure the new twin lock

I can't tell from the photos if there even is a stem in there; is there?

If not, the whole crown/stem assembly just plugs into the movement.

If there is a stem in there yes, you will have to remove it to attach the crown.

But if you are having the movement overhauled that will be done as part of the service...

You need to remove it as you need to screw it on with a little loctite. Unscrew the set lever screw, only a tiny bit and pull the stem, if it doesn't come then unscrew a little more and pull the stem, if you unscrew set lever screw too much you can dislodge other parts be careful..

In my experience, better to have a pro do it rather than making it worse myself.

Tried my hand at an Omega decades ago and the cost to repair my "handiwork" was more that I would have saved...but I learned valuable lesson to let pro's handle the tricky stuff.
