It is possible a tiny gasket is inside the tread... needing to be REPLACED before proceeding.

First check to see if it is a "left-hand" or "right-hand"
threaded CROWN... Then check that there is no damage to the STEM or the CROWN... You will need at least a 10x (power) jeweler's loupe to see that.

If you have any damage... A watchmaker might be able to dress the treads and save the ORIGINAL PARTS...

Else you are probably looking at replacing both the stem & crown...

best to go to a bulova dealer to get the original fitted as its most likely the stem is sheered of inside the old crown if however it has just unscrewed from the stem any good watchmaker should be able to refit it and reseal it

I have a Bulova Precisionist champlain Ion Black, I have had it sent away once because the crown fell off, I got the watch back and a week later it fell off again, the watch is under a year old, has anyone...

Bulova will repair it under their warranty or at least fit a new crown, properly.
I presume you sent it to the supplier for repair and not the manufacturer.

i cant get a manual for this but watches have standard mechanical function so maybe this will do.
the center crown of the watch right side of the picture, loosen the crown. Be careful, some crown have a screw function so if your bulova has this don't force to pull it to prevent damage. if you have loosen the crown, check if can be turn it, if yes pull gently the crown, first pull date adjust,second pull time adjust.
This is the proper way to adjust you day and time.
say you want to adjust your watch to (date)10th (time)10:15am
adjust your date to 9th, then move your watch hands clockwise until the date change at 12oclock this is the evening time (PM) continue moving your watch hands until you reach 10:15am.
if your crown is a screw time remember to turn it close tightly for waterproofing.
