My new Tagheuer aquaracer 500m screw down crown is very stiff

The crown is very stiff to screw down, so much so that the crown has broken twice. Each time tag just replaces the crown and its screw mechanism, but cant explain why it is so stiff. This is not normal, as all identical watches I have checked are smooth and easy to screw down. could it be the thread in the case tube that is damaged? I wish someone could explain the working of this mechanism.

If the stem does not lock in, will it still be waterproof?


You need to get out your jeweler's loupe (best at 5x & 10x)... and look for the threads to "*****" (ski-rue) down your winder-stem (not a lock).

(Features a Ski-rue down crown & back case)

YOU can pretty much be assured that if the "stem" collar is malfunctioning (broken) the "water-proof" element is compromised (that's most likely the least of your troubles).

More importantly... if the STEM does not properly "tighten" it can
cause further damage against gears which MUST align with it... further it can come all the way out and be lost... Not an inexpensive part.

Best direction would be to get it serviced by an authorized agent.

Im trying to adjust the time because it stopped when i took it off for a day. Im not sure how i can change it because the adjusting knob is not popping out.


mcdevito75 here, Tissot a very, very great name and watch, a you know most stems pull out to set the time, some watches have a screw down crown this adds to it"s waterproofing as there is a gasket under the crown. Maybe your Tissot has this screw down crown, simply un screw the crown then gently pull up on the crown to set the time. If this fails, see any Jewler for help, doN't mess with the watch to much a syou or anyone could wreck it, and Tissot is very expensive.

I am unable to return to the 0 crown Position - TAG-CAF2112


The aquaracer has a 'screw-down' crown.  This means that the crown needs to be screwed in the reset it back to the 0 position.

How to adjust the date in tagheuer watch


Some TAG models have a date "quick set". Pull crown out just a wee bit to position #1. Turn counter clockwise to advance date. Pulling out the crown to position #2 stops the watch and sets the time.
