All good still,yes! I’ve heard that it can take some time for moisture to show up if intrusion did occur, so I’ve been keeping a close eye on it. I’ve worn it a couple days and put it down for the last 3 or so, and it still looks good! It does look like I’ve escaped, but I wonder how long I’ll be glancing at the crystal looking for moisture?
Go hang out in the cool weather for a half our or so then walk into the toasty house. That should get it fogged up if there is any moisture in there.

Nice long dog walk this morning in 27 degree frostiness, been inside the 70 degree house for a while and it’s all clear 8)

(Edit: that's -3 and 21 degrees for my non-American friends who don't have the conversion tables in their heads :lol: )

Glad you’ve escaped unscathed! I was not so lucky with my C65 vintage mk2 with the push pull crown (a backward step from the screwed in crown of the mk1), i fastidiously used to check the crown position but alas, after swimming and a cold morning walk the day after, there was fogging in the glass. It went back to CW towers who said the seal was good so blamed the crown position, but it was serviced and fixed. I lost confidence in the push pull design and now opted for a C63 automatic with the screw crown for that extra protection.
