^^^^^ Ah. That, (or the auto), was going to be my next purchase. How can “divers” leak?
Are there any other push in crown diver watches out there other than CW?
I have a screw in crown diver which is fine.

That’s not what I wanted to hear. :(

Mine is coming in early July. I am hesitant on submerging in a pool or lake because of the push in crown. Has anyone else have the same problem? I also wear my every day watches 24/7. This might be a problem for me.

I have always worn my watch's 24/7 and never take them off to swim (all are waterproof of course) I bought a C65 Feb 2019, wore it in the pool once (only 0.9m as with my granddaughter) it leaked. Returned the watch to CW in April, no one contact me to update on progress I had to call several times to eventually be told they had pressure tested the watch and could not find a problem. Got the watch back around the beginning of May, its leaking again and I've not even been in a pool. It will be going back to CW, I am unlikely to accept either a repair or replacement which is a shame as it’s a good looking watch. Not impressed at all.
Something very wrong, no way it should leak so a seal must be defective. Have you had a pressure test done by a local watchmaker? I am sure many would be interested to hear.

Whether a push in crown or screw down should make no difference to a given pressure rating given correct design and testing.

I will admit to a slight preference for push in for every day wear, less fiddly for adjustment/risk of damage to the tube. But there is the satisfaction of screw down for security under serious abuse.
