    Hello all.
    I wish to know if anyone is having issues when unscrewing the crown and having it not pop, engage, out to the first wind position.
    Mine more often than not needs half a clockwise turn to engage it.
    Mine sometimes just spins freely and I have to re-screw it in.
    Mine sometimes, yet not often, engages fully in the first position, with a full pop.

    It is completely random and frustrating :(

    I don’t have the GMT but my Orange 300 rarely pops out into the winding position. Minor turn moves it out, but I don’t have the spinning freely problem.

    Mine had the broken teeth on the winding wheel issue and has since been repaired under warranty.

    Thecabove issue was in existence before and after repair, so clearly a design issue somewhere.

    Indeed I also beleive it is a design issue., as I have now had it in for repair 2 times and now in for a third time. The watch is brand new a few months old.
