Haze under Crown?

Recently bought a PAM 321 GMT with power reserve. 5 hours after purchase, I got on a plane to go to Spain. Watch worked fine. Got to Madrid, went to hotel, took a short shower, and put watch on dresser, and went to bed. At 11:00 am next day, I noticed a haze under the crown that took up roughly 1/2+ the inside of the crown. The crown guard was in locked position during shower. And on the plane I adjusted GMT-nothing else. I took the watch back to the retailer (not an AD) and he tried to blame me, but I didn't do anything to the watch and he couldn't explain what was wrong. I gave him the watch/box/papers back and left the store. Can anyone e plain what happened?

I had a same experience and became a nightmare that in the turned into a full refund, after more than two years fighting with OP directly as the dealer wasn't bothered.

Go for nothing else than a refund or a new watch!

You can read my drama on my personal website, go to watch reviews, PAM00329. If you need the direct link, send me an email.

The haze (moisture) will drop onto the dial and the dial will be stuffed as well who knows if any would be round the movementJohny πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί !

The faster that moisture is out the better 🀞🀞🀞

I believe you of course πŸ‘πŸ» but there has been many a time when a bloke goes back to his POS or AD and says how did that happen ?

I want recourse now 🏁 They only have your word !

When in reality it entered because they left or have done something that caused it - like a crown down and lever over but not LOCKED in - that's why I think many AD's just flat refuse to believe you did nothing wrong - again an ATM dry test leak down will prove if there is any small leak in the case sealing - if there is that's your proof - but time is of the essence --- NOW ---once they open it you loose that avenue - fwiw I'd ask if been opened or not now ? If not ring around and find a watch maker who has the dry test machine with printed receipt of the outcome then take back to ad - always better to get that test done and won't cost much - then go to your AD with proof in hand the watch isn't sealing ! Most quality watch makers have this machine and there is one in Malmâ but jocke might be busy 🀀

LMK how u get on πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ίβ™ΏοΈπŸ€žπŸ˜„πŸ‘πŸ»
