The ergonomics of the watch are enhanced by a push-in, push-out telescopic crown (you push the crown in and it pops out to the setting position, and push in again to put it back in place when you’re done) . In the images below, you can see it in either state. In addition to causing the watch to look more streamlined and symmetrical when the crown isn’t in use, it also prevents the crown from digging into the wearer’s wrist, an important consideration when the wrist is bent to wield a golf club or, maybe, a baseball bat or tennis racquet. Of course, having a crown that lies flush with the case is far from a major innovation, but in combination with the extremely lightweight construction of the watch, it’s just one more touch that adds to the experience of a timepiece that could really feel like it disappears on the wrist – in a good way.
