    Default Moisture residue under crystal

    Hi Everyone... new to the forums.

    I just bought my first brand new Invicta Watch and was dissapointed to see this under the glass.
    Is this a common issue with Invicta watches ? It looks like left over residue from moisture

    I own quite a few Invicta watches. I have actually opened quite a few myself to wipe the fog from the crystals.

    It happens all the time on my Pro Diver Reserve. Mister I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING (me) removed the back cover to adjust the balance wheel. While replacing the cover, I didn't re-seat the rubber O-ring moisture seal . Now, until I can get the o-ring professionally re-seated and pressure tested, it foggs up everytime it experiences ''environment changes''.

    Welll, I could have said temperature changes, but if the air's too dry, the crystal doesn't fog up.
