Default Turtle mystry

hi guys, have a turtle 6309-7049
when wear always misted up inside the crystal
took it to service the guy said the stem or crown need to change, he said its not the right one. but i had bought this on ebay specifically for 6309-7049
but is that the problem or is it the stem gasket?
can anyone who had the same problem shed some light?
much appreciated...

There's a pic of the watch on facebook but not of the crown/stem and it's the crown/stem we would need good hi res pics of to try and help you.

It can be one of 3 seals, crystal, case back or crown. All can be replaced without issues.

My money is on caseback or crown gasket. Happens to one of my watches from time to time. I just move the crown to second position and it dissapates in seconds.

I'd start with a new case back gasket before getting too crazy with repairs. Many times that will solve the problem.

I think the seals are easy enough to get hold of and of course the case back one is the simplest to change.
