Question please help me with this 6105 crown

I bought this crown which was offered as "original Seiko 6105 crown" with quite blurry pics.
Now I'm not sure what to think of it. It's not as sharp as the NOS crown I own, but it looks better than most of the aftermarket crowns I've seen. For me it looks like something in between.
I know here are some true 6105 experts, what do you think? Is this a geniune Seiko crown?
Thanks for your opinion.

I don't know about this one but there are 2 different crowns found on this watch. The difference is the number of small ridges between the larger valleys. One may have been a service replacement. As with most things Seiko, we will never know for sure 100%

As you say with Seiko ya never Know 100%
I was under the impression there were Three Crowns for the 6105-811X Five ,Eight and? Ridges on the crown.
all were OEM
I would not Bet on my impression.
How many other Brands can offer such Challenging Facts?
other than Beloved Seiko's ?

^^ agree there.. there is the one with just the 3 flutes aswell.

When I look at it I just go by the initial impression of quality. Too rounded. Lacking definition, that sort of thing...but I may be wrong.

Here is one on a 1974 one I have sitting here. Crap pic....but it just looks better machined.

[IMG][/IMG]

Essentially this has 8 ridges, or 7 grooves if I'm counting correctly... but as has been said...few different variations and I also imagine that countless 6105s out there have fake crowns that we can't tell...so....blah...

IMHO the AM crowns are so easy to see and its as Guy just mentioned The Feel and Quality is so Off and I have had nothing but issues with A M crowns that I would rather Waite as I have for 6105-811x OEM crowns. Not so easy If there is only one watch
and I don't ever want to forget that.
My first 6105 8110 was with AM Dial, Hands,Crown a Red sec hand unable to lock and did not hack But I loved her.
