Yes, good eye. This was noted all up front from the seller and imo reflected in the pricing. 1 1/2 crown turns on the 7002 was not noted however. I read through the forum information, several times, regarding purchasing these two models ahead of time and know what is said about 1 1/2 turns being a minimum. But I'm wondering if there is an actual Seiko minimum and if 1 1/2 turns would be a deal breaker for other forum members or should I worry.
Quick fix suggestion to solve the lesser crown turns: buy a NOS crown. Around $ 35 from the known sellers around here. It's worth it, IMO.

That of course assumes that the threading problems are in the crown and not the crown tube (or both). Good suggestion, but to add to it, he should first check the watch and determine the cause before proceeding further.
An extra crown won't hurt to keep it as spares in the future, supposing the problem lies in the case tube, don't you agree?
