    i can swear I seen something sticking out from the Digital Crown area but I don't see anything anymore. If by some chance the gasket did fall out how would I know ? Also since I don't swim with the watch is it adage to still use it ?

    Updated the title to make it more meaningful In the future place avoid generic titles as that will limit the people from actually seeing and responding.

    1. disassemble the apple watch. If you can't see the gasket. Its missing

    or

    2. Submerge the watch in water. If the watch dies and water gets inside, we can assume the gasket is not there.

    I would take it to Apple and have them inspect it before you subject the Watch to any water. If it was an issue, you could prevent further issues down the road.

    I definitely wouldn't disassemble the Apple Watch unless you have complete confidence it would not corrupt or ruin it. Otherwise it would likely void the warranty or worse, it wouldn't function normal if you couldn't repair it properly.

    Also, I wouldn't subject the Watch to water or test to see if it is a gasket, I would rather have Apple inspect it and allow them to address the issue, if there is one. If there was an issue with the seal, then it would be a warranty concern.

    Believe it or not my repair was "denied" with the seal coming out of my crown. Have you noticed a number of people with this issue NOT having resolution?
