Agreed. Feel the crown being a bit out is fine where she is right now after service and here's why.... The new seals are probably why it sticks out a bit for now. Give it a year or five and bet it'll be a bit more flush.

If the crown is fully flush against the case, that might mean your seals are near/at their end-life. JMHO.
Enjoy Your Time,
