Gen Crown in rep tube

Hey there folks, how we all doing?

I've just landed a gen Crown.
Will it work just as well on a decent rep tube or am I better off getting a gen tube and re-tapping the case? I'm not bothered about getting as many gen parts as possible on this watch so I'm happy to just use the crown if it'll work just as well.

The tube it's going on is perfect, lovely full length thread with no issues at all. It feels nice and smooth.

Yes, two of my builds have this setup and both are waterproof and work fine.
