oh yes.. now you’ve pointed it out I can’t un-see it. I wouldn’t be happy with that really Daven. i just checked my Turtles, which are fine in that respect… but they are going to Seiko UK for their bezels to be realigned. these aren’t ‘expensive’ watches, but we want them to be right.Looks great! The chapter ring isn’t perfectly aligned at 12 o’clock, though. These are known issues with Seiko QC.
Correct -- the chapter ring is slightly offset clockwise. Always request to see photos of the actual watch prior to purchasing it. This is a common and known Seiko QC issue with its modern watches.it’s the way that the tip of the ‘sword’ 12 hour marker doesn’t match up with the hour marker on the chapter ring that makes it clear to me.
