I took it off and looked at it at different angles and all the dots line up perfectly. The twelve is the thinest hair off you really have to squint to see it and the 6 is a thin hair and a half off. I think in the picture its the camera angle that is distorting it.

Just not that picky at this price point. And at my age lol
Me neither, but if I'm paying money for a modern watch, I expect it to be perfect. Pre-owned is a different story. I'm also an amateur watchmaker and have the tools to open the case back and make the adjustment myself. This is something you could look into, as well.

I am always willing to learn. Odd thought that the 12 and 6 are slightly askew yet all the others are aligned perfectly? If you were to align the top and bottom the others would be off.

None of the chapter ring markers are perfectly aligned. I'm seeing the skew on all 4: 3, 6, 9, 12 based on your photos.

My first Seiko watch that started my collection and the one got me through my senior years of high school (alongside my 5H26-7A10 which I wore on sports days). Seiko 5 6119-5460 with a blue two-tone dial. Based on the serial number, this watch was manufactured in 1975.

Very interesting dial, markers, and handset. The case finishing looks all original to me. Very nice.

I love it and the bracelet is so comfortable. I really thought the rubber would have the market on comfort?

Also i have had it for a few weeks now and it’s 20 seconds slow. It has been on the winder for 4-5 days. My turtle lost 2 seconds a day and was 8 sec down but started wearing it while sleeping and at present is up to only 3 seconds slow.
It’s on the winder now will see if it stops gaining and goes the other way. Just having fun
