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.Just not that picky at this price point. And at my age lol
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.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.
Very interesting dial, markers, and handset. The case finishing looks all original to me. Very nice.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.
