Alignment, keep or return

Post by Robti on Tue Feb 20 2018, 19:28

Hi all I picked this up in the recent Jura sale, now does it pass or fail the alignment and do I keep or return and hope the replacement is better, you see I think I can see it being out a bit but then I don’t know, so here goes



Thanks

I think the problem is the angle you look at it . the 5 minute and 15 minute markers look as though they are slightly out and I mean slightly but the rest line up .

Can I ask is it a new watch or pre owned ? I only ask as the photo looks as though the case has some scratches .. I am looking at the case top right of the photo



Or is it just the photo ??

Very nice looking watch though I am liking the red / blue combination

Only bought it as for the last year I said I really didn’t like the Pepsi bezels and after posting some comments online I thought I would have to see one in the flesh so bought this

i dont think its out, but if it is it cant be by much, trouble is you are lining up the dial, chapter ring and bezel so if one is out by one thou it will exaggerate through the others, i think its as best as you can expect from any watch, the only thing i would add though is : if you buy Japanese Seiko as opposed to Chinese or Malaysian the Japanese will always be spot on without exception Japanese QC and pride wouldn't allow anything less....smart watch Robert........you have well and truly caught the bug Very Happy

there is not a massive difference between J&K.........tiny in fact, but they are there plus the J versions are assembled by naked Ladies and the cases burnished on their thighs Shocked
