    You are 100% right. Crown is NOT center. Also, bezel is NOT aligned. I'm pretty sure I'm "out" on Seiko. This is ridiculous.

    Also notice how high the date sits in the date window. Go couple of pages back and compare that with below. Neither are aligned correctly. Oh Seiko, why do you have to be so ....ing greedy? Or do you think we'll buy everything you throw at us just because you reissue designs loved by Seiko nuts?

    The watch in the post you're referring to with the high date shows about 11:30. The date is probably just starting to switch over around midnight which is why it looks to be sitting high.

    If this was the case it would be sitting low and uneven.

    I noticed the date alignment too, which sits very low. However this isn't new at all. I have three quartz tuna from two different generations, the date all sits low in the window. Also the day wheel is sitting at an angle. This along with chapter ring, bezel insert and second hand alignment are all persisting QC issues.

    I too was bother by these imperfections but there really isn't much you can do about it except learn to live with it.

    I must say, all my Seiko's were either 6R15 or BFK's. They were all as perfect as they could be. That said I had a SPORK and had to return it because it was minging quality wise (but also it was half price of Seiko's recent releases from this range, if I recall correctly). So maybe I'm expecting too much.

    Thanks for the pics...

    And...it looks like your date window is sitting lower compared to this Blue Lagoon Samurai. The date window is "centered" to the 3 o'clock hour marker.

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    Well,

    I was used to getting Seikos with misaligned dials and chapter rings but now we have to get used to misaligned crowns?

    What is the problem Seiko? Do you have a guy drilling crown holes in the cases by hand? Cannot afford CNC tooling?

    I had this one high on my wish list for 2017 but it just fell down a few places. I think I'll get a used one instead and ask for side crown pics before pulling the trigger.


    Cheers,

    Seb

    I'm glad I saw this thread. Been staring at the blue lagoon for a while now but was looking into the newer versions. I could only hope these are isolated incidents.
