    Waffle dial + uneven crown, a big NO to me,
    Do you like having a good time? Then you need a good watch!

    This is definitely one to look and try on in person before pulling the trigger.

    I very rarely have any QC issues with my seikos but this crown guard situation is very poor.
    hey should have designed it to hug the crown more, its too wide with too much gap between each side.
    And the centring of the crown here is terrible, poor form from seiko.
    None of this effects my love for seiko at all but its poor form from their design team and factory none the less.

    What I don't get is how can they mess it up so badly. Unless they make these watches using cheapest labour who drill holes in cases using hand-eye method. Then again this still wouldn't explain the chapter ring and date window (and who knows what else) alignments.

    All machinery goes out of calibration when you are doing long runs, what we are seeing here is machinery thats gone out of calibration, the drill has drifted on the machine at the end of a long run and it hasnt been picked up.

    Sounds legit, but this would be unacceptable in a small local machine shop in my hometown managed by 2-3 guys.

    I cannot believe that a huge corporation like Seiko release stuff like this in 2017 with all the tools, staff and $$ at their disposition.

    They should have alarms when things drift out of calibration, its very poor form.

    Long run... they only started coming to market and I've not seen one (bar the LE Blue Lagoons) that has correctly aligned crown. You'd have thought that they would aim to have the first batch of an eagerly anticipated rerelease sorted out so that they are as close to perfect as possible.
