Checked with a loupe. Definitely not dust on mine. Looks like tool marks. There two pairs of marks, about the same distance from either lug on the non-crown side.As for the roughness under the bezel ...thought I had an issue there too ...turned out to be dust from the inside of the box. The velvety stuff inside the box gets chafed during transport and the tiny particles sneak in under the bezel. Slide a bit of paper round under the bezel and you might find your finish improved
Also, there's some small scratches on the polished crown.
Correct ...but previously it never aligned correctly ...so that is an improvement.More play will mean it's less precise so it may or may not happen to align, depending.
No seriously, with less push from the spring the aligment does actually improve
Yeah, I had the same dust all over mine from the velvety interior of the box braking up during shipment. Hope they change that for future projects.
IIRC, someone had already posted a couple pages back that these models have a 60 click bezel that will have a bit more play in them and may not align exactly perfectly. They plan to only use a 120 click bezel on future diver watch projects.

Here's a Q&D shot of mine, on a brushed 22mm Watchadoo, if anyone was interested.
Also, mine is running +1s/day, fully wound. Not sure if that's a factory (G.Gerlach) adjustment, or I got lucky but it's damn good. Hope they all run like this.
Dzik and Sokol watches keep time very well! so it isn't luck
but +1 sec/day is astonish. Of course it's up to the way of using thr watch but still impressive
Sokol 008/300 is here in Canada. Well, just one problem, Canadian customs hit me with a $75 fee... oh well, not anyone's fault
Very nice finish and I went to a local watch store an put a nice brushed stainless steel strap, love it. If you do another project open to public purchases, I would love to see a Swiss or a local eastern European movement.
