    Do all Risemen look slightly crooked or is it an optical illusion?

    I got a new riseman but the module looks crooked but at a glance but when looking closer it seem to not to be. Would this be an optical illusion because of the design of the plastic divider in the middle?

    I think I think it is because only one side of the bar gets fatter at one end. Maybe Im dreaming but every picture Ive seen looks like it to me.

    Actually, I kind of see it now.

    The bar that says "receiving indicator" seems to angle up to the right?

    I can't see it in all honesty. But it's a tough call, often once you spot something it's all you will ever see no matter how hard you try not to!

    Good to see you back posting Brandon Hope all your Citizens and Seikos are still in good hands

    Definitely an optical illusion, the 'crookedness' is more pronounced on the Atomic model with Receiving Indicator txt on the divider bar, although just visual. On the non-atomic one without the bar txt, it appears perfect, both physically and visually.

    cheers!

    Yep, I've come to the conclusion myself. With other models as well. There are not all lines absolutely straight and those asymmetric designs often tend to fool the eye.
