    Lack of spacing symmetry between minute markers and second markers on reissue of Omega Seamaster 300

    I’ve annotated this photo to show the lack of spacing symmetry between minute markers and second markers on the reissue of the Omega Seamaster 300. You may have to zoom into the photo for more detail.

    I'm rather surprised that such an expensive watch would have such flaws. Are these flaws built into the printing design of the dials, or is this example a one-off? I hope it is the latter.

    If this were my watch I would send it back.

    Have you considered a Movado museum??
    What in the world even caused you to scutinize that picture to the extent that you did? I wouldn't have seen whatever you are seeing in a million years.

    Nothing to see here: "affordable" buyer justifying his budget.

    I suspect those markers are being shifted about by viewing them through the crystal. Fairly common viewing error.

    Ummm... You do know the hour marker at 3 o’clock is a different shape to the others you marked up, and therefore should be different? The others look pretty much spot on and are probably due to the angle and lighting. Given your lack of attention to detail from my first point I’ll move on assume there is nothing to see here...

    There’s probably no problem at all.

    A much more rational answer would be Omega is incapable of printing dials with "marker symmetry" forget in-house movements etc. The hardest part of Watch making is printing dials and I thought I had OCD.

    WTH r u talking bout? I see nothing lacking symmetry. Photos are notorious for distortion, but here I dont even see it
    Here is the actual watch - tried it on the other day. Although wasn't for me, the dial looked fine.

    Perhaps stick w Corgeut\Debert\TigerConcept... Easier to justify perceived or actual flaws.

    Haha, I was going to ask why all the hostility, but looked at the OP's post history. Still a bit snippy of a thread, but in short to the OP, if you want to see the difference between an homage and the real deal, head to a shop and handle a few. They get all the tiny little details perfect, so you feel even the things you don't consciously see.
