Is this small gap between the endlinks and the watchead common on other 2254.50’s or Omegas from that era? The gap is only visible up close and at an angle. Straight on its imperceptible, as you can see on the third picture.

I’ve heard that very early milebium Omega endlinks are notorious for a looser fit than the newer models. My 2011 PO fits perfectly.

I have fresh 1.8mm spring bars in there and the lug holes don’t seem stretched or distended. So I’m fairly certain this is just how they look, but I figured I’d hear what other 2254.50 owners think. Either way it’s not really a huge deal, but my curiousity is piqued.
