    Something is wrong with this very expensive watch

    Pic is from an Haute Time article. Source photo is probably the manufacturer.

    The dial markers aren't evenly spaced. Especially noticeable at 12.

    The little rectangle markers or the Roman numerals? The rectangles are fine. The numerals are a design choice.

    No sorry, you're right, just noticed 12 compared to the triangle above...

    The small square markers. You can see the offset at the 12:00 position. The triangle seems liked it's lined with the case.

    Something is wrong with this very expensive watch

    The alignment of the hour marker and the five-minute interval marker in the chapter ring exasperates me..took me a good 30 minutes to understand the symmetry..apparently, the five minute interval markers are to the left of the (imaginary) center of the hour markers..

    Weird design choice..

    The small triangles looks like it's aligned to the center of the hour markers and not the five-minute interval markers so it appears that the two are not aligned and they are not..

    Add in the fact that there are 24 triangle notches to 12 five-minute interval markers then it would give of an impression that they are not aligned..

    As I have said, weird design choice..

    Hmm, when you said that there is something wrong with this very expensive watch, I thought you meant the hideous dial color, layout and overall design.

    Just a stuff-up of the 3D render. I'm guessing someone miscalculated the spacing of the chapter ring and either didn't notice, or didn't care.

    You'd hope the final product turns out OK.

    You are using a picture made by someone else so you really can't say whether there is a misalignment or not. It could be a parallax error. Possibly the shot was tilted a bit. And one or more of the glass surfaces may be curved.

    With all of the other gaudy stuff competing for attention a minor misalignment would have been missed by most.

    QA just might have had an off day.

    Regardless of the reasons, it's not a picture a high-end watch brand should have released.
