    I suspect that this will be considered 'within specification' by Omega.
    I agree that at over 5k, these things should be perfect, however, I also acknowledge that this is, unfortunately, an unrealistic expectation.
    I could stop buying watches, but I'm no quitter.

    Rolex Submariner Ceramic ND 114060.
    Grand Seiko SBGN001G GMT.
    Omega Aqua Terra 8500.
    Omega Planet Ocean 8800.
    Omega Speedmaster 1863.

    Casio MRG-8100B-1AJF.
    Casio MRG-7600-1AJF.
    Casio MRG-7700-1AJF.
    Casio GMW-B5000-1ER.
    Casio GW-5000-1AJF.

    I saw it in the photo immediately. It is misaligned, and agree that it is unacceptable on a 5K watch.

    After a bad experience when an alignment issues completely ruined my enjoyment of what was at the time the most expensive watch I had bought, I carried a small loupe with me for the next purchase.

    Hope they can find a solution for you.

    It looks to be slightly off. I’d ask them to try and get a better fit and then hope for the best.

    If it was a Seiko we’d be saying, Wow, it’s almost a perfect fit ;)

    I don't think I have ever owned a diver whose bezel was not 1mm off or so. It's annoying now, but you'll get over it. It's not worth sending this to Omega to have it fixed under warranty because it will take months.

    PO 8900 Bezel Alignment

    I wouldn't expect this of a watch at this price point. I'm not surprised either.

    I had a PO 2500 which on close examination had applied markings off-centre. It must have been made on a Friday afternoon. A favourite watch an the worst watch I've owned.

    My new PO 8900 LE seems to perfectly aligned. Applied markings in correct position.

    Consider getting it corrected and don't buy into the ADs excuses. We pay an extraordinary amount for our watches. We sometimes neglect to put into perspective how much we spend because we are enthusiasts. The general non-WIS person on a low to medium income wouldn't dream of spending what we spend on a watch.

    I have a Tag Heuer F1 that had the same issue. I left it with Tag Heuer to align under warranty, it's better but not perfect. It's a $1000AUD watch, not a $8000aud Omega.
