    To some extent it depends a lot on the exact viewing angle. I am seriously OCD about such things, but none of my dive watches could be considered 100% on the mark from all angles. I have learned to live with them, it is up to you if you can with this ‘normal’ (IMO) situation.

    thanks for the replies so far, just to make it clearer here are the shots of the 11 and 1 markers, they aren't so much out as it looks in the first photos, as other posters have said the angles makes a large difference. it probably is around 1/4 second ish.

    It's miniscule. If it bothers you get it fixed. Sometimes I think mine is also misaligned, but the more I stare, the more I'm insure. At some point I stopped giving a ..... I love this watch.

    I suspect it will be considered 'within spec' by Omega.
    However, If Archer visits, he'll be able to give you a more definite answer.

    My older PO was misaligned by OMEGA when it came back from service. But not enough to warrant being without it all over again. I really wouldn’t bother if I was you. It’s not bad enough, unless of course it’s keeping you awake at nights. I get some people can’t help themselves and if that’s what you want then do it. It’s not a cheap watch.

    But if you’ve only bought that ‘a few days ago’ I would imagine you’re perfectly entitled to take it back and swap it out for one you’re happy with? Some AD are capable of doing the adjustment in store too.

    What about a photo of the entire dial as centred as possible. To my eyes that looks way off. In your second photo, if you align the 1 up properly the 12 pip is going to be quite a bit out but I cant see how that would affect the rest of the markers. It may be that getting the triangle aligned at 12 may only show a couple of numbers to be off or it could show all of them to be out.

    just to make sure, you can try this:
    take something that you know is perfectly straight, not made of metal, so as not to risk scratches,
    ideally with some 'give' so that you can bend it to conform to the curve of the crystal.
    crown in position, put it across from one marker to it's opposite, check if it passes the centre of the dial and matches the corresponding dial markers.
    > important < the bezel has a little play between clicks, just a fraction of a mm,
    make sure any deviance you find can't be corrected within the tolerance of this play.

    try this in a couple of different bezel positions, and you'll know if in fact the misalignment is there and bothers you too much to wait and mention only on occasion of the regular service.

    one advice, though, if you find yourself in a situation where you'll be sending pics for an inicial evaluation,
    macros are good for pinpointing defects and misalignments between elements that are at the same level,
    such as with the seiko previously pictured,
    but, for dial to bezel alignment, it is best to use pictures of the whole watch, on a flat surface, from a straight angle,
    ideally, if you know how,
    use a computer program to draw straight lines in the picture that evidence the misalignment you notice.
