    PO - Within Reasonable Tolerances?

    Was extremely happy to buy my first omega a few days ago, however I have noticed that the bezel 12oclock marker seems to be very slightly out ( i mean less than one click, probably around 1/4 of a second), seems to be a little to the right of where it should be. either that or the dial 12oclock marker is out...just wondering what people suggest about this, it really is a small thing, but then its an expensive watch.

    I dont want to go down the road of having omega "fix" it unless it seems worthwhile.

    see what you think!

    Ugh, that's disgusting. That is why I stick with Seiko.

    It's your watch so it really doesn't matter what we think; if you're not happy with it get it sorted so that you are.

    I agree. If it bothers you just have Omega realign the bezel. Should be an easy fix.

    That would probably bother me. If its covered I would go ahead and have Omega fix it. I just sent a new watch in for a clasp that was misaligned - something I didn't notice in the AD. I had to wait almost a month but now it is perfect.

    Looking at that again - it seems even more off at the 10,11,1 and 2 positions.

    Not a big deal. In my experience a slight misalignment is pretty common. I have two Rolex Subs and an Omega PO that have similar misalignments. And I've seen it in a number of others that I've long since sold. As long as it's less than 1/4 of a second, I wouldn't let it bother me.

    But it is your watch and if it really bothers *you* then get it fixed.

    Good luck, and don't let this hobby bring out too much OCD; it can ruin the fun.

    Hmm. Now the misalignment at the other hour markers *does* bother me. They look much worse than merely 1/4 of a second. If you can't adjust the bezel to get a better alignment, then I would definitely take it in for repair. I mean, a certain level of OCD is perfectly healthy . . . despite what I said above.

    sorry, that looks perfectly aligned to me,
    maybe not the best pics to notice it.

    you can get at most two markers aligned with the dial, one and it's opposite, if they make markers two and three with your line of sight being the first.
    the slightest misalignment with your line of sight or slanting of either the watch or your head may very well make none of them correspond with a dial marker.
    this is even more pronounced on a watch with a deep dial like the PO,
    bezel and dial are at different heights, so, perspective makes it impossible to see them as in flat computer renderings since your sight works with one given point of focus only.

    I have a 45.5mm 8500,
    with a ruler going from marker to opposite marker on the bezel, they perfectly match the markers on the dial and the line passes the exact centre of the watch, but,
    looking at it on my wrist or in pics, I'm lucky if I can match a single one bezel to dial.
