    An earlier one also looks a little off. Not as much, and it could just be parallax, but still...

    The time is reading 11:37. Could it be that the watch is in the process if changing over from the 9th to the 10th?

    Just a thought.

    It's not a 7S26, though...

    Seamaster 300 White Dial

    The ceramic dial is pretty thick, making the date wheel sit very deep. Just a slight tilt of the watch makes it look misaligned, when it’s really not. I think it’s just more noticeable on the white dial.

    After looking at it closer, it does look like it’s starting to advance. Maybe getting ready for mid-night.

    From the OMEGA website;

    "OMEGA uses the quick date-change system, which starts to change the date at about 11.30 pm and comes to its end at 00.10 am. The date of the ending day can be seen in full until 11.50 pm. Between a period of 10 minutes before and after midnight, the calendar jumps and lets appear the date of the next day."

    According to the OMEGA website this system is used on the following calibres;

    "Quick date-change on calibres 1120, 2300, 2500, 2601, 2610, 2627, 3221, 3301-3, 3304, 3320, 3313, 3330,.3612, 3888, 3890, 8500, 8501, 8521, 8601, 8611

    I'm my view, it is entirely possible that a date change has been initiated.

    The picture of watch #1 (w1), which is showing the date as the 9th, is taken fairly dead-on, and in my view cannot show such a large deviation at the date window.

    The picture of watch #2 (w2), which is showing the date as the 8th, was taken at a slight angle with the camera aiming from the left of the dial. This angle will show the 8 as being closer to the left side of the window than the right...giving the impression of a misaligned date wheel/window.

    In my opinion, what we're seeing as a possible misalignment on w1 is actually a movement in the process of a date change.

    Thank you for the spec on this. The “misaligned” 9 brought me here
