    Is the Chapter Ring on my Sumo Misaligned?

    Hi folks,

    As per the thread title, does my Sumo chapter ring look misaligned to you?

    There should be a poll, if I've managed to set that up correctly...

    Thanks very much for looking

    EDIT:

    Hopefully a better picture

    If you can't tell then it's not worth worrying about.

    You need get the camera lens dead centred on the watch and take a close up photo, or nobody is going to be able to tell.

    Yes I'm afraid it is.

    You can see it clearly at 2 minutes to 12 and 2 minutes past twelve and 29 minutes past the hour and 31 minutes past.

    I do not think any sort of angle of view will change that.

    It doesn't look well aligned in the photo.But neither is the lugs on the bottom of the photo.I don't think the watch is sitting perfectly flat,Nor is it sitting square in the picture. Making it hard to tell. I thought a true Seiko misalignment ran forward in time.....

    Infact,looking at the lugs at the bottom,and the ones at the top,everything about that picture is totally up the poop, let alone the chapter ring.

    My understanding is that it depends on what´s misaligned...

    Sometimes the chapter ring was fitted 180 deg out (the retaining pegs/notches in the case aren´t always 100% at 6 and 12*), sometimes the printing is off, sometimes the issue is caused by the feet on the dial, sometimes all three :)

    *this is true on reissue Turtles, don´t know about Sumos

    Looks like the chapter ring needs to be adjusted clockwise...in any case, the alignment is off (as usual).

    It's rather odd in that it appears off at 3 and 6 but closer at 9 and 12.

    But, it's really hard to know based on a pic. In person viewing is the real litmus test.
