    How's the QC on the sbc055 ?

    My ad is going order me one in for 40% off CAD equal to 630$. However since I cannot check it out in advance I'm worried about misaligned chapter rings or God knows what else. They only order the higher prices models by personal orders because they are a small local shop and need to make sure they sell. So I don't want to have them order one thinking I'm going to buy and then it has some QC issues that deter me.

    They also can order me a baby MM or sumo if perhaps they are a more safe bet in terms of QC ? Or are they all about the same ? I do prefer sbc055 if I can get a perfect example.

    When it comes to Seiko nothing can be guaranteed where alignment is concerned but your odds should be better than if you were buying, say, a Turtle. I’d take the gamble (for that’s what it is a bit) to get hold of such a good looking watch.

    It's Seiko QC. Try your luck.

    Completely random,there are no guarantees with Seiko alignment.
    Both my SKX009 from 2018 bought new had alignment issues as does my solar Street Tuna bought this year.
    All bets are off.

    For 40% off it's worth a try, but maybe not if you aren't prepared to return it.
