    Mode Hand on Current model Citizen Skyhawk misaligned?

    So I just bought another Citizen Skyhawk Blue Angels Model Y8078-52L watch. I gave my almost new one to my brother who is in the NAVY(Blue Angels team is looked on with pride by the NAVY). I found myself missing it so i bought a new one. I got it on sale at Citizen.com. I took it to get sized up and just got a good look at the watch. The watch looks great on the whole. However the mode hand (the little had at 6 o'clock that selects the functions) is a bit misaligned. It looks good until I select WT-S and instead of pointing at the middle of the WT-S, it is pointing slightly left of it. The functions work fine and there is no problem selecting the function (like time, cal etc)

    Do any of you have one of the current Citizen Skyhawk models? Is the function hand misaligned?

    Here are some pic

    Thanks

    In the U680 manual, it appears that the mode hand is one of the hands that can't be aligned when adjusting the reference positions, which is unfortunate. I guess the service center would have to remove and reset the hand.

    I'm a little maniac but it wouldn't bother me if it's limited to this case.

    Btw, is your second hand misaligned or is it an effect of parallax?
