    Steinhart
    I have a new Ocean Vintage GMT (4 weeks old), and while adjusting the GMT hand for a visit to China I noticed that the GMT hand is not correctly aligned with the hour hand, it is 20 minutes behind. Like when it is exactly 10:00, the GMT hand is pointing at 09:40 on the 24 hour bezel, when they...
  2. SKX013 Alignment Issues

    Seiko
    Hey watch addicts! I just got my SKX013K2 in the mail and was disappointed to see the triangle on the bezel doesn't line up to the 12 o'clock marker. Its either to the left or to the right depending where you click it. Also, the 6 o'clock marker doesn't line up with the 30 minute marker on the...
  3. Hour hand doesn't line up

    Orient
    The hour hand on my Orient Ray II is always a bit in advance of the real time. For instance, when the minute hand says 12, the hour hand says it's about 10 minutes after the hour. Has anybody else run into this? The only way I can think of to fix it is to open the watch up and move the hour hand...

  5. If your bezel insert is crooked

    Steinhart
    I've noticed a few threads about bezel inserts arriving crooked from Steinhart. This was the case with my O1C out of the box. It was about 15 seconds off CCW, and it bugged me to no end that first day wearing it. It was an easy fix however. The insert is held to the bezel frame with an...

  7. Omega Pre-Bond: Possible to fix or line up bezel that is 1/2 a click off? Also gold clasp insert...

    Omega
    I'm at the office with little to do, wearing my Omega Seamaster 200m Pre-Bond. Love this watch, but the bezel is off by around 1/2 a click so it just doesn't line up and the longer I own the watch, the more it bothers me. This is a solid gold bezel so buying a new one would be outrageous (and...
  8. Nomos hour hand alignment problem?

    Public Forum
    I happened to look at my watch a exactly six o'clock today and I noticed that the hour hand looks slightly ahead of where it should be. It is only really noticeable in relation to the seconds subdial. The weird thing is that the hands align perfectly on top of one another at 12 o'clock (and I...

  10. PRC200 Second hand alignment question

    Tissot
    Hi, I recently purchased a new PRC200 online. On the first one I received I noticed the second hand did not quite hit all of the markers. I realized this was a pretty minor thing but it bugged me enough to send it back for another one, hoping that it would of course be better. The replacement...
