I bought my XL from Mark too. Not sure what you mean about the date/day not lining up. You may want to post a pic ? As far as the crown, mine does wobble a bit but I think this is typical as there should be some play.got the XL luminous dial today. The day and date do not line up (very noticeable) and the crown is wobbly when screwing it back in. Is this normal for the XL I do not recall this with the black ray I used to have. Mark from Island Watch said that I could return it and sent me a label. Just want to make sure that my expectations are not greater than they should be at this price point.
I think I have to agree although I have not worn it since it arrived. I gave it a few shakes and set it and put it back in the box and it is still holding time. I can probably overlook a couple of small issues for that especially at this price. Guess its time to size the band and let Mark at IW know I am keeping it.I have two Mako xl's. Blue and a lume faced,they both have a little issue with the date lining up but on the plus side they keep great time. At this price point I can overlook a minor thing as the date window matching up. If it was two or three times then price it would be a major issue.
