Unfortunately, it’s not a load of crap. The seller is just being upfront, forthcoming and honest.I'm thinking of buying a blue turtle and one of the lowest prices says "Possible manufacurer chapter ring and bezel misalignment within the normal margin of error" in the description. Seller is trying to stop returns but I don't think Seiko states what "normal margin of error" is.
Got me thinking though that maybe I could score a used Turtle with slight bezel misalignment for a good price. Don't think it would bother me that much if I could find one cheap enough.
While Seiko doesn’t state or publish any tolerances, they don’t perform warranty work on these. So that is them saying that it’s within spec or normal margin of error. We just don’t know how that’s determined. Do they measure? Or just eyeball it?
I’m also in the buying mode. Problem is that I can’t decide on what model to get next. Too many good looking Turtles.Your's look very beaten watch indeed. Good to see such a watch anywhere. I am inclined to buy this model. What is your personal opinion of it? I would value much. regards
