Is this off alignment?
 
Hi everyone! Good Thursday!

Is this consider out of alignment for the day wheel? It is spot on for the rest of the days only Thursday seems a bit off to the left hand side... Is it me or? Should I sent it back to the factory?...

Does look a little unbalanced:) too many diamonds on the bottom left corner and too little top right! :p

Beautiful piece:)

I would not worry, the watch looks great btw.

AK797 12 June 2014 08:43 PM

I've seen many of these where the day is not perfectly centred. That is acceptable to me.

ltmgeller 12 June 2014 08:45 PM

Very nice watch.

T is closer to the edge of the frame than if the Y.

Maybe that's why Rolex always pictures their adverts with "Monday" in the day aperture :chuckle:

No, you have the right off-set IMHO...for example, look at this older one and you'll see same difference in spacing...

Beautiful watch....that colour of blue is just perfect. As for the alignment, maybe a tad off, but who cares!

Wow! My jaw dropped when I opened this thread with an innocent title!!

I think it depends on the angle you're looking at it from.

Here is mine and it looks off center:

But here it doesn't:

Enjoy that amazing watch!

That's how they are, particularly when they haven't been wound for a bit and are running low on power reserve. Tap it on your palm in the right direction.

Rags 12 June 2014 11:51 PM

Looks fine. Leave it alone..

ExplorerChris 13 June 2014 12:08 AM

Looks good I'd say that's normal.
Beautiful watch, enjoy

Knappo 1307 13 June 2014 12:20 AM

Beautiful watch, looks good to me....

Crazy nice DD!!! :worship: I wouldn't sweat the alignment of the day... seems to be a common occurence and is probably "technically" correct and within Rolex specs.

Love this watch especially so since it is a gift from the wifey. A tad too heavy to be honest. :cheers: ... james

Paul what you said is true.. Only the Thursday is a little off centered towards the left side, the rest of the days are perfectly aligned. I called by Rolex center, I was told they are more than willing to make it right for me ASAP and will give the watch a light refurbishing if it is necessary FOC. This is Singapore's Rolex Center. Well.. I told them I will think about it maybe my next trip over to Singapore. But second thought, i own this watch around 2 years now and only today I realize it is off centered, I guess I is not that bad huh...

Thank you everyone for your kind inputs and really appreciate it!

:cheers: .. james

Simon.. Thank you! .. This is a relatively rare dial... Not too common in the wild. The diamond looks dead in photos but it actually dancing in the changing lighting and glittering under the sun and epically in dim lighting, it is amazingly lively dial! Well done Rolex!

:cheers: .. james
