Cyclops not perfectly aligned on Submariner

Hello,

I have noticed that the cyclops on my new Sub is not perfectly aligned. Is this something that happens? Should I find it acceptable
Thanks!


EDIT:

Iエm adding this picture, of the same watch to my original post!

Bring it back. I can understand if you find that unacceptable, I would.

I bought it second hand. Makes me wonder if there is anything else.
It should not be a problem bringing it back where it was originally bought.

The hands are yellow, just bad lightning.

you are 99% wrong my friend. The watch is perfectly fine. It has gen dial, gen insert, gen bracelet, gen crystal. The case is also genuine as it has the latest matrix rehaut.
The crystal could have easily been replaced with a service one and maybe at that time it wasnt aligned perfectly.

I agree. I think there are some people here, who are appearing to speak from a position of knowledge and authority, yet are unnecessarily alarming the OP with their misstatements of fact. Something is off with the crystal/cyclops, but I see no basis for the replica/fake claims. Pretty reckless claims, in my opinion. Maybe some apologies in order.

Looks fake to me as well, although I'm far from an expert. The "4" is a little off, the machining of the ridges in the rotating bezel isn't right, hands aren't correct (or at least not original), etc. That said, pics are VERY often deceiving and you'll be taking it in anyway to get the cyclops fixed, so you'll have a resolution soon anyway.

Edit: I take some of that back, I think it may just be the angle of your photos. If your hands are indeed YG, you're probably golden! Apologies for any heart in throat caused!

You are wrong. The watch is a gen. Even if the first pic looks off, it is 100% gen. Why do you think it is a rep? Look at the dial, hands and LEC. They are obvious check point for rep and gen.

Wow, the 1st picture reminds me of a replica TT Sub Maxi dial I've encountered before in the infamous flea market in Petaling Street ,Kuala Lumpur. That watch was of a high grade Swiss made Rolex Clone Solid 904L SS 18K YG PVD plated, Swiss made ceramic insert, the Crown was atypical like this one, the Arabic numerals on the diving scale were subtly different esp the '3' in 30 , and the '4' in 40

I won't be making any comments on the second photo but for total peace of mind, I suggest that you bring your watch to the RSC for a thorough examination since you bought it preowned

Careful, they just outlawed fake news in Malaysia, punishable by up to six years in jail.

I'm very impressed you're following the current news in Malaysia.Yes, The Anti Fake News legislation(as a preventive measure against the spread of unverified or fake news) was just passed in Parliament today ahead of the general elections and yes, it carries a heavy punishment of upto 6 years in prison and a maximum fine worth 14 Rolex GMT Master II Pepsi Ref 126710 BLRO at MSRP !!
On the other hand, Petaling Street is a very well known flea market in the heart of KL
