114060 Bought from a private seller

I bought the watch this past week from a private seller. He has some reviews in the Reddit watchex forum. I had the watch sized at a AD the day I received it. Iíve started getting worried the past few days for the following reasons. The booklets in the box it came with are for a DJ. I have asked the seller why that is, he wants to see if he shipped the wrong booklets. The watch also has a weird gap under the bezel at the 6 oíclock. I can actually push on it and it springs back up every time. My 16613 doesnít have that issue. Can anyone confirm this is normal? I tried as much as I could to get a good picture of the gap

On all 6 digit subs and GMTs the entire bezel should be a bit spongy and spring back when you push it down. Not talking about a lot, but it definitely should have play in it. The gap looks normal to me.

The bezel on 6 digit models ride on spring loaded ball bearings, so that little gap is normal.
I see no red flags. Did you get a warranty card with matching serial #'s?

Thanks everyone for putting my mind at ease. The watch did not come with the warranty which is the major reason for my concern. That little gap seems to be collecting some dirt because I put my hands in my pocket a lot but itís okay. Thanks once more everyone.

If you had the watch sized at an AD, did you ask them to comment on authenticity?

It doesn't need a repair. The bezel should have squish.

I didnít. Their watch repair guy had left for the day. The lady at the front offered to get it sized. Iím not sure she confirmed the authenticity.
