My 116600 is slightly off like that, I've seen it more often than not. Buddy's hulk and his brothers WG Sub: same thing. I've stopped caring but yes it's annoying. Lol

No never bothered me. UNITL NOW!!!! Jk. I will have a look at my watch for sh**s and giggles, but it’s not something that would bother me.

The triangle not lining up perfectly at 12 is something that would bug me. In fact RSC fixed a bezel for Mehta had the issue. I didn’t bring it there for that reason, but while the watch was in I mentioned it, and they said “we’ll fix that” for you too.

This thread may bring Peter (padi) back!

OP, although I am not OCD (I notice imperfections but I can accept them), I sympathize with you. One would expect a bit more from the "Rolex way". However, if that level of detail is important, there are other brands that can satisfy that crave for "perfection". Rolex excels in many ways but not in that department.

Iíll admit to having my own OCD tendencies but I donít go looking or issues. I donít see the point of taking out a loupe to examine a watch or magnified photo. If I donít see it with the naked eye, it ainít there.
IMO, No matter the price point, imperfections of some type on a handmade product are possible since humans are human.

unless he meant Where' "Cat's Whisper" like that's Padi's nickname. I know Padi's not much for nicknames but that's a pretty cool nickname.

Mass produced watch is not for anyone with OCD.
As far as what a Rolex costs, still has little to do with a mass produced watch.
Bottom line comes off a production line.

This is on the same level as the non-aligned center of the triangle and the center of the text "Perpetual": Negligible.

Just saying I donít think itís a coincidence that Seiko makes their Bezel symmetrical. I know that the image is magnified, and I totally agree that the alignment of the triangle is most important.
The thread was simply an attempt to find people just as ill as myself, which I obviously failed to do

Regarding the 9-position, I think this is due to the angle of the camera when taking the picture. The position is exactly like on the 3-position.
I never noticed it, but I agree with you. It should be aligned. It's just a matter of taking a little bit more care when fitting the ceramic insert.
Btw Seiko quality control is second to none.

For all you praising Seiko for their QC I suggest searching for Seiko misaligned bezels, a very common occurrence!

Also, while we are at it, do the ridges on the crown need to align with the bezel and the markers on the dial?

Dont know but my DJII fluted bezel does. I am pretty sure the Sub is not supposed to as the teeth align up with the stem at 3 o'clock.. You cant have the stem and top align together on the Subs bezel.
Now does everybody feel better there is symmetry back ??

One would think that Rolex would nail this one, but my experience is that itís completely random whether or not your notches on the bezel are aligned correctly.
Have seen a dozen of Seikos getting this right, same goes for my DeepBlue Daynight.

My own hulk lines up 90% perfect, but look at the attached image - this image is used by Rolex themselves on their website

Not hating Rolex for this, but I thought we could expect near impeccable work from such a watchmaker.

EDIT: Please post photos of your own Rolex and how it lines up.


I frequently change the inserts on my 16710 and I did notice that the pearl does not center in the knurled edges.... but thatís ok imo. As long as the pearl is centered with the dial markers, thatís what matters to me. You do have an interesting point. All they would have to do is adjust the mold a little one way or the other and the pearl would be centered in a notch on the outer bezel. Oh, well... Iím pretty OCD, but Iím gonna choose not to let that bother me.

Wait a second, you got a pearl on your 16710 bezel? Lucky! I just have a lousy inverted triangle. But it IS centered between two knurls.

OP - you are looking at a massively magnified image.
Under normal everyday conditions the bezel notches are so small one can hardly see them in any great detail let alone see that they aren't in line with the 12 o'clock triangle and bezel pip.
They are just a machined edge designed to give grip only and it's not 'a thing' that they should line up with anything.
I thought I was a bit OCD but this is next level stuff...
Seriously, just enjoy your watch - it's fine and not faulty..
Cheers

OP, I agree 100% with you... I have the same problem and it certainly annoys me. Every time I put the watch on I check it, I think it's getting to the stage of me sending back to RSC.

my bezel on my 114060 aligns with the notches on the dial, but there is some play in between clicks, is this normal?

OK, so after my last post on this topic, OCD plaged me...so looking through a magnifying glass, not a loop, plain lighted magnifying glass. I discovered that I am left eye dominant. Each time I looked at the trough the glass alignment was off to the right. when I looked through single eye loop it all lines up.....now I guess it all just matter of perspective?????

OCD will take years off your life,,,,,enjoy the world and all it's imperfections.
