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.

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

Maybe cards are different in Norway vs u.s.?

Take it to a local AD. No sense worrying yourself anymore.

Serious note, a few things really do look suspect on this watch, especially on the first pic. Card looks fine.

Your card looks fine to me - it's exactly the same style as mine.
You have the new style card nothing to worry about.
