    [QC] Is this 9 o'clock marker crooked? Rolex Daytona 116500 Noob v2

    I read through the QC thread so I hope this ok... Is the 9 o'clock marker off kilter? It seems fairly noticeable when looking at the macro shots but I can't tell if it would be noticeable in person or not. Would this be a RL?

    You have to decide for yourself. What is a show stopper for some people might not be a problem to others at all.

      Normally if you’re not happy with the product it should go back, but how long would you have to wait for a new one if you reject it now?

      Perhaps you could pick it up like this and get an aftermarket dial - sounds like an adventure but that’s what makes it fun

        you will not see it irl, dw, if it really bothers you, you should go to a watchsmith and make him fix it in a couple minutes

          It looks perfect, accept it.

          Btw what do the clasp, the caseback and the case sides have to do with your question about the crooked marker?
          How did the cat get so fat?

            Do your eyes deceive you, now look at the 3 o'clock marker.

              Not sure what you mean. Is the 3 o'clock also crooked? If so, I think that'll be fine considering I didn't notice.

                I'd do the same. Not uncommon for the next rep to be worse. Playing the waiting game sucks as we're all like addicted kids

                  Iike above said, it’s not crazily noticeable irl... but what I know that is even in gen, sometimes, and most of the times the dials on Daytona doesn’t really align as much as the regular models or sports model... I’d give this a go... and yes like above said, the waiting game sucks!!! I would take it and save some bucks for mod... that’d make more sense???

                    That was a mistake, I was using the same imgbb for multiple posts.

                      Sorry this is a noob question but what would the ballpark cost of this be? I'll look for some recommended watchrepair folks and see if any are local.

                        Any idea what that would cost?

                            Thanks, I'll get it for now and play with it later.

                            Appreciate the advice.
