    I would have.
    ​​​​​Whatever misalignment there is - frankly, I have difficulty spotting it - will be unnoticeable in real life.

    We are used to hi res blown-up pics here on the forum, that reveal the kind of details that are simply almost invisible to the naked eye when you hold the watch in your hand.

    I totally understand you want the best possible deal, but at some point you may just want to accept that this is as good as it gets.

      on top of that, i asked EVERY SINGLE TIME for timegraph and detailed pics, which i had to wait for EVERY SINGLE TIME for two days after the first 4 arrived.
      The datewheel i can live with. Misaligned logo? No. Not in a dial which has horizontal lines.
      ​​​​​​Don't care if he blacklists me as i am not going to buy anymore from him. As i already said, my feeling is that i got sent pics of pre rejected watches which he is trying to sell to a newbie

      I thought you were on your 4th Aqua Terra.
      My bad.

          I just realized that I posted this info on the other thread.

          Now I can confirm that at least there is some numbers of the genuine Omega Aqua Terra Gray dial model watch with the BLACK color date and WHITE color background date wheel.

          The picture of genuine watches below shows the evidence from the Authentic Omega shop. I took the picture and did try this on my wrist in person and took a look very closely, it was black date and white background date wheel on the gray dial Aqua Terra.
          IN CONCLUSION: VSF version is correct.

          The watches on the picture is under the glass showcase box.

          But I had a chance to see it outside of the glass showcase box. The date wheel color was white actually. I was able to see the white dial watches too.

            Good search for info vcappp but I think it really doesn't matter if the datewheel is of white or grey tone on the grey dial version aqua terra from vfs, the dial is still so flawed compared to the gen with the purple/pink hue on it so that is where you have to make your choice to buy it or not in my mind.

                I have been thinking about getting this black dial after buying the white dial months ago!

                  Hi,
                  I'm going to buy a white dial one. Are you satisfied with it?
                  Thanks

                    Yes! It is great! But you just need to check the alignment of the omega logo and indices in your QC pictures. If those are nicely aligned, it is a perfect watch! Thats why i am considering to get a black dial as well

                      I just received my white AT from a trusted dealer here and immediately noticed a fairly major issue. The hour and minute hands do not line up appropriately. This was not the case in the QC pictures that I received, so I'm wondering what the heck happened between the QC pictures and me receiving the watch. I've initiated an RMA with the trusted dealer, but it's very frustrating to have this happen. Has anyone else seen something like this or experienced this before?

                        Wow that is way off, try pulling it out half click and setting just the hour hand to see if it maybe clicks into place. If you don't want to send it back that's probably a pretty cheap job if you have a local watchmaker.

                          It truly seems like a misaligned hand stack. You can try setting the hour hand with the first half-click setting and it will jump hours appropriately, but will remain misaligned. The movement seems to be working normally. If you are patient, you can move the hour hand to the halfway point in its setting before it jumps into place and it will look aligned, but any time you push the crown back to its normal operating spot it will snap forward or backwards to its misaligned point. I believe the TD knew this was an issue and managed to set the hands correctly for the front-facing QC pictures, as once they put it on the timegrapher you can just barely tell through the picture that the stack is misaligned. After seeing the front facing pictures and the appropriate alignment, I barely even looked at the watch itself on the timegrapher shot as I had no reason to doubt that the front-facing pictures were anything but legitimate. It feels pretty shitty to be taken advantage of like that. I suppose I've learned my lesson from this particular TD and won't be dealing with them again. I'm going to look into some US based repair shops to see if they can restack the hands.

                            Have you notified the TD and what was his response?
                            If not to your satisfaction you should inform a mod about this.

                              Here is my gray dial. Thinking of also picking up the blue version.

                                How is everyone finding their straps? I have seen people say both are cheap/bad/okay through various threads
