    I found this pie pan connie and noticed the A from OMEGA is not aligned.

    20200728_231038.jpg

    I thought of it as a redial first but when I looked online I saw the similar issue in other listings:

    Is this a manufacturing defect or are all of the above photos redialed?

    Note: I also noticed the hands in the 1st photo has unfilled space in the middle part. Is that the lume falling out?

    The third is a redial. While the A is a bit odd on the first two, it isn’t concerning IMO. They both have a similar dial configuration too so maybe just a quirk of his batch of dials?

    Yes, missing lume.

    Or a cack-handed watchmaker cleaning the dial during service.

    They didn’t leave the factory like that, ergo some intervention has occurred.

    Thanks everyone for your inputs. That misaligned A is really bothersome. Lol
