Hi all, long term lurker here piping up for a bit of advice if I can. Just noticed that the alignment is slightly out on the hour hand and now it's really bugging me. Does anybody know if this is an easy fix i.e. just having the hands refitted or is it likely a movement issue?

Isn't there a procedure to adjust this with the electronics?

I think the adjustment via the crown is minutes only. The hour hand is assumed to be in alignment. Often used when changing battery, as time sometimes goes a little wacky.

Yep - I've reset minutes and digi already... Just wondering if it's as easy as having the hands taken off and refitted?

If the hands are consistently slightly out of alignment like that, then yes I would say it's as easy as that.
