Default 6139 minute counter hand alignment question

Hi, I am new here and have a quick question regarding a 6139 minute counter. I was wondering if the counter hand should stay nicely lined up with the hash marks as it makes a full rotation (30min). I just finished up a 6139 and the only issue I see is that the counter hand gets a bit out of sync (with the hash marks) when in the bottom half of the counter sub dial and then syncs up when in the top half of the counter sub dial. I am wondering if this is a quality issue with the Seiko dial or if there is an adjustment to be made with the minute counter wheel? I want to fix the issue but don't want to go back into the movement if I am chasing a flying meatball.


thanks in advanced

OK issue resolved... it was a dial positioning error due to a dial foot bend. The minute counter wheel post was not centered in the opening for the 30 min register
