Agree with

Agreed with cannop, bent Tab's for alignment.........
then check legs positioning that can cause those .... Delusions.
I noticed that when first I saw it.
Always before re-assembly, check and double check all that to
get it to the right place, then final check again, once more, then close up..........
Saves Time too.

I must be blind!

I'd get those eyes checked!!
It isn't my watch, seen it for sale somewhere. After the 7548 Kanji debacle, I added check the chapter ring is aligned before buying. I check the chapter ring is aligned, and gently rotate the movement to see if the locating tab has married up with locating dowel on the ring. Then it's crown fully locked, and case back tightened.

It doesn't put me off, I'd buy anything if I like it, even a complete wreck with no chance of spares (sounds stupid, but I'm an optimist). Just surprises me that these things aren't checked by seller.
