I was under the impression that they'ed figured this out, but don't know how long it would take to fix. In any case it doesn't make sense to buy a brand new watch knowing you'll have to get it fixed unless it's a limited edition or a special serial number.
There's a little bit of a pause before the 24 hour ring starts moving. So it should be aligned properly when you move hte hands forward to an exact hour, but not if you move them backwards.
It really is an amazing watch to own and wear
