    I think @shofzr may know.

    But HQ knows how to fix it pretty fast from what I understand

    I have 7 or 8 with no troubles. To fix you will have to remove the case cover, then crown. Take out the movement and move the hands manually until they line up. Be careful not to bend the hands. I have used a plastic screw driver on a few GMT's.

    @Oakley-olic is right about the procedure to re-align the hands.

    However The cause could be excessive end shake of the hour wheel ( the wheel sticking through the dial that the hour hand is pressed into)
    if this is the case simply re-aligning the hands won't last as soon as the hour wheel becomes disengaged from the minute wheel .. Boom back where you started.

    Controlling the hour wheel end shake usually requires a "dial washer" or "spring washer" between the hour wheel and dial , keeping the hour wheel engaged with the minute wheel.

    Or the hands could simply be loose on the hour wheel and or cannon pinion. Tightening or replacing the hands would solve this.

    Well It may have happened in shipping . If the box is thrown around .This would explain why it was fine when seller had watch, but was all jacked up when i got it.
    or at least thats how I read @shofzr explanation.


    Thanks
    I will admit. makes me lose a lot of confidence in a watch thats Swiss Made. Not just a Swiss movement
    Not sure if I will continue to get another Killswitch or not.
