The alignment is a real issue with these, I have seen pictures of some that should never gotten past QC. That said, it is a watch to mod or at least not worry about and try to 'baby'. It is a tool.
Mark @ LongIslandWatch has a video on his channel on how to align the chapter ring. He is also selling them pre-modded with a sapphire crystal in them instead of Hardlex. I believe he also re-aligns any chapter rings which are out of alignment.
Honestly a 7S26 movement does not excite me at all, lack of handwinding is a killer for me. Once you end up with a proper Swiss, higher level Seiko (4R or 6R) or even a nice Microbrand with a awesomely accurate NH35 or 9015 then the low-end Seikos start losing their attraction. At least they did for me.

Seiko watches always look and feel a piece of precision and sturdy engineering and nothing perhaps – other than the Grand Seiko – demonstrates that better than the SKX009K. It’s an excellent 7S26, 21-jewel automatic movement that drives it and the big, unidirectional bezel makes the watch a terrific deal! The very bright, long-lasting lume is an added advantage (eight to ten hours glow); it makes this Seiko truly a Diver’s watch and not just an image-bearer.
