    PR indicator below zero -- normal?

    Well, technically it's above zero, but you know what I mean.

    I've observed it in a lot of Orient pictures, eg:

    Is this an Orient thing or is it a normal behaviour due to some technical specificity of the PR feature?

    TIA.

    With the indicator being recessed on my two PR watches, the hand would be jammed if it was up there.

    I had an Orient with a PR indicator and don’t remember it being calibrated that way. I guess it does allow the indicator to show a little greater than 40.

    Normal, I suppose.

    I suspect it's a design decision, so the numerals aren't scrunched up against the end of the curved feature that defines the PR area.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    My Orient M-Force PR indicator does the same thing... pretty much standard with Orient watches..
