Seiko Criteria Limited Edition SNA299P1 Pilot's Watch with Slide Ruler

Do you see that smudge near "TIME" at the inscription "SEIKO TIME CORP." on the movement?
This must be a finger print, or a smudge from a dirty finger cot (the little condom like protectors for finger tips). I am the first owner of the watch and I am sure that the shop did not open this watch. Because I bought it right when these Criteria Limited Editions were released. I must admit that I am quite surprised to find such a mark on a factory new SEIKO movement. I am also quite sure, that the Chinese assembly worker wanted to make sure that the battery was properly sitting in its opening. So at least the intentions were good.
