I take it you did not have QC pictures to review prior to shipping of this watch?

I hope you didn’t have to pay too much for this. How much was it?

I used to own a U1 Patek, and from what I can see they have really let themselves go.

The date font is different, and rather unaligned. The dial printing is way off compared to the watch I owned. 
 

Here’s a pic of my U1 for reference;

If you recieved yours with the scratch on the dial I hope you let the seller know straight away. 
Even through DHGate you should be able to get a replacement

I know it’s a pain but go through the process of contacting the seller to get a refund/replacement ( do not send this one back until you receive it) be polite but firm that this is not acceptable ,send photographs . If the seller is uncooperative then take it up through the complaints procedure.

I recently received a  non functioning “seamaster” and ended up with half my money back ( plus I had a case- now modified to take another

movement and a broken movement to practice on! So all is not lost!:christmas1:
