For what it's worth, I agree with @rbhan12, @smoothie1, and @Fishball. This is completely normal with closed channel shoes, of which I have several pairs. It's not an issue over which you should waste time, effort, and money returning the shoes. The thin rib of sole leather that covers the channel is cemented down. This bond is weak enough to be separated by the stresses placed on it during walking. Whether it does will depend on the combination of last and gait. Even if...
Congratulations. A friend has this and it's a stunning watch in the flesh. Glows, somehow.

Seems like an attractive poor man's alternative to a Daytona at around USD 3k. I understand the movement is solid (and also a minor milestone in horological history). Example:
Agree with you. That's why I wrote almost. I doubt I'll ever part with my Oysterquartz because I love its 1970s futurist aesthetic. Plus it's one of the rarer Rolexes - I've only seen one other in the wild.Also, shouldn't the plural of Rolex be Rolices?
