seiko srpe51 regulator pin position

Can someone tell me why

seiko sends this model watch with the regulator pin in the plus position. I have had numerous seikos with the 4r36 and 35 movements as well as their nh35 movements. The reg. pin was always set in the middle position between the plus and minus. Is this just a setting placed on the robotics that assembled the watch at the factory? Or on the other hand, has this watch been regulated outside the seiko factory. It's running well within spec since my purchase , a week ago. 6 to 10 + spd.

Just want to know if someone dicked around with it other than seiko.
Where'd you buy it?
the bay canada's largest (only) department store.....similar to a Macy's...

Highly doubtful anyone messed with it. I just looked at a few of mine and the regulator pin looks like yours on one and varying positions on the others with only one in the middle.
None have been opened.

thank you for that. i was concerned because my other 3 have the pin in the middle and they all run about 7 to 10 spd -, which might explain my recent purchase being in the plus to compensate for the others ,spanning almost ten years in age ,consistently running slow .
It's now beeroclock in the pacific northwest. cheers
