    Have your GPR service manual handy when assembling to refer to the proper torque sequence of the case bolts and torque settings.
    Make sure all your locator pins are in prior to assembly and properly set !
    Make sure all the thread holes are clean and bolts are free of rust / old loctite and/or dirt.
    Clean surfaces well with acetone prior to assembling the halves.
    Be careful not to put too much 1211 and plug up any oil supply holes where the fornt rear bearings mount.
    Apply a thin 1/4" > 1/2" bead of 1211 on both of the case halves and smear with your finger so you cover the bare mounting surface fully.
    Apply some in the channels where the crank case seals will be sitting in, but again becareful and not plug up any oil holes !
    There should be no gaps after assembly

    See pic below, as the halves are being mated together, some 1211 will escape from the halves. This is fine.

    Sounds to me like his crank pins are not set right and his bearing pins are not in there respective holes. If this is the case and you torqued the case bolts already you most likely have recessed the bearing pins into the case and possibly have damage the case and or crank bearing pins.

    If you get the watch, you have to get the bracelet for the other arm to stay balanced
