Faaark! I'm in *wuv*
I think the SRP777J1 is Blue because the SRP787K1 is Blue.
I think it goes as follows:
SRP773J1 - Black
SRP775J1 - Gold
SRP777J1 - Blue
SRP779J1 - Red
SRP787K1 - Blue with Blue Hand(s)
SRP789K1 - Red with Red Hand(s)
If so, I'm saving up for a 773 and 775!

- Endless debate about Prospex logo ruining the dial layout.
- Endless debate about balanced second hand.
- At $250 (if that is the correct price) debates about the quality of the bracelet on 773/775.
- At $250 (if that is the correct price) there will be QC issues on some pieces with dial/chapter ring alignment, date wheel alignment, bezel issues, unevenly applied Lumibrite, and so on.
- I hesitate to mention this one, but ... they'll be a campaign (soon?) to give the new diver a nickname like Ninja or Ronin.
I'll lose my mind if they don't correct the chapter ring alignment in these releases. I even notice it in Seiko's marketing images! Absolutely unacceptable.

Cleaned up the pic a bit, just so I could look at it!
Thanks for the pic mate,
Wonder if this is an orange or red bezel, its hard to tell, it will probably be traditional red but if its orange im all over it, regardless i love em and love the cushion case, very retro and classical, a bit like the seiko Turtle.

It happens on watches like the Seiko Marine Master Professional 300m Auto too. On his website, Seiya-san has a disclaimer for the MM 300 which reads:NOTE:
The chapter ring and index & bezel index and face index not being aligned perfectly.
In general, Seiko's screw down crowns are not smooth as Swiss manufactures'.
It took me a long time to realize this, but everything can be fixed or replaced on watches that don't meet one's expectations. For example, say you badly marred the case on a Grand Seiko. You could have the whole case replaced if you pony up the bucks.
It's all part of the game.
Hey, I'll start the naming! My favorite thing about the 6309s is the "sword" at the 12 o'clock marker so I recommend "Seiko Sword Diver", "Seiko Sword" or "Sword".
But please note, it is never "the Sword". That is just wrong.
P.S. 63Sword? Sword63?
