    Nice! First I've heard of 'uncleseiko', but a quick search turned him up over at the SCWF. That's a great looking strap (and very affordable!). Now, I just wish someone would come up with a 22mm MarineMaster waffle - that is my all-time favorite "vintage" strap.

    Re: @@@ The turtle thread @@@@

    I ordered mine today(1/8/16) at about 2AM and chose the quickest shipping as I want it as soon as possible. I wanted the rubber strapped version(my wrist is not a fan of metal bracelets) but Sears was all out of them(dang early adopters!!!!! ;) ) so I got the metal band version as it was ether that or none at all and I ain't waiting for a restock.

    The metal band will live in the Seiko box. I plan on putting it on a bond nato strap I got from Broad Arrow a few years ago. I may down the line get the Seiko metal band sized up but for now i want to wear it like somebody would have worn the original(ether on rubber strap or cloth band)

    I have a couple of questions for you folks that got the sears.com ones


    1. Does it have country of origin on it? The reason I ask is I cannot find this on Seiko USA's site so perhaps this is a "sanctioned" gray market watch by Seiko to test the market?

    2. Does this come with Sears paperwork in it in order to return it if it I don't like it(can't think that will happen) or if it is defective?

    3. Is Seiko sticking the wrong owners manual in the box?

    4. I have never ordered from Sears.com before, am I able to return a watch from Sears.com to the local Sears store?

    5. How is the crown action on this watch? Is it smooth and does it screw down easy?

    6. Will the Z22 flat strap that is on the SKX173 and A35 fit well on this watch?

    Thanks

    There was someone making those in black and orange versions a few years ago, but I can't remember who. They were stuff like the OEM ones.

    1. Does it have country of origin on it? The reason I ask is I cannot find this on Seiko USA's site so perhaps this is a "sanctioned" gray market watch by Seiko to test the market?

    -oldspice: Not on the watch or in any of the paperwork.

    2. Does this come with Sears paperwork in it in order to return it if it I don't like it(can't think that will happen) or if it is defective?

    -oldspice: Yes, comes with a Sears sales slip and RMA sticker, should you need it. However, the warranty card is un-stamped.

    3. Is Seiko sticking the wrong owners manual in the box?

    -oldspice: Mine has the manual for the quartz, solar Cal. V172 alarm/chrono. Very strange.

    4. I have never ordered from Sears.com before, am I able to return a watch from Sears.com to the local Sears store?

    -oldspice: No idea, check with Sears.

    5. How is the crown action on this watch? Is it smooth and does it screw down easy?

    -oldspice: Yes, smooth and turns well.

    6. Will the Z22 flat strap that is on the SKX173 and A35 fit well on this watch?

    -oldspice: Yes, I just got one today, as a matter of fact, and fits well. Also, suites the look of the watch well, too, IMHO.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the waffle strap suggestions, all. But, I really want one of the Seiko straps for the MM, but in 22mm - just looks so cool! Here's one on a Sumo I had....

    Looks and feels great, but I'll take a few days to decide if I want to keep it. Perhaps I'll get the sapphire crystal for it.





    With the waffle strap:



    Next to his older cousin. :)

    Have one on order! Looks good on the waffle!
