    What's the consensus on the price? Does anyone think it'll tick down a bit?

    I had a quick look at a 775 in a shop yesterday, and by enormous effort of will managed not to acquire it. (I have burnt my watch budget for this quarter... already. :) ) Under artificial light, it seemed different from the fantastic pictures that you have all been posting - more yellow than gold; those of you that have one, how does it look in natural light?

    Thanks! It is lug to lug a bit smaller.

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

    Just want to report that I picked up a 22mm Super Jubilee designed for the 6309 for use with my 779 New Turtle, and it absolutely did not work. I've seen it reported that these bracelets will fit the new models, and my anecdotal evidence unfortunately suggests that isn't the case without modification of the end links. The 6309 intended end links have more of a curve than the lug of the new Turtle case will accept. You can physically get the bracelet "stuck" with the springbars slightly engaged, but they pop right out and the bracelet falls right off at the slightest twisting motion. I should note I've sized and fiddled with every watch and bracelet I've ever bought, don't think it's gonna work unless you feel like filing down the end links of these bracelets.

    Just an FYI.

    Did it ever show a shipping status at Sears.com? I placed my order 31 Dec and it still says "Processing." Its going to an FPO AE, so I know it wont make the shipping date, but others have said it arrived while still in a "Processing" status.
    Cheers
    Sorry for the late reply. My came a couple of day after ordering it...i was shocked. I expected a screw up. The box came from Seiko usa (job well done guys).

    Wow, i'm really, really digging the watch. It's better than my beat up old marine master, lol!!! Seriously, though, the watch is home run and I really dig seeing everyone post up their pics! Keep posting them!
