    Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but maybe in order to distinguish these from the original turtles these should be dubbed the ninja turtles.

    There are 4 of them and the ninja bit kinda fits with the whole sumo, shogun vibe.

    That's moRe than a couple!
    Wow.
    anyways, to answer one of them, no you can't return it to the store. It's stated in the paperwork it comes with. Must be shipped back. No prepaid label.

    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

    Don´t think so, see the SKX for example.

    Looking for a rubber strap for the 773... anyone know if Seiko makes a the same strap as on the 777 and 779, but in BLUE? If so, where to buy?

    SBBN037 blue Tuna

    Just Arrived, Seiko SRP777 Turtle Diver, Modern 6309

    Strap comparison: SBBN03__ vs. SRP77__

    Last year, I acquired an SBBN037 which came with a blue strap and while I found the strap very comfortable and high quality, I really wanted a black strap on this watch. I liked everything about the blue OEM strap minus the color and the lack of a second keeper loop.

    When the new Turtle came out I was curious if the straps would be the same. Turns out they are not. Both are listed in specs as silicone and are both much more comfortable than the old urethane Seiko straps like the Z22. But the Tuna strap is better--it doesn't attract dust, whereas the Turtle strap is a bit of a magnet. It seems a bit less grabby on the skin too, but this may also be in part because the designs are slightly different. The photos are hard to see perhaps, but the Tuna strap has a very different texture on the underside. And--get this--shorter on the buckle side by nearly half a centimeter (est.).

    Strap comparison: SBBN03__ vs. SRP77__

    Try calling Seiko. They are supposedly getting a black one in for me sent from Japan.

    Not selling mine though.

    That's too bad that these new silicone straps are such a dust magnet, I think they look great, especially the metal keeper.

    His stock is updated daily on his website (and so is the RM to USD). Right now all he has is the 779, but yesterday he also had the 777. He's selling them as fast as he gets them. Took about 2 & 1/2 weeks to get to NC from Malaysia (I ordered the 777 and 773 from him in December). The 777 and 779 are priced at $311 today.

    Very glad for the comparison. Thanks!
    I was hoping I could source cheap straps that matched the Tuna from these models, but I guess not. I love my Tuna silicon strap.

    I nabbed a couple before Christmas and they're still in the box hahaha

    I'm thinking if I should sell one or even both. My 6105 with came along with the delivery has really been an attention seeker..
