    My impression is, that delivery times, that Seiko Germany announces to the retailers must not be exactly reliable, they seem to be more a very serious estimation. You get the idea.
    It should not get much later, but could get a bit later, at least that's what I would expect and that's what I'm experiencing now with my order and my retailer is a well known local jeweler. So should it happen that way, don't blame it on the retailer.
    Good luck!

    Minor déception on the bezel action.
    Probably the best value diver on the market IMO ( asides of the skx00x )


    The rubber band is also very comfortable
    Your dial looks blue in this pic. Is it blue or black?

    There has been conflicting information posted about that, and most photos I've seen make the dial look black.

    Is that really blue? Very difficult to tell. Why on earth wouldn't they use the same blue as the bezel insert?

    Yep, blue, but it changes with the light, same as grey dials that look black and vice versa. I didn't see the 773 in person, but I have no doubt, that it is blue and owners confirm, that it is blue.

    I love this turtle watch but will wait for the right price to come down before going for the kill.

    It is the same blue, but the dial/chapter ring texture and the way light passes through the crystal can change it under certain conditions (especially when you try to photograph it).
