    Thank you, this was very helpful! The endmill was an option I was thinking about and it seems to match the steel tone of the x-turtle very, very well. But from what I can see now, the end-links protrude a little bit in height relative to the lugs. Anyway, it still looks great overall!

    Actually, even on the 6309's, they still protrude out on them as well, maybe just a hair or so less. My plan was to change straps and bracelets and take pics to post: Endmill, Black & Milt-Green IsoFrane, DAL1BP flat vent, & a modified (SKX) Jubilee bracelet. I started w/the Black ISO, switched to the Endmill, and ...that's all she wrote for now. I've got 6309 Endlinks incoming to convert a Yobokies Beads of Rice, but that'll be a few weeks as Harold's on Vacation.

    Nice. I have a few 20mm sholderless springbars from the ebay Twenty-0. He shipped them quickly and they are tough suckers. Do they protrude out of the holes? On my Seiko SNE109(which was the watch i bought them for as the original bars kept clicking) the tips stuck out of the lug holes but on my Monster they fit perfectly.

    May I ask why you switched out your original fat springbars for the shoulderless bars?

    Thanks! The original Seiko's & all of the Seiko Divers basically come with Shoulderless (Fat Bars). On the new Turtles, they are easily removed because of the drilled lugs (love them!). Isofranes aren't made for "Fats" the difference is the 1.78mm barrel (vs 2.5mm Fat), but also have the thicker 1.1mm thick tip for the larger holes. They didn't stick out of the lugs as the Turtles have thick lugs, so no problem at all. I switched outa the ISO and its mounted currently on the Endmill.

    I understand the new Turtles don't have a signed crown. Is anyone else disappointed by this? I know it's only a superfluous detail, but a watch with a signed crown makes it a "full package" for me. I hoped the new Turtles would get that treatment. Seiko probably wanted to keep the new watch similar to the old, which didn't have a signed crown. Oh well.

    A bit yes as well as with the X on the dial, on the other hand am so pleased with the rest... Great reissue.
