    Well, after they already applied the prospex logo to the dial and even managed to put the reversed lollipop second hand of the SKX on that watch, they must have simply forgotten to deface the crown by assigning another prospex icon to the new turtle. I guess, it just slipped through somehow and I'm so thankful about it.

    I'd chock it up to different materials in all 3 parts (insert, chapter, and dial) all made to look 'dark blue'; they would all reflect a slightly different blue due to the way light will naturally hit them all differently at the same time. now if they were all made of plastic, or all made out of the same metal, the coloring would probably take to them a little more consistently...

    my opinion though, i'm not in manufacturing...

    Do you happens to know how that blue it's compared to the blue on The Sumo SBdC003? I love that shade of Royal blue very elegant , but at least in photos of the turtle it appears to be a lighter shade of blue, more like the Blue part of the SKX009 bezel of you know what I mean..I would love to get one but want to make sure wich shade it is.. Thanks!Name:  image.jpeg

    how was the markup? i figured buying in-store would be quick, but expensive... and the prices there are usually pretty much not 'street' prices as one might call it....

    Sorry sir, I haven't handled a blumo yet. I've seen them in shelves but never really bothered to check it out.

    Let's wait for blumo owners to answer your query ;)

    Will these be available in the UK? I've checked out various official Seiko sites all over the world and can't see them anywhere

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

    Just got my SRP773 from a friend who picked it up in Hong Kong for $365 USD. I am mightily impressed and haven't even worn it yet. Has the day in both English and Roman numerals, i.e. Monday is "I", Tuesday is "II" and so on until Saturday is a blue "VI" and Sunday is a red square. Whatever that design is, I love it! Lume is great, too. Bracelet is substantial but the clasp is a little less so. The diver extension took some wrangling to open.

    Will size it and give wrist shots tomorrow.

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.
    Nope. Not at all. It'd be great. But certainly not a disappointment for me.

    So, any end links fitted in a 6309 will they work in any SRP?.
    Would straight end links look nice? Any picture with them?
