    Where was this beauty purchased? Sear? Amazon?

    Seiko Watch Time Zone here in SoCal. They don't have a website and they don't ship orders. Here's their Yelp review:

    These are the best turtle photos I have seen to date. No one commented on the Japan
    Movement printed on the dial. Is this the SRP777J model?

    That's probably a parallel import from Taiwan/China/HongKong market released stock. As there are more chinese immigrants to Australia, it'll be much feasible to do so for parallel importers to do so for better sales than bringing in K makes which often comes with either Spanish+English or Roman+English day wheels, or J makes that comes with Arabic+English day wheels.

    The Australian version with Mandarin+English day wheel is highly possible a J make.
    A piece of my favorite timepiece, is like a dish of local delicacies. It's not about how good it may look, or how branded in may came from popular stalls or restaurants. It's always the materials and concoction that produces the best keep!

    That shop located in a little island, that you have to swim there to take a look, and swim back to the main land where you lives???
    Wow... i can only imagine only divers watches are sold over there... dress watches couldn't live with such challenge to make buyers swim back to their main land.

    Thanks!

    I don't think these are the J models. It's got "Movement Japan" on the caseback. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think all J & JDM models either has "Japan A" or "Made In Japan" on the case back. I remember my SKX007J had "Japan A" on the back. My SBDX001 MM300 has "Japan A" and my SBDX011 Emperor Tuna has "Made In Japan".

    None of the 773 and 777 that were shown yet here on Germany's biggest watch board carry the "Mov't Japan" imprint on the dial. Some expamples:
