    Hate the name turtle but love the SRP 777. Wearing it today on Art's first weathered canvas exposed to NC's hot, sunny, humid summer weather





    Next to the Alpina
    Specs aren't everything...
    The 45mm Seiko wears smaller than the 44mm Alpiner due to its cushion case design and significant step design where the bezel size is much smaller than the case underneath. The short L2L also helps

    Encouraging to hear not a single negative review of the turtle. Even those bothered by the misalignment seem to be happy. Kudos to Seiko.

    Digging that Alpina GMT!! I have been wearing my 777 on a nato since receiving it. These turtles were made for natos.

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

    Thanks for the info. Maybe the US market got those, and the rest of us got the movement number. Did you get one in Germany, and if so what's the model number on the hang tag? If someone could check the hang tag on a US bought watch maybe we could come to a conclusion of sorts. By the way what's the second language on the Germany 777?

    Still waiting on my SRP775, which is promised to me for end of January. From what I've seen on boards here, the 775 has yet not been sent to customers at all. Maybe also the Pepsi-Turtle also is not out yet, only the 773 + 777 I remember being shown on forums here.
    I haven't seen any hang tags on user pictures here yet.

    That would be English, as you can see from these pictures. The user has set the date to German in the first pictures, but at picture no. 10, 11 you can see it set to English: SEIKO-Neuheit: Der Kult-diver turtle soll in 2016 neu aufgelegt werden.... - UhrForum - Seite 26

    You might get it on Tues or Wed. I ordered my SRP775 from Sears on 1/8/16 and got it on Tuesday 1/12/16. It was expected to arrive on Thurs 1/14/16 so it shipped quickly. It is coming from Seiko USA in NJ so you should see it quickly since you are in Penna.

    The US Government requires country of origin on everything sold in the USA. This is why the SKX173. SKXA35 and SKX175 have Malaysia on the case back, rotor and dial and the SKX007K and SKX009K have movement on the dial. That is the only thing that is different between the SKX009 and the SKX175 (both Pepsi diver SKX models)

    My SRP775 (That was bought from Sears and was shipped by Seiko USA) has Movt. Japan on the dial.

    Nope just the USA Market model which requires country of Origin for everything sold in the USA.

    I hope the 775 I ordered from Sears Friday ships that quickly!
