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

    Wow! First I've seen of this. I'm definitely going to get in line.
    Funny, I've been a Seiko collector for many years- and have never heard anyone call this a "turtle". On the Seiko/Citizen Watch forum, it was always just the "6309" (even thought the movement was used in other watches).

    Anyone here have technical details on the movement in this watch?

    I don't care what it says in .0001 font on the dial that only i would choose to look at, i just prefer my calendar to be something different than the usual English/Spanish, which is what i'm 100% expecting (which makes sense because there's a legitmately sizeable spanish speaking population in the US =).

    in fact the only one i've not gotten, either grey market OR amazon, that was NOT a English+Euro variant is my SNZG15J, which was arabic. everything else i have is a Euro variant. my only roman numeral mov't was purchased as a standalone mov't for a mod....

    Is Sears an authorized dealer of Seiko watches? Are they just ordering them through Seiko USA?

    Do you guys think these will ever get down to 007 prices? or at least what the price should average out to once the initial demand is met?
