    Ordered mine on Saturday from Sears, and did the 1.99 shipping. It arrived today. This watch is awesome. Can someone please tell me how I can purchase the bracelet? The strap is absolutely awesome, buy I have a rule in the winter bracelets and summer anything other then metal.

    Thanks Nick

    I wonder if in 20 years or so, assuming WUS will still be here, that people will resurrect these Turtle threads wanting to know how these watches sold for so little money.

    I got that email too. I think it had to do with me shipping to my work address.
    I went on live chat and they gave me the number to call: 1-888-396-5299. Just needed to verify my identity.
    That was yesterday-Monday

    15-20 minutes after i posted this, i was getting too hungry and so i was about to go out, and I saw the mailman at the box down the pathway between the condos. I just went back inside; a minute later it was here. was still hungry, so i left it inside and went for lunch, lol.

    it's awesome. definitely a notch bigger than the SKX. feels heavier. something i don't think was ever mentioned (i didn't realize at least), the second hand's 'gold' is more of a brushed finish, rather than the smooth/shiny surface of the minute and hour hands. it's not the same crisp brushing like on a GS or MM, but it's a detail worth noting. I took the bracelet off immediately (was going to resize it later -- have done that now) and it slipped off pretty easily. I found later (after i took a bunch of pics of other straps) it was more difficult to get back ON the watch; there's no recesses on the endlink to manipulate the tips of the springbar. November 2015 serial.

    it's a little misaligned =\ but not horribly.

    will post more later but for now:

    Bummer that the hands are misaligned but at least the chapter ring is too. I wish Seiko could get the qc hammered out on these two issues. I went to the Seiko store in NJ today but they didn't have any in stock. I was hoping to be able to pick a good one on person. They did have a blue Sumo X with alignment issues though.

    Received mine today also and can confirm that this watch is awesome. Strap code has already said they will be coming out with a specific bracelet for the SRP777 series watches. The rubber band is ok but i will get a proper bracelet as soon as they are released.

    Got mine from the Seiko store in NJ, love it! The bracelet is a pain in the ass to resize like all pin and collar set ups, but at least it's high quality with solid end links.
