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

    I just received my 777 from Sears via UPS, ordered Friday. The good news is it has a perfectly aligned chapter ring, the bad news is it came with a dent, which looks like some kind of tool mark, right at the bezel pip area exactly at 12:00. Pretty nasty mark, totally unacceptable, and I didn't even notice it at first as I was dialed in on the chapter ring issue.

    Beck to Sears it goes. Already talked to them and they are sending a UPS label, and I'll get a full refund, but it looks like I'll have to start all over again with another order from scratch. I'm not so sure I'm going to order another one of these early watches sight unseen again through the web.

    I'll get one for sure, but I want to eyeball it myself to make sure its right next time.

    Really with all the misaligned dials that may be better. I may have one coming from Sears but I'm not sure if it is or not.

    Thats too bad about that dent. Can you post a pic of it? I have a small indentation on the triangle that the lume pip sits in on my 775 but as it does not really detract from the watch and everything else is spot on I am keeping it. I consider it a bit of character.

    I do know that you can blame this issue on Seiko USA as Sears does not touch the watch when you order it. It comes directly from Seiko USA in NJ and not a Sears warehouse(The box will have a label that says SCD or SOD and a NJ mailing address. That is Seiko USA.

    Some good news for you. When I was in JC Penney's last night getting some gloves before the eff ton of snow that is hitting my state on Friday, I went over to the watch counter and the lady working the counter saw my SKXA35 and asked me if I like Seiko divers. I said yes and she states this store was sent a new Seiko diver that morning with the other watches and pulls it out. It is a Seiko SRP777, so it seems that the SRP Turtles are making their way to JC Penney stores. Last week they showed up on JCP.com and when you clicked on them, you got the product info and in the right corner was a button to click to find it in a store. That and the fact it does not say Online only led me to think that this is a watch that the physical stores will carry at some time in the near future. So here is your chance to see one up close and play with them. JCP always has some discounts. The lady said that not all stores will have them right away as they are still in short supply.

    Good luck with your watch quest.

    Mine also has that indentation, but no where near enough for me to send it back.

    Seriously, the watch should have NO dent anywhere in the bezel. It should be flat as a pancake all the way around.

    Personally, I think a big ugly dent in the bezel is a whole lot worse than a chapter ring being off a little. Don't get me wrong, I just feel the parts of the watch should be installed straight, and there should not be a dent in the watch staring me in the face every time I look at it.

    A used watch with WABI, that's another thing and that's OK, but a brand new $450 retail watch? No way, Seiko's getting it back.
