    Re: New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    Haha yea, I did a price inquiry on coin edge bezels with both of them too. I ended up going with Harold again because the price difference covered a additional blue bezel insert, which is what I was planning to get anyway.

    Ridwan has serious skills though. He machines them on order, so I feel like his product will be top quality and perfect fit every time.

    I look at his shrouds and start to have dirty thoughts of my seldom worn skx.

    Seiko has seemingly without rationale decided to make their SRP77X OEM Crystal Gaskets unavailable from the spare parts desk for owners. Weird since they make these by the thousands every month.

    So if you get a new AR CrystalTimes see if they can include a gasket. Otherwise CousinsUK has them in stock going forward. Glad I squirreled a few away when the getting was good.

    Seiko can be odd like that.

    I went with the Ridwan bezel due to it being brushed instead of polished. And yes, it looks nicer in my opinion. I haven't received it yet, but can't wait to get it!!

    I emailed Brett at Labanda and he said they should be able to get them from Seiko HK - but not til after xmas. Anyone in Oz - I suggest you stockpile a few of these when they become available again...

    Re: New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    This mod is coming together pretty well. Thanks to undertheradar for his sale in f425 and prompt shipment this one kind of came together in a rush. I will probably put a sapphire into it and perhaps a coin edge bezel. We'll see...
