    Anybody tried the Dagaz blue chapter for turtle? I wonder how good of a color match it is to the blue dial?

    Nice job!

    Did you have any problems replacing the bezel? Was it difficult?
    I ask, bcz I heard the bezel on the Turtle does not come off / go on like the one on the others -- like the SKX.

    Re: New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    I'm looking to replace the crystal on my SRP777 to a domed sapphire and replacing the crown with a signed crown. I was thinking of doing it myself but would have no way of pressure testing it afterward. Would pressure testing it be a good idea? Anyone do there mods on there own and not pressure testing it and it ended up being waterproof?

    Re: New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    As long as you replace/grease gaskets and make sure none of them are damaged during install then pressure testing is mostly moot. If you're just going to swim/shower with it then you're probably good to go. If on the other hand you're planning to dive with the watch then pressure testing is a must. You can pick up pressure testers on Ebay for around $100 that will test to 10bar/100m but the more professional grade machines are quite a bit more coin.

    I'm planning on picking up one of the Fleabay numbers for xmas I think.

    Re: New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    It was definitely more difficult that an SKX - to the point that when removing the original, I was concerned a bit about damaging something. But it did come off using the standard thin bladed knife approach and a small hammer to tap it home, working it around the circumference. All was fine. Going back on with the new one was very tight as well, although I tend to use a slightly thicker gasket when I do a mod, just because I like the tighter action of the bezel that this produces. I had to put it in a wood-faced bench vise to get it to go, being careful to distribute the load on the bezel edge so I didn't deform it or involve the domed crystal - all without the new insert in place. A little sketchy, but I was willing to take a little risk. Now that I know it can be done, I wouldn't hesitate to do it again but would be very careful. I also cant say how much the difficulty of the re-installation was due to the new, aftermarket bezel and its exact fit and/or the gasket.

    Great looking watches people! The call of the turtle is too loud to ignore any longer. I want to use a thick looking bezel insert but the reveal is scary looking in this photo....
    What crystal would be closest to flush with the surface of the insert? See photo below for example of what I want to achieve. It is a dagaz super dome with matching insert on a skx007.
    Thanks and keep modding those turtles!

    Re: New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    Mine is pretty flush although the stock insert hasn't got the same curve that the dagaz superdome skx one has (don't think he has a superdome kit for turtle yet). It's still close enough because the edge of the crystal goes right up to the bezel. Its a crytal times double dome crystal, dr seikostain bezel and stock insert.
