    New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    Polish provisions arrived in post!

    Dr SeikoStain

    Polished Steel finish

    Cold Steel finish


    The admonition that he has on his eBay listing refers to his own bezels which are a Thor's hammer harder than stock. Fortunately there's sufficient overhang that you can wedge a screwdriver in there carefully.



    They sit lower and the bezel insert mates up better with a domed crystal.

    Action is NOT very smooth - will require tuning.



    EDIT: also of note is the fact that Dr SeikoStain may have set the record for baggie inclusion. I count 8 baggies and one envelope for just one bezel so far!

    Re: New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    was there no 'brushed edition'? =)

    i do like how there's a few making coin edge now...

    if i get an SRP773 in the next couple months, i also might get a coin edge bezel with a new insert, that would work on either that SRP773 or my 775. I could get it on one watch, enjoy that look for a while, maybe swap it at a later point. though if they are as hard to take off/put on the swapping may not happen too often.

    i don't particularly care what bezel i end up with, they are all cool, (though i do prefer smaller/more coinier edges and a brushed finish) i'll probably go with what's there when i'm able to buy.

    but my insert ideas are the red triangle/vintage sub in ceramic, or stock-style Pepsi (because i don't think anyone makes ceramic Pepsi inserts). I think both combos work on both watches, but both combos are more optimized toward a watch: the vintage to the 775 and the pepsi to the 773. But the pepsi on the 775 I've seen work, and it looks cool, and the vintage sub on the 773 would still fit pretty well....

    Re: New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    TBH - I would have preferred the Ridwan bezel but despite pissing away inordinate amounts of money on other stuff - $90 was too rich for my blood...

    Anyway - top tip number 2 for bezel removal on the Turtle.

    If you mask off the end of your screwdriver and the lug tip - you can wedge a goodly sized screwdriver under the bezel overhang and get plenty of leverage.

    See my arrow for where you want to put the screwdriver tip. I only masked the lug because I'm crap at following my own advice - however - I don't see any marks on the bezel and if I could - they'd be quite hard to spot in any case.

    Re: New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    Hmm I rather like that cold steel edition.

    Be careful with these turtle lugs and their circular brushing grain. I made a light scratch against the grain and in my arrogance, figured I could brush it out easily with a steady hand.

    It's been a never ending rabbit hole of removing the bezel and rebrushing ever since lol.

    I may well see you down that same rabbit hole... you will be able to spot the right hole it by the dremel cord.
