    I will say this for Dr Stain's bezels - in conjunction with a Crystal Times Double Dome the bezel height is right on the money!!

    Got pics?

    What's the quality like? How about the AR depth/clarity??

    TIA

    Mark, if you are referring to the "New Hope" crystal, then the quality is fantastic. I have had 4+ Crystaltimes sapphires and prefer the Seikostain one, mainly because it has greater clarity and has a better looking hue of blue AR (lighter hue and less intense, looks more elegant and expensive). It was also a lot easier to install compared to the CT sapphires, in terms of alignment. The only downside is that it is single-domed, not double-domed, so it has distortion when viewed from extreme angles.

    Seikostain sapphire on left, CT sapphire on right. This photo does not accurately depict the AR differences. The CT sapphire is A LOT more intense in person, which to me looks a bit cheap.

    Another question...

    I'm looking at gilt MM300 hands.

    -Does anyone have experience with how the Yobokies and Dagaz stack up to one another?
    -How do they compare to stock Seiko lume?
    -Are they the same product, just from different vendors?

    I have no experience with the Yobokies one, but I have the Dagaz ones. They both look identical, only difference is probably Lume color. All I know is that the Dagaz hands do not match the turtle dials at all...too white. And the Lume is weaker and a different color. I wouldn't personally wouldn't recommend these hands.

    Re: New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    thinking of what i want to do when i get this 773 modded...

    if i can't get certain white day/date discs, instead i'll donor black discs from a Seiko 5 I have. I really think both black and white discs look good but I'll find white discs boring if I can't get something interesting like Numerals or Kanji (i've owned neither in white).

    for the second hand i want to keep it stock-style but try a different color. i'll have to see what's available or if i can get one customized. I might go with the one i have in my tiny parts stash (which is mostly just the original parts pulled from previous mods). =) i'm keeping the stock h/m hands, unless something interesting turns up.

    definitely a low dome sapphire. think i know which one i want.

    coin bezel is still a maybe. hope someone puts out 773-matching (or Pepsi) ceramic or lumed insert or something...

    Re: New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    Hey Guys...Thanks for the replies.

    Man of Kent...Are you saying those are also Dagaz? ...or are the Yobokies??

    If they are Dagaz...could you guys have different production runs? How old (how long ago ordered), are each set of hands??

    Current Dagaz listing says 95% C1 and 5% C3 (for brightness).
