    New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    I'm wondering if anyone has looked into bezels and inserts that may work with the new SRP Turtles. We know dials & hands are interchangeable, no problem. We have a sapphire crystal option and various bracelet options. Are the bezels a direct replacement from the SKX007/9s? If not, will they accept the same inserts from a SKX007? Any rumors of a triple-grip in the works? I'll probably reach out to Harold and Jake and get their input, but wanted to see if anyone has already done so.

    No go on bezels, inserts, chapter rings. If you have a lathe, you can get an SKX bezel to fit, maybe even function, on the case- however, the insert (ID 31.5mm) won't clear the stock crystal (32mm), which has practically no bevel.

    Edit- of course if you use a 6309 crystal, it may work. Haven't gotten back to mine yet.

    Thanks for the info. It is really bad that bezel and bezel insert are not interchangeable with the SKX ones.

    I received word from Harold (Yobokies) that he is working on a bezel insert for the new SRP Turtles. I just installed a double dome sapphire on my SRP789 Coke Turtle and it looks amazing. Pics will follow shortly.

    Here's pics with the Crystal Times double dome sapphire (blue AR). VERY nice fit and very little distortion.

    Nice, that sapphire mod would be on my list.

    What I also want is a brushed metal chapter ring and a second hand with the lume dot on the side pointing to the seconds.
