    Nope, I'm trying, but my on-line sellar is flaking on me. So kinda bummed. His initial quote was very reasonable, maybe he's changed his mind.

    DePaulas (the AD where a few of us here have reserved them) is the one giving out that number.
    Can't really verify it though.

    Thanks for the tip on this AD. He said they had about 4 or 5 left when I called them Tuesday.

    Re: NEW Seiko SRPA21 PADI Turtle

    I just received my PADI SRPA21 watch, its been a long time since I have bought a new Seiko(my collection consists of vintage pieces) so its been an extra exciting experience for me. I preordered from CTG Watch a few months ago when they first opened the preorders. They shipped it out to me this week with Express shipping from Hong Kong and I received it today, the package still had its original sealed plastic around the outer box.

    My experience with CTG was overall really good. I noticed some people had issues with them in the past, so I thought I would put this out there to maybe calm the nerves of anyone else who has a preorder with them.

    So now with that out of the way, lets get onto the watch... first impressions were great, the watch really looks really good, feels nice and as a diver should... HOWEVER... My PADI SRPA21 clearly has a misaligned chapter ring.

    Very disappointing from Seiko. So I guess this issue isn't only occurring with the normal reissues, god forbid I wonder if the Zimbe has the same problem.

    Chapter ring looks good from here, no?

    check the 12 o'clock marker for the chapter ring against the 12 o'clock marker on the dial, this is where the misalignment is. the ring needs to be moved to the right to bring it back into line. If Seikos dial design didn't include that line down the center of the 12 o'clock marker, the misalignment could probably be ignored.

    Ay, yessir, see it now. 'Tis a shame, turtle mis-alignment syndrome has spread into the PADI's :(

    Didn't care as much for the Turtle as the GMT. I picked up one of the Sun065 today and tossed a blue strap on it. I'm liking it.

    Is this considered aligned? Cos it seems a bit misaligned.
