    Here you go. Ordered one myself last night. They have a 20% off code at the top of the page. Hope that works for you.

    Thanks, code's only giving me 10% off. Getting taxed as well. Not a bad price though since I think you get free returns if its mis-aligned.

    From this angle, chapter ring looks ok, bezel insert seems a little off, like a hair. Maybe take another pic straight on?

    Hard to tell at this angle too, but the chapter does look a hair off.

    Both of your PADI's look good otherwise, congrats!

    The PADI Turtle has design DNA from the 6139-6002 chronograph made in the Seventies with the blue sunburst dial and red second and chrono hands. Look for the value of the PADI Turtle in the Japanese watch collector's market to increase as time passes.

    Only if you have one that is 'Misaligned', which by the looks of things you'll be just fine.

    Hard to say from that angle. Can you take a shot from directly on top and a few others?

    Chapter ring alignment issues with modern Seiko diver watches is part of the "joy" of being a Seiko watch collector. Even Marinemaster 300m diver watches that retail for over $2k can have these issues. All part of the fun of being a Seiko watch fan. Watchmaker Spencer Klein says in this YouTube video (at 5:15) that the chapter ring has a little button that fits into a hole at 12 o'clock, and it's not a tight fit, so the chapter ring can shift.

    Seiko watch jockeys like Mr. Klein, or Northeast Watch Works, can get things straightened out for you.
