    a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away

    Is it just me or the chrome accents around the indices really muted? In all the closeups I've seen, the chrome accents are barely visible unlike the Sumo/Tuna where the chrome accents really make the dial pop (and give it a $$$ look).

    JCP (probably had the best price with the 30% code) is now sold out. However, I've started seeing more US sellers stocking this up so gonna wait for a deal or coupon.

    Re: NEW Seiko SRPA21 PADI Turtle

    I received mine from DaPaula's today. It came in a white box, which I'm okay with as it'll go in the giant stack of watch boxes in the top of my closet and I'll never see it again.

    My chapter ring is badly misaligned.

    Overall the watch is amazing. I love the sunburst dial, red minute hand and applied markers. Despite being 45mm, it wears incredibly well. Very comfortable size. I also like that the second hand is polished metal on the tip as apposed to the white paint on the 009.

    It took three jewelers before I found someone who could resize the bracelet because of that collar system. Overall the bracelet is disappointing. Outside of the pain of sizing, it's rattles more than I'd like.

    The bezel is the only other disappointing part. It's difficult to turn and the click feels really cheap. See Steinhart for a good example of how a bezel should click.

    Despite those complaints I'm in love with this watch.

    Also I didn't realize it has drilled lugs. That's a very nice touch.

    Re: NEW Seiko SRPA21 PADI Turtle

    Received mine from DePaula's yesterday as well. Couldn't see any misalignments on the dial/bezel/chapter ring, and I looked carefully. Looks perfect to me. Will stop looking so I don't start seeing things :)

    The pin and collar bracelet was a pain to resize, took me almost an hour. I wonder if there are any dedicated tools specifically made for this out there (besides using a ball pen and the like).

    Really love the watch!! Something with the shape and the colors really came together beautifully here.

    Funny you should ask. Just posted about the dedicated Seiko S-926 bracelet sizing tool that has special bits for re-installing pins that use collars.

    Thanks, very helpful! Will probably get one with my next seiko, as the PADI is already sized. I firmly believe in using the right tool for any given job.
