    Mine is from DePaulas too. I was hoping they would check that! If they did, we probably wouldn't have our right now!

    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.

    I have the same complaints! I'm thinking I shouldn't have gotten rid of my Monster!

    It's really interesting to hear someone say Seiko could learn from Steinhart on bezel action. I can't wait to get mine now.

    The bezel action on mine is silky smooth. For $350 it really is very smooth with 120 distinct clicks.

    It's all opinion but the two Steinhart divers I own have a very distinct click when turning the bezel. The PADI turtle feels very different. Just not my preference.

    I have a question.. Does the PADI fit a 7" wrist. Can some of you show an image of the watch on 7" wrist or less than 7"

    My wrist is around 7" I think. It's very comfortable on my wrist. The 45mm worried me as my comfort zone is 38-42, but the cushion case really is an incredible design. It doesn't wear anywhere close to 45mm.

    ceebee -- You show that you have a Turtle re-issue in your sig? Nothing different about the PADI. It's still the same buddy.
    Should fit you better than any of your other watches. The 6309 & re-issue are the most comfortable of any watch I've owned. Flat 7" wrist here.

    Hi RD,

    Sorry everybody, please forgive my ignorance. I love my turtle re-issue and it fits like a glove. I was wondering why others were showing their reissue turtle when I was asking about the PADI. I did not realize the re-issue turtle was 45mm, I guess because it fit so well.
    That answers my question and a PADI it will be:)

    Thanks again,

    Chris

    I didn't even realize it was 45mm! It doesn't wear that big for my little wrist. I will have to say it fits me better on a rubber. I'm selling mine because I just can't get into the case shape. I love everything else about it. My main reason for buying it was that I'm a scuba diver and I was certified by PADI.
