    That dial. The PADI works well on a NATO too.

    Re: NEW Seiko SRPA21 PADI Turtle

    Just put in my order at DePaula's. I was never a big fan of seiko bracelets (on their lower end models anyway).....what are yall going with? I saw few natos but I think the PADI would be too thick for a skinny nato? Isofrane would be killer but outta my 'strap' budget .....I have some used leather straps that I might pair mine for now and then look at options later. I just hope I luck out with the chapter ring issue (I'm not a perfectionist for a watch in this price range but would appreciate a little better QC from a established watch company like Seiko!).

    Is there any difference in the specs of the Padi vs the other turtles? Looks pretty great regardless.

    Outside of sizing issues, the bracelet is comfortable. Strapcode sells replacement bracelets that are good quality. I have one on my 009 and love it. It works well on a NATO (that's what I've had it on all day) as well as rubber and leather.

    I don't think there is any difference.

    I don't think there is any deference.

    Thanks Chad. If I ever pull the trigger on a turtle it's Padi all the way

    Order up a 22mm strap from Borealis, they are fantastic for the money.

    Why buy an Iso? Padi on Borealis rubber, $25.

    With the PADI version, you can dive deeper, stay longer and you'll use less air!
