    Re: NEW Seiko SRPA21 PADI Turtle

    Can someone please confirm or post pic of the hour markers? As in if the hour indices are chrome accented or not? I think back when I read the original PADI announcement, this was supposed to be one of the minor differences between
    the 'regular' turtles and the PADI version. I almost thought I saw a macro shot online a while back where it confirmed that but I can't find it anymore.

    Thanks.

    Tried to zoom in best I could. They are chrome accented but it's subtle.

    Totally agree with this. I was about to get the isofrane until I came across the borealis rubber strap. Bang for bucks! No regrets.

    Purchased from the UK. Got the blue box, no "movt japan" on the dail. So if you feel like you missed out on the blue box, you got the movt japan text. Great watch.

    Agree - who cares - does anyone keep their watches in the original box? I would have no room if I kept all of my watches in the original box.

    Boxes go into a larger box and kept in storage in the basement.

    Nice watch. It's high on my radar for a weekend wearer.

    Got mine from DePaula's as well.

    Slight chapter ring alignment issue just like on my 775. :(
    Perhaps an upgrade to double dome sapphire is a good excuse for getting it corrected.

    The hand-winding felt/sounded off though compared to the 775. Maybe it needs to break in?

    Switched to a navy color nato strap. Looks great and I think I prefer this to the metal bracelet.
