    Re: NEW Seiko SRPA21 PADI Turtle

    I'm looking for my first diver and this one really stands out; was actually hoping to find one with a green dial, but can't find anything in my price range.

    Question: Is there any particular science to ensuring you get the "Japan Movement" version of this watch? I see a bunch of options on eBay for around $350, but I assume none of these have the verbiage on the face or back. Hoping someone here can help me out. Thanks in advance!

    All Seikos have Japanese made movements. The only difference is where they are assembled. A 'J' after the model number (so, SRP773J1) would signify a watch assembled in Japan, where a 'K' (in example, SRP773K1) is assembled somewhere else (Malaysia, Singapore or China. In the case of the Turtles, since they are Prospex, I would guess probably Malaysia or Singapore assembly). It looks like the 'J' models say "Made in Japan" on the bottom of the dial. You will pay a premium for a 'J' model. As to whether there's any actual differences between a 'J' model and a 'K' model are open for debate.

    This has been debated, asked and answered, countless times. Seiko themselves have said there are no differences at all in parts or finishing of the watches.
