    Is this common for Seiko turtle watches - lugs not sharply finished

    Received my turtle the other day and noticed the inside edge of the lugs are slightly rounded outward rather then a sharp line. Can someone tell me if there's are the same ?

    Here is an exagerated shot to show what I mean



    This is a regular straight on photo

    How can you be sure? After a quick Google search it seems that they all do to some extent...Name:  SRPB01K1.jpg

    Because mine doesn't and that's what you asked. Maybe you should've just done a google search in the first place to get the answer you want? Lots of photos of Turtles out there.

    So you agree then that it's normal? Or are you saying your peice is the perfect example to which every other should look like ?

    I don't know if it's normal. Who knows what's normal with Seiko. If we're going off what's most common is normal then misaligned chapter rings are normal and and perfect ones are the lemons. I don't know if you're new to the brand but their QC is infamous.

    I've included a few pictures of my PADI for comparison.

    I'm not sure if it's just the angle of your pictures but the edges appear more rounded on your watch.

    If the watch looks OK on the wrist I wouldn't let it bother you.

    Probably just another case of sloppy QC standards at Seiko's production lines. Do you have a warranty? Maybe you could try your luck and return/swap it for another example?
