Just picked up a blue dial turtle at the Seiko headquarters for $145. They had a one day clearance on some Seiko pieces. When I saw the matte blue dial, and blue bezel, it caught my eye. It's a divers watch, so there typically above the 40mm range. However, this one doesn't wear that big in my opinion. Maybe because my wrist size is 7 1/5 inches. I'm not a fan of big watches, my SS Submariner is my size limit. However, I decided to give this watch a try, and the price was right to take a shot at it.

BTW, Sarb prices went down on Amazon. I have the Sarb033, and it's a great watch. Quality, and simplicity for a good price.

Anyone wearing the "Baby Turtle?" Pictures, and your review on the watch would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Used to wear this watch until I switched over to my Citizen that I posted. It was my engagement present my Wife got me. Wore it daily for 12 years. I had the crystal replaced twice and even the hands. Super light and thin.

Anyone else here old enough to remember their commercial - My husband isn't around anymore but my Seiko is? Pretty funny.

I’m looking at the navy blue Crafter Blue strap for my Srp773. Does anyone have this strap on their Turtle? Does it go well with the Srp773? For $65.00, I think it’s pretty steep for a watch band. Thanks.

Went to the Seiko Boutique, and I must say, the Grand Seiko is gorgeous.

Looking at the SKX007J. Seems like a good, affordable watch.

I'd rock a vintage Seiko Bullhead chrono like this one. Oooh, that 70s goodness!

Seiko has some really good, quality pieces that fly under the rader. My Seiko pieces find more wrist time than my Submariner, and Datejust. I’m about to order a SKX007J, and SNZG15J from Long Island watch. For those of you watch enthusiasts, Seiko is a sleeper.

I should be getting my 7T62-0GM0 back from Seiko service this week.



Took it in to get the battery replaced at the local jeweler and got it back and none of the features would work.

That got me curious about the workings in the watch and found that you can purchase the 7T62 movement. So, I picked up a broke 7T62-0AM0 fairly cheap and going to buy a movement and R&R the watch.
