    This is the first time Ive worn a Turtle for any length of time to be honest. I bought a blue one briefly but only as a birthday present for a friend..
    Super comfortable with the cushion case - no sharp corners. And DLC really suits this watch I think.
    Interesting to see all the many different Turtles coming out right now - some really cool ones and some absolute stinkers, Seiko just doing their thing as usual ! And some are starting to command a premium - grey Zimbe is now up at the 2k nzd level - ouch..

    This just arrived and after two hours on the wrist it already feels like an old friend. About the nicest thing I can say about a watch!
    Nice work Jakem it's I real nice bit of kit IMO. I wasn't 100% sure until I got mine on the wrist but all the component parts work well together I think.

    Got a domed sapphire on the way for my little SNK807. I polished off the bead blasting last weekend - looks nice in shiny stainless steel (although you can see that Seiko don't do their own polishing before the blasting is applied). Never fitted a crystal before so hope all goes well - if it does, I've got 2 Seikos and an Orient that are going to get new lids So, that's a US$60 watch that usually sports a US$75 strap, with a US$35 crystal and the polishing tool cost me $90!

    couldn't quite justify the cost of the watchco version so went homage

    Yup,

    That is what I was searching for... to educate 'people' who might be trying to do the same sort of thing

    Full, originality, is massively (i.e everything) important sometimes... when nothing but that USD600 unusable rubber strap will suffice lol

    Whacky how it was (A) fitted x-ways & (B) how it's a 300 vs. 320 display cover

    All good, as you were, just wanted someone (not me) to be clear.

    Yes the new crystal is a lot more shallow than the original. The watch maker fitted it cross ways. I was expecting it to be long ways however I think I prefer it cross ways. Easier to read the dial and Ive seen some with what looks like the original crystal mounted crossways.
    At least I think the one on the right is genuine...
