Like the Nemo on the Blue rubber strap- The JDM model has gotten hard to come by and many are advertised as such but close inspection of the pics and scrutiny of the wording of the ad result in the actual watch being SRPC95- K- Z- B- H- everyfuckingthing but "J"- It's a goddam turtle freakin' jungle out there!

I have two, SRP777 and SRPE03 King Turtle and really like them, they're my favorite Seiko dive watch until I manage to pick up the new Captain Willard. They're a very comfortable wear for me on my 7" wrist. I hit the 4r36 accuracy jackpot with the King Turtle which runs at +.5/spd while worn daily and rested dial down overnight.

After the yobokies bezel swap.

It’s cool that Yobokies has parts for these to be modified.
That is a spectacularly well-matched mod... just the perfect touch with such a cool dial, capped off with the perfect BOR bracelet. Seriously well done :Thumbsup:

I've never owned one but just placed an order for a Save the Ocean model, now coming to and end as the line is getting refresh of some models (I work occasionally for a Seiko dealer). I'm not a big fan of the Turtles. I'll wear it for a while and see if owning one changes my mind.

I've got two recent 4r36 Seikos and am getting similar results. I wonder if they've programmed the assembly robots with some new A.I.?
