I would like an aluminum Coke bezel insert for the new Turtle. Red from 0 to 20 (or 15), then black back to 0. Can't find one anywhere.

Tried yobokies, CT, others, ebay. Surely the mod market for the SRP is still not that soft? I think I read the new 5 Sport is the same in some dimensions (bezel, etc.) as the SRP so maybe things will start to take off soon...

yea you'd have to buy the entire bezel + insert, which is more expensive of course. let alone the weird issue of finding such a specific part...... does Rob @ Monsterwatches still do that for people?

If you aren't familiar with the mod community, it's generaly a VERY easy part to find if you own a 6309, 7002, SKX. Tons of them cheaply and affordably, like here:

I ordered a "Dawn Grey" (orange 20/grey 40) from them recently for my ur-Turtle. I just didn't know the mod market was still so far behind for the SRPs; I just bought one. I use the bezel timer quite a lot so having a sharp color contrast on it at some point is quite helpful in judging time remaining; much, much easier to use than a 5-minute printed number or the triangular zerio hash mark.

It looks like what I read re: Seiko 5 Sport using the SRP bezel size was incorrect, which explains the dearth of aftermarket parts so far:
