Available for sale is a Seiko SRPC23K1, the discontinued sunburst grey dial Turtle. I bought this new in April 2020 from Creation Watches. This sale includes boxes and papers (warranty card is stamped and dated) and the original un-sized and unworn bracelet - I removed it upon receipt and replaced it with an Uncle Seiko waffle strap (which is also for sale).

The dial is absolutely beautiful and I love the watch, but I'm selling as I've decided I prefer watches with 39-40mm cases.

The bezel, insert and crystal are scratch-free. The only significant blemish I could find on the brushed upper side of the case is shown in pic #7. It's a small scuff near the edge of the case across from the 55 minute mark. The brushing makes it difficult to see scratches, however, so there may be additional insignificant blemishes. In fact, I thought the upper side was free of any dings until I reviewed the pictures. There are fine scratches on the polished underside. Don't hesitate to contact me if you want any other pics or further details.

Given Seiko's well know QC issues, this watch is in pretty good shape. The bezel/chapter ring alignment appears to be juuuust a hair off at 6:00 as shown in pic #1.

Specs from Seiko:

Case width: 45mm
Case thickness: 13.4mm
Lug width: 22mm
Crystal: Hardlex
Lume: LumiBrite
Water resistance: 200m
Movement: 4R36 automatic

Time keeping:
I found that the watch gained a few seconds/day when stored with 9:00 up and lost a few per day while worn. It worked out to -1.5 spd the last time I tracked it, which was during the summer. Your mileage may vary obviously, depending on how often you wear it, what you do while wearing it, etc.

$350 shipped, first class with insurance to CONUS. If you don't have any feedback here or elsewhere, we'll need to discuss payment options.

Also for sale:

Uncle Seiko Waffle strap v2 - 22mm
I put this on immediately after receiving the Turtle. So, it's been worn but is in terrific condition. Comes with fat spring bars compatible with Seiko divers. Retails on Uncle Seiko's site for $39. Price is $30 or $25 if you buy with the watch.

Uncle Seiko Tropic strap - 22mm
Tried to put this on my Casio Duro, but I couldn't get it mounted. So, it's essentially brand new, other than the spring bars being inserted. Comes with the spring bars. Retails on Uncle Seiko's site for $39. Price is $30 or $25 if you buy with the watch.

I only have two transactions on WUS, both strap purchases. While I realize it may not hold much credence here, I do have hundreds of perfect feedback on ebay under username fukuda. Mostly sales and purchases of collectibles, camera gear and a few watches.

Don't hesitate to message me if you have any questions.
