Price??? LOL!!! Where the heck can you find one in the US? I live in the Tampa area. We just had a new Seiko store (yes the WHOLE store) built with a giant Seiko sign out front. The only watches they have are cheap battery powered quartz. I would love to try on one of these "turtles " on. I think they look cool. The good news is there are a few GS's here.

Sweet piece jkchua.

Question for those who've acquired one of these models...Does the caseback list what country the watch was cased in? The pics I've seen online don't seem to show it.

Oh, I thought if it has the "J" behind the model # it's the Japan-made model.
The J literally meaning the watch was "made" in Japan is pretty much a myth/misconception.

They are just labelled as such due to where/how/who they are going to be sold (or something?). all lower-ended Seikos (like the skx007) are supposedly manufactured outside Japan.

the K's and J's are made in the same factories, they are simply given the K or J dial at the appropriate time in the process (is what i assume)

just finished modding my old 6309-7040. Still needs a proper bezel insert and likely a new crystal because this one is a bit scratched.

They are likely all assembled in the same place, from parts sourced from various Seiko or other factories in Asia. Country of origin labeling is based on the import requirements of the country they are intended to be sold in. Not all countries have requirements on watches; some countries are linked together via trade agreements, so they have common import\export requirements. Also some countries have the same requirements on certain categories of products. This allows Seiko to make versions of the same watch for different clusters of countries, rather than specific versions for each country.

In the USA, for example, imported watches need to have the country in which the movement was assembled clearly marked where consumers can see it, such as on the face or casebook (can't be inside). "Assembled" is defined as a substantial final improvement, meaning the movement can be partially assembled in one country, then completed in another, and labeled "made in" the second country. But it also means the movement can't be almost completely assembled in a one country, and then superficially modified in another country, and label "Made in" that second country.

Watches not imported into the USA don't have this requirement.

Thanks to all for sharing.

For all of you in the Philippines that already have the new SRP777s, who did you purchase yours from?

Did any purchase through the seller "The Top Watch"? If so, please let us know how the transaction went.

All the best!

I'm game. Here are a couple of the new ones ;)

I purchased mine from a well known trader and watch store owner. I haven't heard of the top watch before. Do they have a website?
