Anyone want to post their turtle here, be it new, old, extinct, they seem tobe too many threads on it. Just a thought.
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.Anybody know what is the price for these turtles ? Thanks !

That's not a JDM model. That's why. I bet it has the English/Arabic day wheel just like the 007J model.Japan-made model listed on Taiwan's site (though oddly not on Seiko Japan's yet!)
???? SEIKO TAIWAN --- ???????????? Spring Drive ???
Nope. You can find a photo of the caseback here: Pinoy Watch Fan: Seiko SRP777 Black "Turtle" ReissueQuestion 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.
The J literally meaning the watch was "made" in Japan is pretty much a myth/misconception.Oh, I thought if it has the "J" behind the model # it's the Japan-made model.
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.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)
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?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!
