I'm thinking of buying a blue turtle and one of the lowest prices says "Possible manufacurer chapter ring and bezel misalignment within the normal margin of error" in the description. Seller is trying to stop returns but I don't think Seiko states what "normal margin of error" is.

Got me thinking though that maybe I could score a used Turtle with slight bezel misalignment for a good price. Don't think it would bother me that much if I could find one cheap enough.
Unfortunately, it’s not a load of crap. The seller is just being upfront, forthcoming and honest.

While Seiko doesn’t state or publish any tolerances, they don’t perform warranty work on these. So that is them saying that it’s within spec or normal margin of error. We just don’t know how that’s determined. Do they measure? Or just eyeball it?

Good to know. Having a misaligned flange is one my worries when buying online. Probably should check what it costs to get one repaired by a local watchmaker and factor this into the total cost.

Another turtle arrived today... Seiko SRPC91 'Save the Ocean'. Essentially identical to my SRP777 and SRP779, but lovely blue gradient color and black crown and bezel sides. Definitely a keeper, though I really like all of the new SRP turtles. Great looking, great performing, and relatively inexpensive.
