I just changed date in my just bought Turtle PADI Pepsi watch at 11 pm. Then I realised my blunder. I checked it by changing time and later date again. It’s working normally when I changed date by rotating hour minutes hands. My question is if Watch is okay or I visit the Seiko service centre? What would be the signs of a damage to the movement otherwise that I can see? Please help. Regards

Ignore it unless the watch starts misbehaving & chalk it up to experience.

Not a big deal my friend. I have caught myself going the same a few times, with no disaster to mankind. If the date change is still normal, then do worry about a thing. Even if it is a bit off from setting at midnight, it is just a gear misaligned with the date mechanism, and not the movement itself. Just enjoy your watch.

I’ve managed to do this with an ETA movement without any problems. If you don’t see that the watch is acting oddly then you are probably ok. My guess is that more make this mistake than don’t.

Thank you all for clearing the issue for me. I’m highly obliged. This is my first serious Seiko watch and I’m really impressed with the quality at this price indeed.

The other Seiko I’ve is a Grand Seiko HAQ SBGV019 Limited Edition watch. That too is a class unto itself.

Base watch for Project # 5 just arrived! Still waiting for my other parts. Can't wait to start this project! :-!

Save the Blurtle, do not modify her. The Blue Turtle, or any other Turtle for that matter, needs no modification what so ever! There are plenty of strap options to keep the Turtle interesting. Leave the modifications to the SKX line, not the Turtles!!!

I like modifying my Turtles - All Of Them! although i do like the simplicity of the 773 - no biggie, i'll just get another 773 if i want mine in stock. my upcoming projects (#4 & #5) are all Turtle mods :-d

For those with blue Crafter Blue straps for your turtle is it actually blue or black? I ordered a blue one, it came in and I took a picture and sent it in telling them they shipped black instead. They sent me another one and it looks exactly the same. Have they messed up twice or am I color blind? I have no issues distinguishing the two in anyone else pictures. If this is blue it's extremely dark navy. I'm so confused.

Pic is a WIP

Just a quick word of warning for anyone considering a double dome from Crystaltimes, pic related is a CT072 with blue AR. It is more a mirror than a glass. The reflection is absurd and I'd totally send it back if I could. Its kind of bizarre that nobody's mentioned it yet from all the people in this forum with the same crystal mod.

I recommend you grab a sapphire flat crystal, honestly.
