My Turtle seems to be righting itself.

Now down to +90 seconds per week.

I can live with this.  I do 'work' the watch pretty hard - it almost never leaves my wrist - power tools, hammers etc - so I reckon that even if I decide to get it regulated, it will get rattled and bashed soon enough and the speed will be out again.




Any good watch-makers in Cape Town?
My Seiko SRP773 Turtle runs consistently fast - 3 minutes a week.

New arrival.
Sold my faithful Tag Heuer Aquaracer that I had for 7 years to be able to afford this.

The build quality and smoothness of the movement is simply astounding.

Magnificent watch Heine!

Remarkably capable all-rounder with superb fit and finish.
All things considered, excellent value for money as well.
Enjoy in good health!  :2thumbs:

Bought this for my HR monitor watch without thinking it through

Free to good home. Postage is on you....
