i would do it if i could still get the black and white...
Can someone from Massdrop please confirm that the SRPA81 is indeed a Japanese built model?
Wonder if the movement is better than the last Seiko Autos I bought here? One was a Scuba. both lost two minutes in a week. Seemed to lack calibration at Seiko.

I have the SRPA81J, aka the Darth Scallop, and it gains around 2 seconds a day, which is great for a 4r36. Then again, I have an SRP621 with a 4r36 which loses a minute a week, luck of the draw I guess.

Thanks! Luck of the draw. Both my Scuba and other auto had identical movements and both lost 2 minutes. Found it a bit unnerving. Use to my Omega SeaMaster I have had for 16 years, no issues, but wanted to try Seiko again for a style change. No money to buy another Omega.
creation or sky are selling this for 375 with clear indication its a J model, and free shipping worldwide and also, 1 year international warranty. so i am not sure the value of this drop .
Is the shroud plastic or metal?

It's ceramic, a really nice matte black ceramic which contrasts nicely with the glossy black bezel. There's a video on YooToob where a chap has at it with a file and it doesn't leave a mark.
Any one know Is this drop made in Japan? Thank you

The SRP81 pic shows “Japan” between the 6 and 7 markers. That would indicate Japan made. However, without full model numbers, we won’t know unless Massdrop tells us. My one experience with a “K” was awful, so I only buy “J” models.
Why should I buy this over the $337.12 version on Ebay for the SRPA81K1? Better warranty? Better box? I already own and like SRP639K1 and wouldn't mind the bigger model in black.

Can you tell if this drop is for a K or a J?
browncore
Nope! I might be willing to pay a few extra bucks for J though.
I hate those zig-zag rubber straps that Seiko puts on divers. I tried an expensive Marine Master on in a store with that strap, and it turned it into a cheap G-Shock feeling thing.

The bracelet would be O.K.
Green one!?
Last time I missed and now must to track anytime!
Yup it's the standard shitty box....

Sigh...that sucks then. What's the point of selling a watch in a fake box
JDM_Fnatic
I own a ton of Seiko's, and I have only ever gotten the standard American or standard Japanese box. I have the PADI Pepsi turtle, and that has no special box. Similarly, I have a couple of Presage models, and they have simply come in the Japanese standard box. Stateside, the only cool boxes I ever see are for Astron watches or special editions. Frankly, I would rather see the money spent on the watch, not some gift box, unless of course, it is a gift.
is the box going to be the standard shitty one? or the original padi box
