Please do another one of these :)
Beware - trying to remove links on the bracelet to fit is a nightmare. The pins pop and you can't put it back together again. I own a lot of watches and have never had issues with shortening the bracelet until now. Subbing for another bracelet or a leather band.

It’s a old-school pin and collar system. Can be quite tricky, even if you have the correct tools. And, if you lose the tiny collar, or don’t push it in tight enough, the brace will fall off your wrist. Easy fix at a Watch jeweller though

Yes! I figured it out eventually though. YouTube helped!
Drop ended January 2nd, and I just received my SRP775 on January 5th. Very fast shipping!
The first thing I looked at was the chapter ring, and it seems like it could be misaligned by a gnat's dick. I even used the magnifier widget on my phone to verify. It's close enough that I can't see it with my naked eye. It's close enough to be a non-issue for me, but other Massdrop members may feel differently.
The watch is HEAVY... and gorgeous! The pictures do not do the 775 justice. The gold highlights give the watch a sophistication that none of the other variants have. The bracelet is chunky and not cheap feeling, like the one on an SKX007, for example. Yes there are better bracelets, but for a $20 premium over the rubber strapped models. this is well worth it.
This was my first Massdrop purchase, and to say that I am over the moon would be an understatement.
Thank you Massdrop! And thank you community for both encouraging me to purchase this, and for warning me of the potential pitfalls.

Does anybody know where it is shipped from?
Currently on creation for $280 and eBay for $272. Makes much more sense for people who live in places with tax like me.
I love that they shot them with bezels moved from the initial position so you don't see the misalignment (seems that these days Seiko cannot produce a single watch without these issues, and I am a "fanboy", owning over 50 of the older models).

No issues seems to be the exception these days on these models. And I am not talking about misaligned bezels or chapter rings which can be corrected, but stretched indices upon application. I saw people that no matter how they moved the chapter ring is still misalignment.
I really want one but don't want to pay double at local AD where I can inspect before buy. Strange enough lots of lowered priced Seiko 5 have no misalignments. Probably different production lines.

Just got this Tue first 2018 watch! Got lucky it lines up ! Really didn’t know of alinement problem it’s my first new Seiko ! I have collected for many years but old Seikos ! I like it so getting black version next .
Bought the 773J1 (blue dial) from CreationWatches for $270. It was in my hand two days later.
Really? $300 bucks? $259? I really love you guys at Massdrop, but , some of the models are even cheaper on Amazon not to talk about other sources...
It's kinda disappointing. Especially as the 777 (black dial) isn't active. Sorry guys, I just don't get this drop and I've waited for it for a while now.
Very annoying.
DHL site showed “out for delivery“ for 4 day’s after being stuck in Frankfurt for 9 days.
I asked DHL and the response -
“Thank you for contacting DHL Parcel and DHL eCommerce regarding the delivery of your shipment.
The latest status of your shipment is: Handed over to Korea Post for final delivery.
Kindly contact Korea Post to Inquire the latest status of your shipment and further delivery instructions by using the following information below:”
Last time I had to check Korea Post was about to ship the stuff back to Germany saying that the address was incomplete, when it wasn’t.
It‘s annoying that each time I order something it’s up to me to chase it up.
Massdrop - perhaps you need a new shopping agent. Someone who can actually get stuff to the destination more than half the time!
I personally will never purchase a watch from Massdrop again.
Bezel is misaligned, the watch loses around 4 minutes a day and no warranty to speak of.
Extremely disappointing.

I'm feeling the same way. Bought a Glycine Double-Twelve that can't keep time and stops abruptly the second I take it off my wrist. Even WITH a warranty it's been nothing but runaround between Massdrop and Fixmywatch.com. What a headache,
Got the watch and very disappointed with dial and bazle indentation. Even warranty card missing
Any one got the delivery of the turtle? is there any issue with dial allignment??
ArudiKiran
Just received mine, the rehaut and bezel insert are both out of alignment. Very displeased.

Unfortunately, that is as much a Seiko trademark as the S on the crown. Of the 4 Seikos I've owned in my life, not a damn one of them had a properly aligned bezel and rehaut. Still loved them, especially my Sumos, but come on, Seiko, it can't be that hard.
How do I get this thing to display in English? Whenever I try and set it it always switches to another language.

Guess it fixed it self. Works great!

Wait for the date change to be complete i.e after 3am. Then change the day to the English version. Don't try to change it between 10pm to 3am, as the day change is in progress.
Extremely unhappy with the performance of my SRP775 with the Cal. 4R36.
I've tested the watch over the course of a week (a different position each day) and I've lost about ~5/6 minutes per day, with the worst position, "Dial Up", losing about 7 minutes.

Wow you are a toxic individual.
Or, the alternative is you use the Massdrop platform to warn other users of the issues you had.
smileymiwo
Toxic to whiners. Not warners.
How would anyone justify paying an extra $30 for pretty much the same watch offered in your drop. My guess is those won't sell.

The (J )"made in Japan" model tends to command a premium over the Malaysian or Hong Kong (K) versions.

Whats 30$ on top of 200$+ really though?
Just ordered a Deep Blue Nato 300 with Orange sunburst dial, and with discount and shipping under $237. You get super lume, sapphire crystal, SS solid end links, and that also included buying it on the Silicone Strap, because you only save $3 if you don't buy the SS bracelet separately. AND, I put 2 more black Hydro55 silicone straps in there, because with sale and code they are less than $12 each . . . .

Insane value

I think I will do the same...I was contemplating it..Thanks for the push
F150
I know some people think they are rip offs of Seikos and hate them, but honestly, I just don't make enough money to not appreciate their value . . . Fourth DB and one AB, and I love them all ;-)
It would be great to see a MD of DB!
Pricing isnt any lower than the better online resellers. Sorry massdrop, but I'll pass... but so close.
lucasszy
I think its a good deal for me in Canada, it looks like they're 400$ plus on amazon.ca
Wow, my 773 is worth over $730... 😎
Any UK buyers had tracking though yet? I see some people have had theirs but nothing for me yet... Only joined the from on 1st Oct though... Pepsi bezel on black rubber..

Cheers @Samhagen seems we got movement today. Woo!
We should receive communication once the watch has shipped.
If only it was the Seiko Samurai I'd be all over it!!
Question for massdrop. Some pics show made in Japan on the dial under the 6 o'clock mark. Some show "movmt Japan"
$259 can't be the made in Japan version can it? Please clarify.

Hilarious how it still gets marked up here

The (J )"made in Japan" model tends to command a premium over the Malaysian or Hong Kong (K) versions. Note the movements can be made in japan on the (K) but the watch could be assembled elsewhere.
My SRP777K1 just arrived! This watch is sweet, even nicer than I expected. Thanks Massdrop. Managed to make it through Canada Customs without any duty as well. :)

oh my.. This is my biggest worry when i order online. I cancelled this drop b/c I saw something else I liked on creation :P I feel you though
Hi all, we were able to secure more units of 773J1 & 777J1 and have updated the drop accordingly.
Interesting-- during the last drop, the 775 was one of the first to sell out, this time it's the last to go.
I understand that this is a good deal for this watch, but I get confused by the Seiko options. What makes a turtle better than an SKX007?
nodeal
Aside from the cushion case shape and other dial design elements, a major difference is the movement upgraded from the 7S26 to 4R36 with hacking and hand winding ability.
Really want a 777J1 but they’re sold out :(
i just cancelled the 777j1, as well. good luck!
Heads up - just cancelled my 777J1.

Yup, I've seen mods from Yobokies, Artifice Horoworks and more Luckily(or not) the SRP777J1 is sold out now so my wallet is saved I might end up buying a modded one with a sapphire crystal and a ceramic bezel insert later on anyways
Drunkbag
If you're "clumsy with your wrists" as you posted earlier (lol), you may want to rethink ceramic bezels. I'm not particularly hard on watches but have somehow managed to chip the ceramic inserts on two of them, with less than 6-12 months of ownership on either. I still cannot figure out how it's happened but, in my limited experience, ceramic appears to be prone to chipping and cracking. In the meantime, all of my watches with steel bezel inserts have held up to considerably more abuse and still look just fine. YMMV.
As for the sapphire vs. mineral crystal debate, there are pros and cons of each. The sapphire certainly looks very nice and is much more scratch-proof than mineral, but the mineral crystals are more resistant to shock/direct hits and sapphire has been known to shatter easier. Anyway, at the end of the day it comes down to what you like the look of and what makes you happy. Cheers!
Will the other "sold out" finish options be restocked before the drop ends?
Will the black version 777 be coming back to this drop? It's currently sold oit.
