Looks like you might have gotten some of the last in-stock Pepsi turtles Chis & Oscar! thumbsup.gif



Try hochuanwatch, they still show the pepsi in stock!
he has them Chris,but Maylasia could take time to arrive,,,,Chrono24 has all of them,but price upon request(looks like someone is trying to capitalize on the demand) ...my order with watches88 was refunded this morning with a "sorry,we ran out of stock,more in Jan.16'...so I got a hold of Wayne (wayneswatches) and was able to pick up the Seiko SRP775K1(black & gold) ...reminds me of WUS in the early years when everything new and popular sold out in minutes,like when the Orange Monster 1st came out!dog smile.gif




Agreed Oscar...huge demand for the new Turtles with stock selling off pretty fast. Watches88 did have the all-blue version on bracelet for me in-stock, so that one is on the way, but no pepsi (Watches88 gets 5 stars from me for very responsive and communicative customer service...they are even throwing in some free stuff with my order since they didn't have the pepsi in stock). Like you said, Chrono24 has the bulk of stock, but they are gouging the worst on price at close to $450 unless you want to play the auction game on ebay and see where final bidding ends up.

Greg- I have not heard of machtwatch (http://www.machtwatch.co.id), but agree with you...nice website. Have no idea if they are a realiable source. I have no doubt that waiting until mid to late January will yield much more supply and better pricing, but for those that have to have one NOW....subtlelaugh.gif

I googled their name and checked out their facebook page and they seem legit. There is a seiko velatura Ive been chasing for awhile and they have it...may try it...Also I'll wait for the pepsi turtle....I just buy a few on my list in the mean time dog smile.gif

No problem Chris! Just making sure everyone gets one who wants one ThumbsUp02.gif

BTW Oscar, watches88 is out of Malaysia too, I ordered mine with EMS, they sent it FedEx International Priority and I had it in three days.

 FedEx Tracking information is complete crap though, said it made two stops in Malaysia, went to Taiwan, next to Oakland CA, then back to Taiwan, back to Oakland CA, then on to Portland OR, then all the way back to Japan, back to Portland OR then Gresham OR and finally delivered to me. Somehow I can't imagine FedEx shipping it all over everywhere in three days and still delivering it on time but if it takes the gross national product of a small country in Jet fuel to deliver my watch who am I to argue?

Agreed on the shipping tracking Chris! bamby.gif Hilarious!

Like I said, Watches88 gets huge Kudos from me for excellent communication regarding their stock (including providing a paypal refund almost instantly after communicating they ran out of stock on the pepsi).

These new Turtles from Seiko definitely look great...awesome to have a modern representative of the incredible 6309 on our wrists!

Superb gentleman !
Looks like you guys all have fun to order the new Turtle.
The watch goes away like hotcakes.

I need one or two of the new Turtle too.

I will wait. A reliable German shop has the Turtle in stock soon. For an really great price.


Looking forward to all your pics of the new Turtle !

I was reading about that on WUS and I think most are ok. The people who have ordered from the far east are telling the suppliers to check for bezel problems before they send them. I'll let you know in a week how mine comes in..You would think with such a large company like Seiko there wouldn't be these problems.

I think in the past there were such problems at Seiko less frequently.
