Glycine Combat Sub Review

Image
Because of this post I went on discount shop to buy the SRP775. Had considered this one for a while. It was in my cart and I pressed check out.... But then..... Decided while I was there to see if they had the SRPC23 since it's been #1 on my list for a while and I've been waiting to find one under 300 on the bay or somewhere else.
Wouldn't you know there was 1 on discount shop for $275! So I have an SRPC23J1 incoming ImageImageImage

It'll be my first turtle and I plan to wear the crap out of it!

Nice watch!!

I find it amusing how we make each other fall in love (with watches, not each other!) randomly on an ongoing basis. :D

Hi Yukon,

Is your bracelet the Strapcode Super Jubilee aka J-Louis? Or is it the Angus? It looks great and I'm thinking of picking the bracelet up for my incoming from Watchspree.

It's the Super Jubilee and I added a Seiko clasp.

Boooo! @Bbrou33 There is also this seller on ebay called worldwide-isetan with K versions for $250. I'm not familiar with them but they are showing 100% seller feedback over 166 transactions, however only 8 in the last year. Reviews mostly say fast shipping from Japan. They just added some Prospex models at killer prices, especially mini-turtles.

Thanks! Ended up going with these sellers. About the same price and more overall reviews. 8% ebay bucks too! So once again, hopefully, I have a SRPC23 coming in! This time K1 but that's ok with me

Cool! Pics when it arrives! I think it might even be the same seller but with a better price. They have all the same inventory I think. That's definitely a good price for the grey turtle. I'm surprised how low they have the PADI mini-turtle too. Thankfully I'm not too tempted for once.

Purchased for $1 (+$5 shipping). I grew up with Radioshack, doing all sorts of electronics projects. For me it symbolizes an era of hobbyists and DIY’ers.

LOVED Radio Shack when it was a place you could buy all kinds of electronic bits and pieces.

The first computer my family had was a Commodore 64. The first computer that didn't plug into the TV was a Tandy 1000EX with dual 3.5" floppy drives, MS-DOS 2.x and DeskMate. Wrote my first BASIC programs and custom .bat files on that thing. Loved it.

I used to buy protoboards, project boxes and components there to fuel countless electronics projects. Learned to solder joints before I was 10. Was a lot of fun building all kinds of circuits.
