Seiko Turtle Range

Seiko has a long association with manufacturing automatic divers watches dating back to 1965, they have recently looked back on their achievements in design from the past and are now reproducing reissues of some of their most classic models. The new turtle series, sold under the Prospex range is an upgraded reissue of their famous 6309 model of the 70s & 80s , made legendary by Martin Sheen in the film Apocalypse Now of 1979. This fabulous new upgraded series of watches now feature a slightly larger case, subtle dial and hand differences and the latest 4r36 calibre automatic movement which both hacks and manually winds, a significant improvement over the originals! The new model numbers for this range are, SRP773, blue dial, blue bezel, stainless bracelet, SRP775, black dial, black bezel, gold indices, stainless bracelet, SRP777, black dial, black bezel, rubber strap, and the SRP779, black dial, pepsi bezel, rubber strap. We highly recommend them!
