In a short time 4 variants splashed in: a black (SRP777), a gilt (SRP775) , a blue (SRP773) plus a pepsi (SRP779) version (read more here). Down the line, some editions were added. By way of example, the PADI version plus the green version. The watch scene embraced the return with the missing turtle, i really decided to dedicate a sequence with it. Plus an illustration:AncestorThe big ancestor may be the Seiko 6309. More specifically, reference number 6309-7040 or 6309-7049. It replaced the 6105 series in 1976. It turned out produced for longer than Decade (from 1976 until 1988) coupled with a almost identical friend (6306-7000, difference: hacking movement and Kanji wheel). The Seiko 6309 was definitely a success long ago.Ancestor on the newer turtle: Seiko 6309-7049 on a newer Isofrane strapTurtle EggsFast forward to 2016. Seiko chose to bring back the Turtle. A number of new turtles were born out of your mother 6309 (is really a side-by-side comparison in the 6309 and also the new SRP777). The two main variants, a Suwa and also a non-Suwa dial. Just like other vintage Seikos it shows whether or not this was made in the Seiko Suwa factory in Japan. The Suwa-dial was adopted between approximately 1976 and 1980 panerai 359 . Although the main continues to be same, there were some changes involved.Vintage 'Turtles': Seiko 6309-7049 and 6306-7001Some differences: Seiko 6309 VS Seiko SRP777Seiko 6309 seriesSeiko SRP77713mm thick14mm thick Semi-hard rubber/plastic strapSoft silicon rubber strapLollipop seconds hand with lollipop on headLollipop seconds hand with lollipop on tail150m water resistance200m water resistance (ISO 6425 compliant) Normal lugsDrilled lugsSeiko 6309 movement: 17 jewel automatic workhorse.

The same as with numerous other famous replica watches it's according to typical properties with the watch. In this instance you may say the case of the Seiko 'Turtle' looks rather like a turtle shell. It's also a dive watch. For me like a visual minded person the nickname is a fairly hook to not forget reference numbers a whole lot better. Whether you as it or otherwise, the nickname does place a supplementary layer together with everything. I find myself then it is a doubly interesting watch.An authentic toolwatch (PADI edition, reference breitling replica SRPA21K1 on a custom strap)Comfortable Tool WatchAlthough the turtle is a pretty big watch, I've never heard anyone complaining with regards to the comfort. This is a smart cushion-shaped case and cleverly designed to sit comfortable around the wrist. watches With 22mm lugs it's really a watch with many different possibilities regarding straps.The turtle is often a true tool watch from the very start until now. Because it is so well built and inexpensive there are a variety of people that actually go on it for the dive. In essence, the structure is subsidiary within this watch, but let's consider a few nice elements of design / details.Design breakdownCaseStarting using one of probably the most remarkable parts: the way it is. The cushion shaped case has lots of forms of finishing into it. Each defines part: circular brushing over the case, rolex submariner polished sides and straight brushing involved back. The sharp line separates the very best through the side. It is a good side-effect. It causes the watch to check less massive. The oversized screw down crown sits recessed to the case as an alternative to using crown guards. The mix on this along with the 4 o'clock position does provide maximum comfort - relatively speaking in the arena of dive replica watches.BezelOptimal operation with the bezel is guaranteed through the masculine grip. Both rows of 'sharp teeth' play nicely together with the light and are especially interesting from diagonal viewpoints. The insert is slightly tapered on the dial, providing better reference to the markers within the dial.Seiko SRP775 with gilt accentsDialDepth is established through the outer minute track as well as the raised hour markers loaded with a great deal of Lumibrite. For me the hour markers undoubtedly are a bit shiny so i deeply love this aspect on the ancestor (6309 series) a little more as those markers are definitely more matte. The trapezoid shaped markers at 12, 6 and 9 can be a true trademark of Seiko.Typography is established nicely and the dial isn't too full of it. The day-date window will a very good when it comes to contrast and it is a superb counterpart too the rest of the big markers. In summary: hands are very distinctive, accurate and straightforward to read. Overall, an extraordinary and legible face.No faux patinaNowadays just about every brand launches re-issues. More often than not with creme colored lume, also known as 'faux patina'. This can be placed on create vintage looks. Would you discover that the newer Seiko turtle series is a re-issue with no design choice?Seiko Turtle Photo SectionLove with the Seiko Turtle: a huge fan crowdTo study the adoration for this watch I made a decision to permit the newest and vintage 'turtle' owners send in their pictures and wrist shots.
