Please excuse my ignorance but can someone tell me what NAFT is in reference to Seiko divers watches?

The NAFT refers to the Seiko reference SRPXXX cushion case reissue divers.

As in “the Seiko SRP777 is Not A Fucking Turtle since it was never in history called a turtle until some moron on a watch forum decided to name the reissue a ‘turtle’ diver“.

Ahhh. Thank you. So my new SRPC49K shouldn't be referred to as "Darth Turtle" as it is on many forums?

I'm pretty sure the "cushion"-cased 6309s were referred to as "Turtle" in the PI long before the reissue came out.

It’s Not A Fucking Turtle, it’s a wristwatch.

Moonwatch is legit, since it went to the moon.

There is a Pepsi color bezel on the GMT.

The other names are childish and stupid.

Not sure what you're wanting me to say? I think of the Turtle Seiko watches? I came to them via the Turtle name.

Call them what you want Image Turtle is what 99% of folks call those Watches on forums. Who cares what others may think if you do...
Honestly the shape is reminiscent of a turtle shape and suits it. If someone here came up with the name, it would not be such a big deal Image it’s a watch, call it what you want and move on Image

When did you become so sensitive? If I ignored your posts I wouldn’t know to tease you about the Monta Monday we will have tomorrow!

I don’t believe I coined the term “NAFT” but I did say it’s Not A Fucking Turtle.

Anyway, I enjoy being contrary so :htfu:
