Incoming! Banzai! Seiko!

Post by Panerai7 » Fri Jun 15, 2018 8:21 am

So I wanted to do something for the ocean. Looked at BP Ocean Commitment 3 and it's a too small for me since it's the same case as the creamsicle edition I've tried on before. Kept on googling and reading, and then I stumbled on this article and immediately ordered one for myself.

Very excited, it's on a truck for delivery at the moment but I will definitely post more pics when it lands on my wrist this afternoon :)
A pic from the article for now

Nice one, I would love to get that dial for a project... or maybe just the watch. :thumbsup:

I had no idea Seiko will contribute to the work of the Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center - very cool

Brice what's up with the finish on the minute hand? Looks like galvanized or partially corroded steel or something?

Definitely the best Turtle I've ever had on my wrist.
The dial is just stunning in person. The ocean waves reminiscent of PP Nautilus but in a random order just like the waves and d-blue style gradient dial is extremely well done contrasting beautiful coarse brushed hands that remind me of coarse brushing on the older Rolex lugs.
Just an outstanding overall package. Everything lines up, the crown is very smooth for a Seiko

Congrats, I like that one a lot. I’ve sworn off NAFT’s since they just don’t work for my wrist...but that one may make me rethink it.

What are your criteria for counting turtles? SRPXXX models only, or inclusive of originals? I've got a herd, and this one is tempting me too. :oops:

I only have the modern ones currently, but I would count the originals if I still had any.
