Seiko Prospex Turtle SRPB11 Blue Lagoon Limited Edition

As a preview of what will be showed at Baselworld 2017, here are the Seiko Prospex Turtle SRPB11 and Samurai SRPB09 Blue Lagoon Limited Editions.

Seiko Prospex Turtle SRPB11 Blue Lagoon

This has to be said, the Seiko Prospex Turtle has been one of the most talked watches of 2016, especially in its PADI special edition, which has been named in almost all watch magazines as one of 2016 highlights –including us. And for good reasons. This watch has everything of a cool piece: affordable, vintage-inspired, stamped with the Prospex logo, super good looking, efficient as a dive watch, and fitted with an unbreakable automatic movement. The standard editions were already well received by collectors but the PADI was simply a blast, with its blue dial and pepsi bezel.

Based on this watch is a new limited edition, the Seiko Prospex Turtle SRPB11 Blue Lagoon, this time with a bi-color rotatable bezel, mixing deep blue and light turquoise blue. Indexes and hands are all white and silver and the dial retain the sub-ray pattern that plays a lot with the ambient light. For the rest, we have that same 45mm “turtle” case and steel bracelet and inside the in-house calibre 4R36 with day and date feature.

Seiko Prospex Samurai SRPB09 Blue Lagoon

Apart from this vintage-oriented offer, Seiko has a second watch in the collection, which can be seen as its modern sister, the “Samurai”. Based on the same concept – same base movement, same vocation, same water resistance, same price range – it mainly differs by its modern, angular shape. Don’t get me wrong though, even if the “Turtle” is a stunner, the Seiko Prospex Samurai SRPB09 Blue Lagoon is also a properly good looking piece.

Seiko Prospex Samurai SRPB09 Blue Lagoon Limited Edition

This Seiko Prospex Samurai SRPB09 Blue Lagoon is based on the same codes, meaning a blue dial with sun-ray patter, some white and silver indexes and hands and a bi-color bezel, mixing deep blue and turquoise blue (for the first 15 minutes of the diver scale). The steel case, entirely brushed for a more toolish aspect, is here measuring 43.8mm in diameter and the watch features the calibre 4R35, the date only version of this movement. As a Prospex watch, this Samurai SRPB09 Blue Lagoon has all the attributes of a good diver, meaning a luminous dial, some large hands, a suitable rotatable bezel and a 200 water resistance.
