This is a homage to the watch Charlie Sheen wore in Apocalypse Now. The originals were bought by the American soldiers during the Vietnam war, because they were solid, dependable watches, could take a beating & were good value for money. The original was black and this homage comes in both black & the army green which is a stunner. At 42,5mm it's slightly by smaller than the King Turtle's and fit's great on the wrist. Once again, Sapphire Crystal and a very high quality automatic movement, make this an excellent diver & one with a great heritage. I for one couldn't resist it.
This King Turtle Manta Ray Dark version on the blue silicon rubber strap should have got 5 stars. It gets 4 because of the date magnifier being quite badly off centre, to the point that it catches the eye visually. Come on Seiko this is not what I expect to see from a company that I otherwise hold in high regard. Apart from that, the watch has a Sapphire Crystal and Ceramic Bezel, good spec automatic movement. Another great value diver for sure.
The Turtle's are some of the most comfortable watches in the Prospex series, on the wrist. This is the light blue Manta Ray version on bracelet. Ceramic Bezel & Sapphire Crystal means that there is a lot of watch here for the money. Only bugbear for me is the date magnifier is slightly out of position. Doesn't alter the fact that this is another great value for money diver from Seiko
I don't know how Seiko does it for the price. The quality of this watch is superb. From the fitment of the strap to the bezel in the case and the Monster cut outs between the bezel & the case, everything lines up perfectly. The blue bezel & the red accents on the minute hand & 12 O'clock position put this watch into a league of it's own.
As a collector of Seiko watches , this little beauty does not disapoint in any way - in fact build and finish of this timepiece even when viewed under strong magnification is flawless. Needless to say I am very happy with my new watch.
Another stunning watch. Solar powered with a Liquid Crystal day, date, alarm function, in addition to the analogue hands for hours, minutes & seconds. Looks beautiful on the wrist with the black tuna can & rubber strap highlighting the blue, red Pepsi Bezel. Value for money again from Seiko
I've always been a fan of the Prospex line, but Seiko have knocked it out of the park with this one. Stunning watch. Sapphire Crystal, Ceramic Bezel and a good Automatic Movement, features that are found on much more expensive watches. At this price it's a no brainer, an absolute bargain.
A classic design, superbly crafted watch. The solar ability is a fantastic feature to have. The rubber strap proportions fits seamlessly in with the main body. The best feature is whenever you look at the watch, it leaves a big smile on your face and a warm feeling inside you.
This watch is very classy and can be used casually or in a more dressy way. It is very accurate and has great loom like Seiko typically do. The grey face has a nice sunburst effect and takes on different shades in different lights which really nice. I also think the offset crown is a nice tough. It's a pull out crown but feels very solid. Highly recommended.
A nice, easy-wearing watch that withstands my day-to-day use with minimal wear-and-tear.
An eye-catching timepiece that is easy to read, day or night.
So good, in fact, that I have just bought myself another - the SUMO PROSPEX PADI - as a second daily wearer.
I intend alternating them as the mood takes me.
This watch was bought for my son, who simply loves it!
Still treated like the treasure it is, he enjoys wearing it and showing people who ask him about it, and is still looking as good as the day he got it.
A worthwhile purchase indeed.
Very pleased with the ease of my purchase and looking at getting my wife one in the near future
I admit, wearing a watch is a personal and unique experience, but try the street series Tunas, it will not disappoint. Get a replacement leather strap and you will have a versatile, 'go anywhere' watch. I'm very happy with my purchase.
I am very happy with the watch, is elegant, comfortable and strong, and look very nice in my wrist with any outfit.
I never take it off!!
One of the best watch I have been.
I bought this watch for my wife. She loves it and it looks lovely on her arm. It always catches the eye when she moves. It's a remarkably accurate watch with good reserve. Excellent value.
My first Seiko, amazing quality for the price, has the look and feel of a more expensive watch, love the weight and solid feel, works for the office as well as a weekend casual watch. Will be purchasing another Seiko as soon as I can! Excellent service and quick delivery.
