Seiko Prospex – the new “Land Tortoise”

As huge Seiko dive watch fans it is great to see the introduction of a new range of LAND based Seiko Prospex watches paying homage to a classic divers watch. The new Prospex Land lineup have been given the nickname of “Land Turtle” and “Seiko Tortoise” by some watch fans. That’s because they feature the classic soft “turtle shell” case style of the iconic Seiko Turtle divers watch.

NEW Seiko SRPG13K1 Land Prospex with desert sand dial and compass rose bezel

Seiko have presented the new Prospex Tortoise in four very distinct stlyes. Starting with a military themed desert sand option (Seiko SRPG13K1) to a deep and moody navy blue model (Seiko SRPG15K1). The final two in the line up are, we are ChronoDivers believe, going to be the most popular. The Seiko SRPG18K1 is presented in a VERY STYLISH rose gold coloured case with dark brown bezel, face and calfskin watch strap. Last, but by no means least is the Seiko SRPG17K1 featuring a black bezel and dial and highly contrasting lumibrite hands and indexes

Bomb Proof movement and 200m water resistancy

All four models house the bomb proof Seiko 4R35 automatic movement providing a very useful 41 hours power reserve. In other words, take it off to go to sleep and it will still be ticking the next evening. The 4R35 features 23 jewels and a convenient second hand STOP action for accurate time setting.
