A little history, Seiko 6306-7001 – the original Turtle
This popular range of dive watch is known as the “Turtle” because of it’s smooth rounded “turtle shell” cushion like case design. Initially released in 1976, the original Turtle (Seiko 6306 & 6309) was is production from 1976 until 1988. Luckily for us – Seiko appreciated the potential popularity of the model and brought it back with a new 24 jewel Calibre 4R36 movement.

What should you pay for a pre-owned Turtle
With their soft cushion shaped case these watches also featured a recessed crown at the 4 o’clock position and day / date indicators. The vintage 6306-7001 have increased significantly in value recently. A good clean, working, all original 6306 variant will sell for between £900 and £1,200. A nice example of a modern pre-owned Save the Ocean SRPD21 can be bought for under £240. One of the most desirable models from the current range is the Seiko SRPC44 Gold Turtle – sold here.
HOMAGE to the Turtle by Steeldive
Customers who admire the general aesthetics of the Turtle dive watch may also like the Captain Willard homage watch by Steeldive. Not a fake – but a respectful and affordable tribute to a 1970’s classic diver’s watch.
More mechanical classic dive watches from Citizen
Visitors browsing this collection of Seiko dive watches no doubt respect the mechanical movement featured in the Turtle. With this in mind we should bring attention to the Citizen Automatic diver watches encompassed within the Promaster range. These Citizen Promaster Automatic diver watches are designed to similarly high standard (ISO 6425) as the Seiko Prospex. For many purists it’s these mechanical, self winding watches from the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s that are still the most desirable.
