Why We Love it

Seiko’s dive watches are among the best — and the most affordable, relative to their specs — in watchmaking. 

From the rare-as-hen's-teeth 6159, to the film-famous 6105 and 6309 models, to the economy workhorse SKX007, Japanese watchmakers perfected incredibly well-made tool watches decades ago — and at prices that make the most diehard Swiss watch fans bristle with jealousy.

This particular Seiko diver from the Prospex family is a Reference SRPE05, commonly referred to as the ‘King Turtle.’ Housed in a substantial 45mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal, a black ceramic, and a unidirectional dive bezel. It features an awesome luminous olive green dial with 3D-pressed grid pattern and a matching ‘big arrow/syringe’ handset, a day/date window at 300, a ribbed olive green rubber diving strap with signed stainless steel hardware, and Seiko's workhorse Calibre 4R36 automatic-winding movementwithin.

In excellent condition and shipping with its factory goodies, the King Turtle might just be the best value in the industry in larger, modern dive watches. But don’t take our word for it…

Try it on for yourself!

Brand Story

+
For over 140 years, Seiko has been cranking out innovative and impeccably engineered watches at every price point, from entry-level Seiko 5s to world-class haute horlogerie pieces under the Grand Seiko brand. Underpinning the company’s efforts has been the mass production of reliable and accurate movements paired with a wide array of case and dial configurations.
Founded in 1881 by clockmaker and businessman Kintarō Hattori in Tokyo, Japan as “K. Hattori,” Seiko began importing Western timepieces and selling them in the local market. In 1892, Hattori changed the name of the firm to Seikosha (“house of exquisite workmanship”), which was further altered to “Seiko” in 1924. Following the Second World War, during which Seiko produced watches for the Japanese military, the company began its streak of innovations based upon affordable, in-house movements and Japanese savoir faire. These included myriad dive watches such as the famed 6105 and the fan-favorite 6139 chronograph.

Later, in 1969, Seiko would go on to produce the Astron, the world’s first quartz watch. This technological innovation was followed by the Seiko Kinetic in the 1980s, which married quartz accuracy with automatic, self-powering functionality. Today, Seiko’s product offerings are vast, including dress watches, dive watches, chronographs and much more, all of which are powered by in-house movements comprising different types of technology.

Despite a move toward luxury positioning and pricing in the brand’s modern offerings, vintage Seiko classics can still be had at incredibly reasonable prices today, making them a favorite entry point into the vintage watch world for myriad collectors. From their availability in post exchanges on military bases around the world to their fame from films such as Apocalypse Now to their presence at six Olympic Games, Seiko watches are deeply ingrained in the consciousness of the contemporary collector.
