Seiko PADI Turtle

Seiko PADI Turtle

You know the watch. Just purchased it from SaoGage and it arrived in 48 hours.


This was an impulse purchase but it is not going anywhere. Ryan has better photos of it in the sales post but I can say this is very comfortable on the wrist. I am not sure at this point if I will change the very well made bracelet for a mesh or rubber strap but for now it stays as purchased.

Nice purchase, I Like it. I'm also a "biased unashamed" Seiko Fanboy.

Is that like putting a Lincoln and a Taurus in a truck overnight and discovering 3 -T-birds extra in the morning. :mrgreen:

I know where you live Chris. If you find your turtle missing it will be in my koi pond living a sedate life in a Japanese garden. :lol:

By the way, how is that turtle on the wrist?

Good for you, Koi. Don't see you buying many or at least not posting them up. Love that dial!

It's just a cool revival of an already cool watch. They're supremely wearable and "fun," it's the ultimate affordable diver as far as I'm concerned.
