Couldn’t resist! I have most of the main sequence Turtle LE’s and I was impressed with how well the navy blue accents in the bezel and strap go with the orange sunburst. Apologies as the actual sun was not being cooperative in getting a good shot of the sunburst orange dial.

I have to confess that I love a good orange dial in the summer time to keep things fun and lighthearted.

Edit: here we go

Ditto! And think of how easy the dial will be to read under water!

Exactly my main thought process behind this purchase. When I dive under raindrops at least I’ll be able to easily tell the time. :lol:

I've been waiting for one of these I couldn't live without- this is it.

One of the best reissues, it only makes sense they get fun with the colors and this one is fantastic.

Love the orange dial but I have to disagree on the bezel. Never liked two tone bezels.

My turlle copy with orange dial and black bezel.
