Seiko Drops US Exclusive Trio of Prospex Turtles For Oceanic Society

Seiko fans in the US are getting an exclusive trio of special editions Prospex dive watches marking the brand’s sponsorship of ocean conservation non-profit, Oceanic Society.

The organisation aims to study and protect sea turtles worldwide, so the use of Seiko’s fan-favorite “turtle” case is fitting.

Intricately patterned dials inspired by sea turtle shells are presented in three eye-catching shades of brown, turquoise and blue.

The watches, which are water resistant to 200m, highlight the Oceanic Society’s State of the World’s Sea Turtles (SWOT) program, a collaborative global effort of thousands of people and numerous agencies set on conserving the world’s seven species of sea turtles and their habitats.

Each watch features a black ceramic unidirectional timing bezel, day/date calendar presented in both English and Kanji, anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass and an automatic 4R36 movement with 41 hours of power reserve.

Each watch is supplied with a stainless steel bracelet and colour-matched silicone strap while a portion of the proceeds will go towards the SWOT program.

The special edition Prospex trio drops in November via Seiko and its retailers in the US, with each priced $750 USD.

Elsewhere in watches, Kross Studios drops the perfect watch winder for fans of the Dark Side.
