Turtle Attack!

Just in from Watches88 out of KL:

The new Seiko SRP779K1, the reissue of the 6309. It's got the newer 4R36 movement that you don't have to shake like a meth addict abusing his child! Hardlex, none of that crappy sapphire! Everything aligns! No "flyswatter" here, either:

Nice caseback:

Wears nice, too, like Carl the Commie says, more like an 007:

The strap is great, too--unlike the very stiff rubber you find on the cheaper Seiko divers, this one feels like a combination of rubber and silicone. Good action on the Pepsi bezel, too. Usual light-your-cigarette-off-it lume as well.

Seiko's gonna sell these by the boatload!

As much as I want to like it, I feel a slight stir but limp. I know it's a great watch though.

I too am on the fence with this new remake. But that doesn't mean I am not glad that they brought it back, for a new generation to enjoy.

Good comparison article.

And info on sizing the bracelet if you're still able to snag one.
All sold out except for the Bay.
