Prospex PADI Turtle 200M Automatic Blue/Red Ref. SRPA21J1

Prospex for Seiko basically means "Professional Specification" that their timepieces in this category  are built with very high standards to be used by professionals. One of the most popular releases in recent years is probably the remake of the Seiko 6309 (circa 1976-1988) commonly known as the turtle. The original 6309 divers are pretty rare given its short 12 years production lifespan. Although there are many exmples in the market, there are less than a dozen that are original.

The Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) is the world’s leading scuba diver training organization. Both started out serving the diving industry in 1965, and to celebrate this special relationship, Seiko introduced the Prospex PADI Turtle 200M Automatic Blue/Red Ref. SRPA21J1.
It is no wonder the new Prospex Turtles are so popular among Seiko and dive watch collectors. With much request since we introduced Seiko JDMs, we decided to bring in the MADE IN JAPAN Turtles, denoted by the "J" in the reference number and the "MADE IN JAPAN" at 6 on the dial.

Prospex PADI Turtle 200M Automatic Blue/Red Ref. SRPA21J1

The Seiko Prospex PADI Turtle 200M Automatic Blue/Red Ref. SRPA21J1 was initally released in 2015. The overall look of the Turtle is one of a kind, quirky and unique given its unusual case silhouette. Powered by Seiko's automatic caliber, 4R36, operating at 21,600 BPH (3 Hertzs) with hacking and hand winding capabilities. It has 24 jewels with a power reserve of 40 hours.

The 200m water resistant stainless steel case measure 44.3mm case without the crown, but has a lug to lug length of only 47mm, and a height of about 13mm, with a lug width of 22mm. The short lugs to lugs length means this watch wraps around the wrist on all(small or big) wrist sizes like a glove making it extremely comfortable. The bezel is aluminum and has large printed markings on it. It rotates buttery smooth into 120 positions has little to no free play in a clockwise direction. Sitting atop of the bezel is Seiko’s Hardlex.

Mixture of satin brush and Seiko high polishing on the sides can be seen on the whole watch, giving it a somewhat premium feel. The screw down crown at four o'clock is easy for time setting. Moving to the back of the watch, the screw down case back allows 200m water resistant , and is also brushed, featuring the recognizable tsunami emblem that is staple on the other Seiko divers. The case does comes with lug holes allowing swapping of straps with ease.

Seiko's LumiBrite

Other than the "PADI" logo on the dial, the sunburst blue dial is probably the highlight of the watch. The dial design stays true to the watch it pays homage to with with many of the classic cues but with a modern twist to it in terms of the color. The superb blue dial in this model, depending on the lightings, goes from a deep blue to a deep black. The indices are largely the same, as are the classic Seiko hour and minutes hands. The hour markers and hands are both generously coated with Seiko's LumiBrite allowing it to glow brightly in the dark for hours.

The Prospex PADI Turtle 200M Automatic Blue/Red Ref. SRPA21J1 comes with the Seiko stainless steel bracelet with the special PADI box.

The Prospex PADI Turtle 200M Automatic Blue/Red Ref. SRPA21J1 is probably one of the more exiciting collaboration netween Seiko and PADI in recent years. And one of the few watches that is worthy to be in any dive watch collection. With its excellent price point and good value for money, it is a watch that will probably find itself onto the wrist of most Seiko buyers
