Prospex “Save The Ocean” King Turtle 200M Ref. SBDY079

2 Reviews

Our love for dive watches has continued to grow alongside Seiko’s ever-expanding arsenal of professional diver’s watches. On the flip side, the health of our oceans and its wildlife has ceaselessly declined, suffering the negative impacts of human activities. In an effort to preserve the marine environment, Seiko launched a special collection of dive watches back in 2018 by collaborating with Fabien Cousteau, a renowned oceanographic explorer that dedicated his life to underwater exploration and marine conservation. 



Seiko PProspex “Save The Ocean” King Turtle 200M Ref. SBDY079 / SRPF77

Seiko’s “Save The Ocean'' initiation set a stage for a family of timepieces incorporating beautiful ocean-inspired design motifs with capable ISO-certified diving prowess. Having a core emphasis on protecting the ocean, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each watch from this collection goes to The Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Centre (FCOLC), a non-profit organisation committed to marine research projects and preserving our planet’s precious waters. Joining the collection, Seiko dropped their latest “Save The Ocean” special edition that showcases premium materials and an alluring design portraying elements of the ocean. 



Taking inspiration from Japan’s first ever original dive watch - the Seiko 6105, the classic design of the venerable Seiko Turtle has continued to look incredibly timeless even in this day and age. Today, Seiko brought us the Seiko Prospex “Save The Ocean” King Turtle 200M Ref. SBDY079, their latest “Save The Ocean” variant of the Turtle that stays true to its historic design with a fresh new appearance. Retaining its conventional specifications, the iconic “cushion” case measures in with a diameter of 44.3mm, a thickness of 13mm and a lug to lug distance of 47mm.


New wave textured dial with shadows of manta-rays

Despite the large diameter, the SBDY079 wears smaller than the dimensions suggests as the 45mm diameter is largely attributed to its wide tonneau-shaped case. Together with a compact lug to lug distance, the watch rests comfortably on most wrist sizes. Finishing is executed well with clean satin brushing on the top of the lugs and a high polish at the side of the case, adding a rugged charm to the overall look.

At the 4 o’clock position, the screw-down crown is protected by the case, acting as integrated crown guards. This effectively equips this piece with a capable 200m of ISO-rated water resistance, making it a perfect companion to bring with you for diving adventures. This level of water resistance is also achieved as a result of the screw-in case back, revealing Seiko’s signature Tsunami logo, a mark signifying the watch’s competency as a professional ISO-rated Prospex diver. 



The newly updated “King” of Turtles

One of the key traits that differentiates itself from the Seiko Turtle lies in the bezel of this piece. The Prospex “Save The Ocean” King Turtle 200M Ref. SBDY079 houses a jet black ceramic bezel with contrasting grey markers, offering incredible resistance against scratches. This 120-click unidirectional rotating dive bezel gorgeously catches the light with a glossy shine, presenting a grandeur look that is simply pleasing to look at from various angles. 



Like many previous “Save The Ocean” models, the Prospex “Save The Ocean” King Turtle 200M Ref. SBDY079 illustrates magnificent artistry in the dial design. Diving in for a closer look, the astonishing blue fumé dial transitions from a deep sea blue at the center of the dial to almost black at the outer edge - a stunning design reminiscent of different depths of the ocean. The dial brings forth an exquisite texture that depicts the surface of the ocean, adorned with subtle figures of manta rays. This creates a gorgeous potratral of a view conveying the manta rays just beneath the surface of the water. Seiko definitely makes one of the best looking dials in this price range.


Ceramic bezel with sapphire crystal

It’s no secret that Seiko uses crazy good lume on their watches. The prominent handsets and markers are treated with Seiko’s proprietary LumiBrite lume, glowing exceptionally bright in dark lighting conditions. On top of that, the dial is protected by a flat piece of scratch-resistant anti-reflective sapphire crystal with a day and date magnifier (dubbed the ‘candy bar’ cyclops) at the 3 o’clock position. Matching the blue dial, the watch comes supplied with a soft and supple blue 22mm Seiko silicone rubber diver strap. 



The Prospex “Save The Ocean” King Turtle 200M Ref. SBDY079 is driven by the Seiko in-house caliber 4R36 automatic movement, a notable upgrade from the previous caliber 7S family of movements that were lacking in handwinding and hacking capabilities. This 24 jewel movement features a healthy power reserve of approximately 41 hours and beats at a rate of 21,600 beats per hour. Widely recognized as one of a ‘workhorse’ movement, the 4R36 boasts remarkable robustness from the proprietary Diashock anti-shock system and has a reputation to run reliably for an extended period of time without a service. 



Seiko's LumiBrite

In essence, the Prospex “Save The Ocean'' King Turtle 200M Ref. SBDY079 is a wonderful addition to the “Save The Ocean'' collection, bringing great specifications accompanying a captivating design that looks as charming as the sea. In addition, the contribution back to the ocean through the purchase of this piece holds additional significance, especially for a good cause towards the world we live in. Apart from the excellent value proposition, you also get to experience a little piece of the ocean on your wrist wherever you go with a simple glance down to your wrist.
