The Seiko “Turtle” needs no presentation now. It is as of now a notorious watch from Seiko’s current setup (it is, obviously, founded on an incredible watch from Seiko’s back inventory ), and Seiko’s very much aware of the watch community’s love for the Turtle, with the Japanese goliath giving various emphasess in the course of the most recent few years. One such variation is the ref. SRPC44 “Golden Turtle” delivered toward the end of last year, and that’s what we’ll be investigating today. from the start, the SRPC44 gives off an impression of being nearest to the SRP777 as far as plan, however it’s like an extraordinary adaptation of that watch. Instead of straightforward “gilt” highlights, what we have here is a major, blingy case altogether covered in goldtone. It’s unquestionably an extraordinary look—I’d even say it’s a piece kitsch—and it’s most likely not for everybody, but rather I think the watch is exceptionally engaging if you’re on a “gold” kick and searching for something to scratch that tingle without breaking the bank.

The dial isn’t a similar dial you find on the SRP777. As opposed to matte dark, it is rather a powerful sunburst anthracite. The markers are encircled by brilliant lines, and the hands are gilted also. The section ring is white on dark, as is all the dial text. We’ve inspected the Turtle line on various events here on Worn & Wound, so I won’t get into it again here. For a more top to bottom glance at the arrangement, you can peruse our survey here . In any case, in the event that you need to see more about the SRPC44 to get a feeling of quality, you can look at our active video underneath.
All in all, the SRPC44 is another cool expansion to the Turtle family. You can get one for $394 through our companions at Long Island Watch , who liberally lent us the watch for this review.
