Both the Turtle and Samurai ought to be recognizable to unwavering Worn & Wound perusers. In the course of the last a few years, these have basically become key plunge watch stages for Seiko as they’ve persistently presented new shading variations. The case state of each is unmistakable in an unexpected way. The Turtle is an enormous pad case plan that’s propelled by a mainstream Seiko reference from the 70s. The 45mm size is to some degree deceiving, as the case flanks are intensely molded, making the watch wear significantly more modest than the expressed measurements. It’s a major watch, yet comfortable, and brimming with minimal optical fantasies that cause it to show up “normal” on the wrist.

The Samurai adopts an altogether different plan strategy. Additionally roused by a reference from the Seiko back inventory, the SRPD23 is brimming with points and has hauls that are gotten down to business, making a totally different impression outwardly. Despite the breadth of the Samurai being about a millimeter more modest than the turtle, I’ve found that it wears like a lot bigger watch because of the case’s extraordinary math. All things considered, it’s not uncomfortable, and has a great deal of wrist presence.

Now, let’s get into that dial. Bunches of brands have been bringing out water themed blue dials as of late. Omega’s freshest Seamasters have emotional laser cut “wave” dials. Oris has delivered a progression of restricted version watches in a comparative shade of blue as these new Seikos, and they additionally drive attention to ensuring the oceans. Also, obviously this isn’t the first run through Seiko has come up with a blue dial that’s intended to make the wearer think about the ocean. This is conceivably, nonetheless, the first run through a shark has been proposed on a dial this way. Feel free to squeeze to zoom on the dial photographs, and notice what has all the earmarks of being a dorsal balance close to the 8:00 marker on each watch. On the off chance that you get yourself hesitant to get back in the water in the wake of lashing one of these on, this could be the reason.

Both watches are accessible now on Seiko’s site and on Amazon ( SRPD21 and SRPD23 ).
