Seiko’s Latest Prospex "King Turtle" Might Be Its Best Watch Yet

TALKING POINTS

Few watches are as iconic among watch enthusiasts as Seiko's SRP series, and the SRPE05 Prospex Automatic Diver takes that same classic design and updates it with a slightly more modern aesthetic. The watch's size, shape and khaki green colorway make it infinitely wearable in the day-to-day, and the 24-jewel automatic movement, sapphire crystal and ceramic bezel make it reliable enough to stay that way for years to come.

Same Great Shape, But with Upgraded Features:

How do you improve on a timeless classic? Add a ceramic elapsed timing bezel and sapphire crystal with a magnified day/date window. Those may sound like small improvements, but they go a long way in upping the durability and legibility of the watch, while at the same time giving it a richer and more finished quality.

A New Color and Texture for a More Modern Feel:

The new khaki green colorway of the SRPE05 Prospex Automatic Diver goes well with everything. It's a color that feels both retro and decidedly modern at the same time. But beyond the color, the three dimensional dial pattern reflects the unique design of the bezel edge, enhancing the already eye-catching look.

Same Great Performance:

The SRPE05 brings the same great aquatic performance as all the SRP watches before it. It's water-resistant to 200m and features a mechanical movement with 41-hour power reserve. And when it does run out of juice, the movement can be wound both automatically and manually. Whether you're actually diving or just "desk diving," this watch will be sure to please.
