The Seiko turtle is an iconic watch among watch collectors, the case ergonomics still amaze me! Whilst you look at the dimensions on paper you may think it's a large watch, but how that cushion case sits on the wrist is something special. This is the reference 6309-7040, dating to 1981. The dial, hands and bezel insert are replacements. You still get that vintage feeling with this watch and all the charm that comes with a vintage dive watch.
Points of Mention
This reference does have replacement hands, dial and bezel insert. The watch comes with no box or paperwork. The watch is currently running but has no service history.
Whilst most of the watch has been replaced it is still a nice looking Turtle and for the price you really cannot go wrong. I have always been a fan of the Seiko turtle and I hope to add a true vintage reference to the personal collection one day.
