After having completed two other projects with this red dial (Brian May Seiko Special Edition) I liked it so much I put together another one to keep. I was never interested in red dialed watches before and in fact never had any for years. But recently I came in possession of a couple and decided I was missing out.

The base watch is a Seiko SRP Save the Ocean Turtle which has been modified in several ways. First of all the crystal is domed and is a sapphire. The bezel is aftermarket coin edge and so is the insert, steel etched. The chapter ring is also different, steel instead of the plastic one on the original model. I did not do these modifications but I did install the OEM Seiko Red Brian May dial and the Sea Urchin hands.

The result is below. I like it a lot and decided to make this a keeper.

I was similar. Except the only red dial that kind of caught my interest was the issued “Brian May Special Red”. When it came out, I had a couple reservations. For one, thought it too expensive, 2 thought it should have been made with a turtle case. Apparently you did as well. Really great work there sir! Nicely done! A keeper indeed!!

Alright, this is just awesome Carlo ! 😲:cool:(y)(y)

It’s funny how we are some times with certain dials right?!
And red is one of those colors that is extra sporty, as well
as aggressive too right?! On the one hand it’s a spectacular
color, but on the other we realize as watch fans that it can
take over. Not to mention have a variety of hues that can
look everything from a dark orange to burgundy. But this
red is just perfect, perfect I say.;):D

Love that Yin and Yang meets Jeet Kune Do feel as well !
Wow, so neat sir, and with all of the other changes, this is
not only just a keeper. But is unforgettable ! ..Yet another
highlight project sir ! Well done !!!

A COLOSSAL congrats !!!
