I have a dive watch from Seiko. As you can see it has the Pepsi Bezel.
The numbers on the back are 6309 729A and then in a square box, F1. I got it years ago (maybe 2010) used on Ebay for about 80 bucks. It seems o keep good time and is still in good shape.
Is this one of the Turtles?
I have ordered 2 Monster dive watches and they should be in next week, but I have been wearing this one today

Yep, Don is right. The "Turtle" Seiko's were the 6309-7040, 6309-7049, 6306-7000, and 6306-7001. Plenty of other Seiko's in that time featured the same 6309 movement, but the case is what made it stand out.

Your's is a slim case 6309, a style adopted after that which continued on with only minor changes through the 80's, 90's, up until today with the 7002 and later SKX divers. Good looking watch, and a classic on its own.

I am only now getting interested in Seiko, but holy moly have they made a lot of different models and updates of those models. I like to look of the original turtles, but I am eyeing the reissue as well...
I think I need more wrists.......

This one is an original 6309-7040 case, but with a quartz movement swap from a 7548 diver. One of my favorite "never-quite-finishes-projects" that I have.
