In my opinion the King Turtle is the best of the Seiko Turtle models. Is it perfect? No, at least not for me. But I appreciate the things that they have done to make it a better watch.

Different bezel and insert that really are a step above anything offered in the Turtle category. A nice (to me) dial and better lume. A sapphire crystal which is hopeless with the cyclops (personal opinion) and a super cool seconds hand.

To make mine better (to me) I swapped out the crystal for a different, domed, sapphire and the hour and minute hands. Now they are almost perfect...

Yowza, not sure how I somehow missed seeing this post Chaz. Very cool ! :D
Actally really liked this watch to start, but videos always make me like the
watch that much more. (y)(y) Between the excitement of the people that
make them, the photos, and shots of the watches, and cool music, 🎸😎
you actually enjoy the watches even more. And with a watch like the King
Turtle the excitement level is already high.

I'm with Carlo, I really like the way Seiko tries to find new ways to make their
watches grab you. I mean they still have the classic combinations for people.
Not to mention new cutting edge models. However, just love how they will try
new things, and look to make their watches that much more interesting, and
intriguing. Kind of like Carlo ! ;):cool:

Thank you so much for posting this up for us sir !!!

If you guys like the "King" Turtle, check out the "King" Samurai, this is probably going to be my next watch! Sapphire crystal and ceramic bezel as well!

The Samurai is sweet too Chaz, and with these new waffle dials, it
adds a whole new element, and personality. 😎😀Just the regular
Samurai couldn't be cooler, but these new ones are very impressive.
It's another watch that is serious, but fun, ..seriously fun ! 😄

I hope one finds it's way to you there sir. Thanks a lot for the news,
as well as pic !!!

:D(y)(y);) You know Carlo, it's actually unbelievable just the difference
changing the hands can have right?! 🤯😎Was actually thinking that it
would be really great if companies offered different hand choices for their
watches. That way everyone could have the look they liked, and it would
just be neat to see honestly.

It has to be amazing already having that option in your case Carlo ! 😄😉
