1984 Seiko 6309-7049 150m Sport Diver “Turtle”

1984 Seiko 6309-7049 150m Sport Diver “Turtle”


As important as any watch can be too the efficacy of a brand, the 6309-7040/9 is a perfect delivery of intention. It's as rugged and hard wearing as it is aesthetically satisfying. Even as the first "Turtles" released in 1976 turned 43 this year, one thing is certain... they don't get old. This early example from October of ‘84 is no exception. Unpolished, and completely original aside from a replacement crystal, it's an opportunity to add an icon to your roster. The luminous plots are bright white with no visible patina or degradation. The hands have mostly retained their polished finish, but with some light oxidation. The bezel rotates with a firm click in either direction, and considering it’s age, the insert bears only moderate wear. The crown and case back screw down tightly, and the 6309A they protect is a workhorse movement ready to provide many more years of service. Post service, it has a great reserve and is keeping near perfect time. It ships attached to the original GL831 straight vented strap for a comfortable and complete finish. A true Seiko icon, and still their top selling diver to date, it’s a must have for any collector
