The new King Turtles

The bezel features two upgrades. The insert is now ceramic, which I recall people asking for way back when the Turtle first hit the market, and the grip-able pattern along the bezel’s edge now features a harder, more angular groove pattern versus the softer one of the previous model. This gives the watch a slightly more modern, aggressive look, but I don’t think it looks out of place with the Turtle’s neo-vintage roots — it’s just different. Plus, the new design will surely offer a better grip underwater… More here.

I like the Turtle and I like some of the other new Seikos that the new Turtles have borrowed from, but I’m not sure this new look quite works.
