It’s one of our favourite times of year here at Horologii. Not only do you have the festive buzz of Christmas around the corner but you also have luxury brands like Seiko revealing models like their Seiko Blue Lagoon Turtle SRPB11K1 watch expected to be released in the new year. We got to be one of the first retailers to get our hands on this striking new release when our friends at Seiko revealed it to us at our C W Sellors Christmas Wishes event held at Chatsworth House earlier this month.
This gorgeous timepiece follows a very similar design to other Seiko Turtles watches that have graced the market and we expect the Seiko Blue Lagoon Turtle SRPB11K1 watch to be just as popular. This years Seiko PADI watches that are still in production have sold incredibly well and it seems their new release will be following in their footsteps. The Blue Lagoon Turtle still boasts the familiar retro cushion shaped stainless steel case, screw down crown and unidirectional bezel as other Seiko diving watches but has been upgraded to include a variety of breathtaking shades of blue across the dial and bezel. Another key addition that is difficult to miss is the bold luminescent hands, particularly the distinctive arrow shaped hour hand. Housed within the stainless steel case is the familiar Seiko 4R36 automatic movement, providing a useful day and date feature at 3 o clock, 24 jewels and a power reserve of 40 hours.
The Seiko Blue Lagoon Turtle SRPB11K1 watch will retail at only £449.00 is expected to be released in February 2017 – giving us all something to look forward to in the new year. You can already place your pre-orders for this model here, something we would highly recommend you do considering how popular these timepieces are expected to be. There is only going to be 6,000 pieces of the SRPB11K1 produced with only 100 of these expected to be released in the UK.
