Australia and Seiko have always had a strong relationship … in fact, pretty much every major Japanese watchmaker, whether it be Seiko, Grand Seiko, Casio, Citizen … whomever it is, we folk Down Under love a Japanese timepiece. And, out on my watch spotting expedition at the weekend, this sentiment was shored up no end. Enjoy. Ty's Seiko Prospex SRPD50K Ty's gorgeous Seiko Prospex SRPD50K, aka the "Aussie only Turtle", is a pretty stunning watch and perfectly sums up our country's love affair with Seiko and, more acutely, Seiko dive watches. Resplendent with its combination of anthracite coating and yellow gold accents *which can be found on the bezel, crown, indices and handset *this Turtle is a serious looker. Take into account that just 1000 pieces were made exclusively for the Australian domestic market, and this may well be one of the rarer turtles out there … period. A great watch and a very, very worthy weekend warrior. Well done, Ty! Nick's Seiko Liner J14069 Myself and Deputy Editor, Nicholas Kenyon, actually took part in an event down at Phillip Island over the weekend called the San Remo Channel Challenge 2020. And while I'd rather not talk about the race…
