This time round I had the opportunity to handle the Seiko Prospex “Save the Ocean” King Turtle, SRPE39K1. This is a special edition that features a textured blue dial with stingrays printed on it. It is an upgraded version of the Seiko 4R based Turtle. Below are my opinions of the new features.
Sapphire crystal: this is a good upgrade but the cyclops is definitely unnecessary.
Anti-reflective coating: the effect is obvious. I can see the difference in clarity when comparing the King Turtle with the regular Turtle.
Bezel: I prefer the new bezel design. It is very nice and provides a good grip.
Ceramic bezel insert: Not a fan of ceramic insert as it reflects light easily. Aluminium insert is good enough for me.
