A reissue of the iconic Seiko 6309 – Seiko SRP series were released in 2016. Seiko Turtle SRP with a case diameter of 44.3mm, some of the people may think that it’s a bit large.
Seiko releases new ‘Mini Turtles’, SRPC35K1, SRPC37K1, SRPC39K1, and SRPC41K1 divers. With a case diameter of only 42.3mm, it’s a much more wearable size for small wrist people. It’s not simply a scaled-down version of the Seiko SRP series Turtle. Let’s take a closer look at this Seiko Mini-Turtle Prospex Automatic Dive Watch SRPC41K1 (PADI Edition) Pepsi Bezel. The most obvious change is the location of the crown. While the Seiko SRP series Turtle’s crown was positioned at 4 o’clock and with the crown guard, the new Mini Turtles crown features a crown at 3 o’clock without the crown guard.
Powering this ‘Mini Turtle’ runs on 4R35 automatic movement. It’s a 23 jewels movement with hacking and hand winding options. 41 hours of power reserve and a beat rate of 21,600 vibrations per hour.
For the dials part, the hour markers are rounded. It ensures 200m of water resistance. The cushion case has a different shape which is slightly smoother than Seiko SRP series Turtle, more rounded on top and softer overall. The mini Turtle has only a date window, a simple date with a rounded cyclops.
