New Seiko Thailand Edition “Turtle” Zimbe Automatic Diver’s Watch SRPA19K1

Saw this poster at the BTS station (i.e. sky train, in contrast to the underground train system which is known as the MRT) in Bangkok yesterday.

The poster just changed yesterday which means this is probably fresh to the market or about to launch.

Looks pretty decent in my opinion especially with the slate grey dial and subtle orange accents on the minute chapter ring, seconds hand and the wording “Limited Edition”.

How do I know its a Thailand only edition? Well, the ever present “cyclops” for the Thailand only models is present here as well! Update:Goto http://www.seikozimbe.com for more details. Looks like a 1299 piece release.

Zimbe seems to represent whale shark.

It’s powered by a pedestrian 4R36 movement, similar to the regular models. It appears to come with a sapphire crystal which is definitely an upgrade.

See screenshots below with Google translation to English.


Let’s see if I can spot it in the watch shops and find out the price.
