Seiko Prospex Save the Ocean 2021 Watches Review

Persevering on their mission to protect our oceans and marine life, Seiko have expanded their Save the Ocean collection with two new King Turtle and King Samurai watches under references SRPF77 and SRPF79. Dressed in ocean blue, the new King models deliver upgraded materials and technology to some of their bestselling pieces, the Turtle and the Samurai, alongside two unique manta ray decorated dials.

 

The Seiko Save the Ocean concept first began back in 2018 when Seiko teamed up with ocean explorer and marine conservationist Fabien Cousteau, grandson of famed underwater explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau. In honour of his grandfather and the legacy the pair have worked so hard towards, Fabien Cousteau founded the Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Centre in 2016, an organisation determined to bring positive action to all our oceans around the world. As with all Seiko Save the Ocean watches before it, the new 2021 Save the Ocean collection will help raise money for the Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Centre, becoming the fourth run in the series.

 

 

Seiko Prospex Save The Ocean 2021 King Samurai SRPF79K1

 

Turtle, Tuna, Monster, Shogun and of course, the Samurai, the nicknames for Seiko’s diver’s watches are almost endless but they demonstrate the affection collectors have for these accessible and durable underwater instruments. Recently, the prefix “King” began to appear in front of these nicknames to highlight new upgraded specifications and the new Seiko Prospex Save The Ocean 2021 King Samurai under SRPF79K1 is no different, delivering the unmistakable sword-shaped hands and sleek angular case of the “Samurai” but now with some contemporary improvements for enhanced quality.

 

 

The Seiko Prospex Save The Ocean 2021 King Samurai SRPF79K1 retains its case shape with a 43.8mm by 12.8mm profile but is now engineered from more robust stainless steel with sapphire crystal glass with a handy magnifier over the date. A knurled unidirectional bezel in black ceramic with 60 minute scale equips the edges while a new grey-toned dial with a fine wave pattern and manta ray decoration brings to life the centre. The hands for hours, minutes and seconds and date window at 3 o’clock are powered by the calibre 4R35 automatic winding movement, which alongside 23 jewels and a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour delivers a power reserve of 41 hours. The Seiko Prospex Save The Ocean King Samurai SRPF79K1 also boasts a 200 metre water resistance, a blue silicon strap and will retail at £550.

Seiko Prospex Save The Ocean 2021 King Turtle SRPF77K1

 

 

Like its Samurai counterpart, the Seiko Prospex Save The Ocean 2021 King Turtle SRPF77K1 watch retains its vintage-inspired aesthetic with a crown at 4 o’clock and cushion shaped case which evokes the shell of a turtle. Again, modern improvements are made to the 45mm brushed and polished stainless steel case, sapphire crystal with magnifier and grooved black ceramic insert bezel while the stunning manta ray dial at the centre is designed to echo the gradations of sunlight refraction and the patterns of waves in honour of the Save the Ocean family.

 

The Seiko Prospex Save The Ocean SRPF77K1 continues to impress with the 4R36 automatic winding calibre at its core, similar in construction to the 4R35 but this time delivering an additional day aperture beside the date at 3 o’clock.

The watch also comes with a screw down crown and case back to assist in its 200 metre water resistant rating and a matching blue silicon strap.
