The SEIKO Prospex SRPC48J SRPC48J1 Black Gold Turtle Mens Diver Watch is a 44.3mm wide, 200-meter steel dive watch that is 13.3mm thick and 47.25mm lug to lug. It is powered by Seiko’s automatic 4R36 movement with a day/date display, hacking, and hand winding. For this specific model, we have a black case, a matching gold bezel, and a black dial.
The base of this Seiko design can trace its roots back to the mid 70s with their original 6309 diver. The SRPC48J takes a really successful reissued design and gives it an entirely distinct vibe. The real charm of these Seiko divers is their ability to make you feel like you’re living in the era that gave birth to the design – almost as if you could be a product of that time.
The SRPC48J is really fun, deceptively cool, and I think the black treatment works really well with the 6309 aesthetic. It’s old and new, romantic and functional, and for me, it’s a welcome flash of black-gold Seiko nostalgia.
