Seiko as a brand is quite renowned for producing high-quality watches that follow innovation and the traditional vintage mechanical design at the same time that makes them stand out as a top-end brand with raving fans ready to buy their brand-new products year in and year out.
In alignment with their tradition of crafting new and innovative designs to quench the thirst of their loyal customers, Seiko added a new masterpiece to their Turtle product line in 2021 and they named it “Seiko Prospex Black King Turtle SRPH41K1”.
This article will shed some light on the extravagant features of SRPH41K1 but first, let us have a quick look at the history of Seiko’s most accepted and recognized series; the “Seiko Turtle Series”.
Brief History of Seiko Turtle
Back in 1976, Seiko introduced a new series in their product line that they named “Seiko 6306A”. Seiko’s idea was to use a combination of numbers and digits as the name because they intended to launch various watches in the series consistently.

However, the Seiko fans took no regard for the brand’s ideas about the series name and started calling it the “Turtle” which caught fame rapidly, and soon the series started to rename as the “Seiko Turtle Series”.
Since then, Seiko has launched several watches in the Turtle series like “Ninja Turtle”, “Mini Turtle” and “King Turtle”.
The new Prospex Black King Turtle SRPH41K1 is one of the latest and a limited edition in the King Turtle family.
