Seiko "Ninja Turtle" SBDY005 JDM (Limited to 300 pieces)
Parkbury's View: The creamy hour-markers and the orange hand are my favorite thing about this watch. Besides that it also looks like a villain would wear it!!
Dunn's Assessment: If my research finds me correctly, i think this might be the rarest modern "Turtle" from Seiko's lineup.
Story behind the watch: Seiko released their "Black Series" of dive watches in 2018, with the most popular model being the "Ninja Turtle" out of the three. Giving you the same reliability and comfort as any Turtle, this particular one looks the most different because of the colors. Please note, the reason this is so expensive is because this is the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) release which is fully made and released only for Japan. The other Black Turtle models (SRPC49K SRPC49J) are international releases.

Opinions of notable watch connoisseurs
"Seiko has introduced many variations on the Turtle theme, but this one is different enough to warrant your interest. While we have no idea when Seiko will stop producing these, I’d think it best to act quickly before it’s too late." -- Fratello Watches
" It may not be the most necessary or expected update, and the shape of the case—which is so crucial to the overall appearance—is slightly less pronounced when PVD or DLC coated, but it really adds an extra dimension to create a great watch in its own way. " -- Worn & Wound
