    Sorry guys, I was reading 2 threads at the same time and was actually referring to the Seiko Shogun and replied to the wrong thread - but yes there is of course the classic turtle without the additional logo.

Only my Sub has a better accuracy than this but not by much and Rolex promises their superlative chronometers to be -2 +2 sec a day. You are paying a whole lot different kind of money for them too though.
    I LOVE the logo, to be honest. It has heritage and is a really interesting design. For some folks maybe it's about change, or too much text, but I think it adds to the watch dial.

Was not aware there was a nonProspex version of this watch without the logo, that's great to hear. If I could pull off the size I would pick one up.

    I was a little wary of the size but numerous posts told of it wearing small. The lugs are very short and droop. The bracelet has plenty of spare links left in it. Small caveat, my wrist is more oblong than round. 51mm calipered 162 around so my wrist wears the watch rather than the other way around.

    This is an awesome watch - I'm really considering this one. I went through a chunk of this thread & was curious to see if anyone has pics of one of these on a Seiko (or other) jubilee. I think this on a jubilee would be the cat's meow for sure.

    I am not dealing well with the bling finish strap on unfinished case. I guess mine is actually finished but finished to look like they took it out of the lathe and cut in the lugs, polished the inside of the lugs and the bottom and left the top, came back from lunch and assembled it, realised it was a good look anyway and let it go. You can feel the tool mark ridges with your fingernails.

    The only version without the Prospex logo that I know of is the original 6309 and its variants:

    Yeah, that's an incredible look! I think I'm going for one too, with the divers ratchet.
