    If its a REissue of the TURTle... can't we just call it the Retirt. Then we can can have a Gold varient, the Gretirt. The Pepsi is the Pretirt, and the blue is the Bretirt.

    Never mind, it must be the Booker's bourbon getting the best of me....
    I never met a carburetor that I didn't like!

    Since the watch has been out for a few weeks, and people are calling it the Turtle, I say the name is settled.

    Naming the new release is difficult due to all the new color variations... When someone says 6309 or 6306, you instantly think of the black bezel and dial.

    For these, I think the model name is the best way to go.


    Can even say: "SRP77 Blue" or "SRP77 Pepsi" or "SRP77 Gold" etc..



    Plus, honestly, you really don't see many people using the term 'turtle' anyway... it always 6309 / 6306

    I feel your pain OP but then again, Turtle is not that bad of a name. I sat back and watched as one of my favorite watches some how got stuck with the name Spork! It was a sad day when I accepted that name was going to stick.

    I'm sure it's been said in this thread before (because I know I didn't come up with it). But the only name that even remotely sounds ok to me is "TurtleX".

    *Edit*
    Just saw on the previous page someone mentioned it. Ha.

    So I guess the blue one is now the Blurtle? Works for me

    I thought that was the name for the "leaf shield" in a video game? How about Sode (samurai shoulder shield/armour)?
