What about a reference to the earlier 6309 'Turtle', and call it the 'Loggerhead' or 'Leatherback', both are species of sea turtles. This would avoid confusion with the earlier 6309 series.

Although it annoyed me when the eBay sellers started calling the 6309s "Turtle", since it hadn't needed a nickname for 4o years, I have to admit the shape is well fitted to the name.
And if Seiko is already calling this new homage a Turtle, the momentum may be hard to stop.
I hope we won't call the original 6309 by any nickname.
And for this new "Prospex" homage I think I'm going to refer to it as the Xurtle, which is pronounced "zturtle", like you are about to say "strudy" with a Russian accent, but then decide to end the word like you meant to say turtle!
No hope, I know...
Poor Certina, they're the Rodney Dangerfield of diver watches. I've read that they've been using the Turtle on their casebacks since 1960. Can't get no respect.
Just don't call the 777 the Turdle!
Once there was the Arnie,its direct predecesor was called the 007, a bond revérence.
why nor call it the Martin Sheen or the apocalyps.
"The watch formerly known as Turtle"?
This watch casing looks like Doxa watch.
