    NAME THE NEW SEIKO ***NOT THE TURTLE PLEASE*** SRP773K1 SRP775K1 SRP777K1 SRP779K1

    I just can't call this the Turtle. First of all, the name is taken. Secondly, I like the idea of keeping with the Japanese warrior and fighting names theme of Shogun, Samurai, Sumo etc. So, lets hear some name suggestions and get this debate going on an official thread.

    I like the Seiko Ōban 大番
    Translated "Great Watch"
    According to Wikipedia (the source of all true knowledge)
    The Ōban (大番?), usually translated as "Great Watch," was a contingent of troops dedicated to protecting the Home Provinces (畿内, kinai) and safeguarding the Throne. The Watch existed in one form or another across Japanese feudal history, serving under the Ashikaga shogunate as well as the Tokugawa.

    Actually the Japanese word for gold metal is kin or kane. The color is kiniro. Gorudo how they say the English word.

    Also, the great watch would leave Japanese speakers confused. It refers to a group of people like you said. It has no relationship to a watch like you're referring to. It's not like English where watch has the same meanings.

    So, having "ban" in any name referring to a watch would be weird.

    I'd like to call them the "HEIKE" divers. The case shape resembles the Japanese samurai crabs which were named after the clan. Very cool story! If you've seen the series Cosmos, you know what I'm talking about.

    Wow... if those are real.. I want one... The deluxe reverb may have to wait.

    If we're keeping with the Japanese warrior tradition, Seiko Ronin?

    Someone suggested it in another thread but I vote for Squirtle. Fits with all the S names: Sumo, Shogun, Samurai...

    We should let this thread go on for a week and then make a poll with all the names and find our winner.

    It's the Turtle, get over it. The Seiko website already has it labeled as such http://www.seiko.at/home/kollektione.../srp779k1.html
