One Part Willard, One Part Turtle, and Two Parts Quality. Merkur Vintage Turtle Homage

Full Review

First Impressions

Today we are taking a look at one of the better vintage homage watches I’ve run across. Although it’s not an homage of a specific watch, but rather seems to be a combination of the classic Captain Willard and the Modern Turtle. This bright and vibrant orange diver by Merkur also brings a ton of value with some nice upgrades from a standard turtle as well.

This Merku Oceanmaster Vintage Turtle homage has a Domed Sapphire Crystal, Sapphire bezel, custom Handset, and all powered by the same Seiko NH35A movement.
