Coming in 4 cool versions likely in Jan 2016 / early 2016

- cool variants on the 6309 turtle with blue, gold accented version and a pepsi bezel one. 
- most of it is true to the original which is a good thing
- that not so great prospex logo... i never liked it and would be happier without it
- why is the lollipop on the wrong end? 
- old one line is better than the 2 lines on the dial
- price can be seen as a bit on the high side for Seiko

UPDATE: Some live pix here LINK hmm not so keen anymore from these pix. the original looks better to me so no need to get the new one.
