Like any good obsessive fan-base, the most collectible Seiko models have earned unofficial nicknames – a sure-sign that a particular reference has reached cult status within the community.
You’ve probably heard of the big names – Monster, Turtle, and Tuna to mention just a few. But many people are surprised to learn that Seiko didn’t actually come up with these names, even though some have been unofficially adopted by Seiko since their inception.
In this article, I’m going to explore the most popular Seiko nicknames dubbed by fans, along with a reference table of honorable mentions (both vintage and modern) for the true Seikoholics.
“Your heart was warm and happy
With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
