    It genuinely doesn't trouble me whatsoever. It's unobtrusive to my eye but of course someone could say the same about the vile Orient / Philip Morris logo too.

    If I may chime in on this...You read a lot of complaints about the Orient logo. My theory is that people are basing these on extreme close-up shots of the dial. In person, the logo is tiny. The red is but a speck of color and the lions (or whatever they are) are barely distinguishable.

    It's still too big / too nasty. I almost bought a Mako. Couldn't pull the trigger. Didn't want to look at that logo too much every day.

    It's a funny thing, it just cheapens the watch for me. A shame, as Orient make some genuinely lovely watches. I own a modded one, great movement, very accurate. I just can't get over the logo.

    Hehehe, I agree completely on the prospex logo, it's even more noticeable with the new SUMO, it's another watch with that logo and they even changed the scuba, so I would do what any Seiko addict normally do, and get myself one of the last older versions available, so I don't get contaminated by that Prospex logo! But still I will also be getting The blue turtle as well, in the turtle it doesn't bother me as much as in the sumo somehow..

    The Prospex logo doesn't bother me on either watch, the older Sumo with the multitude of fonts bothered me more!

    The new version of the Sumo still has mismatching fonts. They aren't even contrasting or complementing. At least the old version's fonts contrasted. The fonts on the new one are just slightly different enough to look very amateurish.

    To me it's not as blatant as the old model, don't think that each line of text having its own font looks better. But that's just me.
