    I long run without calibration can be a matter of days, a long run meaning a long time between recalibration.

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    Could I ask one of you fine gentlemen with a new samurai to measure the bezel insert diameter for me? I have an SBDA003 that's seen a hard life and could use a new bezel, be nice if a new one fit.

    sure thing. Will have it on tomorrow. Do you want the overall diamter as you requested as well as the thickness?
    Trying to come up with something pithy....

    Yeah that'd be great Mike, cheers, inside diameter to the glass would be good too while you're at it.

    Beauty thanks ffnc1020.

    Just measured my SBDA and I'm getting ID 31.5mm, OD 40mm, damn. It was worth a try 😁

    No problem at all. I am actually jealous of you having the old blue samurai. I think seiko bumped up the overall size so most likely the components are not interchangeable.

    You might not be so jealous if you saw my SBDA003 it's seen a hard life , it's previous owner was a mechanic and never took it off so it's been beaten around. Still a great watch, the Ti is great.

    Maybe we're cynical but I think you're right on the non interchangeable parts.

    Thanks again.

    I was so set on getting this at launch but the crown issue is really having me rethink this.
