    Re: The new Samurai thread

    Is the crown issue on the Blue Lagoon as well or only isolated to these?

    I picked up a reissue black Sammie and while it has defects, it's still a great watch and I got a better price after pointing out the flaws. Won't help it's resale value, but I rarely flip em.

    I just took a close look at my BL crown and it looks fine to me. Maybe others can weigh in too...
    Which watch company would you buy if you had $178 BILLION?

    I still don´t like the bezel insert. The hour markers look a bit better now, but still doesn´t harmonize with the triangle on 12. Just my 0,02 €

    I received mine a few days ago. Everything looks fine on it. Crown is centered and no alignment problems.

    It's the black version on the bracelet. I've looked it over pretty closely and everything seems to be as it should. No pics for now as it's packed away for a vacation trip in the morning. I bought it from Long Island Watch and asked them to check for alignment problems and apparently they did. I really like the watch, the only issue I have with it is that it's running +15 spd, not terrible and within specs but still, I wish it was a little better. It's early though, it may settle down a bit.

    It looks perfect, because it's not visible.
