    Yeah the movement kind of sucks, they should have gone for 6R15 since they are asking 6R15 money for the watch. Expect these to be 50% off next year.

    The new Samurai thread

    I really wanted something fun for the summer and couldn't resist buying one of these even though they were just released and they will inevitably fall in value like other Seiko releases. I think of it as I'm paying to enjoy it for longer!

    The watch is fantastic!

    I've already got the Blue Lagoon Samurai, so probably won't be pre-ordering any of these. But man, that dial texture is gorgeous.

    I may go for the blue one but after the hammering Mr Sinn has just given me there's some doubt over that.

    i got the Blue Lagoon Samurai (pre-ordered) at a local seiko AD at SGD$500 (USD$361). i estimated the prices of the new samurais will be from SGD$340~400 (USD$250~290). hopefully the crown is not off-centered from all the pictures i have seen.

    How accurate has it been so far?

    No need to estimate, the prices are roughly 2x your estimate.

    I'm not one to time my movements but I've never put it on and said, "whoa, that's strange". In other words it has never been so far off that I had to become concerned :)

    I would volunteer to time it but I would probably forget. Let me give it a try and let you know.

    Very nice looking, I could definitely go for the black one. I have a blue lagoon that I'm going to be selling to buy the black one. The colors are great but I've decided I just like black watches better.

    Sort of agree...but at these prices the movement should be way better than a 6r15.

    It should be high beat.
