    Re: The new Samurai thread

    I know this watch has not been out more than a couple months, but I find myself wondering if and how hard it would be to source and change out he bezel inserts. Anybody done it yet?
    Trying to come up with something pithy....

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    I got my Blue Lagoon Samurai today and yeah, it's pretty awesome. Granted, I'm an unabashed Seiko Fanboy (Monster, BFK, Turtle, Sumo, SKX, Tuna, SSC019) so this one looks immediately familiar right out of the box. The difference is that this the first Seiko I've ever had with a gradient dial and it really takes it up a notch aesthetically. I've been disappointed by the grayish tone seen in blue dial divers that I had high hopes for (Oris Aquis, Borealis Cascais) so I've flipped those and now have something that really pleases my eye. Alignment of the chapter ring and bezel is spot-on, although it appears the six o'clock index has been placed about half a millimeter to the right. It's very minor and not enough to warrant returning the watch. The crown is perfectly centered.

    I'm not a bracelet guy so I immediately mounted the watch on a ToxicNATO Colorectal Cancer Awareness bright blue strap that I think suits the watch very well. Despite the 44mm case size, the watch wears small on my 7-1/4 inch wrist due to the 48mm lug-to-lug distance. I like the style of the knurling on the bezel and crown -- very industrial and different from most diver watches. Of course the lume is brilliant. Hands from the Monster coordinate with the applied indices very nicely and the yellow 12-3-6-9 marks on the chapter ring and on the tip of the second hand add a nice playful splash of alternate color. We'll see how the 4R35 settles in, but I expect it to be like all my other Seiko, Borealis, and Deep Blue divers with the same movement -- good enough but nothing to write home about.

    Overall, I'm quite pleased with this watch and am glad I was able to get one before this Blue Lagoon variant disappears forever.

    What is the lug width for these? Just want to make sure I have the right sized nato's for one.
