    Right the black and Pepsi have red second hands. And a former question was if the dial looks cheap: NO ist doesnt. Looks pretty good and high quality!

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    I love the the looks of the SRPB51K1,both online and in the metal. But when I tried it on, while visiting a seiko boutique, it just did not feel right. I wasn't "perfect"... maybe too big, maybe to heavy for me. Too bad, as it is beautiful.

    I actually thought a lot about it and decided not to buy. Some days I regret it, but I usually think it was the best decision. I'm contemplating a shogun now, But I don't think I will be able to see and try one before buying, so we'll see...

    To me it looks just a little to big. Very doable if you enjoyed it, but I ended up passing on it for this exact reason

    Pity the Shogun doesn't come with Pepsi bezel.

    Just received my Samurai.

    Love it except for the bezel "gap"

    Anyone have similar, or is this normal?

    Thanks

    The bezel is about 2mm larger at both ends of the lugs (6 & 12) and at 3 & 9 which accentuates it in a photo at 100%

    Having said that there is a very small gap of maybe 0.5mm, here's mine.

    Thanks. Mine moves down a bit if you apply vertical pressure at six o clock, but otherwise no back play or any other movement.
    I just do not like to see that amount of light when looking side on. I think I get a bit obsessive, until I buy a new watch!

    If I push the bezel down at all 12 o'clock, there is no play at all, it sits dead flat.

    I hope it's. It like the construction market. Same laborers working on cracker jack houses that are building custom homes.
