    I really think this will be the right one for me, I wanted a Seiko diver again, I want to try an automatic, I love the look of it and the angles, love that it's so unique and what's good about Seiko. It's basically everything I'm looking for, I just hope it fits nicely.

    Thanks! looks great to me. The blue one is really nice, unfortunately it's not an option for me at the moment due no to availability from any UK ADs. But if it was an option then it would just force me to have to make a tough decision between the blue and the black one anyway, so maybe it's for the best.

    I ordered the SRPB51, it's on its way to me right now. I managed to find a shop to try one on and have a look before ordering and the size of it was absolutely fine. I couldn't see any issue with the finish either which I have seen a couple of people complain about, nor with the quality of the bracelet. I think some people must just have some very high standards, either that or mine are very low.

    Just arrived. Can't complain about the alignment.

    It's rather stunning, very happy with the looks and fit of it.

    From inspecting it the crown is perfectly centred by the way. The chapter ring at 12 and 6 is very marginally off to the left and right respectively, but it's almost imperceptible.

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    I've not worn it yet, I've just had it wound up sitting in the box all day, but so far it is +1 second after 12 hours. It seems to be looking good for this one. I guess it's going to be less accurate when I'm wearing it? This is my first auto so I don't know how this all works yet. I've read that they are less accurate when just sitting there as the spring is constantly winding down with no movement, but I would've thought it moving through the different positions while being worn would effect the accuracy more. Which is correct?


    Also, how many winds does a 4r35 need to fully power it up?

    +2 seconds after 24 hours Better than I expected, but would still like to know if it is going to be less accurate when wearing it or not, and if so can it vary a lot or is it generally only +/- a few seconds?

    I'm now going to leave it with the dial facing down for the next 24 hours to see what happens, and then probably start wearing it tomorrow.

    A little over one week on my wrist and so far so good. Unfortunately, I told myself that one has to go to make space for the new kid on the block (srpb49k1) and so this fella will have to hit the chopping board. In fact, it has already found a new owner. Sad to have to break the two apart, but I can't afford to have another dust collector... as it is, my skxs don't get any wrist time at all.
