    Re: The new Samurai thread

    How does the crown feel on yours when you screw and unscrew it? Mine feels a bit rough but from what I've read this seems pretty common on Seikos. My BFK didn't feel like that though, then again it didn't have a winding mechanism also being worked as the crown screwed back in.

    Mine feels very solid and smooth. but srp Turtles use the same movement of which I owned 4 of them, two of them had a less than satisfying Crown winding feel

    i think ppl like u should actually go look for one to actually molest.
    my crown is perfectly centered, but viewing the face at even 5 degrees off center makes the crown look very off...partly due also to the thicker crown guards.

    Same here ^^

    Although there are photos in this thread over actual misaligned ones. Look on page 14.

    i'm sure there are...but its not exactly common.
    i checked out 3 different stores here too, and the ones they had were all also nicely aligned.
    so could be some first batch issue?

    I can't believe the timekeeping of mine so far. After testing it in 6 positions each over 24 hours and getting +2, -3, -4, -1, -10 and +2, I have now been wearing it part of each day since last Friday and it has not lost or gained a second since. I guess the only bad thing is that it can only get worse.

    I think you might find that this phenomena should work both ways i.e. some pictures should show a misalignment to one crown guard some to the other. I'm yet to see a picture of misaligned crown being closer to the top guard. Many on here reported that their watches have a crown physically misaligned to the bottom crown guard. Which statistically makes it more probable than not that the misalignment - at least for some batches - is real and not how you the picture was taken. So no need to be snarky. The pisstake in this thread is justified since the issue is real and Seiko don't even care about such unimportant details.

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    Don't know if it's been covered yet but I recently bought the Pepsi samurai and the date is not centered in the window. I can manually move the date ever so slightly but when the date changes on it's own it's biased towards the top of the window. Bezel and crown line up perfectly. Just wondering if anybody else has experienced the same thing.
