    Re: The new Samurai thread

    Hello everyone!!! New to these forums and have a quick question on the Blue Lagoon LE SRPB09. I am considering in getting one and my concern is if there are different versions of it where it says on the dial "made in japan" and one that says "movt japan".Aren't they all basically made in japan anyways? Thanks.

    No, none are made in Japan. There are some made for the Japanese market, that say "Made in Japan" SRPB09J1, which just means it was inspected in Japan.

    So the made in japan on the back of the watch doesn't mean anything as well? I know that these days almost everything is made in china but isn't that false advertisement to say the watch are made in japan by japanese but are actually not?

    From what I've read on here and according to Japanese law, no it's not. Basically it's something like if they have Japanese nationals overseeing the operation in the factory wherever it is, they can legally print Made In Japan on it. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong but I think that's what I read in another thread on here discussing the subject.

    the technically correct term should be 'assembled in japan'...
    but we all know some freely interchange 'assembled' with 'made'...
    same applies to others like swiss or american but predominantly use japanese movements... and quite a number of parts from china...

    Most J models the watch clearly states "made in Japan". I know there are alot of known loopholes to this but I'm not knowledgeable enough in this regard to make any comments.

    Do you have any sources that confirm they are indeed inspected in Japan?

    Thanks

    Trying out another strap, this 55 is gorgeous, and a steal in my opinion.

    That looks great, really suits it imo. The angles on the strap match with the angular case.
