    Strap looks really good.

    These are only a steal in contrast to so many overpriced Seiko....looking at you Shogun, Sumo, and SBP051/053 not to mention the outrageously priced SLA017. Yeah, I get it has 8L35, but $3500+? Give me a break...and any 6r15 over $500 is highway robbery.

    These Samurai are fairly priced, not a huge bargain.

    And compared to the Shogun the Sumo is a steal. Seiko charge twice as much for the Shogun lol. Yeah because being made of titanium really makes it worth that much more.

    Unrelated to that discussion, I know this is to do with the movement more and not the watch itself but my Samurai is +1 second against the atomic clock after wearing it for a week, it's at most been -2/+2 off in that time. I've definitely won the accuracy lottery with this one, my first auto too.

    There are cases when the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The shogun is in that catagory. YMMV

    Does anyone know if there are aftermarket sapphire crystals or ceramic bezel inserts available yet? I've looked around at some of the usual places and I'm not seeing them yet.

    I know loads of people said that the original titanium hands looked so much better than the monster hands on the new one, but seeing them side by side now I actually think the monster hands look better on it. I do like the Sumo second hand though.
