Clear pictures and close-ups do away with a lot of questions and concerns.

    I did have an srp641 that was badly aligned and I ended up sending that one back to the vendor for a full refund. Buying from an overseas dealer would have made that process much more difficult though. But typically I will pay 5% or so more to purchase from a USA vendor with a reasonable return policy instead of saving a few bucks grey market overseas just for that very reason that I might get version but can't live with it.



    Have a great Wednesday everybody

    Posted this one a while back but it's a good indicator of the colors. This is the SRPB49

    This is the typical blue that Seiko uses on many of their divers like the skx009 or the Seiko BLUMO. Meaning in a well-lit condition it does look like my picture would indicate but in other conditions it's hard to tell the difference between a blue and a black dial. That's not a problem with a bezel though.

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    Seller easily is taking the watch back and apologized. Stating these come from the factory and there is an oddball issue. He offered full refund or exchange. I do love the watch. I found a couple retailers that carry the Stainless Black/White. Iíll search there or wait for a WUS Sami to go on sale.

    It was a crazy day. I have much more to worry about than a watch misaligned. This much is true. 90%+ of life is beautiful. We just need to recognize that.

    Sorry if I acted the drama queen as Iíve been actually burnt on much worse over the years.

    Iíll keep hunting.

    Update. DHL just delivered a perfectly made Turtle from Creation watches.

    Yes Iím doing my happy dance.


    It always thrills me to get a perfect new watch. Maybe it is my dopamine release. I do like wine, a good coffee and cigar but automatic watches have been tugging at my heart for 35+ years.

    I worked for a Summer, as a jewelers apprentice/polisher. I spent most free time talking with the watchmakers and learning to love automatic watches. It was the Summer of 1984 and automatics werenít the every day thing. We moved across the country that Fall. But the love had set in. It always will be there as ridiculous as it sounds.

    The specific seller's user name is america-first. I believe they also have another account named america-timesquare.

    That's true for the SKX009 but not for the blue Sumo.

    ***EDIT*** I take back what I said. I just got fooled myself and thought some shots of a blue Sumo were of a black one.
    I meant to say that the shades of blue for the SKX and the Blumo are very different.

    Did Seiko's IG just hint at a new Orange Samurai?
