    Re: The new Samurai thread

    I don't think there will be any Titanium version, that's a minor detail and too expensive in the eyes of decision makers. The present Seiko strategy is to make a easy buck with reissues of past glories (turtles, 62MAS, Giugiaro and now the Samurai), each one in its price range. In my imagination these are decided by marketing droids that don't even wear a watch.

    Pepsi bezel looks great in the video. I originally liked the black but looked a bit bland.

    Too bad they're all sold out at LIW.

    All out of stock. And probably it's because of not the selling speed but the limited amount policy as stated in another thread...:P

    Yeah I have to agree. I don't dislike the new hands or dial, but the old one looks much nicer. The hands and markers look much more classy.

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    Did the Samurai ever come in a smaller size? 44mm is definitely big and I have 6.75" wrist. Can anyone with similar wrist size snap a shot for reference?

    Edit: Just saw the Long Island Watch review. I'm definitely tempted, though I do prefer the aesthetics of the Titanium version.

    Exactly: classy and timeless. What a shame....

    To be honest old hour hand wouldn't necessarily work that well with the new dial (markers). They could have simply left the hand/dial combo as it was and nobody would have complained.
