    The new Samurai thread

    I think it's time to start a thread covering the latest reissue, Seiko Samurai. The black dial on bracelet is supposed to launch in June, the other 3 versions in August/September. I reckon it will become bigger than turtle reissue and the manlike myself is aiming for the pepsi on rubber. So who's got one on preorder and which one?

    I'm not even kidding, I may end up with all of them. As an LE owner, I am absolutely in love with this new Samurai.

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    Yes! We need this thread! After owning the BL Sammy I have to get the black dial SRPB51K1. I'll probably become by new daily beater.

    I don't know how popular the new Samurai will be, but I hope Strapcode or someone will make bracelets with an end piece that fits in between the lug like the 007. I think it will look kickass with super engineer. Kinda reminds me of Stowa Prodiver.

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    I like 'em OK; i hear they are kinda big so there's the possibility i totally pass... if i'm not into something else come next purchase time and i can reconcile the size (i'm pretty forgiving) i could see myself MAYBE going for the standard black one.

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    I'm not planning on getting one... if Seiko ever does a reissue of these in the orig size not the bigger new size I'd be all over it..

    I tried on the BL ltd edition one.. it is quite nice.. I have big enough wrists for it .. but having bought the SRP turtle I know everytime I wore it ..I'd be annoyed Seiko can't resist the urge to make historically big watches bigger with the reissues..

    I thought I liked the blue lagoon samurai but the srpb49 and srpb51 are stunning. These new Samurai models are going to be extremely popular imo.

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    I will put it out there: the new Turtle.

    A lot of hype, a lot of initial sales, then many will flood the second hand market.

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    I'm in for the black dial at least but I'll probably buy more; I'm a total sucker for Samurai

    Here's what I've got so far

    Re: The new Samurai thread

    My favorite is the SRPB049. Not sure however if I will order one upon release. It will probably be way too expensive for a 4R36 diver.

    If it is under 400$, I will be tempted, but there are too many misses on this watch to pay more than that (ugly hands vs original Samurai, no 6R15, X on the dial...).

    Cheers,

    Seb
