    Emperor (SBDX011) is a little larger than Darth (SBBN013) in every measurable dimension except lug width which is the same but the lug design is completely different. Empy's shroud is hard coated Ti and Darth's shroud is ceramic.

    From SCWF:
    Did some hard core dig'n and found a couple comparo shots. Looks like the Emp has a bigger belly! :P

    The Emperor is 52mm x 54mm x 17.4mm 147 grams. The fact that the shroud is longer over the strap is what makes it 54mm.

    Darth is 50mm x 50mm x 15.3mm 114 grams.

    Cheers

    Great thread. I have a Sawtooth but am tempted by a Tuna. Has anyone owned/compared both? I have read the specs/dimensions, but what are peoples thoughts on the differences?

    I've handled a Sawtooth before, but have not owned one myself. The Sawtooth is a sleeker design and is a solid watch, but you can really tell where the extra cost is in the Tuna. It really is the ultimate Seiko quartz diver.

    I have an 015 Tuna and some Sawtooths.
    Sawtooth is an amazing shrouded design in its own right but its very different from the Tuna line.
    (It slightly irritates me that so many people (not you!) seemingly feel the need to align every lower end shrouded Seiko with the Prospex Tuna line)

    The shroud design of Sawtooth has a much more integrated and tapered look to it, giving the impression that its part of the overall case much more. Tunas proudly state their separate shroud much more obviously in a more "tool" like manner, so to speak.
    (I think the soon to arrive LE SD Tuna also has a slightly more integrated and angled looking shroud compared to other Tunas.)


    Like Sawtooth, on the wrist 015 wears smaller than its dimensions but it does so in a different way compared to Sawtooth.
    015 has virtually no lug length helping to "shrink" it on the wrist. Sawtooth has lugs but they are beautifully curved to wrap around your wrist helping it also to wear smaller and much more comfortably than its dimensions suggest. There are many other differences, too numerous to mention but suffice to say they are very different and imho they are both outstanding performers in their respective categories.


    Imho the shroud finishing/brushing on Sawtooth was the most consistent and beautiful that i ever saw on a Seiko diver around its price point.

    I often say if Sawtooth had been sold with an Auto option (like Knights) it would undoubtedly have joined the ranks of Seiko's most legendary vfm divers!

    Sorry i don't have pics of them side-by-side.
