    How does it wear? Mine should be arriving later this week or early next. I'm afraid it might be too big for my 6.5" wrists though I can barely pull off the Turtle.

    It's bigger that the Turtle. It's a pity I sold my Turtle a few days before the Samurai arrived so I couldn't compare directly (or photograph them together) but I'd say it was wears wider and a little higher but about the same length.

    Yeah i second that. Compared with turtle and sumo samurai bezel is wider though the case may be smaller. So its very high legible and thinner case compared to turtle and sumo.

Size:  1.26 MB You're right, it seems wider than the Turtle but the Samurai looks shorter and flatter. I wasn't expecting the crystal to be so recessed. I actually like how the Samurai looks on my little wrist more than the turtle.

    It's a looker, but I notice a traditional chapter ring misalignment - though very slight.

    I managed to stumble across one for sale in a local watch shop, always like the samurai but never owned one until now.

    Love Seiko as a brand and really like Blue dials, so I bought it. It is one hell of a watch, like it more each day. The quality compared to cost is amazing. I own other watches that cost many times as much but this holds its own. Fantastic thing.

    Took a quick shot above in my work.

    Ditto on Seiko quality vs. cost. I wonder if this re-release will hurt previous model (bloated) prices? I know the SD4K re-release helped the previous 16600 prices back into reality.
