    New Green Sumo

    This new Sumo is beautiful - came in yesterday to my small local independent AD
    was not in the market - if its there tomorrow I may be
    Poor pic/lighting doesn't do justice to lovely deep green

    Same beautiful faceted & polished case; same average bracelet that seems a tad too narrow
    but Subtle but Significant improvements: better font choice on bezel markers; great deep colour, better hands, sapphire crystal and upgraded movement with longer power reserve

    This is probably the only Sumo I would consider owning, not trying to sound like a snob or anything, but Iíve never liked the dial colors in combination with their case shapes while this particular one - everything just works on it. Probably because the shade of green is just to my liking.

    Yep, same here GTR - wasnt keen on fonts & hands & colours before - this just seems like a jewel though and everything looks right together

    I believe it should but so far none of the blogs who had a hands-on session mention with it have mentioned it. Still I donít think Iíve seen SEIKO put sapphire on a watch and not give it AR coating, I thought the Emperor Tuna didnít have it, turns out it does.

    Some pics from Monochrome, this dude is one of the best watch photographers Iíve ever seen, he pretty much sold me this watch

    I'd really like to know why they deep-sixed the signed crown.

    Exactly. That seems to be the only downgrade with this new 3rd gen Sumos :(
