    I have that one coming in except I opted to change the O-ring pepsi bezel for a Ceramic C3 Triangle bezel insert. Was actually considering transplanting that dial and handset into my Samurai SRPB55 but if the bronze is decent quality it may stay as-is. I will say that it better be good because these are more expensive than their mm300 and 62MAS homages. Heck it costs more than the real Samurai with the same movement!

    Its in the air to USA customs now....

    So you’re thinking of swapping your seiko dial and movement to the bronze case.i had thought of that too. IMO the quality looks to be on par with Helson and I would put them up against nearly anything. I guess we will see in a few days.

    I'm not sure. I think I may just get them in and do a side by side. If they are equal to Helson then the casework will be much better than the Seiko. I think the MM300 dial and hands and ceramiz bezel will be awesome on the black SRPB55 case though. part of me wonders if the bezels themselves are a 1:1 swap and what a bronze bezel would look like on the black ion case.

    Not sure what to do with the bronze case other than buy a different dial and mod it to something else. I would love a tuna dial with grandfather tuna hands on that bronze case.

    Of course if the Proxima is that excellent as is I may sell the Seiko and call it good.

    Now to decide what band. I have a brown thick leather coming and another canvas on leather already too. I’ll probably give it a full patina after a couple days.

    The standard version but I swapped the sapphire Pepsi bezel for the ceramic C3 gold bezel with the triangle 12 o’clock marker (like on their mm300 homage). Mine hit LA over the weekend. Hopefully will arrive in Texas this week!
