I heard of the "King Turtle" and was checking them out, nice but I'm Turtled out, having a Padi and flipping a "Save the Ocean". Then I discovered they have "King Samurai" as well??

I was never intrigued by the Samurai mostly because of the "industrial" looking case design. Then I saw this one, sapphire crystal and ceramic bezel and the eye-popping white dial,, yowza!

Always wanted a nice White Dial watch, was tempted to get my Seamaster with the white dial but went blue instead, this one is going to fill the bill.

I'm surprised at the sapphire/ceramic upgrades. I actually like the Samurai case but the dial on this reminds of tiling my bathrooms

For USD 595 or 695 (depending on the model), I would be surprised if Seiko didn't include sapphire and ceramic.

Steinhart offers that these days for +/- USD 544 (tax n/i), and Phoibos does it for USD 289...

Wow is right. Whole piece's colors and materials jive perfectly.

It presents the aggressiveness of a SAMURAI and the harmony of KANSO. Arigato for sharing.

It would be a terrific way to add a white dial to the collection Chaz,
and the way the dial is done is intriguing also. o_O(y)It's a way to
get a while dial, but one that is a little different at the same time.
It would be something you didn't have in the collection both in
the color, and the style, or dial pattern I mean. 🙂Plus those nice
upgrades kick things up nicely too !

Yowza is right Chaz. ..Looking forward to hearing how you like it !
Actually think it will really impress. A GIANT congrats ahead of time !!!
