New Samurai

We haven't discussed these much. I thinkImage they look great and will probably pick one up to replace the one I sold years ago.

The dial looks gorgeous! I owned one before too. But, I hope this would be a titanium version.

I really do like these, but kind of wished they would have went with the original handset. Already have a Shogun, so this look just resembles it too much.

I like it but it needs a different handset.

those look good.... the cases old the old models are a nice block of steel.... the Ti were scratch queens.

the Pepsi is very well done. colors look good.

The hands from the Sumo LE (SBDC027) would be perfect.

I always preferred the handset on the original Ti over the skinny hands on the SS. This blue one works for me.

Aren't the new ones jumbo sized? Old size was perfect.

It looks like the exact same case. Wears small for the size.

Interesting. Been a long time since I owned one. Thought I remembered it being more like SKX007 dimensions.

I like the Pepsi version, but will hold out for the 62mas copy.
