For $180.00 I’ll take the textured dial.

Agreed. Glad I didn't jump on the Amazon exclusive now. Better dial for way less money.

I cancelled my order once I was able to get the orange NAFT built.

That orange NAFT makes my pants fit a little tighter

I’ve got two Samurai out at Duarte now. Not sure I have room for an orange one, too.

I just corresponded on Facebook with Marc from Island Watch. Apparently the new orange Samurai (SRPC007) doesn’t have the textured dial and is in fact identical to the amazon exclusive SRPB97, minus the rubber strap.

Seiko offers too many models and too few of them are really good.

That’s a great deal. Still full price on the US site.

Hmmm that's nice. I'm short on orange, maybe that'll be a Christmas gift for me. Though I'd been thinking of picking up a blue lagoon...

Down to $434.00 on Amazon with bracelet and strap. I’m glad I cancelled my order.

I knew this would eventually happen and is why I never placed mine.

Does anyone own the orange samurai now that it’s come down a bit?

Might get one, send off to Duarte for crystal and be done with it.
