From the manufacturer
The story of Seiko began in 1881, when a 22 year old entrepreneur, Kintaro Hattori, opened a shop selling and repairing watches and clocks in central Tokyo. Today, after more than 130 years of innovation, Kintaro Hattori’s company is still dedicated to the perfection that the founder always strove to achieve.

Have to comment on the orange dial - does look very similar to the amazon pics, i'll try and load up some pics later and provide an update on the watch one worn for a week or 2.
After a few weeks wearing this - it has grown on me, quirks and all. I line up the bezel by a half turn, so not perfect, but that overcomes the alignment issue without too much fuss. The fit is great - quite chunky and robust - but due to the short lugs doesn't feel huge. The orange dial is a matte colour - and super clear. I even read someone thought the colour was salmon-like in some light (in natural light I can see what they mean) So there is it "The Salmon Samurai!"
So 4 stars overall, 1 star off due to the bezel.

this Seiko 'Samurai' srpc07. A beautiful, certified divers watch. 200ml water resistance with a built-in divers extension in the bracelet. Nice automatic movement with the 4R35 and a hefty weight. And the band is probably one of the all-time longest bracelets I've ever received. I took the four position micro adjustments down to the smallest and it still is a bit big. The lumibrite on this watch is absolutely stunning and outstanding. It's the lume that dreams are made of. 🌹 And speaking of dream, the orange tone is almost a cream colored orange. Exceptionally similar to the Seiko Orange monster in color! Depending on light source and angle, it has some interesting properties. This set of hands qualifies for the Rocket optical illusion. That's when both the minute and the hour hands are at 12 position it actually looks like a rocket ship. 120 click unidirectional bezel is really totally solid and 100% aligned, as is the chapter ring that meets perfectly with the markers. Just such an exceptionally well made watch. It is not sapphire glass but it does feature Seiko proprietary Hardlex Crystal. Which is not as breakable as Sapphire but not as scratchable as plastics or lucite or regular glass.
the steel bracelet is very well made and I believe it has solid end links that are attached right up to the body of the watch. You could see just over the end link showing the stainless steel shiny Park against the bus greater part of the case and matching bracelet. The profile from the sides is like a samurai's traditional soldiers in the wardrobe. Otherwise why is it called Samurai :-)? The class is a stamped steel class but very well done with the fold-over lock and the two buttons side lock. But more than that and really quite invisible and ingeniously done, is the divers extension. you'll have to get a tip of a fingernail just under the right place and I even had to look up on YouTube to see exactly how and where, and suddenly the watch is almost an inch longer. It's very solid to talk back in and come back out. The design is totally brilliant and yet so simple. The back of the watch as various markings including the tsunami waves. This nickname of Samurai is a great name. And the illumination of this watch is one of the outstanding features set Seiko brings to the forefront of today's modern watches. I need to adjust the bracelet because it was so long enlarge that even bringing it down to the tiniest of the for micro adjustments on the bracelet itself, it's still wags about on my very large 7 points 7.625 inch wrist.otherwise if that doesn't do the trick then I'll have to have the link put back because the watch isn't comfortable enough to where for me, at all. Is wags around and hits the bone of my wrist and generally annoys my wrist. I understand that like the turtle, which is about the same size but certainly a different shape, this is so similar to that shaped that it should settle into a comfort level but I believe it's because it's too loose on me that I find it constantly annoying. All my other saicos including thebottle cap that I also picked up through Amazon here, are all very comfortable so this one needs to be adjusted for sure. Let's Seiko watches they have a nice pin and collar type of arrangement in their links however the color is often so tiny that it gets lost and then you can secure the link properly so if you're not certain he's absolutely certain about it and take it into the watch guy and watchmaker for just a couple of bucks and have it done right.
The manufacturer of this watch is exceptionally well done and other than the floppiness of being too large that is of constant annoyance for me until I have it properly adjusted oh, it's a real nice piece of timekeeping machinery. And illumination is a real great light show! :-)
of note is the for r35 movement. It's the next step in the generation of the automatic movement that's being in there watches for almost 20 years and is highly successful and robust. I have several watches with this movement and some of them are the Seiko watch brand as well and they have variable X of keeping time... A few are too slow and one Seiko is actually one of the slower ones and another Seiko and others are a bit too fast. Only one keeps perfect time but unfortunately the case was very badly made compared to saicos cases which are superb as is all the finishing on the watch. you could have just the time of slower fast yourself if you're good with the time grapher but I recommend once again take it to a watchmaker because this is a fine instrument and not to be messed around with by amateurs.
I'm surprised and quite disappointed in fact that this brand new watch movement and brand new watch isn't that adjusted better than it is because it's running fast at about 8 to10 seconds in less than 14 hours. It's the worst of all the clones with the same movement and seiko's that I have that have this movement of which there are several. as watches can be adjusted for their timing in several positions but most average watches are just as only in one or two positions and not the six usual better adjustment, that doesn't mean that they should keep time this badly. If it's almost 10 seconds off in about 14 hours that means is close to being not that good Ennis time synchronization adjustment before it left the factory. the watch says Japanese movement so it's not made and adjusted in Japan but done elsewhere. It's snowing that Malaysia is one of the bigger producers of assembling Seiko watches but we here now that it could be also in China. From my experience China does a great job. so right now I have a negative about it being running too fast far too fast for any Seiko branded watch with this movement and the bracelet being so huge that I can't imagine anybody not having to adjust this bracelet other than a giant. It best serves the needs of collecting extra links being this riddle length of watch band bracelet.
Even though the white hands has a black outline, White against tail orange is not the easiest background and contrast to easily see the time. It certainly is an amusing color combinations but in consideration now I think it would be a little bit up to in serious and regular business and office situations and would be more suitable for a beach life coloration.
This watches going into the consideration for being returned category.
Also of note was that there was an outline zerks not grease around the case very close to it it was sort of greasy but not quite because it didn't blow off like powder. Maybe somebody use some cleaning material on it and there was no protective plastic sheet on the front of the face only the back OverWatch. That also gave me pause for consideration of why there would be substance on the watch itself that needed to be wiped off even if it was with finger-tip and Kleenex. Also the special from Amazon from which I got this has two possibilities. The series of this same watch ending in 97 comes with a black rubber divers bracelet and the 07 this one comes only with the steel bracelet. However I saw that online it shows a promotional posts also coming with this but there was none. Perhaps because the pricing was extra special as it was an Amazon special price.
. Be I'll try to wear it around the home more to get used to it because they will not take it outside in real life until I know I'm keeping it for sure. It is an amazing piece of watchmaking, that's for sure! now I know I did more expensive prices, Seiko does use sapphire crystal for the face of the glass of the watch so they're sticking to the hardlex crystal at about a $400 price point is a little disappointing. Hardlex get scratched up far more easily hands down, then any quality of sapphire front glass. Of note is that the hardlex crystal is slightly recessed with a bezel being maybe a 32nd of an inch higher then the face of a glass which is a flat glass, FYI. Oh yeah and another thing, the knurling on the stem of the watch is very very well done and easily grips cuz it's sharp enough. However screwing goat the screw down stem, it feels a little bit gritty and it's reading down by the end where it's finally locks, both screwing it out and screwing it back in. You definitely feel a roughness at the last point of it. And on the bezel itself which is a very solid 120 units directional clicking bezel and when I listen to it carefully you could hear a series of two clicks as so there's more than one retention slide spring inside... However the knurling on the bezel side although pretty is not as edgy and easily grips as the watch them. In fact it's a bit too firm and difficult to turn on my watch. Perhaps other watches are set a bit more easily turning for the bezel. remember, it's a Japanese movement but not Japanese made. So you do save a few dollars if they have both versions however there are little things that makes all the difference in the world, when it comes to Seiko's watches. This one is no exception..
I'm in Canada. I bought some the Canadian Amazon website. The website says it's a 3-year warranty with Seiko. And there is a warranty card and book it inside. Unfortunately the warranty card is absolutely blank and not filled up by any seller and feels like an on authorized watch true gray Marcus. And I say so-so with a an additional observations that on the other side of the card it says 1 year warranty from Seiko and then the second and third year warranties from Seiko Japan directly. And then it finally says this warranty only applies in the United States of America. And I am in Canada and I purchased this watch from the Canadian Amazon website.
I resize the watch band and it's it's beautifully even with it serious half and larger size. I don't know how they make this so comfortable but it's perfect. The bezel is still very difficult to turn and it's at least 10 to 15 seconds fast everyday. That's easier to adjust send slow as you just stop the time with the built-in hacking and wait till the seconds catch up and press the stand back in. But I'd wish it would be not so far off the mark although it is within the given parameters by the Seiko company. Personally I think that's just an excuse for sloppy watch adjustment. Overall I would give the watch a four and a half out of five but the granular feel of putting back in the stem into the screw down locked position and the difficulty of moving the bezel are significant points. I'm sure if this was the japanese-made version it wouldn't have these issues. This is the Japanese movement version which means it's assembled in either Manila or China. And China would probably do a better job so I'd say Manila and the Philippines where a lot of Seiko watches are put together.value-for-money bang for the buck, as ships and sold by Amazon although no longer here on the Canadian side, it was definitely well price when I do comparisons the u.s. sites and the general market. Seiko is jacking up their prices very quickly so this was I believe a Canadian intro price - so thank you Amazon.
The watch: I love this watch. I'm not for the soft pudgy lines of the other Seiko divers - this one is angular and means business. Showed it to my son who's not into watches and the first impression was "retro". Just the right size for 7 1/8 wrist. I've wanted an orange diver for quite some time, and this does not disappoint as for me the colour is pretty much perfect. Either QC is going up, or I got very lucky here too. All indices line up perfectly. I've found that it loses 2 - 3 seconds per day on the wrist, and if I leave it face up at night it gains 2 - 3 seconds. Honestly, I've had it for 3 weeks and it's currently -1 second overall. That's just crazy for any mechanical watch. It is on the heavy side with the stainless bracelet, but to me it looks great and have no plans to change it. I do dive occasionally, and this will be on the wrist next time I go in the water replacing the old skx.
Watch is very hefty in a nice way. I have fairly thin wrists and because of the drop lugs, it still fits my wrists very nicely. Bezel is aligned on mine. The bracelet was surprisingly nice, I was surprised that they used solid end links.
I thought it would look more refined than my other Seiko but rather it reminds me of the utilitarian Monsters.
Great as a casual watch, at the beach or, in jeans. Not my 1st choice with a suit.
Those replacement NATO straps must popular with those that can't size the bracelet. Which is an absolute nightmare!
Looks great with the bracelet or nato straps
Love the look a definite keeper.
