If for whatever reason I dislike it, is it easily returnable?

Price is now $413.29. Keeps changing but not by much.

Based on the reviews, this wears like a 42mm vs 44mm spec.

This model is an Amazon exclusive so you get an extra rubber strap. The Long Island model is SRPC07.

Youtube reviewer, Bruce Williams, reveals a misaligned Crown with the guards. This version and the blue lagoon doesn't seem to be affected by this. Some QC issues with Seiko. I'll be checking for this.

The Orange was one of the original Samurai releases. The original Samurai has the 7s movement (non hand winding and not hackeable). This has the 4R movement which overcomes the 7s shortcomings.

I bought this as I own a few Seiko's and the "Samurai" is one of those must haves for me.

Received mine yesterday and will be sending it back. Crown is misaligned and that is all I can see.

Shows 409.48 right now. If I didn't have an Orange Mako, I'd be all over this.

This is a great price point for a quality diver. If you don't need the diver functions (rotating bezel and silicon wrist band), the SARB033 is down to $469 and the SARB017 is $500, both of which are monsters for their price point.

I've only briefly owned another automatic Seiko so don't have too much personal experience with the brand, but really digging this model and the price is pretty damn right. I normally wear a 36 so 44 is quite a stretch so will have to see how it fits.

Don't forget GCR 2.75% cashback.

Is it a screw-down crown?

Is paying $400+ for a Seiko really worth it? For just a bit more you can get a decent Tissot on sale.

Yes, screw-down crown.
I have the black version for a few months now.
Wonderful watch, would be more happy if it's a sapphire crystal though.

For this one. Yes!

Build and Finish will be equal to Tissot, if not higher with better specs (WR etc).
