I would not buy this watch if it comes with a misaligned crown. That would drive me nuts
Honey, I can't go to bed yet. Somebody is wrong on the Internet!

good price.

Anyone know of a good deal on a Blumo?
depends on the blumo version. The new version is slightly cheaper, around $500 USD

I don't mind the X on the new Blumo. Any good places to purchase this in Canada in CAD $?

Looks like the price continues to fluctuate -- at $408 now.

I scooped this up a few days ago $404 and change and the watch was delivered the next day (Prime). Just had the included special edition rubber strap installed at the Bay, which is nice as it takes a bit of weight off this hefty watch, and I'm pretty impressed with the finish and comfort.

I have pretty small wrists so not usually a big watch guy but it has a curved case and doesn't really wear like one. The orange really pops and there are a lot of really neat little design details. My second Seiko and diver, first Samurai but I can see the cult appeal behind these models.

How's the length on the rubber strap? I find Seiko straps tend to be long, especially for divers. No problem if you have big wrists, but for smaller wrists I don't like the double-wrap look.

The length of the strap really isn't particularly long compared to the average. As I mentioned I also am of the smaller wrist ilk and I don't find it to be a problem at all.

RFD will do that to ya Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

Let me put it this way — I was in no way, shape or form planning (or budgeting) for a watch purchase at all but this seems like a quality, well-made piece that has some collector's value. That's how I justified it, anyways haha.

Very tempting! Don't know if I need another Seiko though. I already have an Orange Monster, Stargate, SKX009, Tuna, MM300 and a few non diving ones lol.
