    wow, a lot more than the 2018 save the oceans samurai from the previous deal.

  • +1 vote

    It would be super deals if they could go down to $3xx!

    •  

      They just might if you are prepared to wait a couple of years.

        not sure about waiting a couple of years, the samurai and turtles are becoming an “new model every year” product, almost making them something people collect. after all, how do grow a limited market that competes with wearable tech and new generation of consumers who are into phones, you turn your customers into repeat customers. especially if you limit supply to 12 mths of a model. they did it with some models in the 200m monster range.

        the save the oceans was my 2nd samurai ($329) missed out on blue lagoon.

        i might buy the shark model for $3xx , but not at $5xx.

        problem with auto watch is you cant pick it up and go if you haven’t worn it the day before as time needs to be reset if power reserve is depleted and some power added. too many autos and i find my quartz models gets worn the most as i just pick a model fo that day and its ready to go.

        can’t be bothered with an auto winder …..too many watches for that.

        •  

          You raise some interesting points, but I don't know if I agree with Seiko competing with tech companies.

          Limited or special edition variants of a series are appealing to the collectors and perhaps somebody looking for something a little bit special, but these are generally cosmetic and don't change the function of the watch itself. Most people who would consider something like a Seiko are not going to have a large collection. A colleague has recently flipped his Apple Watch for a Samurai and is quite content with that being his only watch, with the ability to dress it up or down with a couple of straps. He found the daily charging quite annoying, especially when forgetting to charge it just once meant no watch the next day.

          The 2018 STO Samurai went for $427 on a previous sale post, which was the lowest it's ever been and also at its end of supply, so I would not expect to see this 2019 drop anywhere under $430 in the near future. Perhaps when the 2020 model is announced.

          I am finding my Solar Tuna's and other quartz watches on my wrist most days recently, and like you, it's the convenience of not having to set a time and date every time between wears. There is always the opportunity or day where I'd want to pop my automatic of choice on my wrist, so they are something that I know I'll always want to keep in my collection.

    I'm waiting for the SNJ025P :) … about 3 months to go!

    I can hold out for a while hopefully it goes down to around the same price as the previous STO Samurai, I'm not sure which one I like better.

    •  

      i have the sto and will get the shark …..when it gets as cheap as the sto did at one point.
      seiko would love to replicate the success of the blue lagoon, but the blue lagoon came with added value in the rubber and stainless band in the box besides looking cool.

    Hi OP,

    I like the Samurai model, but I can not see any significant advantages from 2019 model over the 2018's one than the price 5xx vs 3xx
    Could you please point them out?

    • +2 votes

      It's not so much any advantages per se, as internally it's the same 4R35 movement and case shape, just visual design changes to the existing Samurai STO series.

      1. The dial has changed from the blue whale ventral pleats to the new ocean waves with the shark fin
      2. Second hand has changed from the standard Samurai hand to the one with the fin counterbalance
      3. PVD no longer applied to the crown and bezel as per the 2018 SRPC93K
      4. Availability - the 2018 is becoming harder to buy new - in AUS at least - as Seiko have ceased producing them.

      Like anything new, you are buying the latest design, hence the price tag is higher than the model it supersedes.

    Great post OP, and big thanks to Starbuy for refunding my purchase and letting me purchase again with these codes. They were great to deal with.

      Seconded. Have been messaging back and forth about one of these models and they have been nothing but helpful and accomodating. Fantastic customer service

      •  

        Which one are you interested in? I've ordered both the autos.

        •  

          I went for the sammy. Tried both on at the seiko store and I just don't understand the hype around the turtle. The case shape didn't sit well on my wrist. They only thing I really like about it is the kanji day wheel that the japan versions have

          •  

            @quietsarcasm: Awesome!

            I can't wait to see the dials in person. I don't usually buy a watch without trying it, but these just look so classic.

            If I enjoy these I think I'll get the chrono to complete the set.

              @newtsy: The dial is fantastic in person. The bezels also have a subtle texture of concentric circles that doesn't show well in photos but looks great.

              I hope you will like them as much as I do :)
