Seiko Prospex SBDA003 "Samurai" Automatic Diver

Today I'm wearing my Seiko Prospex SBDA003 titanium diver, which is usually referred to by its nickname, "Samurai". The titanium Samurai is available in three color combinations and the stainless steel version is available in black and white. I believe the titanium models were only officially available in Japan, while the stainless versions were available in much of Asia, but most models are available online and through eBay. There were also two limited edition versions exclusive to Thailand, one in black and red and the other in yellow. Regardless of color, it is a very unique watch. It has a distinctive, angular case and large, knurled crown, and while it is quite "chunky" its size is quickly forgotten because of its light weight. Not much else to say about this, like all my Seikos it is exceptionally reliable, durable and should last forever with minimal maintenance. Check out the rest of my pictures from today below.
