Afternoon Bushcrafters,

For sale is a blue dialled Seiko Samurai SBDA003 in titanium - this is one of the proper original Samurais, rather than more recent steel reissues. The original owner replaced the crystal with a slightly domed sapphire. Purchased from Gary on here back in the middle of 2018.

I sent it to Tempus Watch Mods six months ago to get it secured for diving, and also asked him to perform a health check to see if it ought to be serviced, and it didn't, with amplitude of 276 and +10 seconds per day. He also replaced the gaskets and pressure tested it for worry free swimming and diving - tested by Paul to 110 metres for 30 minutes.

I have only worn it a couple of times since its visit to Tempus, and I've checked the accuracy over the past few days and it is still at +10 spd.

Beautifully light to wear on account of the titanium, and with wrist presence because of the angular case design and the gorgeous, variable blue dial. Bezel action is lovely and positive.

As you can see from the photos, there are marks to the bracelet and case to be expected with a wearer piece of this age.

Comes with the yellow and black box with cushion, outer white box (a little tatty as you can see), two hang tags, warranty card, booklet and two spare links.

Yours for £445 via BT with delivery by RMSD.

Bump for this.

It's important to note that the case design means it hugs the wrist very nicely, thus suits a smaller wrist as well as a larger.

I've had this for a year and a half and not once felt it was out of place on my 6¾'' wrist.
