Product details

First unveiled to the world in 2004, the Samurai is the complete opposite of its sibling, the Turtle, which is all about round shapes and smooth surfaces. The Samurai is a modern designed watch, without vintage inspiration and with corners all around. Sharp, powerful, almost aggressive, this design found its audience until the brand removed it from its collection in 2008, before its comeback in 2017.

The case of this limited edition model is 43.8mm in diameter with a height of 12.8mm. The shape is also identical to the classic King Samurai, with sharp corners all around, angled lugs, and a pointed crown case, with a crown classically placed at 3 o'clock - and not at 4 o'clock, like many Seiko dive watches. Other features have also been retained, such as the screw-down crown, a screwed case back, and a water resistance of 200 meters.

The side of the bezel, reminiscent of the diamond patterns on the hilt of a Japanese sword, displays a finely meshed pattern, and the insert here is made of black glossy ceramic. New to this limited edition is that the 60-minute scale is executed in two different shades of gold, with the first, all-important 15-minute section being brighter than the rest of the scale. Furthermore, the watch (like all other King models) features a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating and a magnifying glass above the date window, replacing the date display.
