Seiko Prospex Samurai SRPB55
Finally, we get a samurai collection in the United States. The Samurai watch was introduced into the North American market with the extremely limited "Blue Lagoon" limited edition watch. The Blue Lagoon series has pretty much sold out, but we now have three new Samurai to look forward to . This model is the SRPB55. It is a really sharp looking watch. The Samurai watch case is black with gold accents. Very, very cool. The face has a nice hexagon or checkerboard pattern. The hands are similar to that style of a Seiko monster, the case is both simple and interesting to look at.
