Thank you, John (Conjurer)

There are several Seiko's I've stalked quietly for years, casually checking the Bay and WUS sales forum and hoping to luck out. One of those was the orange Shogun, SBDC009 - probably the nicest orange diver Seiko has ever made.

John was kind enough to offer me the watch, and I'm honored to have it after being in the hands of two of the finest Lords before me (Conjurer, Robatsu).

I've always felt the Shogun is one of the best watches available under a grand, and I've owned the watch twice over the past several years. As I own several of Seiko's higher end diver offerings, my watchbox was crowded with black dials so my Shoguns found new homes.

But I always felt the orange Shogun is a keeper, the vibrant orange dial contrasting wonderfully with the grayish diashield titaniun, and with its extremely comfortable bracelet. And the Shogun itself is just an exquisitely designed dive watch, with its angular good looks pulling from the Samurai's of old.

And now, thanks to a damn fine Lord, I get to enjoy a piece I've admired from afar for years.

Thank you, friend!

You're welcome, Mr. Gage. I could think of no other Lord who would be as good a custodian of this watch than you.

FWIW, in all my years of scouring shops/secondary markets in Japan, with this one on my mind for years, this is the only one I ever saw offered anywhere. Definitely the scarcest Seiko I ever pursued. And Shoguns are dreamy...

I don't know why I sold it, one of those times when I say I'm going to sell everything and I only sell one or two things and at least one of them an important/rare piece to show myself I mean business.

Pretty cool to see whose hands this is going through.

I really couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

The problem with the Shogun for me was always the surplus of black dialed divers I own, so to have this piece in orange is literally perfect.

Definitely one I keep safely locked away when not wearing. But I appreciate the opportunity to own this awesome watch, and the lineage of ownership makes it even more special to me.

I have nothing to add except I have never heard of the Shogun. Awesome looking diver :-)

The Shogun punches way above it's weight. Literally. Nice one Gage.
