I've been wearing the Turtle SRPC91K1 for much of the past 2 weeks and very happy with the accuracy about +4 seconds a day and it's very comfortable. I usually prefer a bracelet but as straps go, this is a very nice one. I've never been a fan of the shape of the Turtle case but I thought I'd try it out. I often find a watch grows on me or fades and I never know for sure what I will really like or dislike unless I try it for a while. I like it more than I thought I might, but I'm still not completely convinced. I'll give it a little while longer before deciding if I'll trade it away.
The Samurai SRPC93 arrived last night. It feels right at home on my wrist today. I often miss my old Samurai, an SNM011 (identical to SNM033) with the black waffle dial and simpler hands. This new Samurai is not a direct replacement, but this is a nice variation. I probably have too many black dial watches so this brighter blue is good. I appreciate the 4R35 better movement in this model over the 7S35 in the older one I had. Somehow this doesn't look as thick as I remember the SNM011, but that must be an illusion or bad memory, because it is the same. After half a day wearing it it feels like a keeper. But I still find myself thinking I might also try to pick up another SNM011/SNM033.
At some point I'll set up my photo tent and get some better pictures.
Here are a few pics of my previous Samurai SNM011:
