Samurais are some of the most elegant men in Japanese history. These noble military men represent what it truly means to be a fine warrior in Japan, and they stand as the pinnacle upon which people should aspire to become. The concept of Samurais have gone way beyond the “Land of the Rising Sun” and have fascinated people from different cultures and backgrounds. It has also influenced a lot of retail brands when creating their new products, the most famous of which has become Seiko’s Prospex Samurai SRPB51 watch.

Seiko’s ‘Samurai’ model actually debuted back in 2004 but has since been reinvented as part of the luxury label’s Prospex Divers line. The timepiece actually got its name because of Seiko’s fans as they noticed that the hands look like swords of a samurai. The newly-reinvented Prospex Samurai was released last November of 2017 and each one costs around $394.

Pros

Similarly to how a samurai fights his enemies, Seiko’s Prospex Samurai SRPB51 is extremely clean and pristine. There’s little to no fuss surrounding its minimalist black-and-grey colorway with a stainless steel finish. It’s even best to wear this on a sunny day out as the sunlight shines on them like no other. The watch is also amazingly durable, having 200 meters in water resistance and over 41 hours in power reserve—it can withstand almost anything. Furthermore, the timepiece is also said to be quite light, making it the perfect watch to spend an outdoor day with.

Cons

Despite its lightweight and sleek appearance, the watch is also quite bulky. Although it won’t weigh as much on one’s wrist, there is a certain uneasiness in wearing it as it is quite a hefty silhouette. Additionally, as far as modern timepieces go, Seiko’s Prospex Samurai SRPB51 leave a lot to be desired. There’s little to no new aesthetics nor modern designs that will help it stand out against its competitors and other watches in Seiko’s range. Although the black-and-grey colorway is there to evoke refinement, it’s also quite boring and makes the watch look somewhat benign.
