    Maple Jewellers in Ontario is showing the Blue Lagoon Samurai on Kijiji, if you're still looking.
    Might be worth a call to see if they have any in stock.

    Without asking, the dealer gave me a price of US$315 which I thought was a deal. I looked it over carefully for the well known nits on this model. First, the alignment between the bezel, chapter ring and dial seemed to be pretty good but there may be a slight offset at 1, 2, 8 and 9. It was not significant enough to put me off. Second, there is this issue of the crown spacing between the lugs. This one was perfect. It seems to be running at -13 to -15 sec per day so far. This 4R35 movement is supposed to have a range of -30/+45. Its a chunky piece but I like the waffle texture dial and 2 tone bezel. Overall, its seems like good value for the money.
    Nice! I got the same one in town, got it for $330 CDN before taxes from Seiko AD in town.

    Thanks Paphman! Seiko certainly offers some striking designs at a very solid value.

    Thats a great deal...Samurai re-issues seem to sell in the $300-350 usd range. I paid around $490CDN for my Padi Samurai, although it did come in a pretty cool Padi special edition waterproof case.
