That Pogue is especially fantastic. Looks mint. Congrats on them all!
Definitely a redial, refurb’d piece at $400.

I just posted this on the Heads Up, and for $9.20 I couldn't resist.

I'm drowning in watches lately so I probably shouldn't keep buying but I just couldn't resist this killer deal. Plus I'm just a sucker for Seiko divers and yet I've never owned a Samurai before. So I'm happy to report I've got a SRPC07 orange Seiko Sammy incoming. I think I might be putting this one on a rubber strap. I had $30 in Macy's money left over from my Bulova Computron purchase which brought the price down to $180 or $192.60 after tax. Plus I earned another $40 in Macy's Money towards a future purchase and will be getting $16.80 cash back from RetailMeNot. Shout out to @BillionaireDoors for the heads up a couple days ago. And also to @uvalaw2005 for the excellent photography below.

Nice purchase! I used to own one of these with the champagne dial but the dial and case were nowhere near this clean. Mine was all scratched up with some brass showing. Do you think this one is NOS or has the case been re-chromed?

I bought my orange samurai last summer. It's such an awesome watch and wears quite well for the size

This one was a true NOS...bought and put into storage with others by a collector. Hard to find watches that go this route, but still some out there.

Wears really well on an Isofrane style or the Crafter Blue that is custom designed for the Samurai.

Edit: Well, scratch this. Just like my SKXA35 order, this one was TGTBT. I actually got a call from PurchaseDirect after emailing them for an explanation. They told me that they never had this in stock and that Walmart messed up the SKU number so this listing was actually supposed to be for a blue dial quartz Movado. Disappointed but on the positive side I am glad they didn't just send me the wrong item and burden me with having to return a watch.

I've never owned a Movado before but that is about to change. Found it for $350 on walmart's site. This one will almost certainly be going on leather. For some reason, purchasing a mechanical chronograph always gives me a sense of unease that I don't usually get when buying a 3-hander. But at this lower than normal price it isn't bothering me too much. Plus, look at that panda goodness....

Not many Movado I would own, but I would happily own this one. Love the panda

Normally not a fan of date windows, but I like how they have that one at 12.
Best of luck on the deal!

Nice looking watch that is. I really like the styling on the date window and how the "chronos" intersect each other.
