A new treat just got revealed from Seiko USA today: The orange dialed Seiko SRPB97.

The preorder is currently live on Amazon, with the watch scheduled to ship on November 13th. Which is too bad, cause it would have been amazing to have this orange Samurai available for Halloween.

The ‘Orange Samurai’ will come with both a bracelet and a silicone strap. Be aware, this is a USA only, Amazon.com exclusive, so don’t expect to find it anywhere else anytime soon. The preorder cost is $575, with a 10% discount if purchased before November 12th.

Let me know what you think of Seiko’s latest in the comments. Personally, I’ve always like the look of an orange-dialed diver but never been sure if I’d actually enjoy wearing one. About time to get myself a little less pricey orange Monster I think.
