Here is the first paragraph of Momotaro from Wiki -
"[b]Momotarō[/b] (桃太郎[sup][url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Installing_Japanese_character_sets][color=rgb(0, 0, 238)]?[/url][/sup]) is a popular [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hero]hero[/url] from [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_folklore]Japanese folklore[/url]. His name literally means [i]Peach Tarō[/i]; as [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taro_%28disambiguation%29]Tarō[/url] is a common Japanese boy's name, it is often translated as [i]Peach Boy[/i]. [i]Momotarō[/i] is also the title of various books, films, and other works that portray the tale of this hero."
Interesting....but [b][i]Taro [/i][/b]reminds me of the taro root! hahaha! [b] Catalin's Taro.[/b]..hmmmm naw....[b][i]Momotaro[/i][/b] is too long a name IMO hahaha! I still like my [b][i]RONIN[/i][/b] suggestion, once others get to know what it means in the Japanese Samurai world... :P ;D ;D ;D ;D
Catalin said:OK, after 3 days it is pretty much a tie - 1:4 here at SCWF, 9:5 at WUS and 1:2 at PMWF - for a total of 11:11 - but since I voted 3 times for the same choice (once in each poll to start things rolling) and since IMHO most of the people that I know that own one have voted for the 'Black Ninja' I will have to declare that the more likely winner - for the references to small, stealthy and deadly-accurate (vs. the reference of 'unappreciated' in the 'Black Ronin' which still holds true ).
So that's it - I am wearing my own '[b]Black Ninja[/b]' [img]
you might want to check out the already existing, naturally developed (not forced), nickname of the black version of the limited edition Samurai (SNM015):

I have to admit that for some time I was thinking about that and I have immediately posted references to that matter in the other forums once it was raised here - but apparently everybody is referring to those as the Samurai LE (as you just did), and since it is neither widespread, small, stealthy, deadly accurate or anything the other voters (especially on the WUS, and I believe more than half of them coming from HEQ and owners of SBCM023 or other color variations) have decided to just neglect that - for me the last part (widespread vote from actual owners) was the deciding factor (since I have myself started the polls rooting for Ronin, which was suggested initially by Thian).
Anyway of course that 'no name' is also a perfectly good general option for people that instantly remember Seiko reference codes, but I am not one of those (at least not on the long term) and I really need a good name (with some suggestive link in the meaning) for most of my watches to avoid embarrassing confusions :)

I am considering it....
Quite happy with it (and so far it seems to be even more accurate than the JDM 8F56) - there even was like more than one month when I was wearing it almost every dayminidriver said:Catalin, are you still happy with this watch? What's been your accuracy experience so far?
