I am a huge fan of the 4R35 line up of New Samurais and so it has made me want to add one from the original series in titanium. So I couldn't resist picking up on a great deal this 7S25-00D0 SBDA005 orange dial Samurai from July 2005.

She clearly needed some TLC so she got the usual full takedown, ultrasonic cleaning and installing a new crystal. The dial and hand set are immaculate with perfect tangerine hue lume.

As you can see I will be on the hunt for a better bezel and/or insert but she came out nice enough to be a great new summertime beater.

Shown with stable mates SRPC07 'New Samurai' and the Dawn Grey SRPD03 too.

This 7S25 movement has tremendous performance for it's age. Minor tweaking got it to this state in just a matter of minutes on the TG:

That's a Beauty! Congratulations. IIRC both the Black and Blue TI Samurais originally came with Titanium Bracelets. The Orange Sammy was sold without a Bracelet but came with a Rubber Straight Vent Diver strap but with a upgraded Titanium buckle (nicely matching the matte dull grey Titanium of the Watch). I like the Black/Grey/Orange Nato on your Orange Samurai as it really pulls all the colors together. Well Done Sir!

Thanks Kyle it came that way. You are correct the orange dial only came on rubber, I love the New Arnie rubber flat vent with ss keeper and I was considering and may well go that way some day.
