Sold my blnr and bought this

And love it!!! Put a miltat 3D Oyster on it (way better than the Seiko bracelet) and it is amazing.

My 4th turtle. I am addicted. As I mention in another thread, selling off my Rolex and other brands as these seikos are awesome. So far, they all have been +/- 5 seconds a day. Canít beat that at $300

I'm thinking of doing the same. I was actually on the hunt for a Hulk but the scarcity got me looking at Grand Seikos, and eventually Seikos, and there're so many yummy goodies out there! I'm going to sleep on it for another week before I unload and exchange.

Man oh man! I 've been eyeing Seiko's too of late, especially the GS.
Turning to be a Seikoholic so much so I bought myself an Ice Monster last week.

Seiko seems to be much more addictive as prices are affordable and sustainable.

Congrats.

I have gone into the Seiko lineup with 6 regular Seiko's and one Grand Seiko. I really like the brand and will the ability to find most models with a discount it is nice. I am waiting to see the new SLA033 at my AD but will probably make the purchase but we will see. The price is the only thing holding me up but I will probably overcome that.

You haven't had a real Seiko unless you have sampled a Marinemaster. It's the Submariner killer.

I'm sorry but I think you are crazy!

Sell a BLNR for a regular turtle?

For the sake of $300 I would have just had both..

I have enough watches. The money back from the BLNR will be used for trips with my son to make new memories with the LN lol. End of day, I like the LN better. One was gonna go for the above reason, it was the BLNR. This turtle is the perfect replacement. Itís a cross of my Bluesy and BLNR for way less zeros. I donít care if no one knows what it is, and Iím not in the watch game for market speculation. Thatís what stocks and bonds are for. BLNR is awesome, but it wasnít for me either.

I have too many watches, too

The idea of selling excess watches and redeploying the moolah has its appeal.

Good luck trying to get one as they have been discontinued and replaced with ceramic bezels and sapphire crystals. And to top it all off...a very prominent ďXĒ on the dial of the watch.

Beautiful !
I picked up what I thought was the same one as yours in Bangkok, but mine appears to have a yellow/black second hand...



the pic doesn't do justice to the depth of the dial at all...
