    That's good information - I am unlikely to be able to see one without ordering it. If the dial and chapter ring is the same blue as the bezel insert, I'm interested! I've been wanting a blue watch. Thanks!

    Every pic of the blue I've seen, it's unmistakably blue. I could see how people would be confused about the Pepsi, because it has a black dial, but the all blue model was always all blue.

    Here's an example of why I asked the question. The chapter ring is definitely blue, but the dial is ambiguous. Could be blue, could be black - but it definitely does not appear to be the same blue as the bezel insert and chapter ring.

    That's the mark of a good blue dial. It will vary from black to light blue depending on the light.

    The solution for me might be to just take the risk and order one.

    Sorry, you misunderstood me. The dial is always blue. It will appear different shades depending on your perception in different conditions, angles etc. It's the mark of quality manufacturing and adds variety to a watch.

    The best blue dial I ever saw was by FP Journe. I've never seen the same two shades of blue in photographs. It's a bit out of the price range of these turtles though, and you can't take it underwater.

    No, I understood you! By risk I mean whether I'll find the color to be pleasing, not that there is variation from watch to watch.

    My Strapcode Endmill fits! I used the shoulderless Seiko fat bars that came with the watch (instead of the D-Flanged little tipped ones that come w/the Strapcode). And it just clicked on in, nice and tight!....whoalaaaa!

    Excellent! You're making it hard to avoid picking one of these up.

    I get you now. Considering how new these are, you could easily re-sell this without much loss if you didn't like it.
