    Re: Which Seiko Blue Lagoon model?

    can't really go wrong with either of them, for me at least...

    there are other Samurais coming but these will probably be popular because they seem to be the 'first' relaunch of it.

    i do like the tropical colorway, which to me suits the Turtle case a little better.

    each have pros and cons, but the cons would be more like nitpicks.

    Why not both. Am getting both. Even if I have several blue dials. But I don't have any turtle yet. They will be my third and fourth Seikos.

    Stellar suggestion. It would leave me with three Turtles but a guy could have worse fates.

    Yeah, I ended up with both, because I couldn't decide. Stumbled upon a local store that had both. It's funny, just walked into the store, obviously not a store for enthusiasts, and both were sitting unassumingly in the store display, negotiated a deal for both, under 400 each, just slightly more for the turtle since it comes with the additional rubber. So advice for all bidders, on the "Bay", be conservative when bidding, you can get these models for high 300s to low 400s, don't overbid.

    I had declines on offers of 350 and 375 on the Samurai. Got fed up and paid the $391 ask.

    That is a good price, you probably didn't have to pay tax. I had to on my purchase, and the tax here in SoCal pretty much drove it up closer to what you paid.

    May or may not get hit with import fees (which are mostly sales tax). It's always a crap shoot.

    I love the Sammy but sold my SRP775 couple of months ago and miss it. I picked up the Blue Lagoon Turtle because I like the cushion style case and the fact the crown is at 4:00 o'clock. But in your case, since you already have Turtles incoming, pick up the Sammy

    Picked up my Turtle on this sight BNIB for $395. Didn't really care if it was close to $200 more than regular turtles. Extra Seiko Silicone strap and the amazing color is worth it.
