    One of the benefits of the blue is that it is a chameleon of sorts. That blue dial is so dark that it is easy to appear black, especially indoors, under crappy lighting.



    But in the right light that blue reappears!



    That being said I'm considering swapping mine for a 775.

    I had to go gold, then blue, personally.

    I'd say keep the 775, its my favourite looking turtle!

    Maybe a blue second gen stargate, the dial on those look great

    I have both a 775 and a PADI. I got the 775 first while the PADI was on order. The PADI has much more wrist presence than the 775. I ended up trying to sell the 775, but with all the flakes in my area it has been relegated to its box on the shelf.

    I put the PADI on an Isofrane and it is amazing. Once you get the PADI I think you will agree.

    Nice to have Turtle options. But the blue 773 really scratches my itch.
