    Break your own rule, get the PADI AND keep the 775. You'll have two stunning looking watches.

    I think the 775 will age much better. As always, I'd say keep it unless you really need the money.

    It's the super oyster from strapcode that comes with the glidelock. I then had the clasp engraved.

    It's a personal choice, obviously. Go with your heart but I certainly wouldn't trade a perfectly good Turtle in one color for another unless I was absolutely sure. I don't care for gilt anything in my watches and adore my modded 773 with MM300 hands.

    I heartily approve the Sumo option . It is an amazingly nice watch that looks ten times better in person than photographs. On an Crafter Blue strap, which really sharpened the look, in my opinion.

    Lastly, don't be afraid of Hardlex. I've owned a dozen Seiko divers from SKX to Tuna and haven't scratched one yet. It's a lot tougher than the forum postings would have you believe.

    I'm in LOVE with my 779! I am a little jealous of the PADIs because of that brilliant dial, but I like the matte black dial and how it works with all sorts of straps. I've thought about selling everything and only keeping the 779 and just pick up a solid grail watch.

    Keep the 775, it will always remain classy and will be a classic.

    The Padi is lovely but IMHO will not age in the same way, since is a lot more colorful and the dial is too charged with text.

    By the way, that's a fantastic shot.
