    I agree as well, keep the 775 and go for a blumo to scratch the blue itch...I regret selling my blumo.

    I originally got myself a GLIT SRP775 after seeing photos of the watch online. It arrived and i just couldn't gel with it so I moved it on. My biggest gripe with the colour scheme was the gold used on the bezel insert. It was far brighter, almost yellow in appearance and I felt it dominated the appearance of the watch. The dial and chapter ring in comparison are a much more subtle shade of gold. I know it sounds silly as it's a small detail but I felt that it really cheapened the appearance of the watch. Then again I am not a gold kinda guy..

    I recently decided to give the turtle reissue another go and this time went for a SRP773. I absolutely love it. It's far more subtle and looks fantastic on dark grey rubber straps. It's certainly going to make a great summer watch. I've already brushed the bezel to tone down the polished appearance, this really brings out the knurling detail and is in keeping with the brushed tones of the topside of the case and gives the watch a more tool like feel.

    I just took these photos to back up the point about its chameleon abilities, it really does change colour! Name:  DSCF6851.jpg
