So I am interested in picking up one or the other, and its been really hard to make a decision. Trust me, theres been a lot of soul searching and researching and here's what I've found:
1.) Similar prices, with the Seaweller being more expensive
2.) The primary features are of no practical use for me. I think the GMT complication is cumbersome considering my smartphone automatically changes the time according to your timezone. With the Seadweller, when I do go swimming, my beer belly spends more time floating than diving.
3.) Very similar case shape and there is minimal difference in the bracelets.
4.) Both are jaw-droppingly beautiful and look high quality.
5.) If anything, the BLNR might be more blingy with the larger bezel, blue color, and polished center bracelet links.
6.) The Seadweller 4000 is a very great update to the Seadweller line, and you can tell it caters to the taste of WIS types. The thin ceramic bezel and 40mm case size is both subdued and blingy. My only concern is that over time I would become bored with the dial.
So what would you do? Is there anyone here who's lucky enough to have both?
