    Which one to Pick, Rolex BLNR or new Seadweller 4000

    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?

    Considering you have an excellent world timer and no diver in your collection the choice would be easy for me, the SD. Also while I do like the Batman very much the Pepsi is the iconic version. I have always been a big fan of the SD line since it has a date but no cyclops.

    Seadweller, if only for the lack of a cyclops. Lovely looking watch.

    Sea dweller. I really think it is the best all round diver money can buy.

    SD. I like the slender lugs better.

    BLNR....Just to say, I used my old GMT as my dedicated dive watch for years.
