    Confused Crafter Blue for Seiko SRP779 - Blue looks like black?

    Anyone have a blue Crafter Blue strap for their Seiko Turtle? I just took delivery of mine and I honestly can't tell if it is blue or black. Is their blue so dark that it is almost indistinguishable from black or should it be obvious? I'm wondering if I received black by mistake?

    Based on previous experience with them, the CB straps in blue do almost look black.

    They use a very dark pigment color. In the sun/light it looks blue to an extent, but all other times it seems dark enough to pass off as black.

    I have the same strap as you and because my watch dial is very dark, this works for me, but I could see how others might be confused as it really does look black upon first glance.

    Good luck.
