Jeff....In the future you will be selling/trading all your present watches for modern stylish up to date watches. It's a never ending cycle. An incurable happy madness that inflicts the majority of watch fanatics.

You have a bunch of similar-looking Seikos, so I actually support this move. In a broader sense one could argue that the majority of mid-tier dive watches look the same, although I recognise they have their individual little foibles. I've been mulling over a watch purchase recently in my head, but I am cautious because some parts of this watch I want are very similar to one I already have. Is this just because that's what I like about my existing watch? Should I broaden my horizons and go for a different dial colour that represents my playful, rebellious side? Would the initial shock of something different remain appealing or become resentfulness in the months and years to come? I think I am reverting from a ninja back into a "normal" watch lover, and it worries me.

Ulysses, on one hand overthinking ruins the fun; on the other hand, overthinking the watch situation keeps you from buying or at least slows you down. That's probably a good thing. I've wasted way too much money on compulsive buys.

Ulysses: I don't think you would regret buying a watch that is a significant departure from what you normally wear----daring dial color or other features that set it apart. It's good to have a diverse option.

This orange Monster on my wrist as I type this this makes me pretty happy whenever I wear it. I smile every time I put on my "Pepsi" Seiko solar chronograph. I am a proponent of having a reasonable variety of watches for different situations. Playful is good as long as one doesn't go overboard and own every variant of say, a Citizen Nighthawk because of the need to own every variant because of obsessive/completist behavior. But a inexpensive watch with a fun-colored dial or even a crazy yellow G-Shock to mix in with the somber black dial Omega Speedmaster, Orient Saturation Diver, and Ball Engineer in your collection? Sure, why not?
