Neither. But sick and tired and found a grail but don’t have the cash.

Do I flip my BLNR towards this? Decisions...

I’ve always preferred the ceramic version with orange accents.

See I think the orange one looks bland. Although I’d prefer the ceramic case.

I wish I could just rent this for the summer...

Sweet! It’s at least cheaper than the Ford Edge Sport I bought for my wife by $100.

To each their own, but even if I hit the Lottery I wouldn't buy or wear a watch that cost that much.

This. Long struggled between this and a 15400 for my “grail” dive watch. Well, those and a 126660 now.

But seriously - that carbon is super nice but for almost half, I’d do the ss diver.

If I do SS I’d get a 15710 for the same money. But would need a bracelet.

I have both this and the ceramic, and I find myself wearing the carbon more. The yellow pops more, and the carbon case feels better on the wrist. Do it......!

Does anyone else have the SS Diver and/or Carbon? I’ve long wanted the SS but the carbon just seems so cool. I agree the price difference is staggering, and I’d have to flip my BLNR, DSOTM and something else to get the Carbon.

Interesting. And you don’t find the SS kind of plain in comparison? I think if it had a black bezel it would pop more. It’s the same thing that turns me off from the new Tudor black bay steel.

Yes, I have the SS Diver as well, both in the black dial and blue dial / yellow accents boutique combination as well. The SS wears notably bulkier due to the additional weight.

Fwiw, it would be hard for me to give up a BLNR for the carbon or any AP diver. I wish I have a 116710 now...it's just so comfortable! I love AP, but by far I wear Rolex the most on a daily basis.

GEEZ dude. Your AP’s alone cost about as much as my first house! :)

Don’t get me wrong, I love the BLNR. I have that, a Hulk and SD4K. But I can get another BLNR fairly easily (or even Hulk for that matter). The FC is becoming a rare bird.

Can I borrow it for the summer? :)

Ah, that makes more sense. I love the 116610LV and 116600 as well - never letting mine go. Funny you mention the Rolexes - I'm wearing a 126600 as we chat.

Come to SoCal for vacation - try on the APs and we get Korean bbq after !

Late to the party, but after having an SS, I’d do it WAY over the carbon. IMO, you’re not getting double the watch for double the price with the carbon.
