Thread: Show me some colours....

  1. #1

    Show me some colours....

    As I was trying to decide what watch to wear today, I noticed that the dials of all my watches are either black or white (silver, creamy, beige etc…I classify them as the same colour tone). Granted that these are probably the safest/ easiest colours to match with our clothes, the occasion, and even the straps out there, but, what is life without colours……This led me to think of adding some colours into what I have now……(what a great excuse I just came up with)

    So, show me/ us some of the colourful dials you have in your collection – no blacks nor white (as per how I have described above).

    Not sure I know the brand...

    If you thought you could get away with one single "etc.", guess you don't know us. Now: the rest, please...

    Well, I'm not sure digital displays qualify as "dials".....

    Thank you. But - and I don't want to sound pretentious - that's the kind of watch that probably would not match your collection or your tastes.

    Thanks for making me aware of how bland my collection is!


    Grey isn't technically either black or white
    I'll at least give a nice colourful strap to look at!

    Not totally black at least?
