I think sometimes we over think things. The Squale Tropic has some additional sophistication to it than your average black dial black bezel watch. When I got mine yesterday, my first thought was how nice it would look with long sleeves with and without a suit. I think it just breaks that stoic bland look that most of us think is the status quo. Do you know any of those guys who like to wear loud socks when they dress up? I am not that guy, but my watch can do that for me, at the same time that I remain conservative with the rest of my attire.
