    Question Opinions on Avenger II GMT Dial Color

    Hey everyone, I have been infatuated with Breitling as a brand for almost 6 years now, and I decided I would look into the brand as my first luxury watch purchase. I've saved up some money and narrowed down my choice to the Avenger II GMT.

    What I cant decide on is what color dial to go with. I know for sure I am getting the baton dial but I can't decide on the Stratus Silver or the Black dial. Some pictures I've seen make the silver dial look like a cream color and others make it look white. The AD nearest to me didn't have it in stock, so I wasn't able to see it in person.

    Which dial is more versatile, and which one would you guys recommend?

    Great choice, I'd have to go for the Black dial, I prefer it, especially with the red accents.. both nice though..

    I am leaning more towards the black dial the more I've looked at the two, but the silver dial is what initially spoke to me.

    Also, what is the breitling rubber strap called that does not have the branding on it but has the deployant? is it the pro diver?

    The rubber strap with the holes I think is called the Ocean racer, I have the branded rubber strap with deployant on my Avenger Skyland, it's very comfortable and of very high quality.

    I've got the Black and love it. It's volcanic black and often looks like a dark blue.

    With my old eyes the black dial would be my choice. I like the white/cream colored faces but I have a problem in dim lighting being able to read them easily. Then again I am 70 so take that into consideration. Bottom line, I flat out like the black better.

    Recent rubber straps for deployant:

    Diver Pro II - smooth rubber, not sure these are still available new
    Diver Pro III - branded rubber
    Ocean Racer - rubber with the holes

    There are a couple other types that were made for LE models but not common.
