    Does the scratch show on the black (ion plating)? Has anyone experienced it and how bad is it? With the silver, is it safe to assume that scratches will not be that visible, at least relatively.

    Black black or black. Agreed it is more likely to show scratches but I'd argue it will make you take care of this pretty special piece. Scratchy stuff is what beaters are for right?

    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.

    As long as I have to look at those unaligned screws, neither one.

    Funny, I noticed that too, weird considering the rangeman ones look symmetrical and aligned. I'm sure the one I saw in the shop had aligned screws... but I'd have to say that's pretty unsightly for a premium piece with a premium pricetag...

    I'm imagining the screws could be adjusted so they align somehow--say all four arranged horizontally. But it's hard to assume without an actual specimen.

    The silver one for me. Though the PVD one looks cool, here are my rationale:
    1. They are black which looks like a resin band from a distance.
    2. Silver front screws (why, Casio, why?).
    3. I had couple PVD bracelet G's in the past. Once they get scratches, like long scratch on couple bracelet links from being bumped or dragged on hard surface, the silver SS color is revealed like a patch of white on black surface. And they are very visible.
    4. If I want it for a pristine watch, not for go-anywhere type, I'd go for the 30th version.

    Note the unaligned front screws are not bothering me at all. May be I'm not OCD enough.
