    Need Color Combo Advice,...

    Ok, so, I just scored a great deal on the blue matte bezel and strap combo for a GA110-FC-2, I've been wanting a dark blue G for a good while now and just haven't been able to find the one I really want. So, I've decided to build the one I want. Until the GLS100 comes down to a reasonable price i'm gonna put this bezel and strap on a GD110, just haven't decided which model I want to put it on. The all black with neg display has blue lettering on the dial and blue trim around the subdial. Then again, the positive display model has the orange lettering and orange trim around the subdial with positive display. I am honestly more partial to the positive display for ledgibility purposes, only I don't know how the white subdial will look as there is no white anywhere else on the band and bezel set, although the inner dial is chrome and nice and brite, it may look ok. Hoping you guys can give me a little feedback to help in this decision, thanks.

    I think you could go either way, but my guess is it'll look more natural on the negative display with blue lettering. That said, I too prefer positive displays and like the look of orange and blue together (though, that last bit likely has more to do with all of the student loans I'm paying on), so I'd be tempted to go the positive route.

    Helpful answer, eh?

    Because of the blue eye and blue lettering of the negative display, you could say that the blue bezel would look more in synch. But since the bezel also has orange lettering, the positive display with the orange eye and orange lettering would also look good.
    Since I hate negative displays, if it was up to me I would use the positive display.

    Thanks for the helpful feedback guys, After looking at actual pictures of both, the positive display has a little to much chrome action going on and I think is to bright. I pulled the trigger on the negative display. I think it will look really good and can't wait to post up pics when I get it together.

    Sorry for the delay in getting a wrist shot but I thought I had posted up, just a grainy cell phone shot but the dark blue with light blue accents go great together and this is definitely one of my favorite G's.
