    negative face

    What's the point of negative face on watch?
    I bought one on ebay and I can't see the thing.
    It's my first negative face watch

    A negative display is first and foremost for the cool, "stealth" look and some say it looks more grown than a positive display (I agree partly with that). The thing is a negative display can range from "piss-poor and barely to read" (GD-100 for instance) to "uber-excellent, rivals most positive displays" (GD-350-1B for instance). Which did you buy?

    It's more for the look than anything I think. And depending on the model, can be harder or easier to read as stated. I like it because the inmates can't read the time off my watch easily if they look at it (I'm their only source of time) in case I need to BS about what time it really is.

    for a comparison, here is a picture of my GD-350-1B. I have never had a problem with reading the time, no matter what the situation. Standing outside while the sun is shining directly ? No problem. Sitting inside, watching a movie in a dark room? Still no a problem.

    The best negative face I've ever seen wasn't actually on a watch. It was on my wife when she found out what I'd been spending on watches...

    I pretty much decided there's no point of getting one at all, the first time I saw a negative display watch in person. But that's just me.

    I wear two negative display Rangeman watches after dark; the negative display is the best visual display of any of the many watches I own.

    Daylight two positive Rangeman watches take their turn in my rotation; these four Rangeman watches are the only watches I have worn for months.
