    Blue vs Black dials

    I can’t decided between blue or black (on a bracelet) for my next purchase. I have two blues already and only one black dress watch. Looking for a dressy casual watch.

    Which in your opinion are more versatile for everyday wear as well as with a dark grey and navy suit?

    My experience over the years black or white dials will go with any form of dress.

    What he said. Like o lot of us, I've got a pile of black dials, so blue is attractive as an addition to the collection. However, black is the more classic and versatile.

    Every man should have at least one stainless and black. It may sound boring, but trust me it looks great and its looks remain relevant for a long time.

    Black is more versatile.

    I'm a blue dial guy, but in your circumstance I'd go black.

    Re: Blue vs Black dials

    Blue is the new black. Blue dials have been around for a while but the number of brands offering blue dial models has increased. Why? Because men’s fashion has changed. Guys are more inclined to wear a dark blue suit these days than a black one. And blue denim is increasing worn with an open collar dress shirt in business casual work settings. Blue dials watches also look great on the wider range of strap colors now available because blue is a primary color. Bottom line, blue dials are more versatile today than black.

    If its a deep blue dial, especially if its metallic, then the blue has more personality. Think Monta Triumph blue. However if its a matte bluer blue like the Tudor Pelagos, then black dial for sure. It really depends on the shade and finish of the surface.

    Never considered the fact that as a primary color, it’s ability to match various straps is wider. Thanks!

    Re: Blue vs Black dials

    Since you already have two blue dial watches and one black dial watch in your collection, you may want to think about adding one more dial colour to your collection and that is a grey dial watch. And, they come in a variety of colours from medium steel, light silver, matte graphite to deep charcoal. Plus, they are quite versatile with everyday wear, as well as, with a dark grey or navy/blue suit.

    - Just something for you to consider.
