    Most versatile black face watch

    Hi all,

    I had a Breitling colt black face that I loved and could wear in any occasion. Looking for input on other similar watches to consider under 1500.

    Thanks.

    Re: Most versatile black face watch

    For versatility I tend to err on the side of dressy more than sporty because I thing it's easier to dress down a dressy watch more than dress up a sport watch. So I dismissed most all chronos and divers. Which was good because of your budget, as one moves upwards of 3 k there are some of those two types that do double duty pretty well.
    Anyway, I selected my recommendation because:
    Semi dressy. Looks sporty on the bracelet or a distressed leather strap
    Semi sporty. put it on a black croc and it looks ready for a fancy-schmancy suit.
    Pie pan dial with cross hairs. These just give it a lot of visual appeal.
    100 meter WR. Pretty much a versatile depth rating. It'll get you through daily living w/o worry.
    80 hour PR. Because a big power reserve is just, well, versatile.

    The Ball Fireman Victory might be my choice. The Eterna Kontiki is worth a look as well.
