    stainless steel bank silver face...is it me or does this make the watch look girly or feminine?

    A silver face stainless steel band watch would round out my collection but i cant get over the fact that it takes away from the masculinity of the watch

    I think it's you. You are referencing a classic combination as feminine?

    If it was a diver or something like that it would not be; in fact if it looks good and isn't small, it won't be.

    Do you have a particular model in mind? We could all take a vote....

    I agree with everyone else. Look at an Omega Aqua Terra for example... Not much feminine about that watch.

    A silver dial and stainless steel case and bracelet is one of the all time classic color combinations ever made. Most companies including Seiko, Omega, Rolex, IWC, Citizen, etc., have made watches like that over the decades. My very first really nice watch was a new 1971 Omega Seamaster automatic that I still wear. If anything men are attracted to a monochromatic style more than women. My wife has to remind me to try other colors than silver, black and blue!

    edit: Here's a couple from my collection.
