    White-Dialed Sports Watch, Higher End SARB035 Alternative?

    I have a SARB035 which I love and it's my only white-dialed watch on bracelet. I'd like to aim for one more white-dialed watch in the collection--something that I can wear on bracelet that I can dress up or down just like the SARB. I know the standard white-dialed sports watch is the Explorer II Polar by Rolex, and I also know of the Grand Seiko offerings including the Snowflake. The white-dialed IWC Ingenieur is a nice looking piece. Seems like TAG Heuer does white dials just about better than anyone other than Grand Seiko but I haven't been the biggest fan of TAG. Those are all the watches/brands on my radar. What others am I missing? I want to consider all possible alternatives.

    The Vacheron Constantin Overseas and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak would be fine choices...

    What is your budget?

    What about a Rolex AirKing or Datejust?

    Here's one that is white or silver, depending on the light and angle.

    I love white-dial sports watches as well, here's the list that I can think of:

    Orient Saturation 300M Diver white dial (I love this one but it's a BIG watch)
    Fortis B42 white chronograph
    Sinn U1 White
    Breitling Navitimer and other Breitling models have lots of white dial variants
    Chopard Mille Miglia White (Chrono, Time only, Time with PR variants)
    Omega Seamaster GMT 'Great White'
    Omega Aqua Terra white
    Omega Speedmaster Pro Alaskan Project
    IWC Mark XV/XVI Spitfire (not white but cream/silver)
    IWC Portuguese
    Girard Perregaux Laureato
    JLC Reverso Squadra (not sure if it's a sports watch but I guess it qualifies, afterall Reversos were originally designed for Polo players)
    Rolex Datejust/ Turnograph white dial
    Rolex Milgauss white
    Rolex Daytona White

    I'd seriously consider the Rolex Explorer II 16570 'Polar' and if budget allows, the Royal Oak 15202 white and Patek Nautilus 5711 white would be great choices.
