    Re: Picking a Seamaster

    My two cents.
    Both look great. I’ve tried on all three colors (haven’t tried white dial). Like they said before, blue is the one most people will probably get. The gray dial with blue is different and a “new” color combination. Personally I like the blue dial more on bracelet and the gray dial on the blue rubber. The blue rubber/gray dial combo is fantastic! If you already have blue dials, consider the gray. If you don’t have blue dial watches then it is a tougher decision. At the end, the blue one might be easier to sell if you eventually tire of the watch. Emphasis on “might” because it could be the same or maybe the gray one ends up being hotter. But right now, blue is the more popular choice. There is no wrong choice.

    I find the grey weird looking. I would definitely go with the blue.

    My vote goes to the blue. I think the blue will have a longer appeal over time than the grey.

I have the grey dial aqua terra which is a similar tone and I dont wear it very much due to the colouring of the dial. The blue is pretty funky but its a strange shade of blue. It seems to have a slight green (teal?) tinge to it under certain lights but out of all colours its the one that really stands out if youre looking for a really bright summer stunner. The black is the most subdued and classic of the lot but still had a nice sparkle to it in some lights but perhaps its the "safe" option. Im still debating which colour myself so I would be interested to see which option you choose.
    It depends a lot of lighting environment and angle of view how the dial is rendered.

    Here are a few of my photos that display various states (light blue, dark grey, silver):

    Blue is the safer pick - less chance that you grow tired of it over time.

    But the grey has a cool factor for sure.

    Came here to post the same video !
    It should really help the op out. He makes some valid arguments.

    Btw my vote goes to blue.
