    I had a blue AT which looked fabulous. But I also wear a lot of blue clothes and that was overkill with the watch. I now have a black watch which goes much better with my clothes. So maybe a look at what you wear could help you, OP. Good luck, both are beautiful, and you can‘t really go wrong with your final choice

    People say black. I say blue.

    My reasons; it's a SEAmaster

    This is a tough one. For my collection, I'd go blue, because it will complement the black dial Speedy and white dial OP and when I think of the Seamaster, I think of the blue wave dial. But if it was geared toward being a "one watch," I'd probably go black. I can just think of too many of my own outfits where a blue watch would not be ideal. If that would not be a problem for you, then go blue.

    Black is generally considered a more universal color, however I wear more blues & browns than blacks. Blue would definitely get be “something different” in the sea of black dial watches out there. I had a blue dialed IWC Pilot LPP and loved it, it went with nearly all my professional attire. Also, a blue dial on a black leather/croc strap can look stunning. I’d say go blue. I’m looking to add a blue dial to my collection again soon.

    Generally I would say black, but with this particular model I’ve always thought of blue being the nicest.

    I went with the black SMP. If I had it to do over again I’d probably go grey.

    If I was picking between those two for myself I'd definitely go with the black model.

    I was actually thinking about getting the new Seamaster Diver 300. Because I have a Speedmaster Pro and a Seamaster 300MC, both black dials, I decided I'd take a hard look at the blue dial Diver 300. It's a beautiful watch, but I just couldn't bring myself to choose the blue over the black. I like to be able to wear all my watches in any situation with any attire. For me that means the black model. However, in the end I decided not to get the watch after all.

    I would eventually like to add a blue dialed watch to my collection, but going forward I must be absolutely sure about the purchase because any future watches will stay with me for good. The blue would also have to be a little more subdued. Two watches that are in the running to be my blue dialed keeper are the OMEGA AT Skyfall 38.5mm and the IWC Mark XVIII Pilot's Watch le Petit Prince.

    Good luck with your decision, OP. Have fun with it and enjoy the buying experience.
