    Count my vote for Blue. Like anonymousmoose said its a seamaster 300. One of the most recognized watch faces around the globe. Not to mention it has the most pop and the blue ceramic dial just kills it for me everytime I look at it. Now if you were asking Submariner, I would hands down vote black.

    Also, noone does blue like Omega.

    I am looking to pick one up this year. I have a pretty small collection, with only two divers, both are black. So I am definitely going with Blue!!!

    I agree with all saying, go blue, it’s a SEAmaster. Lots of other black dialed dive options out there...

    If you want it for a daily, I say black. There's pretty much no outfit that will look bad with a black watch.

    I spent years buying coloured divers that "pop" and were exciting and bright and not just another boring black diver. They were all fun to own and I don't regret the journey, and when I decided to consolidate to 1 diver, I sold them all and went for a single black SMP300.

    This is not very helpful, but I really like them both. If I were choosing, I would have the same conundrum.

    I had the same dilemma and couldn’t decide between the black and blue two tone SMP300m - black is, as you say, more muted and elegant, blue more casual and modern.

    I went with blue. You can see how different it looks depending von the bracelet/strap and with different light and cameras.

    Blue for me, it just suits the watch more IMO.

    The blue is fine if you already have enough black watches. If not, however, it's just not versatile enough (in my opinion) to spend that amount of money on something that comes with such limitations so I'd have to get the black. This is said after owning 10 or so blue watches over the years, each one so very beautiful in its own right, only to eventually become bored of every one and have to sell it. Lastly, the white is actually my favorite for this particular model.
