    For me, I would go with the blue. However, it is not about my preference - it is about your preference. If for you the blue dial pops the most, is your colour and is the more eye-catching of the two. You should go with the blue dial and forget about the convention that black goes with anything,

    We Watch Enthusiasts overthink everything — it’s what we do.

    I went through the same decision process. Here’s me considering both at the dealer:

    What hasn’t been discussed is whether you have another black dial watch? I happen to have both a Speedmaster and a Planet Ocean, so a black Seamaster Diver 300 would fight for wrist time. My vote was blue because it fit my collection’s needs better, but I will admit to liking the high contrast of the black variant just a tiny bit more.

    All the Seamasters (black, white, blue, grey) on steel bracelet go with everything. Maybe a blue on blue rubber might clash with something, but judging from the shirt you are wearing to your shoes to the fact that you have no visible, colored tattoos, (small sample size, I know), I seriously doubt that you own or wear anything that would seriously clash with a blue-dialed Seamaster.

    So, of the two, I would pick blue because it's a Seamaster, and blue is a Seamaster thing. That said, I have a white dial, because it's awesome.

    But pick the one you like best, regardless of "versatility", because both the black and blue pair with everything.

    My Seiko HAQ is black, but it's not really in the same ballpark as this Omega. It wouldn't fight for wrist time; it would be what I'd wear when paranoid I'd damage the Omega.

    Especially with the 42mm's waves, a clear throwback to the 2541.80 and the 2531.80 of the Brosnan era, I'd 100% go blue.

    41Mets, who is a frequent OP, has very prominent green & black-grey tattoos on his arm, so when he asks "which watch", you have to take his tattoos into account.

    Blue is definitely the choice for me.

    One of these is calling my name and I may give in soon!

    Blue is starting to take the lead in the poll, although Black isn't far behind!

    To give everyone an idea what sort of shirts I normally wear and would be pairing this Omega with, here's a cross-section of some of mine with my current black-dialled Seiko:

    I feel like the Blue dial might clash a bit with the first shirt, but should be good with all the others. The Black would go with any of them. While I'm not letting a single shirt affect my buying decision for a ~$7k AUD watch, I also don't want to change my style and the colours I wear to accommodate what is, at the end of the day, just a very expensive accessory.
