Okay, so I know this is a fairly basic and common question, but I've honestly been bouncing back and forth between the blue and black model for months. I'll be looking to pick up a Seamaster Diver 300M as a daily wearer in the near future; if not quite a "one watch" collection, it will be my main watch, to compliment a Seiko HAQ beater and a Waltham pocket watch for formal occasions.
The blue definitely pops the most, and is the more eye-catching of the two. I've always thought of blue as my colour, and it would compliment the majority of my wardrobe. But black goes with anything, it's the more classic and versatile option, and the glossy black ceramic looks very attractive in person. I've tried both on at ADs and a nearby Omega boutique on a couple of occasions, and even brought my partner along for a second opinion, and she's as much on the fence between both models as I am.
So I turn to you, the ever-WISe Omega community, for your thoughts. Which colour should I pick? Here are some photos I've taken of both options on my wrist when trying them on at ADs:
While I like the white dial version, for me it's between the blue and the black. The grey isn't even in the running; I find the dial contrast too poor. Your thoughts and comments would be most welcome :)
I ended up choosing Black:
And I now have the watch!
Thank you to all who posted with your insights and experiences :D
