I have narrowed down my search for my first automatic watch and came to the conclusion that it will be the Oris Aquis Date that I want. However, when I was trying both the 43mm and 40mm at my local AD, I was getting really unsure of firstly the size of the watch and secondly the color of the black 40 mm version. I wear a suit to work and I believe the 43mm will be too big and "flashy" for me in my line of work, and that the 40mm will be just perfect. I have been reading up on this watch for quite some time now, that it does wear smaller than it seems, but I am undecisive. Since I believe I have decided to go for the 40mm (changing my mind pretty often..) another question arose; the color of the dial looks way to gray than it should be. Is the 40mm the smarter choice when wearing a suit for work?
Is this normal due to light settings or is the black version usually this gray?
Compared to this one that I found on the internet:
That one looks more black than the one on my wrist.
To sum it up:
Based on the pictures, is the 40mm the right way to go alongside a suit for a daily wearer or does it look way off? And lastly, regarding the color. Is the color on my picture the actual black color or is it some bad version of it?
This is my first grail watch I will be buying as an achievement for making it through university and landing my first great job, so please be kind if this question has been answered before, I have simply not found it.
