I did something a little unusual (for me at least, but maybe not unusual for other WISs) because I saw two versions of the same watch available at a good sales price that was ending: I bought both. They are the Ball Trainmaster Legend with the black dial and the other with the gray/anthracite dial. Both are on the OEM stainless bracelet. They have not arrived yet, but I plan to keep one and resell the other. This will be my first Ball watch.
In darker lighting, I suspect they will look almost identical, while the gray will look brighter in direct sunlight.
Any thoughts on which looks sharper or is more versatile, the black or the gray version? I have seen the gray dial on a dark brown alligator strap and think that would be a nice change of pace option. Not sure how the black would look on a similar leather strap.
Thanks in advance for any feedback. (These pictures are not mine.)
