    Marine Original (Matte) - Silver Arabic vs White Arabic

    Hi all,

    I'm finding it very hard to decide between the two.
    - Marine Original (Matte), silver arabic
    - Marine Original (Matte), white arabic

    What are peoples thoughts?

    Has anyone seen them both or have both of them? Any chance of a side by side photo? :)

    Cheers!

    Had a white one a while back and found it worked great with almost any activity and was very easy to read at a glance.

    The silver is probably just as nice, but IMHO, it would not pop like the white dial does.

    No wrong choice, so get what you like best.

    Haha I'm so confused, can't make up my mind.

    I guess you're right, with the blue hands the white dial may make it pop.

    Silver all the way! White is nice enough but a little boring. Silver has a richer look in my opinion.

    I have a Silver/Matte/Arabic and a White/Polished/Roman. I like them both, however, with the size of the MO dial, the white can "pop" too much, it looks pretty big at times. I think the Silver is a bit more understated, and between the two, gets more wrist time.
