    Looking for an affordable ALL BLACK Watch

    Hey guys,

    I've been looking for an affordable all black watch for a long time now. I want the watch to have a black case, black face, black hands, black EVERYTHING. It would be great if it was glow in the dark, but I'm ok with it if it isn't. I'm ok with leather strap, rubber strap or stainless- as long as it's black. I'd like something that looks like a military watch. I've had a thing for the Bamford Rolex Submariners for a long time now, and I also love the all black Panerai.

    I found this: Swiss Legend Mens Trimix Diver 10541-BLK Rubber Watch: Watches: Amazon.com

    Which is basically a copy of a Royal Oak. I like it, but I'm not sure this company's stuff is worth $150. Do you guys have any opinion on them? I classify Swiss Legend with Invicta, and I don't think either makes a very good product, but maybe I'm wrong.

    Do you guys have any other suggestions? Thanks

    Danny

    I cannot speak for the quality of Swiss Legend since I've never owned one. I do know that Citizen has some nice options in blacked-out watches. I have the AW1018-55E which is not totally blacked out but I like the subtle contrast and it is close to your price range. If I were going to get a totally black watch, I think the CA0295-58E Nighthawk would be my choice. But, of course, it is double the cost of the Swiss Legend you posted.

    The Black Orca is a fine piece, and it costs USD35 (!)

    This is exactly the first watch I was thinking of. It looks sweet. And, best of all, its a Citizen!

    Look up Torgoen Phantom or Momentum Deep 6 Vision.

    There are many Rolex Submariner and Panerai homages in all black available for between $80 - $120 from such sellers as Manbushji, WenPing1970, Getat and Jackson Tse.
