I have to say, and I'm slightly biased, that the black is the one to stick with:

The grey looks a bit dull :?

The grey dial was taken under flat office light. But yes, it is a bit more subtle than the black dial which has quite a bit more contrast between the black dial and white hands. The grey dial has polished hands which also makes them a bit less visible.

The kind of strap also makes a difference. The black is like a dial you would find in a cockpit. Pure functional. The grey dial is a but more classy and the polished bezel gives it an upscale look.

Gloriously sunny, if chilly, morning.

Thanks. Just paid over the odds for the khaki one due to poor exchange rate but I am thinking it will look great on my Bremont and looks nice and thin, current NATO I have on my PADI sticks out loads on the overlap.

Thank you Bernie, It's very dressy and dare I say, I feel more comfortable wearing it than I do this one...
