Am a bit undecided between these two so thought I'd open up to an informal poll. Some of you will be aware of a difference in the case metal, so for purposes of this selection I'm only considering the dial aesthetics - assume no difference in metal, price, rarity, condition, etc. Also, these are the only Reversos under consideration, since other models do not speak to me.
1) ruthenium dial - I love the color, but not sure about the 2-tone as it seems to leave the dial a bit busy
2) black dial - I prefer the uniformity of the single tone dial, but not sure if black may be too stark
Thoughts? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'd go with dark brown or navy croc for the black, and navy croc with the ruthenium. Does that change your preference?

i think with a brown strap, i would prefer the black dial indeed.

This is porno right away. It's perfect I like everything about it here. I'm not a big fan of gold on watches, but on these kind of classic model's and on a Patek that couldn't be nicer. If you don't mind me asking how much did you pay for it?

Well, she's here. According to the serial number, this Seamaster was made in 1957. As I said before, I'm a 17y.o. high schooler with a limited budget. I had been looking around at new watches and none of them really fit what I was looking for, so I started to look at vintage. When I saw this, I fell in love. Yes, the dial has been redone. So is it the most collectable vintage watch out there? No. But I quite like the black face really, and since all I want out of this watch is personal enjoyment... it serves its purpose :) I'm quite happy with this as a starter for my collection.

I'll need a new band though, my wrist is too dang small.
