I want it at the angle where it is white.

Then you will be wanting the 15300.  Which is painted white.  And I don't think so nice.  I mean, nice.  But....

That's the thing with the silver dial: the light plays weird perspective tricks with it, almost like it's moving:

But to be honest, my dear Stitchy, I think you should hold out for what you really want.  Which, surely, is 

this? (Click to show)

15400 with silver dial is magical. I was unsure about the monochromatic effect but the dial is so brilliant it makes the white faced predecessor seem very flat and ordinary in comparison.

Don't want a blue dial.

Also dont like the silver dial there. : (

TC, can you post up some pics again?

Sure, Stitch, but with the caveat that you really must see it in person. FWIW, I don't think any layperson who sees this watch on my wrist from a distance of more than a couple of feet would describe the dial as "silver". Here's an attempt to show the whole range.

Well, Stichmeister, it's new and silver, or old and white (and 39mm).  But there is a white Jumbo, of course...if it has to be new and white, then maybe it has to be that. 

 

But look at those pics.  That watch is definitely "bad-ass", as I believe you gentlemen say.

That's my favorite too. It was the first pic I took of the watch--on my 4 hour drive home after picking her up! smile.gif
