Like most things, it depends.

I went with white because I already have a few black-dialed Rolex, and because it's a bit more legible. I love the way it looks in the sun and by the sea, too.

They're both good, though, and I don't think one choice is more correct or better than the other. As with every watch-decision matter, it's best try them both in person if you get the chance. I'm sure I would have been happy with either colour. Swapping dials isn't something I would do frequently on a chronograph due to how tightly the central seconds has to be fitted, but the option is there and it's not too difficult to source an alternate dial for a 116520 — so it's not like you're committed to the choice for life.

No regrets on the white dial so far, however:

beautiful white dial daytona, and interesting you still got a typewriter around!

Excellent watch, it's certainly one of my favorites.

bawlin - love that Sub C - it's a very strong contender for my next watch.  I am also drawn to the green dial / green bezel version as I am craving some colour in the  rotation, but I'm somewhat hesitant about my long term affection for something that bold.  The GMT II C with the blue/black ceramic bezel is also on the radar, as is the blue dial DJII (still trying to comprehend all the hate for that line).  Anyway, congrats and enjoy your new piece.

I pretty much exclusively lurk in this thread, but to me, the discussions herein are fantastic, as are the pics posted. 

 

 

For diversity I'll post a pic of my single watch (atm). Warning though, I have neither a high caliber watch, nor high caliber photo taking skills. 

 

I've also never seen AE mentioned here...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

P.S I don't mind the Kate Upton pics either, not at all.

Congrats, stupendous watch. Look perfect on you. I think the updated Sub-C was a great move by Rolex.

To be honest, I'm actually still getting used to the heft (mind you I've been watch-less for 2 or so years so...). Overall, the fit and finish is impeccable and personally speaking, I find the cerachrome bezel to be absolutely stunning in person. I think this watch is a great blend of fashion and function, and now that I own one I can understand why the Submariner is arguably one of the most iconic watches of all time. Hopefully I can add an LV in the next 6 months.

Cheers!



Nice AT, Keen.
