To be honest, I don't like the black dial so the one with the blue dial it's still my favorite. But the one with the white dial doesn't look bad at all.
Fine watches sure, but sorry I don't consider a splash of color and calling it the Golf edition... awesome. Omega is IMHO a really good brand, but a horrible offender when it comes to overdoing the special edition watches (both in terms of how many special editions they make and the volume of each special edition). There have been several 007 Seamasters, and countless special editions for each time interval since the lunar landing (the silliest having Snoopy characters on the dial). What is next the "I brush my teeth every day edition?" Actually, the white dial golf AT could be just that....Its got all the colors found on a box of Crest whitening peroxide tooth paste. So instead of a nick name like the Kermit or Hulk for Submariners...this version of the AT could be the "Crest Whitening." They could market it to smokers and golfers.
I was on an Omega AD once, and someone inquired about a recent release of another 007 Seamaster. When the customer asked how many will be produced, the AD said,"About 7,000, ...too bad there are only 2,000 people that will want it." Sure with a hefty discount almost any watch will sell, but his comment underscored that just because its a special edition or limited in number doesn't mean it will make a piece more desirable.
I also find if funny that the AT is essentially wearing an Oyster Bracelet with polished center links.
Good luck with whatever you decide...but I'd rather have a regular AT if that is the watch you have your heart set on.
