Hey, if you could get one diver for everyday wear, would you go for a black or blue dial?

In most cases, I'd rather have black but I'd consider blue if it was a dark enough, subtle enough shade.

Yeah I read that black is more versatile, but generally, I avoid black in my ensembles so I'm not sure that applies in my case.

Enjoying the brown strap I just bought my for my Seiko 5. Hell, enjoying the 5 in general more than I thought I would.

Black. Period.

Black is versatile always, whereas most blue is picky as hell, and any blue dark enough to be good might as well be black.

I have both a blue dial diver and a black dial diver. There has never been an occasion where I even once thought that the watch did not go with what I was wearing because of the dial color. The fact that one is more of a tool watch and the other one is more dressy impacts which one I grab much more often.

^^ I think this may be the first watch picture on this thread that involves sitting on the toilet with pants around the ankles as part of the picture. There was a time not so long ago in which this would have become the post of the day.
lol super! my only question is are we timing the dump (chrono?) or simply checking the date?

Was actually just admiring the checkered dial. My dump was finished by then. It doesn't take me long when I eat cabbage.

Yes, but javyn asked, "If only one...."
Correct. I was disagreeing with your suggestion that black is a more versatile color for a dial and blue is difficult to match to apparel. I find a blue or black dial color to be an irrelevant consideration when picking what I wear or which watch I want to grab.
