    I prefer the ruthenium dial, as I like the greater three-dimensionality of it and the way the grey catches the light.

    Prefer the black.

    Medtech - I thought the 26mm Night/Day Reverso's had been discontinued?

    ruthenium, the black with the black strap seems to lack contrast for me.

    Thanks for the offer, but I've got a thing for white metal. :D



    Both are grande taille and discontinued. The platinum was a limited of 125 pieces, while the white gold was regular production IIRC. I managed to find the platinum NIB at an AD, and the WG has been recently overhauled by JLC so both should be pristine.



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