What do you think is the most versatile color of face for the Tissot PRC200 watch?

If I could throw this out there..

If you have an alternative band suggestion, would you mind posting pics of the combo, or at least the band you're recommending? Thanks!

Honestly I've never understood that kind of strap. It looks rough, cheap and plasticky. Reminds me of the straps on my highschool backpack (pic attached). To each his own though, I still appreciate the contribution!

If they were good enough for James Bond they're good enough for you

I'm quite convinced that James Bond can pull off multiple looks that I cannot.

I have a black face with a perforated black leather strap. White looks good too.

agree with first reply, black face is good ehough, and yes, get rid of that bracelet. It's not a dress watch, so wear accordingly.

Thanks, but once I decide on a specific one, I'm going to hunt it down for a bit less. I've seen a few go on ebay for around $100, so with patience I hope to do the same.

That said, it's looking like black is pretty unanimous. Not so much in the poll, but here and in other threads.

Okay, I'm going to ask the insane question that I'm not supposed to ask. I saw that post over there about the fakes. It seems like the differences are so minute, that only someone well versed in this specific watch could tell if the took off the watch and looked closely under a magnifying glass.

So if it seems the same quality, and keeps time just as well, why not save a ton of money to get pretty much an identical watch? I understand many replicas can be shoddy quality, but this seller has 100% positive feedback, and moves 7 figures a year, so not a whole lot of people are complaining...

Curious to hear your thoughts.

yes, i see the appeal there and if your happy with that then i say go for it.

I'm sure the quality ranges from pure junk to pretty decent on replicas. and your right most people wouldn't be able to tell unless they took a good look at it.

personally i don't like to support someone selling a fake that claims to be genuine. but hey thats just me.
