    Steel watches with white faces and gold hands

    I have found that there is just something about a good quality stainless steel cased watch with a light coloured dial and gold hands that looks so alluring.

    I've has a few, mainly vintage pieces. This is my current one - a 1961 Seamaster, recently refurbished by Brendan.



    Anyone else similarly affected?

    Most of my watches have black dials, however I do have one white dial, gold hands and indices combination.

    I agree. I really like my Oris pointer date, with the rose gold hands and numerals against the silver dial.

    Yes I absolutely agree. Mine is also an Oris, but with rose gold bezel and Roman indices.

    I have these two, surprisingly similar watches.





    I prefer the snazzy numerals on the Novus if I'm honest. The dial is in better condition, too, although it's battered crystal might lead you to think otherwise.

    The lugs on the Omega are a little more elegant though.
