White.

In person in different lightings it even looks silver/greyish. Very nice. Must be the worst photogenic dial ever.

White for me. It has the vintage look and will maintain its warm through the years.

oh man, epic bump of a 1+ year old thread...

FWIW, white for me, which looks like what the OP decided

I was going to say that as well.

For some reason I can't explain, the white dial reminds me of a Paul Newman Daytona. White for me, on leather.

Judging from pictures alone, I would say white, but in person could be a different story as I usually prefer darker dials, but this one in the photos it seems the markers are less legible on the black.

Bracelet is not for me either way though.

I own the black dial and am happy with it. I like both but bought black because it is rare and my AD had one just after it got discontinued.

If i had to choose between the white or black dial, I would prefer the black but on a strap.

The white is nice in a “you don’t see that everyday” kinda way. The black is more conservative. I would probably go with the black, but that’s just me. The white will definitely get noticed more. IMHO, of course.

So after responding to this I decided to wear the watch today...the bracelet while I understand is subjective is really beautifully done and stands well apart from all others...so as part of a collection it's a home run.

Plus while the dial is white...in certain light and angles it has a silver look to it...it's a great piece.
