Definitely blue!

I'm leaning towards this as my next purchase as can't get anywhere close to a Daytona.

I just ordered a new 116613LN (black/gold) from DavidSW. It's my third rolex having come from the GMT2 stainless and GMT2 TT back when they were first released. I definitely missed the latter.

My next step is the all yellow gold stick dial Basel 2015 Day-Date. The blue sub was never a consideration as I find it a bit Corvette/oldguy/goldchain *for me* as a younger guy who likes his skinny jeans and HRE wheels.

Fun thread!

For me it depends on what colors you wear the most.

If I look at the YG Sub black dial next to a blue dial, I think the blue looks better. However, I wear a ton of blue shirts. Probably 4 days out the week I am in some shade of a blue shirt. And I feel strongly the blue dial is way too matchy-matchy if you wear a lot of blue shirts.

If you wear a lot of blue, go with the black dial. And the above doesn't apply to black shirts and black dial, that looks fine.

There's a significant reason why the sunburst is so popular...

I,own a blue and never wear it. It's too,loud. For me. I wear a deep blue a lot and find it far easier to read because it's bigger, oddly no one, not kidding, has ever commented or looked twice at the blue sub. Frankly, what turns me off much about the blue is the bracelet. I've often though about buying a sub bracelet and pairing the blue dial with the stainless bracelet. I personally think that would be beautiful,. The bracelet is gawdy to,me. I know it has good and is well made. But I think it's too,loud.

Originally really wanted the Bluesy, but wasn't sure if I'd get bored of the colour one day. I got the other colour instead, i.e. Black.

Both is great and very hard to choose between the two I agree.

Definitely the Blue Sunburst I had one up to about a month ago. Less than a year old & it was very hard to let it go they are beautiful. But I really wanted the Daytona White Dial 116503

Definitely the Blue Sunburst I have the 116613LB & it is beautiful with the Gold lettering on the Dial & it's fantastic in the Sunshine. I also have the 116503 Daytona White Dial & it's a real dilemma which to wear when the sun is shining but the Sub always gets the nod

If you get black then you will want blue.
If you get blue then there for you can move on.

Let me put on this way,
What color is the water when you dive into the water?
Black is much more like a Dead Sea, would you dive into Dead Sea?

I have a blue one and it is a beauty. It makes me happy just looking at it. However, it is a bit too flashy for my personality. I am getting a sub no date today for daily wear and keep the blue for special occasion, or when my mood hits.

Blue is my favourite colour so its no contest. I like the green but that's a bit off topic. Any dial colour is good.

You have to go with the blue when it comes to the two tone sub. IMO the 2 tone black looks better on the GMT.

They're both beautiful watches, but the blue one just stands out more and demands attention the black one is more classy conservative look
