Precious metal > diamonds for men, but like others have said, to each their own.

All the above. Personally I have a few diamond items & I've had nothing but complements about them if anyone has thought they were 'girly' in anyway I've yet to hear those comments said to my face.

funny, I use to have mixed feelings on "Do men wear diamond dial watch". Until I fell in love with this beauty.

This question is EXTREMELY subjective, and many here will say never, while others like it. Not for me, but do what makes you smile.

I have seen many smart looking well dressed men wear diamond ear rings. So why not diamond watch dial?
I think it will look great on your wrist.

I think this looks terrible. I come from a place where ear rings of any kind are considered to be for women and women only.

Couldn't agree more! I personally like diamond markers on Rolex watches and if you like that look as well then, by all means, go for it and be happy!

I find diamonds in watches ugly and vulgar. It is hard not to make snap judgements on people who choose to spend their money buying them. But of course, each to his own...

Hear, hear. And there's no way that's anything other than a masculine watch.

I never owned a Rolex with a diamond dial and/or a diamond bezel
Now that my sight is not what it used to be I might buy something
with a diamond dial...for medicinal purposes.

So I've been considering changing the dial for a while now. I have a Jewler who will do it but I don't know which dial to choose.

The rhodium really catches my eye, but leaves me questioning-

Do men really wear diamonds?
I do..........

I'm curious as to what kind of "snap judgment" you would make on me then? Or on member tkerrmd, who, from what I can see, appears to be a successful vascular surgeon who happens to race Porsches in his spare time.

Why not? I like certain diamond dials like the platinum glacier DDI and platinum tahitian pearl DDI. Of course love Fremstar's DJ too with tahitian pearl diamond dial! To each his own...Cheers,

I find it hard to believe that you would have such a hard time refraining from judging somebody over a mere watch, let alone its dial...

A diamond dial can be classy and tastefully done!

Diamonds on the dial I think are no flashier than having a gold watch. Diamonds on the bezel however are a different matter.
