Which one dial do you prefer for the 5960 1a ? Black or white?

Just wondering which dial our members prefer for the 5960 1a .
Comments and suggestions appreciated.

I've seen the white and I like it. Black could be nice too, but I'll wait til I handle it

Black for me, though I need to see it in the metal. Quite surprised the white scored so well!

Probably black but white does look good too, have to be a then and there decision.

At least from the photos, the black dial on the 5960/1A doesn't look as nice as the black dial on the 5960P and 5960R.

It's an eboline matte black, not glossy like the 5960P black. More like the 5170 black, from what I understand.

But I'd take the platinum models over these two. The mono counter and the leaf hands and the font used are much more appealing to my eyes.

I rarely see anyone with the black dial version. As for me I would have to go with the white dial..now with that said the black does not look that bad but there's something about that white dial that looks good with the bracelet.
