Dark side of the moon: black,black or normal?

I'm a big fan of the various xSOTM watches. I have also been fortunate to try all of them on and own/have owned a few. My personal favorite is the Black fact, I'm wearing it as I type this. While not as highly legible as the other models, I've never had an issue reading the time easily (unless it's completely dark as the lume is also black).

My personal opinion is that these are amazing watches and I thoroughly enjoy wearing them. While some may prefer Omega to have only released the original, I appreciate the variety. Very comfortable to wear and house an excellent movement.

Have you tried on the original vs Black to compare? I think it will come down to personal taste and style for which you will be happiest owning.

Top one is misguided and makes me sad.

Both are amazing, but if I had to choose one, I’d pic the original. Good luck, can’t go wrong with either

I prefer the original, and I also love the Grey Side of the Moon model. Really, though, you can't go wrong with any of these. The exotic materials, shapes and finishes are so cool!

Original for me. Although the Pitch Black is a close second. Go try them on, you’ll know which one is right for you.

If you have other normal watches, the black on black is a great one for a rotation, so I vote that....
