I happen to really like the look of the steel Rolex Explorer II (not a true diver) with the white dial and black outlined hands and hour marks. However, in searching for a quality dive watch with a similar look, the only one that I have found that comes close is the Breitling SuperOcean Heritage. Why are the dials on divers almost always black, blue, or orange (which I hate)? Also, please suggest any other divers that have a white dial with black outlined hands and hour marks.

From a practical standpoint, white dials are harder to see underwater. That is why you don't see them offered much.

diver watches have to meet certain readability specs.... some fashion brands might carry a so called diver with a white dial but it wouldn't be too common or of much use to a real diver.

Dang, I wonder if Joe thinks his products are "fashion brand so called divers" :-d
And btw, I am a real diver the last time I checked :-d I really have no idea why there are so few white dial divers out there but I do like some of them. This one is ok to dive with, has been to 30m deep and is readable enough for me.

Seiko Stargate and Starfish come to mind. There was also a white dial Monster that can be had as an official Seiko LE or as a Yobokies mod. All true diver watches, and affordable to boot.

Agreed The DB looks great, don't have a white dial, but liking them.
The Ploprof and the Helson 600 M look great.

Deepblue has a t100 daynight recon in white I have the orange but the white came out later and it is quite nice
