Do anybody knows (and I am sure lots of you do).....

Why most of the dials are colored in matt color
Why aren't any shiny colored dials?

dive watches in general seems all to have a matt or an uncoated color dial

Probably due to legibility? Less concentration on 'bling' and more on utility?

For most, it's probably a matter of opinion. There are a lot of Divers that use a patterned dial, too. Seamaster, and ORIS' dials for example.

I think it might be because shiny dials reflect light more than matte dials do.

When are we going to see this new watch that you've been picking the forum for design input?

shiny dials, even with ar, reflect the hand set back against the dial. so it makes it harder to read at a glance. I have some pics I'll dig up of the reflections.
