Hello Everyone, I know people always ask for help deciding on what watch to choose, but I have a watch in mind the Margrette Moana Pacific professional, I am just looking for feed back on the color combination I should get. Hear are the pictures of the choices.

Rose gold PVD/Grey Dial



SS/Blue Dial



Thanks in advance on your input

Hm. Very tough choice.

Based solely on the case finishes (polished) I'd choose blue, as the rose gold may be just slightly blingy. But if I had to choose just between the dials/bezels, I'd be stuck.

Tough call. Rose gold is all the rage and is pretty nice. Blue is my favorite color though... so personally, in this case, I give the nod to blue. That said - they are both nice.

Usually I dont go for gold or rose gold watches but in this case I think it looks good on this model but I have a feeling I might regret buying a gold watch, Normally it would not be a tough decision but for some reason I keep looking at the gold one. That is the problem with ordering a watch without being able to hold it and see them first hand. At the moment I dont have a blue faced watch. DAMN

Is the gold brushed? It looks kind of matte from the images. If it's not shiny/polished, I like the gold. The blue is very nice also though. You should get whatever speaks to you most, you can't go wrong with that!

They're both awful purty, but personally I prefer the blue.

If you haven't already done so, I'd check out the Magrette Regattare, which has a similar dial but an internal bezel. I think it's better looking than the MPP, IMHO, and the same price. It looks like it only comes in black dial/stainless case, so no agonizing over choosing a color.

I think the blue is the better of the two, but it's almost a toss-up.

That rose gold looks more like a copper, and I loves me some copper. Built a pot rack with some copper, would love to have some on a watch (minus the patina that would probably develop).

I'm not usually a fan of gold or rose gold, but that pvd/gray tones it down to little more than an accent IMO. Can't go wrong with the blue, either IMO. I see the blue as a more casual look than the rose gold, so I'd keep that in mind.

The one Doc suggested is really nice as well.

Tough call either way, really.
