Generally speaking, I agree.I agree with Gabe. I like how negative displays look but find positive displays easier to read.
I think your Seiko will be my next watch purchase... I am digging the Sportura World Time ana-digi chronograph (It is a grey market import as Seiko does not sell it in the US).My Seiko ana digi (SNJ0009) has a negative display that is very legible and that I love. Yes, I realize I'm contradicting myself -- even though I love that display I have still never bought a pure digital watch with a negative display
+1 Absolutely, its just sales hype negative display watches are of no use to the military, the only tactical use for them is skirmishing across a well lit bar :-d<|
It means a watch with a display that is harder to read in low light....
A lot of these are sold as 'Tactical' or 'Military'. I use a watch in tactical situations and find these absolutely useless!!
Try one if you're intrigued ....i did.......they were not for me.
It's easiest to explain with a picture. Positive display on the left, negative on the right:

I personally think the negative displays look cool, but my eyes just don't read them very well. I went with the positive display for my Core.
