Hello, i am about to purchase the Casio Edifice EF527D only this watch comes in 2 dial colors, white and black. I already have a Swatch with a black dial, so i just want some opinions. Thanks

There are a few other options. There's the EF-527D-5A, which has a brownish dial.

If you don't mind a leather strap there's the EF-527L-1A, which has a slightly different black dial featuring gold coloured markers

or the EF-527L-2A with a blue dial

and there's also the EF-527BK

Not sure if that makes your choice any easier...

On a busy white dial, I'd be worried about the white hands not having enough contrast. I'd have to see one in person.

The darker colors seem safer.

I quite liked the white dial one until I saw it in person. The dial is actually more of a silver colour, and I have to say I found it a little underwhelming. The picture below gives some idea.

Remember, you ask.............

Frankly I find most white or off white dials hard to read unless they have black or dark handsets. Lumed hands against a black dial are the easiest for me to read at a glance. I actually use these more for telling time than as fashion pieces.

Black on all but dress two tone or gold watches for me.

I have the black version and I've seen the white/silver one in person.

Honestly, the white/silver version is way much more beautiful and interesting. It looks as a much more expensive watch, with better finishing and colors are more pleasant.
