this watch would be cool if it wasn't for the glaring "converse" logo....

Light colored face with light colored hands or dark colored face with dark colored hands makes every one of these hard to read.

Without the date option, this watch is a no go for me.

that was fun while it lasted!

I like the green one and the black one.

@KyserSoze Who wears a watch to read the time, anyways? That's what my iPhone is for!

A watch with a black face and black dial? I'd rather have an Archie McPhee backwards clock -- at least it confuses the visitors rather than just me.

With dark hands on dark face or white on white, one can't really tell the time, but it's a nice opening to converse.

Ok, just called my buddy and he's going to go caption each photo with its color and size.

Also, the last photo is the blue one. Hard to tell. That may part of the confusion with the black watches.

EDIT: Photos are updated now so it should be easier.

Wow, Woot. Zillions of stylish watches in the world and this is the best you could do? I am disappoint.

I so agree with you. I'd buy this watch if the face were all black. It's like they missed the whole point of their own design. (I guess they wanted to make a different point.)

thanks for removing my question, because it hasn't been answered yet

if you check the pictures with white strap, you'll notice they are pretty different. one white strap clearly has plenty of black detailing, the other one only has one strap of black near the buckle.

do i need to screenshot this so i won't have to post it again when it's removed?

Since they're analog these watches aren't Mac compatible, but I think they should work on my Heathkit EC-1 with a software update.

I think the different amounts of black correspond to the different face sizes. Large face means that you have black for the plastic parts while small face means that you have white plastic parts. Note that this all depends on which color strap you have chosen.

Ive got 20/10 vision and not a fan of metal or rubber bands... the black-on-black versions looking good for this fella

Whoops, sorry. I thought it was answered by the photo captioning. Was trying to clean up some so it was easier to scan the thread now that we fixed up the photos.

Yes, there are two white strap watches and they have different detailing. One is noted as the large face watch; the other as the small face watch.

I imagine the white straps would get stained very quickly even on a low maintenance day.

well, there's a fella in Pawnee, Indiana called Tommy Fresh who really advocates the black on black. You should see his business cards.

The only version that would be more impractical and even less desirable would be an LCD black-on-black model...

This must be the best revenge gift for the money.. Nothing says "I HATE YOU" like a watch built to camouflage time from you.

So the face comes in white or black but you can't choose which color?

quality posts: 1 Private Messages jbenjimin

Black watch with black band would be my choice, but I'd need to buy two to get that combo.

I personally like the black on black, I bet the hands are much easier to see in person than they are in the photos. (no experience with them, just guessing)

This would be better if you could choose your watch face and strap color separately... Red strap a black face would be awesome, but the only option for red strap is the white face.

Yeah, cool but that would we would have to open every box and disassemble the watches. Plus our warehouse monkeys aren't good with colors.

Apparently Converse is lacking sales on their crappy shoes and have brought their attention to crappy wrist accessories. Perhaps a crappy eyepatch is in the future.

Black dials are cool if you can see the hands, even in the dark.

This is a watch for people who are more into style than function.

Pass.

Converse is cool. The Chuck Taylor star would have made it more cool.

But really I'm holding out for a PF Flyer watch. Run faster, jump higher.

I've noticed the exact puzzle. I'd buy one, but I don't want the white face.

I'll second that. I was going to start buying, picked my strap color and size.. .saw I couldn't select face/dial color, backed out.

Scroll through the photos and look at the captions. There's differences between the small and large faces.

Aren't most watches more about style than function? Otherwise we could all just wear a standard Timex.

Good comments. Have a canvas strap & it stays cool in hot weather, durable, Velcro. No fan of dark face & dumb logo. Price about only decent thing.

Why would you need to buy two? Buy the large face watch with a black strap. Done.

Wait, I take that back. It looks like you can't specify the face color. I was about to purchase, too, but the white face is ugly, don't want to risk it.

Great watch (for those that don't need to know what time it is).
After retirement, this may be the watch to wear!
