Today's watch is the black-dialed version of this watch. It also came on a black leather band instead of the jubilee-style bracelet. I don't know if it's the different dial color or the strap, but I like the looks of this one better than the blue-dialed one. This is surprising because I chose to buy the blue one while my dad originally bought this one. Now it's mine and I will probably wear it more often than the blue one.
