What you do may not be so important, but it is very important that you do it well. (my variation of a saying by Gandhi)

MF Wrote:To my thinking it depends on the watch, and the totality of the design. Aside from principles of design (proportion, harming, etc.) a good design can be evocative and emotionally connotative.For that reason, I like the white dial Yacht Club chrono -to me it evokes the romance of sailing. And I like the white dial platinum Portofino moon phase: the contrast accents the clean lines of a simple, classic design. But also I strongly prefer black dialed pilots' watches, except for my brown St.Ex chrono. And a pure white dial on a Da Vinci chrono wouldn't cut it at all for me.

What is the difference? The Wikipedia was not very clear on this. But I saw mentioning something alike somewhere else without explanation.Kind regards,Paul
