I got this Mercedes edition watch from my deceased grandfather. It came with a black leather band, I'm young and not into leather. I went to a local jewelry store and these are the top two bands that I came down to.
I already have enough Silver metal watches, I never had a black one. But since the watch came with a black band do you think this black metal one would look good?

I personally wouldn't touch it, if it's something that has more sentimental values than anything I wouldn't want to mess around with it, That's my honest opinion ofcourse.

If I had to choose thou, I would pick the silver one for sure, I rather have the band match the frame of the watch.

If I had to choose, I'd go for the black band because it matches the background/interior of the watch, and because black looks cooler and more hip, since you're young. :p

I like the silver one better than the black one. The silver one matches the bezel of the watch and is a more attractive match than the black band matching the face.

Thanks you's guys. I want the black one only because I already have 2 silver watches including a 45 mm faced Bulova.
The black is almost too plain though. I'd like a bi-tone glossy, gunmetal / black.
Maybe I'll shop around more, but this mom and pop shop had more than any department store in my city.
Thanks again EIC.

Of course the black one costs twice as much lol.
But I got too many silver watches, i'll just go for black.
