Honestly, I think the black one is the best option -- It can go either causal or fancy (as the design of the face is fairly intricate and easily can go with a more dressed up outfit), where the white one is definitely more dressy looking over all (and I don't feel like it works quite the same on a casual level). The black one is the more practical option because it will go with more, the time is easier to see with the black face, and the gears stand out more against the dark color, too.
Just my two cents.
XD SORRY. I get sidetracked a lot.
I think Rolex watches are overrated.

Keep Kadaeux away O_O
I'd have to go with the black on white. Just sticks out more for me, but maybe cause I'm a classy guy. ;)

Slenderman, stop being insensitive.
Until I saw those watches I didn't know what I was missing out on. I was going to be like "yeah but if you get him a watch make sure it's nice and not one of those lame ass plastic/rubber ones." And god damn those are beautiful. Love the steampunk design. @_@
I have to get one of those, I swear.
I do like the first one a little better, but #2 is more readable. It's tough to say.
