Sleeper dials

Everyone expects intricate finishes on a watch dial to cause instant eye candy everytime the lighting changes: guilloche work, fume dials, GS's texture sorcery and even a pronounced sunburst is bound to keep the watch owner in awe of the light play for months and years.

Matte finishes rarely do this. However, my Oris BCPD never ceases to amaze me with it's subtle sensitivity to lighting and angles, displaying everything from inky blackness over a pale taupe and somber anthracite to a warm brown, even some greenish reflections can be found when the light hits it just right - very satisfying in its reserved discretion.

What dials do you know that don't slap you in the face with their opulent beauty while at the same time rewarding you for patience and a closer look?

The colors of Oris dials are so good, and the 4 on the BCPD is one of the best looking numerals on any watch.

Every dial I own - I only buy watches I like.

Oris screams "old school" with subtle beauty.
