Because i want a watch with an enamel or grand fue white dial. But the Sky isn’t bad either. Champagne kind of silver/white dials i like, but own a good champagne dialed watch, an enamel and a grand fue white i do not have.

It is a first for me as well, I loved the older Explorer Polar,

Had it, sold it, regretted it and decided to buy the new Explorer as long as it was white.

Interesting

JOW, i have the same preference as u for the white dialed Explorer II. I do not have the watch, but i consider it to acquire. I know many watch fans loves black dialed watches. My preference for shiny objects comes with the light that can blink. Back to R... 

The moniker JOW is more a wish than reality😬

I have tried, believe me I have tried to limit my collection to just one, but there are always new models coming out or older models I have a weak spot for, like amanico’s GMT Master, if only...

Both are cool..

Imho, both dials are unique, handsome, and different in their own way(s). I could easily see both pieces in a collection.

That’s what I think as well, although the

White of the Sky-Dweller can change depending on lighting from the sun or lamps, so I have a little preference for that one

Skywhite 100%

in this dialog but since we are on Rolex dial color I wonder what is the correct name of the white tone on Rolex Cellini Moonphase? I have tried to find it on Rolex website as well as at a Rolex dealer but have failed everywere so what to do but turn to y... 

Celestial white...?

I really have no idea Pelle and in all honesty, I believe that sky white and polar white are made up by Rolex fans and not official colours as far as I know.

Many thanks

Having trouble getting past the mismatched white on the Sky Dweller GMT ring.

I'd like it better if the ring either matched the dial hue or had a deliberately contrasted background color. (Blue? Gray?) All of which is to say that, as executed, I prefer the more harmonious dial on the Explorer II.

2 great white dials. SkyD for me 👍

They are both nice but my wrist cannot carry them.

When it comes to the dial, I prefer the Sky Dweller. Mind you, the white of Explorer suits its original design as a tool watch in the wild.

I prefer the explorer!
