Help me out? Black? Green? White?

I know I’m being a little cheeky using our site for this but I’ve never been accused of being conservative in my actions. I need your help. My sense of colour really sucks.

I am wanting to buy myself one of the limited edition RWC 2011 watches, but being a guy my sense of fashion or colour is about as good as my sense of diplomacy. And rather then walk aroung town looking like a total dork, I have decided to ask for some help in trying to choose a colour.

Black I presume is for New Zealand, but DOES look very cool, White is for England maybe and looks slightly iffy, Green I think is for the Springboks, but looks more than just a bit iffy. Then again as I’ve said my sense of colour sucks. Do I go for timeless black, I wanna be cool white or you can’t miss me Green?

Check out the Official RWC merchandise shop, there are some cool things in there.

  • They look like lucky packet watches. The black one looks to be the not so baddest one + you can say it’s coz you support the Sharks hence black

  • They are all ugly but the least ugly would be the black. You could buy an ice watch and get a RWC shirt ;-)

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 17) : noop – actually somewhat similar to these RWC ones. As far as I remember the one I saw where from 800 bucks to over a grand and it didn’t feel such a great value for money. This ones are at least half the price.

    I like the ice watches, they are funky and bright and I have always been into watches. I have about 40 watches and my husband just laughs now when I come home with a new one :roll:

  • White will get dirty and look bad in no time. Black is classy, but it is a special watch, so you want people to notice it. So I vote green, if you are going to pay the money, make sure people see it.

  • If you want something as a specific reminder of the World Cup, go green. If your intention is to continue with daily use, go black, it’s less likely to date, and of course there’s the Sharks connotation. But what do I know, I’m also sartorially challenged, so my wife has to dress me if we have to appear in public :mrgreen:

  • I would say black, but although I think the white is very “funky”. It looks “with the times”.

    Have you seen the Ice watches? They are very cool (pun intended) – if I am correct they advertise them on the back of the Sharks mags every month as well.
