I own the 38mm gold plated silver dial, gorgeous. I would have purchased the black but only in 38mm. This watch has no bezel and is all dial so the 38mm looks like a 40mm on the wrist ... And the 42mm looks really really big, way too big for my taste especially for a dress watch. I know that dark/black dials make watches look smaller but if that watch is 42mm and would look like a 44mm on the wrist in silver, it will look like a 42mm with a black dial.
Also, if I were to buy the 38mm watch, the first thing I would do would be to take my watch to my watchmaker to change this date wheel for a black one ... Cheap to do but why on earth did Hamilton order the movement with a white date wheel? Cost cutting and flexibility I guess. Shame.
