    ZF AP 15500

    ZF first prototype dial is ready, but the cube texture is little different, they will fix it. But all looks good, it seems will be released in few months.

    I did look at a lot of images both here and googling and I like the contrast between the black dial and the bracelet but other pics with the grey dial alone look wonderful as well.

    Which one do you guys have and what justified your decision?
    I can't help you in the decision but I have a 15500 zf black dial and 15400 jf white dial. I prefer the white dial because it's more shiny and I think that is a perfect match with the shiny bracelet. The black dial is more subtle and a bit more matt. The Grey dial it's a mid-way that I really don't like, but it's subjective and I know that is the first choice of a lot people here (also because it seems the most gen-like). One year ago I read that zzf made the most gen-like sub no date and I bought it. Result: never worn, because simply it's not my kind of watch.
    So I suggest you to look a lot of pictures and understand which color is the best for you!

    My heart has leaned completely towards the black dial after seeing this clip and how it plays with the light, it's special for me.

    You were not wrong in saying that the grey 15500 appears to be rather monotonous in terms of color blend/presentation but I like my gen grey 15500 just fine for the very same reason. I have recently sold my gen silver 15500 for the opposite reason: The contrast of the dial and case color was rather stark for a watch of this design. Am awaiting the arrival of the blue dial from the boutique currently.

    I agree with you that opinions are welcome when you are faced with challenges in choosing a specific color, but srhoque was right, it largely boils down to individual preferences.
    Given that none of the colors are really gen-like, this brings down the choice rationale to your individual preference. Personally I will pick the grey. It looks good on a $400+ watch and looks nice on its own without any comparison to the gen ruthenium color. The gen grey is lighter and a bit more metallic in finish, whereas the rep one is darker, have a hint of brown and looks more "plastic" on the surface.

    Grey = blends into the metal. Boring.

    Obviously, these are my personal subjective opinions. But who cares, you asked for opinions. Go black. Grey/white dull and boring in my opinion. Be bold or go home.
    Definitely, funny thing about the gen Grey it's that it has a longer waiting time at the AP Boutique than other colours but in the 'wild' it would be seen more often due to it's popularity in the rep world. Not that you would want to fool anyone, it's just a funny fact.

    Blue watches are the best looking, black is usually the most plain Jane colour.

    I would stick with Grey, its unique and looks great under all light conditions (Too many Black/white dials out there). I have the Grey and Blue and will not trade it for any other color.

    On a different note - color is a personal choice. I don't think others "opinion" should drive your purchasing decisions.

    My white dial is beautiful, but my second options would’ve been a black dial.
