In all of the photos for this watch, the outside of the case is obviously black, but the dial is a matte fatigue green, with yellow phosphorescent hands and dial markings. The green fatigue dial gives it a very distinctive look. However, when I received the watch the dial color is black shiny black. Disappointing, but after the nightmare of dealing with two botched UPS deliveries, I'm not going to bother returning this watch. Other than the dial color issue, the watch has a great feel on the wrist and it's easy to read. I've yet to wear it in the Sun to see how the phosphorescent hands and markings work. Seeing is believing. The watch also has a nice solid feel and weight in the hand. The Japanese quartz movement seems to keep very good time. I would recommend this watch.
