Rolex did a really good job mixing brushed, polished and that frosted dial together into one cohesive package. Overall, the watch looks incredibly balanced, mainly due to the all-silver theme. It's dressy, yet subdued. You can wear this with anything. It's monochrome, yet not in the least plain looking.

The dial and bezel are platinum. Most other companies would've opted to go full polish, but Rolex thankfully held back, instead highlighting just the coin-edge and markers.

G-shock Mudman 9000 review

G-shock Mudman 9000 reviewIntroducing the dust-resistant, dirt-resistant MUDMAN with Dual Illuminator.
MUDMAN is designed and engineered with people like motor sport mechanics in mind. Its Mud Resist construction seals out everything from the oil of workshop to the sand of motorcycle rally. A Dual Illuminator backlight can be configured for 3-second or 5-second afterglow for easy reading in the dark.
Dual 1,000-hour stopwatches allow simultaneous measurement of two times, which means you can use one stopwatch to time a race and the other to determine how much time is being lost in pit stops. The back cover is engraved with the image of a mole, which represents the MUDMAN concept.

DUAL ILLUMINATOR
Dual EL panels provide simultaneous illumination of the LCD panel and the dial for better readability when available lighting is dim.
