David Yurman Darkens Its Countenance

Like many Swiss brands in recent years, the American jewelry and watch brand David Yurman has radically altered the look of its Classic watch model by completely clothing it in black. But while most modern black watches acquire their sense of bravado at the expense of any kind of readability, the Classic Black Chronograph ($5,200) remains an interesting and usable design thanks to its detailing and use of contrasting finishes. The multilevel dial contains opaline and galvanic black finishes, together with areas of guilloche. Raised appliqué indexes and numerals provide just enough relief to catch the light while remaining consistent with the varying black surfaces on the dial as well as the PVD case and rubber bracelet.
