Is there such a thing as too much black in your wardrobe? Check out this Nighthawk Chronograph Black IP Watch from Citizen. “IP” stands for “ion-plated,” in case you’re wondering. It’s what gives the stainless steel-link bracelet that nice matte finish. The dial, luminous hands and markers, and 42mm ion-plated screw-back case are all black. Only the date display gives you a flash of brightness. But don’t worry, we don’t think it’ll give you away whether you’re on a stealth mission or just playing hide and seek with the kiddos.

An exercise in luxury and minimalism, this Citizen watch, part of the Super Titanium™ family of watches, has a 41mm case — small enough to disappear under a suit coat. This offering from Citizen’s Super Titanium™ collections adds surface-hardening tech for a scratch-resistant finish and a next-to-skin feel that won’t irritate the wrist. It also resists sweat and water, which is a requirement for anyone who spends time outdoors. Finally, the dial is black with silver hands, with markers only present at the hour marks. The result is an uncluttered dial that helps you tell time while remaining simplistic.

We can’t say the metallic green dial on this Citizen Brycen Watch will make your co-workers green with envy (legally speaking, we can’t say that) — but is it possible? Certainly. The 43mm stainless steel case and fixed, textured bezel certainly catch our eye. The luminous hands and date display at the 3 o’clock mark don’t hurt either.
