Oh man, I always forget about the Monza. That thing is fucking sweet.
Black pushers, crown and date wheel would make it just about perfect.
Yeah, I’m going to have to disagree (respectfully, of course) with that one. I think the chrome pushers a ala the original really stand out—in a good way—and provide very attractive contrast. I’m not normally a black watch wearer (have sold every one I’ve tried), but this one pushes all the right buttons and could make me a believer.

I’ve tried that one and its incredible.

Everything that I would recommend has already been mentioned here. The all black Seiko “MM200” is great, and Breitling, Sinn and IWC all make great all black watches. My choice if I had the money would be the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon.

This is about as black as it can be and still readable:

Kinda hard to tell from this photo, but this is Breitling's Blacksteel – another one I've always really liked. Would prefer this over a DLC'd Pelagos, I'd say...
