What do you think is the best Hermès face to use to replicate one of their mechanical wristwatches and how would you set it up?

The new two color faces seem to be designed for the AW. What’s the best color combo for a steel Link bracelet, for the ebony band, for the multi color (clown) band. I’m not good with color coordination.

You want other people to help design a watch face for every single one of your bands? Grow up, do it yourself.

With the link bracelet I like Argent/Rouge.

With the Fauve deployant, I like Argent/Rouge again, occasionally Orange.

I bought this (linked below) black leather strap with orange stitching, looks great with the Orange face. Also has a reasonably decent deployant, not as good as the Hermes one obviously, but good enough.

Finally, this (linked below) blue leather strap looks great with the Feu two tone face. Don’t use the two tone faces very often as they are so bright in dimmer conditions/evening. Also matches the Argent/Rouge face well.

Most of the time I still wear the link bracelet (bought with my S2), and the Hermes deployant for any leisure activity where I’m not getting wet or sweaty.

S/he says

“I’m not good with color coordination.”

That’s enough for me. I’ve relatives that are colour blind, without advice they’d look like Pennywise lol.

Wow, you're a sourpuss! I didn't ask to have every face setup. If you didn't think it was a fun question, why bother responding??

I mean really? There's like what, 4 Hermes faces? Just scroll through them and pick one. It's not hard.
I'm shocked at the negativity and anger coming from @Jessem1133 and @mcdj If you think my question is stupid, why bother responding? I wasn't asking YOU, but to the whole board.
