WatchOS 6 Turned everything monochrome?

So I just updated my Apple Watch Series 4 to WatchOS 6, and immediately it turned my Infograph watch face monochrome. What's weird is that Greyscale mode isn't enabled in settings and everything else other than the watch face is rendered in correct colours. Has anyone else encountered this? Rebooting the watch does not rectify the issue, the only fix was to change the watch face colour to either black or white, which ironically re-enables colours for complications. Here are a few pictures:

The watch face is rendered in black and bright white

Screeshots also show up as black and white

The preview screen shows up the same on the iPhone Watch app too

Greyscale is not enabled

Other UI elements display in the correct colour

If I try to add a new watch face, it displays in correct colour​

I went through this as well, but noticed some of my infograph faces were doing this but not others. The only faces that are in color are the first two color options, black or white. If you have selected any other color (which was for the dial and second hand before), all of the complications are in monochrome. I just switched my saved faces to the black option with (red second hand) so the color is back.

That's really odd. I've been on the beta for quite some time and haven't seen that happen in any of the updates on my Series 4.

Thank you for posting this, knew this forum would have the solution. I'm one of those people that likes to keep my watch the way I set it up in the first place - and infographic is a fantastic watch face for so many reasons. Shame it isn't quite as customisable as before.
