    This is a solid, well built gauge. Just used it in Cozumel for a week and it performed perfectly. The dial is easy to see and the black face looks really cool. I paired it with an XS Scuba HD Flex hose which has a very thin profile. You need a protective cover but I modified a 2.5” single console boot to cover it

What about "black face" instruments?

Blackface Aircraft AltimeterSPGs for diving are available with an aviation style face similar to the altimeter pictured at right. This type of face was adopted when aircraft began flying night missions and the instrumentation needed to be illuminated. A large expanse of white on the instrument panel reflected too much light, impacting night vision and flight safety. Thus the instrument face colors were reversed, in order to reduce reflected light and to protect the night vision of the pilot. Modern aircraft instruments also incorporate their own lighting, to eliminate the glare of external lighting reflecting from their covers.

When done properly, any type of luminescent dial SPG, white or black face, can be read in all light conditions, even low or no light conditions. To read your SPG in low or no light conditions, don't try to read the indications while shining your light at the face. Instead, hold your dive light directly against the SPG face for a moment, then move the light away. Now you can look at the gauge to easily read the SPG using only the back-light luminescence of the face, absent any reflected light or glare and without affecting your night vision.
