    Guess it would depend on the watch that sported the black dial...

    4992B... white hands

    other black dials.... anyone's guess...

    white
    gold
    silver

    one would think they would contrast the dial.

    Several years ago, I observed a Keystone Howard with a black dial. I believe that it had gold embossed numbers and gold hands.

    At that time, the watch was located at the Fredonia, NY Historical and museum.
