The face is more of a butter cream color that doesn't show up well in the picture, it has a light flower design . The face is large, but not too large, a nice it between size that I think is stylish. The strap is very comfortable, a nice deep burgundy that goes well with all neutrals including the greens and grays, along with the obvious blues and whites. I searched forever for a watch on Amazon , there are so many to choose from. I wanted something that would last mostly in the warm summer months with getting wet here and there, and be comfortable when I get warm. It is warm here already in March and the watch has been great. I've had the rubberized straps in the past because I thought they looked nice, but in the summer they didn't work so well, I felt like they were stuck to my skin. A great buy, the indiglo is a great feature as well.
