    In white color, in black color, in pink color, etc.

    "Color" as a noun can be countable or uncountable. But a problem arises when I try to write "in black color", "in white color", etc. Suppose there is a watch coming in consistent black, is it grammatical to write:

    "This watch comes in black color"?


    I have this question because: if there's only 1 black color on the watch, shouldn't we say "in the black color/in a black color" instead of "in black color" which seems undefined?

    Re: In white color, in black color, in pink color, etc.

    We don't normally use the word 'color' after a color. We just say, "This watch comes in black".
