What are examples of large companies or major brands that use mostly black and white photography on their website?

I'm looking for examples of large companies or major brands that use black and white photography prominently on their website. Examples don't have to be US-based.

Someone told me there are none out there, but I find that very hard to believe.

Abercrombie and Fitch. The actual clothing pictures when you get to the "what do I want to buy" pages are in color, but the ad shots (on the main pages and if you click on "casting" are all in black & white).

Most of the print advertising for Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey has been black and white over the years. I believe a lot of it has been shot by Mark Tucker, who actually has a Jack Daniel's link on his web site.

Rapha (cycling gear) uses a fair bit of black-and-white, but like the Abercrombie and Fitch example, most of the product pages are in colour.

The Apple "Think Different" ad campaign used black and white photography. Since then Apple has occasionally featured the Think Different slogan and black and white photographs on its website, including as recently as 2005 when Rosa Parks died and 2003 when Gregory Hines died.
