It’s springtime, which means the trees are blossoming, the grass is once again tasting the sweet rainwater and beginning to grow again, and the birds are coming back to poop all over our cars.
It’s easy to be in good spirits with so much beautiful green life happening around us, so we wanted to celebrate by talking about something just as inevitable as the coming and going of seasons – luxury watches.
Watches aren’t just a great way to express ourselves, they’re also a reflection of how the world is affecting us. If you’re feeling down about something, you might wear a muted blue Movado on your wrist. If the hot summer nights have you feeling adventurous, a pink Dior might be a good choice.
So, to show off how this spring is making us feel wonderful, we’d like to talk about green watches.
Below, you’ll find a list of our top 5 green dial watches that we have in stock right now. Be quick, though. Many of these are very limited and will probably go fast.
Okay, we’re starting strong with a beautiful green dive watch from Japanese watchmaker Bulova. This is a luxury watch that makes us feel the spring in our step with its large but light aesthetic.
The green is somewhat aquatic-feeling, which makes sense, given the nature of a dive watch. It’s like a sunny day in the Pacific ocean. We love how the coloring extends to the first quarter of the rotating bezel.
The design on the dial itself kind of resembles a sonar screen like the ones you see in a movie. The circle near the tip of the second hand is like a moving blip.
We’re big fans of Bulova’s Oceanographers to begin with, but this beautiful dial makes this one of our top five picks for best green watches.
Oris has always felt to us to have a strong connection with natural design and inspiration. Sure, they've been championing foundations dedicated to cleaning up the oceans for a while now, but it’s more than that. It’s something about their aesthetics. And that’s probably never been more on display than it is with this limited edition Big Crown.
Right off the bat, we’re simply entranced by the way the cool green dial combines with the light brown leather strap to create an illusion of foliage on a tree. This might be the most springtimiest luxury watch we’ve seen, to be honest.
Of course, the green combined with the Oris Pointer Date stylings is absolute perfection. They even made the tip of the date hand a slightly lighter shade of green to stand out while keeping the theme.
We know that the Big Crown is technically a pilot’s watch, but this one makes us think of a picnic in the woods, seated firmly on the ground.
Don’t bother telling TAG Heuer to stop and smell the roses. We don’t think the racing-oriented luxury watchmaker has ever slowed down enough to even see the roses.
Instead, this green dialed Carrera Calibre speeds up and turns springtime into a blur of dark forest tones flying past in the wind.
The Calibre Heuer 02 is a finely tuned engine that powers an automatic movement built to squeeze every possible second out of our favorite season. The chronograph functionality is precise and powerful, and the look of the bezel is decidedly racer-chic.
If you’re the kind of person who likes to always be moving in the spring, this is the watch for you.
Baume & Mercier make some of the classiest Swiss luxury watches out there while still experimenting and keeping the excitement in their designs. Take this green Riviera, for example.
The springtime green aesthetic covers almost the entirety of the watch, giving off strong “the trees are green again” vibes.
The detailing on the green dial is textured to give it a more 3-dimensional feel, and the wavey pattern is amplified by the reflective nature of the dial’s material. The silver toned case and bezel do their best to stay out of the way of the color, and they mostly do a great job of it. However, the bezel itself is interesting enough to steal a little bit of attention.
The green rubber dial completes the look and really ties together the whole spring theme on display.
This Omega Seamaster embodies the entire spirit of this blog post so perfectly. Of course, you can always count on Omega to hit a grand slam with any of their watches, so that’s no surprise.
Let’s start with that incredible dial. It’s like a green springtime sunrise. The segmented horizontal pattern effectively corrals any light that hits it and directs it precisely based on how the wearer moves their wrist. The detailing is absolutely flawless, and the refined minimal pointed hands and hour markers are the perfect accompaniment.
The green alligator leather strap is the perfect way to wrap up this incredible watch.
