Best Green Watches in 2021
Is green the new black? Luxury watchmakers think so! Let’s explore some of the trending wristwatches that enthusiasts are crazy about.
Actions speak louder than words, and although the high-end Swiss watchmakers do not say it outright in unison, they certainly are showing it in some of their best-selling watches. In our experience, the common card that watchmakers had to play to excite horophiles and collectors in the past was to create a blue dial version of a popular silver or black dial watch, but these days, they have exhausted that card, and horology enthusiasts don’t get impressed that easily anymore. Now they have to really come up with new styles that align with existing and up-and-coming fashion trends. Check out some of the top green watches that watch collectors and watch enthusiasts buy up like hotcakes.
Today we'll feast our eyes on a nice assortment of some of the hottest wristwatches that either features green watch dials, green bezel rings, or green watch bands, and more. Let's get right to it, shall we?
To search through all watches with green dials, use the button below:
First, we'll give two great watches from top-rated brands. On the left, we have the Longines Legend Diver Automatic model # L3.7126.96.36.199 Bronze. On the right, we have the Rolex Day-Date 36mm in Yellow Gold model # 128238 Green Graduated Diamond. Both watches combine two trending features: a graduated (fumé) dial and the color green in the dial. This combination provides a breathtaking look on the wrist and contrasts well with both the brown leather strap's warm colors on the Longines timepiece and the Rolex's yellow gold bracelet.
The next two wristwatches that we will showcase are the very vintage Oris Big Crown Pointer Date 80th Anniversary Edition model # 01 754 7741 3167-07 5 20 58BR on the left and the Zenith Pilot Type 20 reference # 29.2430.679/63.I001 Adventure. Both of these wristwatches have not only a green dial but another vintage-inspired feature, a bronze case that, with its warm color, really brings out the green in the dial. Like the previous two wristwatches, the Zenith above also features a gradient dial making it look about as vintage as it gets.
Our next two wristwatches with green dials are a little more bougie, and while they are not necessarily vintage-looking like some of the previously mentioned watches, they really go all about the green. On the left, we have the Jaquet Droz Les Ateliers d'Art Petite Heure Minute Paillonnée reference # j005033245. This is a very limited edition with only 8 pieces worldwide and uses a Paillon decoration done by creating gold ornaments using a thin leaf of metal. A green alligator leather strap, green pailonnée large enamel-coated dial with a white main dial on an 18kt rose gold case.
On the right, we have the Breitling Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing model # ab0118a11L1x1. This watch features a green soft calfskin leather strap with a diamond-quilted pattern with white stitching. It has a stainless steel case and features a chronograph complication (stopwatch feature), and uses an in-house caliber B01 with a +/- 70-hour power reserve.
The nest two watches with green dials that we would like to feature are the Glashutte Original PanoMaticLunar 40mm model # 1-90-02-13-32-31 shown on the left and enlarged so you can see the detail in the guilloché pattern, on the dial, The Glashutte Original is a German-made watch, that has an exquisitely finished movement and features two off-center dials. The upper dial displays the hour and minutes, while the smaller overlapping dial beneath it displays the seconds. It has a large two-disk date display at the 4 o'clock position and a moonphase window at the 2 o'clock position. It comes on a brown alligator strap and has a 40mm stainless steel case.
On the right side, you can see the Hublot Classic Fusion Automatic 45mm model # 511.nx.8970.lr. This watch has a self-winding movement (not a quartz movement) and has a warmer shade of green used on the dial and alligator leather and rubber strap. Its 45mm titanium case has a brushed finish. Like all of the Classic Fusion watches, it has the "porthole" look that resembles a submarine hatch. It is powered by a Hublot Caliber HUB1112 self-winding movement and is comprised of 63 parts.
Of course, this would not be a legitimate list if we failed to mention two of the most popular green divers watches ever made from Rolex's Submariner collection. They each feature a stainless steel Oyster bracelet with luminous cathedral-style hands making it easy to tell the time in low light conditions. On the left, the Rolex Submariner Hulk (no longer in production but was highly popular and considered pretty exclusive). Both these two products feature ceramic bezel rings that are highly scratch-resistant and don't fade in color when exposed to UV light for long periods of time.
On the right-hand side is the newer model of the green Submariner known as the Rolex 126610LV Kermit that features a green bezel ring and black dial. Other improvements include a longer power reserve duration of 70-hours and the Glidelock extension system in the clasp. These two dive models are the perfect blend of style and function. They are for those that are looking to find a Swiss timepiece from a highly recognized brand that can align with the green trend and at the same time hold up in terms of water resistance. They each have a rating of 300m/1000ft of resistance, and this is enough to accommodate board diving, scuba diving, and most impact water sports.
