Dials go green

British Racing, olive, or spruce green… Sober and elegant, the colour of hope and nature is revisiting the dials of the most popular watches. Take heed: future collectors have their sights set!

Patek Philippe is honouring its legendary Nautilus collection by adorning this steel watch with an olive green "sunburst" dial and diamond-set bezel or not, marking the end of its reference 5711/1A. At Audemars Piguet, it’s the Royal Oak that sees green. In this series, the Royal Oak "Jumbo" Extra-Thin 950 platinum model features a smoked green dial. While the limited edition Royal Oak Chronographe Automatique marries an 18-carat yellow gold case with a green "Grande Tapisserie" dial. Unless, of course, you would prefer one of the three Tourbillons Volants Automatiques, in pink gold or titanium.
Jaeger-LeCoultre’s total look, the Reverso Tribute Small Seconds, sports a sunray-brushed lacquer dial and matching leather strap evoking the pine forests surrounding the Manufacture in the Vallée-de-Joux. At Piaget, verdant foliage colours the world's thinnest mechanical timepiece, awarded the Aiguille d'Or at the prestigious Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) 2020. The Altiplano Ultimate Concept, just 2mm thick, embellished with a deep forest green dial. The sportier Zenith Defy 21 Urban Jungle asserts itself
in khaki.
