Blue dials

 
 trendy montres juillet
 

On holiday, casual chic watches show off prettily glinting dials of sky blue, navy or indigo. On the 2015 timewear scene blue is the new black.

 

Chopard
Wrist elegance.
Here we have the L.U.C Quattro Platinum 1 White, perfect for fashion-forward men with its navy dial that makes no style concessions. The platinum case sitting on a sophisticated blue alligator strap houses a hand-wound mechanical movement with a nine-day power reserve.

 

Chanel Horlogerie
Denim cool.
For the hot season the J12 G10 automatic watch dons indigo to go with denim. The case is hi-tech titanium ceramic with a one-way rotating bezel and the alligator strap matches the dial. The plus? It's water-resistant to 200m.

 

Rolex
Sports allure.
The Oyster Perpetual Day-Date has been reborn via a design update and a mechanical movement, the 3255 calibre. The referential chronometer draws all eyes with a 40mm 950-platinum case and an ice-blue dial featuring a diagonal motif on a sunray finish.
