Over the last few years, colored dials have become considerably more mainstream – even amongst the most classic Swiss brands. When choosing our favorites, we admired the brightest designs but veered more earthy in tone. As much as we take joy in seeing the occasional lemon yellow accented sports watch or bold red face, we’re partial to the versatility of inky blues and rich greens. Read on below for our favorites on Troverie this month – from a cool khaki TAG Heuer Aquaracer to a sixties inspired Glashütte Original.
As if the textured emerald face of this watch is not stunning enough, the sapphire caseback allows you to admire the skeletonized rotor with oscillating mass in 21-carat gold.

Dark blue and rose gold provide a beautiful juxtaposition on Raymond Weil’s 40 mm automatic Maestro. The delicate wave like pattern on the dial, which adds just the right amount of detail, is inspired by blues music.

Tetra Matcha might not sound like the average watch – and it isn’t. A soft green inspired by the very of-the-moment milky Japanese tea is paired with a slim, equally modern square case.

A sporty classic gets a military update in Khaki green with a lightweight textile strap. The most off-duty appropriate on our list, the Aquaracer is fittingly water resistant to 300 meters.

An elegant and legible dual time from independent watch maker Ulysse Nardin is great for travelers – especially those prone to time-zone hopping business trips.
