Mohak Gupta

Is green the new blue? It seems so this year. At Watches & Wonders 2021, luxury watchmakers like Rolex, TAG Heuer, and IWC premiered their timepieces featuring green dials, and watch enthusiasts seem to be gladly accepting the playfulness of its many hues. Manufactures have paired green dials with green rubber or fabric straps and silver bracelets, all of which have come together to create standout designs. Here's our pick of six watches that are making dials in green look cool.

1. Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 Ref. 126200

2. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver Ref. 15720ST.OO.A052CA.01

3. TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300 Calibre 5 Automatic Ref. WBP208B.BF0631

4. Breitling Premier B21 Chronograph Tourbillon 42 Bentley Limited Edition

5. Patek Philippe Ref. Ref. 5711/1A-014 Nautilus 6. IWC Pilot's Watch Chronograph 41 Ref. IW388104

ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUAL DATEJUST 36 REF . 126200

5.07 lakh (approximately)

THE OYSTER Perpetual Datejust 36 Ref. 126200 draws inspiration from tropical forests for its olive green dial that features a palm motif. This delightful timepiece comes housed in a 36mm Oyster case, which is fitted with a domed bezel. The green dial flaunts hour markers made from 18K gold for a long-lasting lustre. This dial, like most Rolex dials, is manufactured in-house and are largely handmade.

Caliber 3235 drives this watch, which delivers a power reserve of around 70 hours. The new Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 is water-resistant up to 100 metres and is offered on an Oystersteel bracelet.
