Green is a color that’s associated with renewal, growth, and nature — as well as ambition, money, and greed. It’s also simply a pleasing color that adds some style to your look.
Black, white, silver, and blue dials are more popular but do not forget about the green dial which we’ll probably see even more of in the coming year. If you’re still in doubt, shamrocks are green and those are said to bring good fortune.
The Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5168G (pictured above) came out in khaki green in 2019 and features a khaki green rubber strap and matching dial, both with the checkered Aquanaut motif. The “Jumbo” 18K white case is 42.2 mm in diameter, the movement is Patek’s beautifully finished in-house made automatic caliber 324 S C, and the retail price is $39,690.
Introduced just last month, the Omega Aqua Terra is now available with a khaki green-colored dial. It’s more subtle with a stainless steel bracelet than the Aquanaut or with an optional green alligator strap. The new Aqua Terra dial is khaki green and comes in a 41 mm diameter case, powered by Master Chronometer caliber 8900. Retail is $5,400 on a strap and $5,700 on a bracelet.
Bell & Ross BR V2-92 Military Green debuted last month and has more of an olive green hue to it than khaki. The watch comes in a 41 mm round stainless steel case with a domed sapphire crystal and is part of the company’s retro-style “Vintage” collection. Instead of green, there’s a black anodized aluminum bi-directional bezel, however, if you go with the strap it comes in a matching olive green elastic canvas material. The retail is $2,990 on a strap and $3,300 on a steel bracelet.
Also, unveiled last month, the Longines Hydroconquest Diver comes in two variations and two cases sizes (41 mm and 43 mm) — one in khaki green with a smooth dial surface, and the other is offered in a bright green with a vertical brushed surface (pictured). The latter is perhaps the most interesting of the bunch due to its unique ceramic dial. Both styles represent the most accessible price points in this comparison with retail prices of $1,600 for the smooth khaki green and $2,100 for the bright green version.
Originally released in 2010, the Rolex Submariner 116610LV, affectionately nicknamed the “Hulk” by collectors, is still selling strong. The standard 40 mm diameter stainless steel case Submariner with a black dial, black ceramic bezel, and no-date is an absolute classic, and one of the most affordable new Rolexes available at a retail price of $7,900. But the Submariner date with a bright green dial and ceramic bezel, equipped with the date and cyclops lens, makes for a flashy timepiece that’s an even better investment despite having a retail price of $9,350 — if you can get one that is.
