If you follow our blog then you may have noticed an increase of green watch releases from luxury brands such as Raymond Weil and Longines. These two historic brands are not the only ones to release luxury green watches within the market with the likes of Certina, Rado and Oris also following suit.
Here’s a preview of Longine’s new green HydroConquest:
Last year we saw the trend ‘All Blue Watches’ emerge, inspired by the colour palette of 2019. This year luxury watch brands have paid close attention to the colour palette for 2020 which includes the green tones we have seen across the watch market.
Longines is a brand that not only prioritises high quality within their watchmaking but also elite and luxury style. The HydroConquest range, first unveiled in 2007, comes with all the aesthetic features of a diving watch. Some of the core features of this model are the solid stainless steel construction, unidirectional rotating bezel and water resistance up to 30 bar (300 metres). The watch is powered by automatic movement with a L888 calibre and self winding mechanical movement beating at 25’200 vibrations per hour and providing 64 hours of power reserve.
Oris is well known for creating an all mechanical range which is rare within the watch industry. The Aquis collection is a functional watch series that doesn’t compromise on style, a line that is also designed to live below the waves. This particular model fashions a brown leather strap that has been combined with a mesmerising shade of green on the dial. This watch is powered with automatic movement beating at 28’000 vibrations per hour and providing a 38 hour power reserve.
The luxury green dial trend not only exists within men’s watches but has also made an appearance within women’s watches, specifically Rado’s True Thinline collection. The True Thinline collection is the slimmest ceramic watch that Rado has ever produced. Hailed as a marvel of engineering when it was first released in 2011, this watch is powered by quartz movement that is only 1 millimetre thick! The True Thinline collection comes in a variety of different colours, including this beautiful shade of green, complimented by gold hands and markers.
The Freelancer collection, crafted by Raymond Weil is one of their bestsellers. This watch stands out not only for its colour but for the movement that is exclusive to the Freelancer collection. Developed back in 2017, Raymond Weil created an exclusive in house movement which was produced by manufacturer, Sellita. The movement was called RW1212 and was named with the brands postcode in mind, the headquarters based in Grand-Lancey. This new model features 42mm dial which is framed by a green satin chapter ring. The open aperture design takes centre stage, showing off the exclusive automatic movement developed by the brand. To find out more about the new release and exclusive movement, click here.
