Eye-Catching Timepieces to Colour Up Your Life
By Watches of Switzerland Group | 3 minute read
From subtle forest green and oceanic blue to eye-popping tropical orange and yellow, this year’s trend for colourful dials means there are now even more ways to inject colour into your every day.
You could argue a Rolex Oyster Perpetual is always going to turn heads, but that’s especially true of one with a yellow dial. And with Rolex’s automatic calibre 3230, and a waterproof Oyster 36mm case in the brand’s own hard-wearing Oystersteel, this watch will be brightening up your days for many years to come.
OMEGA DE VILLE TRÉSOR MASTER CHRONOMETER
This 18-carat yellow-gold 40mm watch wears its links to OMEGA’s 1949 Tresor line on its sleeve, but while its exterior looks vintage, the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8927 that keeps things moving is one of today’s most advanced winding movements.

IWC’s pilot’s watches are hugely popular, and after one look at this new steel 41mm version, it’s easy to see why. The dial colour is enough to make anyone green with envy! Then there’s a chronograph, day and date display, and hacking seconds – all useful tools for fighter pilots and civilians alike.
The latest edition to the Armed Forces Collection, this Bremont Argonaut 42mm steel dive watch cleverly contrasts orange and Super-LumiNova elements with an ocean-coloured dial, resulting in superb legibility. It comes with a lockable crown, bi-directional bezel and is water-resistant to 300m.
BOVET MISS AUDREY SWEET ART
Believe it or not, this pink and yellow dial is made from specially treated sugar crystals. As if using sugar on the dial wasn’t sweet enough, Bovet has embellished the watch with hands that create the shape of a heart at 12 o’clock, and its ‘Amadéo’ case easily converts from wristwatch to pendant to table clock.

Stainless steel (both PVD-coated and left au naturel), a green ceramic and steel unidirectional rotating bezel and matt-green dial come together to create this impressive 41mm automatic watch. It’s also waterproof to 300m, so you’ll look good in and out of the water.
Each of DOXA’s watches come in a rainbow of bright shades. In this case it’s the brand’s ‘professional’ orange – a pleasing contrast to the 42mm ultra-lightweight forged carbon case. Elsewhere we find a domed sapphire crystal and a COSC-certified automatic movement with a 38-hour power reserve. The strap even comes with the ability to extend so it can be fitted over a wetsuit.
With its round, stainless-steel 40mm case, hand-wound Breitling B09 movement, tachymeter and twin subdials, you could call this the quintessential chronograph. But when you clock the pistachio green dial, you have to rethink – because classic chronographs don’t usually come with something as cool as a pistachio dial.
