Patek-Philippe-Nautilus-5711_1A-014-Green-Dial

Our 25 Favorite Green Dial Watches at European Watch Company

If we had to come up with a list of the most popular watch dial colors of all time, the first two would undoubtedly be black and white — probably in that order. Number three is a little less clear, but blue is probably the safest best. These three colors are pretty much the default at this point, classic, if not a little conservative. Green, in all its glorious shades, would be our number four pick, and here is where things get interesting. We’ve put together a list of the 25 leanest, meanest and greenest watches out there. Let’s go!

Patek Philippe Pilot Travel Time Chronograph Ref. 5924G-010

Patek-Philippe-Pilot-Travel-Time-Chronograph-5924G-010

The Patek Philippe 5924G-010 Pilot Travel Time Chronograph is one of the newer arrivals in the brand’s surprisingly contemporary line of Pilot’s watches which made its debut in 2015. This 42mm chunk of white gold packs a lot into its vintage-inspired case, featuring two time zones, a flyback chronograph, and a date coupled with the local time. Of course, the key takeaway for our purposes today is the richly lacquered sunburst green dial, which plays perfectly against the highly contrasting dial hardware.

Patek Philippe Split Second Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5204G-001

Another exceptional dial coming from the hallowed halls of Patek Philippe is the exit-watch-worthy reference 5204G, a split-second chronograph perpetual calendar released in 2022. This grand complication first saw the light of day in 2012, but it took a decade for the brand to add a green dial as an option. If you ask us, it was well worth the wait! This 40mm white gold watch looks impeccably sophisticated with its softly sun-brushed olive green dial.

Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 5711/1A-014

Of course, if you asked anyone to name the most famous green-dialed Patek from recent years, there’s no doubt that most people would answer with the Nautilus 5711/IA-014. Released in 2021 as part of the swan song farewell tour for the 5711, this steel Nautilus with a green dial was white-hot when it hit the market. Even now, three years later, this is still one of the most coveted versions of the steel Nautilus, a surprising late-game twist on the classic Genta formula. Who knows, if Patek ever brings the steel time-only Nautilus back into the catalogue, green might be the new blue!

Patek Philippe Aquanaut “Khaki” Ref. 5168G-010

If you crave the everyday appeal of the Nautilus, but steel bracelets aren’t your speed, the obvious choice is the Patek Philippe Aquanaut. This ref. 5168G-010 seen here sports a “khaki” green dial and stands out from the crowd thanks to its matching rubber strap. This particular style of strap was popularized by none other than John Mayer, who bought a quantity of green OEM straps to fit on his Aquanaut Travel Time before Patek Philippe discontinued them (only to make them available on this model a few years later). Regardless of your abilities with a guitar, there’s no denying the green dial and green strap of this white gold reference are undeniably cool.

Patek Philippe World Time Chronograph Ref. 5930P-001

While the other Patek Philippe watches on this list feature dials ranging from olive to khaki, the hand-guillochéd central dial of this stunning world-time chronograph is a rich, vibrant, and emerald tone. This bright hue is picked up in the printed text on the outer city ring and in the alligator leather strap. Featuring a finely proportioned 39.5mm platinum case and easy to use automatic world time chronograph calibre, this is a timeless piece. But that dial!

Pasha de Cartier Middle East Edition Ref. WSPA0022

Fun fact: the Pasha — Cartier’s first take on a round-cased sports watch — was actually a Gerald Genta design. Inspired by a piece made in the 1930’s for the Pasha of Marrakesh, Thami El Glaoui, the sultan requested a luxurious wristwatch that he could wear for royal duties as well as in his swimming pool. There have been plenty of Pasha variants produced since its introduction in 1985, but few are as eye-catching as this model that was made for the Middle Eastern market with its vibrant green dial and Arabic numerals.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra Thin Limited for Italy Ref. 15128ST.OO.0944ST.01

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is, of course, one of the GOATs of the sports watch genre, and deservedly so! This white gold piece is particularly special as it is a limited edition of just 50 pieces made for the Italian market. It features an unusual dial layout, with radial Arabic numerals in a broad hour track, a slender outer minute track, and the central tapisserie section. On its own, this unusual configuration is eye-catching, but add the rich, deep-green dial, and this Royal Oak turns into something for true connoisseurs.

Audemars Piguet Code 11:59 Chronograph Ref. 26393ST.OO.A056KB.01

When it debuted, the Code 11.59 collection raised many an eyebrow, with plenty of die-hard watch collectors not appreciating what Audemars Piguet was looking to achieve with its complex new collection. Time has passed, the dust has settled, and now the collection is earning the praise it deserves. This Code 11:59 Chronograph in stainless steel is a great example of just how good the line is, with a new chronograph movement, sophisticated, complex case, and a subtle green dial that just oozes sophistication.

Rolex Daytona Ref. 116508 “John Mayer”

In 2019 John Mayer appeared on Hodinkee’s Talking Watches for the second time and said “the green dial, gold Daytona is still out there … and it’s the future thing.” While this might have been true at the time of filming, Mayer’s endorsement ensured this precious metal Daytona immediately catapulted into unobtanium status. Of course, he’s not wrong — it is objectively an incredible (and perhaps perfect) watch. Now that its been discontinued, its harder to get than ever. Happy hunting!

Rolex Submariner Ref. 116610LV “Hulk”

It’s hard to believe that when Rolex released its first Submariner with a splash of green – 2003’s ‘Kermit’ – many Rolex fans thought it was too much. Fast forward to 2010 when Rolex doubled down with the all-green 116610LV, which boasted not only a maxi case but also a green Cerachrom bezel and vivid green dial. It’s a bigger, bolder version of the Kermit and we think the ‘Hulk’ moniker fits is perfectly.

Rolex Datejust Ref. 126200 “Palm”

While the ‘Hulk’ and the ‘John Mayer’ are perhaps the most famous green-dialed Rolex models, they aren’t the only contenders. One of the more interesting options is the ref. 126200 Datejust with an olive green ‘palm’ patterned dial. The distinctive fronds are laser engraved into the sunray dial to create a effect that is just as lush as its namesake.

Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Classic Green Marble Boutique Edition Ref. Q38484AF

What’s better than a watch with one stunning dial? How about a watch with two? This boutique edition Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso from 2016 is a Duoface, with one dial featuring the classic white Reverso dial. The other, though, is something special. The central dial and subsidiary 24-hour indicator are rich hunter green, but it’s the stunning green marble outer dial, full of inclusions and fine details, that really adds to the on-the-wrist impact.

Jaeger LeCoultre Grande Reverso “Tribute to 1931” London Flagship Limited Edition Ref. 278.85.3L

Another notable Reverso is this popular (and sadly discontinued) ‘Tribute to 1931’ model that was made to echo the lines and clean dial of the original 1931 model. A limited edition of only 26 pieces, this Reverso with its British Racing Green dial was made to honor the brand’s London Flagship boutique on Old Bond Street. The reverse of the model features a solid caseback, finely engraved with another famous London timekeeper, Big Ben.

Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional “Moonshine” Ref. 310.60.42.50.10.001

While the Omega Speedmaster earned its reputation as one of the most proven and capable tool chronographs ever produced, when cased in precious metal, the Speedy sings a totally different tune that is impossible to resist. The mix of luxury and utility is a heady juxtaposition, and this “Moonshine” gold model with a deep, refined green dial is simply sumptuous. For those of you that can’t get your hands on the John Mayer Daytona, this is definitely a worthy alternative.

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Ref. 210.32.42.20.10.001

If you like your Omegas green but need something sportier than a solid gold Speedmaster, you can’t go wrong with the Seamaster Diver 300M. This watch is about as green as a watch can be, featuring a green fitted rubber strap, ceramic bezel, and wavy dial. The color adds flair to this modern classic. James Bond would certainly approve.

MB&F x H. Moser & Cie LM101 Cosmic-Green Limited Edition

What do you get when you pair two of the most innovative and exciting names in modern independent watchmaking? You get the MB&F x H. Moser & Cie LM101. The topside architecture from MB&F’s Legacy Machine line meets Moser’s minimalistic approach to stunning effect. This limited edition features a fumé dial in ‘Cosmic Green’, and really is out of this world.

IWC Pilot’s Chronograph Top Gun “Woodland Edition” Ref. IW389106

IWC pushes it to the limit with this verdant take on their popular Top Gun Pilot’s Chronograph. As part of a series of releases that see the brand experimenting with color and ceramics, this ‘Woodland’ edition boasts a green ceramic case in addition to the green dial and strap. At 44.5mm in diameter, it’s guaranteed to stand out.

H. Moser & Cie Streamliner Centre Seconds Ref. 6200-1200

The Streamliner is H. Moser & Cie’s entrant into the popular integrated sports watch category, and thanks to the model’s futuristic lines and incredible segmented bracelet, it’s rapidly become a fan-favorite since its 2020 debut. This steel model adds Moser’s typically magical dial into the mix. Here, it’s called ‘Matrix Green’, and once you see it in real life, the red pill will no longer be an option.

F.P. Journe Chronometre Souverain Dubai Limited Edition

As F.P. Journe’s stock continues to rise to ever greater heights, the appetite for rare and unusual models continues to grow as well. This Chronometre Souverain ticks both those boxes. Made to celebrate the opening of the brand’s Dubai boutique in 2019, the green dial of this platinum watch is rich and mossy, symbolizing chance, fortune, and fertility.

Glashutte Original PanoMaticLunar Ref. 1-90-02-23-35-30

We’ve already established that green and gold is a winning combination, so it should come as no surprise that most major brands have their own take on the flavor. Glashutte Original’s key model, the PanomaticLunar, seen here in a 40mm version, is no exception, and the complicated dial design works well in green, especially when framed by the rose gold case.

MB&F M.A.D Edition MAD 1 Green

MB&F’s quasi-secret ‘friends and family’ watch, the M.A.D. 1, was an explosively popular and accessible entry into the typically rarified air of MB&F ownership. This green edition from 2023 is the third installment in the series, and no less popular, with demand far outstripping the 1500 piece supply. With its quirky charm and reasonable price, it’s easy to see the appeal.

Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight Ref. 79018V

It’s no surprise that Tudor has leaned heavily into the Black Bay — so much so that the neo-vintage diver is synonymous with the brand for most. However, Tudor still clearly has the capacity to surprise us, as this unprecedented precious metal version proves. No one expected a solid yellow gold Black Bay, but as you can see, it works.

Breitling Premier B09 Chronograph 40 “Pistachio” Ref. AB0930D31L1P1

The majority of this list has featured green dials in various shades of forest and khaki, but you can always trust Breitling to do things a little differently. This 40mm Premier – the brand’s dressier chronograph – avoids a more conventional green in favor of a soft pistachio, a rich pastel hue that is as luxurious as it is surprising.

Laurent Ferrier Galet Micro Rotor Ref. FBN229.01

There are limited editions, and then there are limited editions. With only eight pieces made in total, this Laurent Ferrier Galet Micro Rotor Square in steel is very much the latter. With its vibrant green dial and unusual “California” layout (Roman numerals on the top half of the dial and Arabics on the bottom), this watch is a spectacular example of Laurent Ferrier’s work.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe “Mokarran” Ref. 005-0153-NABA

The Blancpain Bathyscaphe is one of the all-time great dive watch designs, featuring a clean aesthetic that pairs effortlessly with its peerless pedigree. The ‘Mokarran’ limited edition from 2020 is one of the most striking examples produced in recent years. Made to support research into and conservation of Hammerhead Sharks, it also features a captivating shimmering green dial and bezel combo.
