An often overlooked accent color, green strikes the absolute perfect balance between classy and unexpected. A green dial watch is rarely the first piece added to a well curated watch collection, but we strongly encourage branching out once the classic basics are taken care of. Colored dials are a perfect opportunity to let your personality and sense of style shine, and green is one of our personal favorites. With its many shades, it can take a look from playful to formal-sophisticated and everything in between. At The Watch Resource, our vote always goes to making a statement while retaining the overall feel of elegance, and a green dial does exactly that.
Let’s take a look at some of the best options on the market today, across different price ranges!
