Cool Or Unique? 2 Green Dial Watches For You

We’ll keep seeing blue, gray, and of course black and white dial colors in the watch market. Over the last several years, luxury watch brands have started to embrace green as a featured color on watch dials. Here, we take a look at 3 green-dial timepieces that look amazing.

Panerai PAM00736

The Radiomir 1940 3 Days Acciaio (PAM00736) comes in the old-school Panerai size of 47mm, which will be too large for many would-be customers but certainly makes a definitive statement. The stainless steel watch recalls Panerai’s famed design of 1940, when the Royal Italian Navy’s elite underwater commandos wore such pieces on their mission to destroy enemy ships. And it is powered by the P.3000 manual wind mechanical calibre with a power reserve of three days. The indications at the green sandwich dial are luminous with beige Super-LumiNova and they’re within the classic replica Panerai review style: large figures and linear hour markers, small seconds counter, and date window at 3 o’clock.

Solid and reliable, the movement has three brushed-finish bridges protecting the mechanism and a bridge with twin supports for the balance wheel 13.2 mm in diameter, which oscillates at a frequency of 3 Hz. This attractive watch is waterproof to 10 bar (a depth of about 100 metres). Priced at $9,200 it’s the most affordable way to get into one of these exclusive new green dialed Panerais.

Rolex Submariner 116610 LV

Released in 2010, the Rolex Submariner Reference 116610LV immediately became a must-have for watch collectors and fashionistas alike. It was hardly that I didn’t like it – especially as I am pretty sure green is my favorite color. It is beloved for its unorthodox color, and unique strength. Obviously, the main characteristic of the watch is the color of its bezel and dial, but another important feature is the Cerachrom bezel (unidirectional rotatable, 60-minute graduated). The 40 mm diameter case is made of the very resistant 904L steel. And the watch comes equipped with caliber 3135, an in-house movement boasting a power reserve of 48 hours.

Water resistant to 300 meters (as if anyone doesn’t know the Rolex Submariner’s iconic water resistance rating) the Rolex Submariner makes the perfect daily sport watch with its relatively thick case and classy look that can actually become formal when necessary. In black, the Rolex Submariner has the versatility of a black tuxedo (James Bond does sporty stuff in a tux), but what about in green?

Why Are Luxury Watches So Expensive?

A luxury wristwatch is a great way to show your status, your taste, your style. We all love luxury watches, right? However, it’s a well-known fact that luxury watches can be very expensive. Whether you’re rocking a Rolex or a Casio, they’re both doing the exact same thing – telling the time. Right? But why is a Rolex so much expensive more than a Casio, and you still want to spend your fortune to buy a Rolex?

First and foremost, the brand name will increase the cost because you’re not just purchasing a watch, you’re purchasing a Rolex . Established in 1905, Rolex is known globally as the biggest Swiss luxury watchmaker. Similar to other luxury goods like designer bags, jewellery and high-end fashion brands, Rolex is able to charge its customers more because of the brand it has built up over the past decades. Even buyers who are not watch enthusiasts and who do not fully appreciate the craftsmanship and technical complexities that goes behind producing a Rolex are willing to pay a high price for it.

The material of the watch adds hugely to the price. Luxurious brands use high quality materials, such as excellent steel grade, and/or expensive, fine, precious materials (gold, platinum, diamonds, and jewels, ect). Quality materials also add to the functionality, performance, and quality of the timepiece. They also use expensive, handmade movements within their timepieces, which can add to the high price. Luxurious brands can spend thousands of pounds on one movement, though these are usually found within limited edition pieces.

Luxury watch brands would normally involve more manual labor than say lower end brands, and in some few and exceptional cases, some ultra luxury watch brands, such as Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet replicas, Vacheron Constantin, etc. might in fact be 100% handmade. The more manual labor that is needed for making a watch, and the longer the watchmaker needs to work on the timepiece, the more the timepiece will cost. And brands with high demand often don’t have enough products for their market, which can increase demand and bottleneck production. For that reason, high end luxury watches yield a slower return on investments. High end luxury timepieces are therefore not an economy of scale, so a premium price needs to be charged per manufactured unit.

Know More About Tool Watches

If you are fairly active and needs something you can wear every day, then you can choose a tool watch. The tool watch is designed for a specific purpose more than telling time. As the moniker connotes, a tool watch must be durable and adjustable, which has multiple uses. Specifically, certain job functions are what separate a tool watch from a dress watch.

Despite the ubiquity of electronic timekeeping in this day and age, there was a period during WWII and later in the 1950’s that the concept of a “tool watch” was born, and Rolex certainly defined the concept. Rolex innovations and patents such as being water tight, self-winding, and readable at night underlie the concept of a tool watch. Rolex replica watches has links to many areas of specialist timekeeping, and the connection with diving that has made the greatest impact on the public at large. The Submariner was launched in 1953, and it was the first divers’ watch waterproof to a depth of 100 metres. It had a rotatable bezel so that divers could easily read their dive time. The Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller was presented in 1967, waterproof to 610 metres, with helium escape valve for use during long decompression phases in hyperbaric chambers. In 1978, it was the turn of the Sea-Dweller 4000, waterproof to 1,220 metres.

Wristwatches have been a part of aviation since its inception. In fact, one of the first purpose-specific men’s wristwatches ever made was for a pilot friend of Louis Cartier back in 1904 (the iconic Santos watch). In the decades after, watchmakers built on that original design to make timekeeping easy for pilots taking off into the wild blue yonder, most notably with the addition of a chronograph. Back in the 1930s, the Swiss company Breitling made onboard chronographs for planes in the Royal Air Force so pilots could determine their speed, distance traveled, and fuel consumption. In the 1940s, they decided to put their chronograph on a wristwatch — creating the Breitling Chronomat, as well as the mold for future aviator watches.

The Rolex Daytona was engineered in 1963 as a perfect timing tool of professional race car drivers. It is built with a highly accurate and reliable chronograph and tachymeter scale which can be used by racers to precisely measure their speed of up to 400 kilometer per hour. This popular and admirable watch is truly legendary in the motor sports world. If you value luxury, speed and performance, then the Rolex Daytona is perfectly right for you.
