Perhaps it’s horology’s way of letting us connect with nature. Or someone in the industry sent out a memo that it’s the new blue. Whatever the reason, we’re digging the proliferation of timepieces with deep, rich green-coloured dials that are at once sophisticated and surprising; says you’re fun, but can still, be taken seriously; and, if you ask us, a whole lot fresher than blue.
The newest iteration features a malachite dial that’s bevelled, creating a jewel-like effect.
A tribute to the origins of this watch, which saw the brand experiment with dial colours at a time when this was unheard of, as part of its 90th anniversary this year.
The striated bracelet is inspired by the way Monsieur Dior used to pin fabric swatches onto sheets of paper for his couture collections.
This 33mm model now comes with a new bracelet that features graphic fan-shaped links – a nod to Rome’s Caracalla Baths.
Inspired by the original line the maison had launched in the ’70s as its answer to the “quartz crisis” that, uhm, tanked many a legacy house – smart in more ways than one.
