Coloured dials that get the green light

The biggest trend in men’s watches for 2017 is colour. Check out our selection of vibrant contenders and say goodbye to your monochrome dial.

  • Bulgari’s sportiest watch, the Diagono Scuba, comes in this energising model with an orange dial and matching strap. Water-resistant to 300 metres, this is an ideal watch for men who enjoy water sports (£5,050).
  • Hermès manages to bring a touch of the unexpected to all its watch creations, including this Arceau Très Grand Modèle with a blue lacquered dial. Originally designed in 1978, the Arceau features sloping numerals designed to evoke the galloping stride of a horse and stirrup-like lugs (£4,050).
  • Get the vintage aviator vibe with this Pilot Type 20 Extra Special watch from Zenith, complete with an oversized winding crown and retro numerals, an aged steel case and a burgundy dial and strap (£4,900).
  • Italian designer Giuliano Mazzuoli took inspiration from a pressure gauge to create his iconic Manometro watch. Decked out in beige camouflage, the bezel of this formidable 45mm soldier is made from a composite material with mottled colours and a texture similar to that of a stone (£3,450).
  • Few watchmakers can rival H. Moser’s ability to produce stunning fumé dials. This white gold model, the Venturer Small Seconds XL Purity Cosmic Green, glows with an intense pine-green dial and the classic minimalism that has come to define the brand (€21,900).
  • Chopard Happy Ocean dive watch
