Men’s Green Dial Watches 2021: 15 of the Best

Men’s Green Dial Watches have an enduring appeal. The colour of lush grass and leafy trees, green is a calming colour. Also, no shade says understated and refined as well as the colour of vintage British racing cars. The resurgence in popularity of Men’s Green Dial Watches has grown steadily over the last few years. What began as the odd press-worthy model offered by each brand, has seen a revival of green dials in mainstream watch collections. Sometimes sporty, often retro – never dull: Here is our edit of the 15 best Men’s Green Dial Watches to suit every budget.

Firstly, the round case version 19515/16NB is 38.7mm in diameter and 5.95mm thick so it is slim and fits comfortably on the wrist. The green sunray dial is graded so it is darker at the edges which creates a sense of depth. Furthermore, simple applied hour indexes complement the straight hour and minute hands. Additionally, a simple arabic numeral at 12 provides a focal detail.

Secondly, the cushion-shaped version 16905/16B offers a more retro look. Although similar in terms it style, the main difference is that it does not have a date indicator.

Finally, both watches are fitted with a fine Milanese bracelet to add to their timeless charm. Easy to adjust, the clasp slides along the bracelet until you have found the perfect fit. Priced at £265 and £315 respectively, the Michel Herbelin City Watch is a subtle fashion-forward take on the classic men’s timepiece.

Best Classic Watches Under £500

From the popular Cocktail Time collection, Seiko Presage offer two eye-catching Classic Men’s Green Dial Watches. Inspired by Japanese cocktail culture, each watch in the series takes its name from a particular cocktail.

Mojito Cocktail Time model SRPE45J1

Launched in late 2020, the Matcha Cocktail Time Watch model SRPF41J1 is a Limited Edition of 7,000 pieces. In the same earthy shade of green as a “Matcha” cocktail, the texture of the dial is designed to echo the Kyoto Japanese Matcha traditional tea ingredients. This gives the dial a three-dimensional feel. Additionally, the typography on vintage liquor bottles inspires the applied steel hour indexes and arabic numerals. Also, the second hand which is shaped like a cocktail stirrer is a lovely, subtle detail. Finally, a dark green calf leather strap provides the finishing touch. Price: £420.

The Mojito Cocktail Time Watch model SRPE45J1 is priced at £400. The dial on this version is in a darker shade of green and has a pressed pattern dial reminiscent of cut-crystal glasses.

Both Seiko Presage models have automatic 4R35 movements with a 41-hour power reserve. Similarly, both have exhibition casebacks so that it is possible to view the movements in action.

Best Classic Watch Under £700

Priced at £675, the Michel Herbelin Inspiration 1947 Watch model 1647/AP16BR is an example of outstanding craftsmanship and elegant form. Michel Herbelin founded his eponymous watch company in 1947 and this watch is based on one of Michel’s own designs from the 1950’s. Updated in terms of specification, this beautifully made, modern watch retains a retro feel.

Firstly, the elegant polished stainless-steel case is 40mm wide. Secondly, the striking dial is in a deep, racing green colour and set with steel hour indexes. These are pointed in shape and give the watch a vintage look. A date indicator at 6 o’clock is a useful feature and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protects the dial. The old-school look carries through to the crown which is fluted and set with a blue cabochon stone. Finally, the strap is in brown leather and is deliberately plain with stitched sides and a stainless-steel pin buckle. Equipped with a Swiss Sellita automatic movement, this timepiece is perfect for the understated, well-dressed man.

Inspired by a popular Seiko model from the 1970’s, the Turtle has a large cushion shaped case reminiscent of the shape of a turtle’s shell.

Water resistant to 200 m/660 ft the Seiko Prospex King Turtle Watch has all the attributes you would expect from a professional Diver’s watch.

The newly restyled green dial really stands out with a block textured pattern and high-visibility hour markers and hands coated in Lumibrite. A legible minute track is also at the extreme edge of the dial. Surrounding the dial, there is a black ceramic uni-directional turning bezel.

Best Diver Watch Under £1,000

Seiko Prospex King Turtle men's divers watch with stainless steel case and green silicone strap model SRPE05K1Launched in late 2020, the new Seiko Prospex “Willard” Automatic Divers Watch SRPE05K1 is a recreation of the famous 1970 Turtle Diver’s Watch: the Seiko 6105. Nicknamed the “Willard”, it was the model worn by Martin Sheen for his portrayal of Captain Willard in Apocalypse Now. Consequently, the watch became popular amongst American troops and those needing an exceptionally strong timepiece. Making a second return appearance (the first time was in the form of the SLA033), this is a reinterpretation of the original using modern technology and materials.

With a 42.7mm case diameter, the modern “Willard” is a comfortable size. Additionally, the unique location of the crown at 4 o’clock and the protection of the crown afforded by an extension of the case remain unique features of this watch. Furthermore, the “Willard” has a khaki green dial with high visibility hour markers and hands. Similarly, the uni-directional elapsed time bezel is also in the same khaki green. Additionally, a curved sapphire crystal protects the dial and an anti-reflective coating on the inner surface aids visibility. Finally, a black silicone strap with three-fold clasp secures the watch to the wrist.

Priced at £1,000 on the nail, the “Willard” is equipped with an automatic 6R35 calibre movement and is accurate to +25 to -15 seconds per day. Also, it has a fantastic 70-hour power reserve and is water resistant to 200m.

RACING Men’s Green Dial Watches

Origins of British Racing Green

If you’ve ever wondered why British racing cars are famously green, there is in fact an interesting connection to Ireland!

In the early 20th century, races were between countries rather than individuals. Media tycoon James Gordon Bennett Jr. organised one such race. Each country could enter three cars each and the winning country hosted the event the following year. In 1902, the British won the race for the first time in a Napier. Consequently, we were due to host the race the following year. However, there was a considerable snag: at the time the speed limit on British roads was only 12 mph.

The organisers of the race were instead welcomed by Ireland (where no such laws existed) and consequently as a mark of respect for their Irish hosts, all three British cars were painted shamrock (Irish) green. It was this shamrock green that paved the way for what we now know as British racing green. Read more here. Therefore, what better colour than green to connect Racing Watches to their historical roots?

Best Men’s Green Dial Racing Watch Under £700

The new Citizen Promaster Bullhead Racing Chronograph AV0076-00X pays homage to a retro 1973 Citizen Bullhead model. With its crown and pushers on the top of the case, the watch resembles the head of a bull with horns. This style first started to appear in the 60’s and 70’s and gives this newly modernized version a unique and on trend look. Furthermore, it is a Limited Edition of 1,973 pieces to reflect the year the original watch was released.

Firstly, with a hand assembled movement, the Citizen Promaster Bullhead Racing Chronograph features a 1/5 second flyback chronograph and alarm. Instantaneous flyback means that the second-hand flies back to zero and instantly starts counting again when the flyback button is pressed. Secondly, the watch also features a tachymeter, power reserve indicator and date. Additionally, the combination of green on the dial with the black and red of the chrono sub dials and hands adds to the retro look of the watch. Furthermore, simple luminous hour, minute hands and hour markers ensure that the dial is legible at all times.

With great attention to detail, the way the leather strap fits around the case is quite unique to this model. In a nod to its 70’s predecessor, the strap appears almost moulded around the case with even the pushers and crown set into it. In black perforated leather to increase air flow, it is green on the underside and has green contrast stitching. Finally, a stainless-steel folding buckle with push button release ensures the security of the watch. Presented in a special green Limited Edition box, it is priced at £695.

Frederique Constant Vintage Rally Healey limited edition men's watch with stainnless steel case and green dial and leather strap model FC397HGR5B6

With a sleek 42mm case in polished stainless steel, the dial has enough space for maximum readability. In classic green, the chronograph counters are a contrast in white. Additionally, the applied indexes are coated with a luminous material for improved legibility. Moreover, the second and counter hands are bright red which gives a bold splash of colour to the dial. The green leather strap has perforations to increase air flow to the wrist whilst racing. This design cue is taken from vintage racing watches and driving gloves. In addition, the red contrast stitching also complements the red hands. Finally, a convex sapphire crystal protects the dial.

Equipped with a 25 jewelled automatic FC-397 chronograph movement, the Frederique Constant Vintage Rally Healey has a power reserve of 46 hours. A see-through caseback also ensures that the movement can be appreciated by the wearer. Presented in a beautiful box, it even comes complete with a model of the Vintage Rally Healey that inspired it.
