Best Blue Dial Watches In 2020
Watches with blue dials seem to hit all the right notes. They're stylish, super wearable and have the beautiful duality of being able to be worn with a suit in the office, out for after-work drinks and casually on the weekend. Whether it's a deep ocean blue, an aristocratic navy blue, a bright blue or even a cool icy blue, watches that have blue dials are a crowd favourite. And in my opinion, the best watch dials are always blue. So, take your pick from these blue dial watches that you can wear at work and at play available now from our affiliated partners at Goldsmiths. Enjoy!
Oh, and with every purchase you'll get a free watch winder too.
Part of Breitling's revamped and refreshed collections, the Breitling Chronomat features a gorgeous deep blue dial that actually changes shades depending on the light. The blue dial is surrounded by 42mm of stainless steel and sits on a distinctive and ultra cool bullet-style steel bracelet. The touch of red on the chronograph seconds hand adds a bit of contrast to the blue dial, as do the subtle black sub-dial registers.
IWC Portugieser Automatic
A blue dial to the Portugieser is like cinnamon to a donut -- a match made in heaven! The brand new IWC Portugieser Automatic features an expansive sunburst blue dial that is absolutely superb. It's a clean, very sharp watch that you can easily wear with a suit or your favourite pair of jeans. At work or at play, the IWC Portugieser's blue dial is a fitting accessory to add to your outfit. Drool worthy!
Grand Seiko Elegance Snowflake
We did mention icy blue dials, so here is one of the best examples, the Grand Seiko Elegance Snowflake. Grand Seiko has a penchant for producing extraordinary watches with a meticulous eye for detail. But perhaps best of all, and wonderfully apparent with the Elegance Snowflake, is the level of dial execution Grand Seiko exhibits. This icy blue dial is outstanding and expresses the beauty of the snowfields surrounding the Shinshu Watch Studio, the birthplace of the Spring Drive. The Elegance Snowflake is full of character and wonder, with its icy blue dial tying together what is an incredible watch.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra
There is something special about the combination of the colours gold and blue. They just seem to work really well together with the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra being a prime example of how well they work in unison. The Seamaster Aqua Terra features a deep blue sunburst dial with horizontal striping, inspired by the wooden decks of luxury sailboats, along with a warm 18k Sedna gold bezel, crown, hands and hour markers.
Breitling Superocean Heritage 57 Limited Edition II
The Superocean Heritage 57 Limited Edition II is another new release from Breitling. This particular model pays tribute to the original 1957 SuperOcean, drawing inspiration for its pops of colour and deep blue from the laid-back lifestyle of the 1960s. The Superocean Heritage 57 Limited Edition II was released to support frontline heroes working across the globe to tackle Covid-19, with Breitling donating £1,000 per sale of the Superocean Heritage 57 Limited Edition II.
IWC Portugieser Chronograph
Like the Portugieser Automatic, the Portugieser Chronograph features a breathtaking sunburst blue dial that looks absolutely phenomenal. Different shades of blue pop depending on the lighting, and the shimmering blue of the dial is very reminiscent of the ever-changing shades of the ocean. What a delight.
While the Grand Seiko Elegance Snowflake represents the upper echelons of watchmaking, the Seiko Presage is super accessible, ridiculously affordable but still mouth-wateringly beautiful. The icy blue dial is the focal point here, but you can't miss the stunning dial pattern that further accentuates the cool look of the dial. A wonderful, budget-friendly watch that takes the traditional look of a blue dial timepiece to the next level.
The Tissot Gentleman is a handsome piece that looks far more expensive than its price tag suggests. Its blue dial is expansive and is finished with a sunray effect. This shimmering look is further accentuated with the high gleam polish of the thick bezel, the centre links in the bracelet and the opposing components finished with satin brushing. Like the Seiko Presage, the Tissot Gentleman is an amazing bit of kit that is affordable and adds a contemporary twist to the traditional look of a blue dial dress watch.
