A classic blue watch is eternally in fashion. In the lexicon of dazzling timepieces, there’s something about a blue watch that is endlessly alluring.
From aquamarine to cobalt and an inky midnight hue, a blue watch is as much a staple as your favourite denim jeans. Whether you’re after a diving watch for summer adventures, or simply want something beautiful to adorn your wrist, these are the blue-hued timepieces to shop now.
This new capsule collection pays a pastel-hued tribute to the orginal SuperOcean watch, dating back to 1957. It takes elements from the original design: such as the concave ceramic bezel and oversized indexes, but with a refreshed aesthetic. Larger in scale than the previous neat iteration, it really packs a punch in sugary tones, ripe for a summer on the water. The straps are easily interchangable to handily complement your full summer wardrobe too.
If a sleek, small watch is top of your wishlist, may we suggest the Nantucket from Hermes. The blue alligator strap adds a welcome pop of colour to any outfit, whilst the smattering of diamonds – 90 to be precise – adds a luxe energy to the understated dial.
HUBLOT's watches are playful in their creation. Unexpected materials, like rubber and ceramic, are set against diamonds and patented King Gold for an androgynous design. The watch strap is interchangeable, but we are particularly enamoured with this midnight-blue rubber strap.
Monsieur Dior was always fascinated by gardens. Indeed, flora, fauna, and birds have proved to be an eternal source of inspiration for the maison, featuring heavily in creations over the years. In the Grand Bal Parure Tropicale collection, each piece is an ode to nature, taking the appearance of a dazzling tropical bird-of-paradise. This watch face is a vision of gold, diamonds, and coloured gemstones including sapphires, tourmalines, opals, and amethysts. This is the very couture of watchmaking.
With a skeleton dial, this is a watch which commands attention. Rose gold and diamonds give the timepiece a distinctly feminine aesthetic, whilst the cabochon-cut rubellite set crown, proves the devil is very much in the detail.
Who said diving watches can't boast diamonds too? With a ceramic bezel, blue-lacquered dial peppered with eight diamonds, and brushed steel strap, this timepiece is supremely elegant, raising the bar for sporting watches.
Since launching in 1992, La Grand Classique has very much lived up to its namesake. The super slimline watch is perfect for everyday wear, whilst the dazzling blue dial and diamond hour markers add a touch of nocturnal glamour.
The timepiece for the most daring of adrenaline junkies, this watch withstands 300 metres of water pressure, making it the perfect diving companion. Aside from the rather impressive mechanics, the new contemporary design is particularly appealing, thanks to a dome dial and a rubber and titanium strap. The case of each Ulysse Nardin timepiece is individually numbered too, for a special touch.
