Green is the new Blue

Green is the new Blue

Postby koimaster » May 3rd 2018, 10:27am

Although blue still calls the tune in the watch world for chromatic experi-ments beyond the scope of ever-popular black and white, a new trend to-ward green dials is beginning to become apparent. With green watches, the watch brands also reflect one of the leading hues in the Pantone Color Institute’s “Fashion Color Trend Report” for the spring of 2018. As a glob-ally acknowledged authority on colours, Pantone has welcomed arcadia as a new tone. Here’s a selection of the latest offerings at Baselworld 2018.

Most of 'em are too much of a good thing, with the exception of the Seiko and Certina.
