For fans of the classic allure of a matte black dial and clean tool watch design, a blue alternative might be the first dip into the enticing waters of colorful dials. A deep blue dial works exceedingly well at accentuating polished details on a steel case and can turn a rugged sports watch into an elegant wrist companion when a more formal occasion calls for it. In the world of dive replica watches, the blue depths of the ocean are often echoed in the dial. Who knows?
Yes, this is a very subjective roundup, but for me, these watches feature some of the best deep blue dials of 2023. I think you’ll agree with at least a couple of my picks. Plus, in the spirit of keeping things varied, I’ve included anything and everything from brawny divers to integrated bracelet-chic watches. Will one of these be your stepping stone into the bold world of colorful watches? Read on at your own risk!
Omega Seamaster 300M 60th Anniversary James Bond
In my mind, it’s one of the best in the biz. But the Bond connection is subtle, seen only in the case back animation, which covers the Co-Axial delights. The Swiss Replica Watches only other 007 easter egg is on the bezel. The ceramic bezel is fully lumed, with a glowing green “60” where the triangle would normally be, matching the Super-Luminova of the minute hand. For once, a Bond connection kept nicely understated and suave, just like Mr.Bond himself.
TAG Heuer Carrera Skipper
The TAG Heuer Skipper Replica is a sharp reissue of a colorful retro reference. Vintage hardliners might begrudge the 39mm case as too big, but I get it. The execution of the dramatic lug angles and the round case keeps it close to the original, while 39mm might suit modern tastes better than the old-school 36mm. But here, the dial is the superstar within the wearable 46mm (lug to lug) long case.
The new TAG glass box design features small orange-red lume dots outside each index, matched to the new sword hands’ tips. It creates a proper party on the dial, especially in the presence of the seafoam green 9 o’clock register and iconic tri-color 15-minute regatta counter. Do I mind the 6 o’clock date window?
Even if IWC Fake Watches On The Market also calls it green, my contrarian nature emerges yet again. I would keep it in low-light situations under a dark blue shirt, where its chameleonic tint will err on the side of blue. I have registered some debates on the bracelet and clasp on this sleek new 40mm Ingenieur, but I’d still be happy to wear one. The bold case and broad bezel make for a smaller dial.
This means that it wears more like a 39mm watch. A serrated chequerboard dial plays brilliantly with the light, and thin bevels underline the Luxury Replica Watches bold case’s sides. It’s slim at 10.7mm, and the caliber 32111 is a worthy beating heart, nicely decorated even if hidden behind a closed case back; it also boasts a massive 120-hour reserve.
