Shades of gray and blue – predominantly blue – have been the trendy colors in the watch industry since the advent of watches, to say it loosely. Over the years, a new color – green – has been casting a charming spell in the market.
A blue suit, blue denim or a blue watch does not grab so many eyes. These are just so natural from fashion perspective as if this is how they should be. But the moment you wear different colored denim, suit or a watch, you become a talking point.
Just for this attention-grabbing reason green has not been so much of a go to color for watchmakers. The color however makes a realistic reference to military, nature and adventure and is gaining in popularity amid consumers influenced with or attached to either of these segments.
Given the demand lately some manufacturers have introduced green models – emerald-hue dialed wristwatches – which may or may not pair with a green strap. Listed below are the finest three green watches that conjure up a diverse association, have a look.
