Blue dial watches might not be a traditional colour but that doesn’t mean they should be ignored. After all, who said all watches have to be the same?
Why not look for something a little different with a blue dial watch? Blue is a colour that suits almost every occasion and that’s also true for blue dial watches. These timepieces are as versatile as they are eye-catching and they make a great addition to anyone’s collection.
Best Blue Dial Watches
1. Hublot Classic Fusion King Gold Blue – From £12,000
Let’s kick things off with one of the most eye-catching luxury watches with a blue dial. This Hublot watch comes in several different dial sizes, starting from 33mm up to 45mm.
The case is satin-finished and polished 18K king gold with blue-lined rubber straps. King gold has been developed by Hublot and is a warmer shade than the traditional 5N 18K gold. This timepiece is one for the ages and a benchmark for other blue dial watchmakers to strive for.
2. Montres KF Lady EI8HT – £116,000
Originally produced just for men, Montres has introduced the blue dial women’s watch with the KF Lady EI8HT. This octagon-shaped case offers bespoke gem-setting for those who order this timepiece from Karsten Fraessdorf.
The Lady EI8HT is highly technical and offers a complete choice to the customer, not just gem placement. The case back displays the inner workings of the watch, thanks to the diamond-set skeletonization of the rear.
Perhaps the most mesmerising feature of this elegant blue dial watch is the galaxy face that shimmers as the light catches it.
3. IWC Tribute to Pallweber Edition 150 Years – £20,300
IWC introduced its tribute to Pallweber’s 150th anniversary with something special, this blue dial watch. It’s hard to argue against the Pallweber Edition being one of the best blue face watches thanks to the extraordinary result achieved by designers.
This is a tribute to one of the finest pocket watches ever made. The display is unlike most watches around, made even more special with the blue dial that comes with the steel version. This watch is also available in red gold that comes with a white dial.
4. Franck Muller Vanguard S6 Yachting – £20,000
You may expect many of the best watches with blue dials to be sporty but that’s not really the case. However, one sporty blue-dialled watch that couldn’t be ignored is the Franck Muller Vanguard S6 Yachting.
This skeleton watch was inspired by the Vanguard collection and it features several nautical features throughout. Inspired by the sea, the blue dial features a compass face.
The blue dial extends to the strap and it’s perfectly set off by the 18K rose gold case and hands. While some might argue that this watch doesn’t strictly have a dial, we think it deserves to be included for its bold approach to design.
5. Skagen Ancher Chronograph – £129.00
Not all luxury watches have to cost an arm and a leg, with Danish brand Skagen proving just that with its blue chronograph watch.
This particular watch comes with an espresso eco leather strap and planet-friendly recyclable packaging. There are three chronograph dials and a 40mm ‘Deep Ocean’ dial. For just £129, it’s a great way to add some blue to your watch collection for little cost.
6. Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36 – £4,450
Although known as one of the premium watch brands, Rolex tends to stick to simplicity and what it knows. However, every so often designers at Rolex’s headquarters let their creative sides out.
One such creative design is the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36 that comes in a turquoise blue dial and oyster bracelet.
This distinctive face is an unexpected twist from Rolex but it’s certainly a welcome one. Not only is the Oyster dial turquoise blue but it has a long-lasting blue luminescence that keeps you on time at all times.
7. H. Moser & Cie. Swiss Alp Minute Repeater Tourbillon – £220,000
Blue dial watches tend to stand out from the rest thanks to their colouring but that’s not the only reason. Take this H. Moser & Cie. Swiss Alp Minute Repeater Tourbillon, which stands out for more than just its blue hue.
This luxury watch comes with a rectangular case with a tourbillon movement and a minute repeater. It is a feat of engineering plus it’s beautiful to look at. The mosaic-inspired dial impresses in natural light and, most importantly, it looks amazing on the wrist.
8. Omega Seamaster 300M – £4,450
Where would a blue dial be better suited than a dive watch? Omega’s blue dial dive watch, the Seamaster 300M, is an automatic stainless steel watch that stands out from the competition.
The Seamaster collection has been going strong for Omega since it was introduced in 1993. Since then, Omega has brought new styles and adaptations to its signature dive watch.
This 42mm model comes with skeleton hands and a blue ceramic bezel. The dial is blue brushed steel and its bezel offers a white enamel diving scale for easy reading in the depths.
9. Frederique Constant Manufacture Slimline Moonphase – £2,800
Moonphase watches might not be everyone’s cup of tea but this offering from Frederique Constant is one of the best men’s blue dial watches. It is elegant thanks to its large 42mm case and thanks to its slimline design, the dial feels enormous.
When it comes to modern dress watches, it’s hard to see past such an elegant piece as the Frederique Constant. Especially this blue dial watch and its matching alligator strap.
With an enlarged crown, the slimline moonphase looks like a million dollars but it certainly doesn’t cost that much.
10. Tag Heuer Carrera – £1,550
This elegant ladies blue dial watch from Tag Heuer is best when matched with the quilted leather strap. At 36mm, it is one of the larger ladies’ watch cases but that just adds to its presence on your wrist.
The brushed blue steel dial is accentuated with rose gold hands and hour markers. For ladies seeking chic luxury style, the blue dial Tag Heuer Carrera is a watch for big occasions.
It is both classic and contemporary while offering functionality and fashion thanks to its 100m waterproof rating.
