Thread: Blue/Green Watches

  1. #1

    Blue/Green Watches

    Blue and green are the two colors that I generally gravitate to; they are my “favorite” colors. I own a watch with a green dial and a watch with a blue bezel. However, offhand I can’t think of any watches that incorporate both. Do they exist? Show me what you’ve got.

    Seiko to the rescue (as usual).....SSC239P1



    There's also that new Rolex. Not technically green, but it shows on the regular GV. I presume it's the same deal here.

    I had that Milgauss and the colours flop between blue, green and almost black depending in the light and angle. Pretty cool actually.

    Not a common combination, since blue and green clash. Not a very attractive combination to the eye.

    They're not complimentary colors by definition, but I find them complimentary.

    I think that in design they're called symmetrically complimentary colors. I'll Google it.

    While I'm at it, here's another image of the Milgauss, which really shows the color combo.

    The concept is split complimentary colors. This diagram indicates the three-way split along the color wheel.



    Rotating the triangular key clockwise or counter clockwise allows you to find appropriate combinations. So blue, green, and orange appear as split complimentary colors.

    Anyway, I think your point is that it's ultimately subjective. And I hear you. I've never understood this brown and ice-blue combo. I find it unattractive and a very odd choice. But I'm sure Rolex gave the platinum Daytona some thought before releasing it.
