Green isn’t just a trendy watch color to have these days, it’s also the color of the coming holiday season.
Green has been a popular color of choice for watches over the last few years. But as we head toward the holidays, it’s not just a trendy color you might want to add to your collection, it’s also the color of the season.
As this year comes to a close, Omega is proposing a couple of green watches to celebrate with. It’s a time to be thankful for the year that was, but also a time to look forward to the year that will be. And what better way to mark this time than with a couple of icons?
Speedmaster ’57 ref. 3188.8.131.52.10.001
This being the 65th anniversary of the Speedmaster, it seems fitting to cap the year with the icon. The Speedmaster ’57 hews close to the original 1957 design. It sports a case that has classic proportions and a manual-wind chronometer movement that’s derived from the one used in the first releases.
Design-wise, it’s got a vintage charm without being too heavy handed, and is made out of thoroughly modern materials. Signature 1957 details include the brushed metallic bezel with its “Dot Over Ninety,” as well as the emblematic broad arrow hands.
Constellation ref. 184.108.40.206.60.001
Originally designed in 1952, the Constellation has lost none of the charm over the past 70 years. It’s an iconic timepiece that has seen many iterations over the years, including ones designed by legendary watchmaker Gerald Genta. And the basic design cues remain present in this 28mm model, with the signature polished claws on the sides of the case.
This particular model—with a dial in Matcha Green—is part of a collection that introduces vibrant colors to the Constellation range. Aside from the dial, the shade of green matches the color of the Roman numerals on the bezel. The numerals also line up with the 12 hour markers, which are set with diamonds.
With the incoming holiday season, now might be a good time to start planning how to cap it off. These two would make great gifts to end the year with, though nothing’s stopping you from just picking one up and adding it to the watch winder.
