Blue In the Face: 9 Perfect Blue Watches

By: Ariel Adams|May 19, 2015



Chopard L.U.C. XPS Poincon de Geneve

Understanding that less is more is key to appreciating the design of the Chopard L.U.C XPS collection of dress watches. It is extremely thin, with a micro-rotor automatic movement. With its blue dial, matching strap and platinum case, the L.U.C XPS Poincon de Geneve is a limited edition of just 25 pieces. Less is more indeed.


Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograp

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph is the quintessential modern luxury sports chronograph, with distinct lines and a refined, aggressively masculine style. Now, Audemars Piguet offers it in blue, with a steel case, blue high-grade rubber strap, and black ceramic elements for the crown and pushers for the most modern version of this sporty classic.


Hamilton Jazzmaster Regulator

Hamilton’s long standing Jazzmaster collection adds a little art deco to your office attire. Perhaps the most remarkable of the collection is the Jazzmaster Regulator, which features a face with separate dials for the hours, minutes, and seconds. Slightly less legible than standard hand layouts, the Regulator dial concept was created to know the precise time.


Cartier Rotonde Second Time Zone Day/Night

This model is based on the popular Rotonde (for round) case that is among Cartier’s most appealing, yet conservative offerings. The 18k white gold model features a stunning blue dial with a gentle texture of concentric circles. In addition to the time, the watch includes a day indicator, day/night indicator, and retrograde second time zone hand.


TAG Heuer Monaco

Steve McQueen popularized the Heuer Monaco back in the 1970s. Today the TAG Heuer Monaco is one of the most distinctive watch case designs around, offering a hybrid between cushion and square case. TAG Heuer’s blue version is lovely with a color tone that is remarkably sober for something born of the colorful racing world (especially in the 70s).


Panerai Radiomir 3 Days GMT Oro Rosso

The PAM00598 Radiomir 3 Days GMT Oro Rosso matches a metallic blue dial with an 18k rose gold case and blue alligator strap. It also happens to be a limited edition of 200 pieces. Sitting large with a width of 47mm, the Radiomir’s case is based on the original Panerai watches from the 1930s. It’s uncommon for Panerai to go blue, but they pull it off effortlessly.


Bulgari OCTO

Inspired by the inner arches of the Basilica of Maxentius, the octagonal design was nearly perfect – and perfectly innovative – when it was first released in 2012. Now, with its clean lines and sapphire blue face, this is a perfect example of balancing the future with the past. Available with a steel bracelet or alligator leather strap.



Girard-Perregaux Blue Hour 1966

There’s a reason the 1966 collection is among Swiss maker Girard-Perregaux’s best sellers. The elegant case design makes way to a minimalist dial evocative of an era when futuristic industrial design was about subtlety and simplicity. Today, classics like the 1966 dial endure the Blue Hour, offering a unique take on approachable style. Here the blue dial has been matched to a blue alligator strap.


Baume & Mercier Clifton Moonphases

With retro-chic styling, the Baume & Mercier Clifton Moonphase features a dial that includes a moon phase indicator, as well as an annual calendar with the date, day of the week and month as part of the automatic mechanical movement. With a blue dial and dauphine-style hands, the steel case takes on a more formal personality that calls to mind the 1950s in a very good way.
