Time to Go Green: Our Favourite Green Dial Watches of 2020

Green is so much more than a colour. Thanks to its abundance in the natural world, this particular pigment has become a byword for all things ecologically minded, sustainable and altogether planet-loving. The fact that it’s been wholeheartedly embraced as a watch colour of late can be no mere coincidence. Either way, we’re not complaining: it’s a gorgeous and previously underrepresented hue that whispers pure class. It’s also, rather fittingly, the colour of pure envy.
