The 6 Best Green Dial Watches For Men

#1 Rolex Day-Date Platinum

Rolex Day-Date 40 Green Dial Platinum Men's Watch M228206-0027 M228206-0027

Few things signify luxury or wealth as much as a Rolex. Across the world, Rolex has become the go-to brand for luxury timepieces for men and women.

And what’s great about Rolex is that they’ve actually contributed a lot when it comes to the craft of fine watchmaking.

They’ve been around since 1905, and in that time, they’ve given the world the first waterproof watch (Oyster) as well as the first automatic watch to indicate the date (Datejust).

When it comes to green dials, it’s hard to deny the beauty of their Day-Date Platinum.

With a both a platinum case and band, this Day-Date not only looks great, but is quite durable. The precious metal is pricey, but it’s also resistant to corrosion and quite dense.

Besides the elegant green dial, this Rolex also comes with an automatic movement (Calibre 3255) with a 70 hr power reserve and a sapphire crystal.

As a Day-Date, it displays both the day of the week at 12 o’clock as well as the day of the month at 3 o’clock.

If you’ve got the budget and are looking for the finest green dial watch around, this Rolex masterpiece is it.


#2 Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph

Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Green Dial Green Leather Strap Men's Watch 521.NX.8970.LR 521.NX.8970.LR

Hublot is a very young company compared to the old school Swiss brands we’re used to hearing about. This brand started in 1980 when Italian Carlo Crocco stepped away from his father’s company to set out on his own watchmaking path.

He raised a few million bucks, built a factory in Switzerland, and the rest is history.

Hublot timepieces have become incredibly popular because they fit somewhere between modern sporty and classic high-end luxury.

I think their Green Dial Classic Fusion fits that category perfectly.

The dark green dial works nicely along the bulky titanium case. And if you’re really looking to throw some green on your wrist, you’ll love that this watch comes with a matching green leather band.

Under the hood, there’s an automatic movement (Calibre HUB1143) with a power reserve of 42 hrs.

As the name implies, this watch has a chronograph function. There’s also a date window at 6 o’clock. The case is a little larger at 45 mm, but still very wearable for most men.

Overall, a great looking green watch that’s significantly more affordable than the Titanium Rolex above.

#3 Breitling Aviator 8 Chronograph

Breitling Aviator 8 Chronograph 43 Curtiss Warhawk Green Dial Green Canvas Strap Men's Watch AB01192A1L1X2 AB01192A1L1X2

If you’re looking for a more rugged, military-style watch, Breitling’s Aviator 8 Chronograph is worth considering. Breitling is a very well-known Swiss brand that can trace their roots all the way back to the end of the 19th century.

The brand is probably most famous for their pilot’s watches– which their Aviator 8 lineup is based on (with some modern upgrades of course).

This watch comes with a green dial of course, that is housed inside a stainless steel case that measures 43 mm in diameter. The crystal is sapphire.

Inside, you’ve got an automatic movement (Breitling Calibre 01) with an impressive power reserve of 70 hrs.

This pilot’s watch comes with a chronograph function as well as a date window between 4 and 5 o’clock.Being the military style watch that it is, this Aviator 8 comes with a canvas fabric band that matches the green dial perfectly.

If you’re looking for a rugged, sophisticated watch that can handle whatever you throw at it, the Aviator is a great choice.


#4 Oris Aquis Date Stainless Steel

Oris Aquis Date Green Dial Stainless Steel Men's Watch 01 733 7730 4157-07 8 24 05PEB 01 733 7730 4157-07 8 24 05PEB

Oris is another Swiss brand that’s over 100 years old. A few decades ago, they joined the company that is now known as the SWATCH Group, who also owns other famous brands like Omega, Tissot, and Blancpain to name a few.

Oris offers plenty of quality of watches to choose from and their very well-priced, especially when compared to many other Swiss brands.

Their Aquis Date lineup consists of diver’s watches and they’re very classic- exactly what you probably picture when you think of this type of watch.

What you don’t normally see on a diving watch is a green dial, but that’s what makes this Oris so special.

Other than the spectacular color of the dial, this watch has plenty to be proud of. There’s an automatic movement (Oris Calibre 733) inside with a 38 hr power reserve and a sapphire crystal protecting the face.

The case is stainless steel and 39.5 mm in diameter, making it a great choice for men with smaller wrists.

The stainless steel band matches the case for a sleek look. Being a diving watch, the Oris Aquis Date is water proof to 300 m, so it can go as deep as you can take it.

If you’re looking for a great looking, affordable Swiss timepiece, the Oris Aquis Date is a smart option.


#5 Seiko Prospex “Sumo”

Seiko is easily the biggest name in Japanese watches and they have been since the 1880’s. The brand may be best known for introducing the world to the quartz movement, but their mechanical prowess isn’t to be underestimated.

The Japanese brand continues to sell a ton of quartz and mechanical watches alike and they do a great job of offering great timepieces at very reasonable prices.

Their Prospex “Sumo” is another classic diving watch. As such, it comes with the expected uni-directional bezel that can conveniently be used for timing underwater excursions.

And I like that the bezel matches the green dial.

Technically speaking, this is another automatic watch that comes with a 38 hr power reserve (Seiko makes some very affordable automatic timepieces by the way).

The green dial is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and this watch is waterproof to 300m. The case is 39.5 mm and stainless steel, as is the band.

Besides the uni-directional bezel, there’s a date window at 6 o’clock.

If you’re looking for clean looking green diving watch, Seiko and their Prospex “Sumo” has got ya covered. A very nice looking watch indeed.


#6 Victorinox Swiss Army Maverick Chronograph

Victorinox is the same brand that came up with the Swiss Army knife (which turns out was actually designed to be used by the Swiss Army).

Well, that company also makes cutlery, watches, and a few other products. They’re obviously most well-known for their awesome pocket knives, but their watches are rapidly gaining in popularity.

Probably because they look great and are very affordable.

Anyway, their Maverick Chronograph looks great in green. When paired with the gold/silver dual-toned bracelet, it reminds me a lot of The College of William & Mary.

This watch isn’t quite as technically advanced as the other watches on this list, but it isn’t nearly as expensive either (asking price under $500).

This timepiece comes with a quartz movement, a sapphire crystal, and a stainless steel band.  The case is also stainless steel and measures 43 mm in diameter.

There’s a lot going on in the functions department too- this watch comes with a chronograph, a uni-directional bezel, and a tachymeter. There’s also a date window at 6 o’clock.

All that and this watch is backed by a 3 year warranty.

Overall, I think this Maverick Chronograph is one of the best looking on this list. It definitely has the look of a watch that costs more than it does.

How To Find A High-Quality Watch

The above represent my favorite picks for green dial watches. Although their appearance played a big role in my decision making process, there are a few other factors I like to look at when picking the best options.

I’d like to share some of those so you know how I’m picking the watches I pick. That way, if you don’t see anything you like, you at least have some background info to work with to help you find the right watch for you.


When looking at watch specs, the movement is probably the first thing you’re going to want to consider. The movement refers to how the watch is powered and there are generally 2 varieties to choose from: quartz or mechanical.

Mechanical watches can be manual or automatic, but most mechanical watches these days are automatic (self-winding as you wear them).

Automatic watches are more sought-after because it takes more craftsmanship to build these models- this makes sense, considering the whole thing is powered by the energy stored in a spring as opposed to battery provided electricity.

That said, that doesn’t mean you can’t or shouldn’t purchase a quartz watch.

Quartz watches can still look great, keep great time, and function perfectly. They also have the advantage of not having to be worn every few days to stay wound.

Regardless of what your preferences are, it’s a good idea to check the type of movement any watch you’re considering uses, especially if you know you’re looking for an automatic movement.


The crystal is the window that protects the dial. This window can be made out of 3 different materials and I think it’s important to consider the type of crystal when researching any new watch.

The types of crystals you’ll see include: acrylic (plastic), mineral glass, and sapphire.

Acrylic crystals are the cheapest and easiest to scratch- I don’t recommend purchasing a watch with this type of crystal unless it’s all your budget allows.

Mineral glass crystals are a big step above acrylic crystals and are seen on many budget-friendly watches. These crystals are fairly scratch resistant, but can definitely show damage.

Sapphire crystals are almost scratch proof. In terms of hardiness, artificial sapphire falls right under diamonds, making them very difficult to scratch.

Higher-end timepieces will come with sapphire crystals because this is the best material to use. If your budget allows for it, I recommend always going for a watch with a sapphire crystal.


There are couple of things you’ll want to consider when it comes to the case of the watch. More specifically, the size and material it’s made out of.

When it comes to size, most men’s watches fall somewhere between 38-46 mm.

There are watches that are larger, hitting the 50 mm diameter, but generally speaking, most watches you see will fall within this range.

Keep size in mind, because if you’re a smaller guy with smaller wrists, a larger watch could be uncomfortable to wear. The opposite goes for larger guys- having a small watch might not look great.

When it comes to materials, most watch cases are made out of stainless steel because it’s affordable and very durable. This material looks great and holds up well to everyday wear and tear.

Going with watches that are made out of other materials will likely increase the price.

For example, the Rolex at the top of my list comes with a platinum case (and bracelet). Platinum is a precious metal, meaning this is going to drastically increase the asking price.

You’ll also see cases made out of titanium, ceramic, and other precious metals like gold.

I encourage you to keep case size and material in mind when choosing your watch.


Some brands are recognized for their craftsmanship. There are even Swiss certifications for reaching a certain level of accuracy or quality control.

That said, remember the old saying: you can’t judge a book by its cover.

Watches from well-known Swiss brands will usually come with the performance specs to back it up, but I still think it’s a good idea to look at all the individual specs before buying.

The opposite is true for brands that aren’t as well known- just because a brand isn’t Swiss and doesn’t have 120 years of history behind it, doesn’t mean they can’t provide great watches.

Regardless of brand name, always look at the materials used, the movement, the crystal, and the band.

Keep in mind there are a ton of great watches out there- you just have to know what to look for.
