The elegance of blue in a variety of hues adds a brilliant depth on which to set other details. Blue faces at once appeal as both dignified and artistic, adding an element of intrigue to each piece.
  • 4.… and Greens! An emerging trend for green dials paired with leather and gold bands provides a handsome and colourful alternative to blue. While a playful foray into color, green evokes a sense of nature and also pairs well with neutral tones, making it more dignified than one might expect.
  • 5.Bigger isn’t always Better – After years of bigger and bolder pieces, a trend towards narrower dimensions has been developing in more recent years, averaging 39 and 42 millimeters for men’s designs. Even Panerai, a pioneer in large instruments surprised by presenting models in 38 millimeter cases for the first time.
