Blue dial watches are a must-have for all watch wardrobes, even if they aren't as classic as white or black dialed watches. These timepieces are sleek, sophisticated and sporty in more ways than one, whether they're a deep navy hue or a dazzling royal blue. With their distinct and strong colour, watches with blue dials are quite flexible. They're elegant enough to wear to the office with a suit, but they're also modern and contemporary enough to wear with khakis or trousers on the weekends. Having blue dial watches on your wrist is always a winning look, no matter where you're going.

Here are the Top 5 blue dials that made it to our favourites list this season!

1. Omega Speedmaster ‘57 Calibre 9906

Early in January, Omega debuted the Speedmaster Calibre 321, a tribute to the very first Speedmaster, the Ref CK2915-1, which beat the Calibre 321. The Speedmaster '57, which was first presented in 2013, is now expanding the collection.

There are eight new stainless steel models in this lineup, all of which are powered by OMEGA's Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9906. The Calibre 9906 is thinner thanks to a new manual winding mechanism, resulting in a watch with a smaller profile, 12.99mm to be exact. The watch features a 60-hour power reserve and is officially certified by METAS.

This 40.50 mm model, inspired by the legendary 1957 original, features a stainless steel case and a blue dial with rhodium-plated hour markers and “Broad Arrow” hands - all featuring white Super-LumiNova. There is a date window at 6 o’clock, a small seconds subdial at 9 o’clock, and 12-hour and 60-minute chronograph recorders on the subdial at 3 o’clock. The blue is a deep ocean blue reminding us of the waves.

2. Chopard Alpine Eagle

The new Alpine Eagle timepiece series is a modern reworking of St Moritz, the first watch produced in 1980 by Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, now Chopard's president. It's made of Lucent Steel A223 — a special, ultra-resistant, light-reflecting metal that beats to the beat of a Chronometer-certified movement. The dial is a stunning dark anodized blue with a radiating texture inspired by the iris of an eagle.

Alpine Eagle is a brand dedicated to modern eagles, aspirational guys who excel in their daily lives and whose vision inspires and lifts others. They act on tomorrow's difficulties with foresight and drive, and they are inherently aware of the need for teamwork.

3. Hublot Big Bang Integral Ceramic Indigo Blue

Hublot has pushed the limits of ceramic by boosting its hardness and scratch resistance while maintaining its lightweight, making it a joy to wear thanks to its low thermal conductivity and hypoallergenic properties.

The Big Bang Integral is in its element with this Hublot ceramic, which adds four new monochrome colours to the collection. There are four colorways to choose from, each limited to 250 pieces and representing the elements of WATER, EARTH, and WOOD. Taking you on a round-the-world trip. Indigo blue from Morocco's Majorelle Garden and the streets of Chefchaouen, as well as Rajasthan's Blue City of Jodhpur.

 UNICO V2 manufacture movement

All of this is contained in a 42-mm case, ready to transport you on a non-stop 72-hour voyage, which will be tracked by the UNICO V2 manufacture movement. The HUB1280 calibre is used in this piece, which has a smaller design, new architecture, easier assembly, and improved legibility and functionality. It also has an integrated bracelet with three polished and satin-finished bevelled and chamfered links. These colours and finishes complement the Big Bang Integral Ceramic's unique design to breathtaking effect.

4. Rolex Datejust 31 Oyster Perpetual

An azzurro-blue floral-motif, diamond-set dial, and an oyster bracelet feature this oyster perpetual datejust 31 in oystersteel and white gold.

It has a dial with 24 diamonds set in 18 karat gold settings. The exquisite shape of the 31 mm Oyster case, which is furnished with a fluted bezel, is highlighted by light reflections on the case sides and lugs. The Datejust has traversed eras while maintaining the eternal codes that have made it one of the most recognised and identifiable watches, particularly in its classic variants.

5. Mont Blanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date

The Montblanc 1858 Iced Sea Automatic Date is the brand's first sports diving watch, with a glacier pattern dial that provides the feeling of looking into the depths of a glacier. The main glacier of the Mont-Blanc Massif, the Mer de Glace (Sea of Ice), inspired this blue glacial pattern dial. Its texture was created using gratté-boisé, an almost-forgotten traditional technique.

A unidirectional bi-colour ceramic bezel, an engraved case back, and a tapered interchangeable stainless steel band with precise adjustment for accurate fitting are all included with the clock. The timepiece complies with the ISO 6425 diving watch standard and is waterproof to 300 metres.
