Watches Go Green at Watches and Wonders 2024

These timepieces are sure to fashion a similar shade of envy.

Tudor Black Bay 58 18K.

There is a green movement at Watches and Wonders—a colour statement of green-hued wristwatches. While the colour didn’t dominate the narrative of the fair, it is a strong favourite and these handsome green models are watches you want to get behind.



Vacheron Constantin Patrimony

Vacheron Constantin celebrates 20 years of its Patrimony collection with three new models that combine a retro style with modern horology. Two 39-millimetre models, one in white gold and the other in rose gold, along with a more complicated 42.5-millimetre model with a retrograde date display and moonphase in a white gold case, feature manual-winding movements, slender gold markers, and convex sunray dials that instantly say old school and oh so chic.





Tudor Black Bay 58 18K

There is a new-for-2024 Tudor Black Bay 58 18K, and this one is all gold: bracelet links, case, bezel, and crown. Usually, all gold anything screams “look at me,” but gold done the Tudor way means brushed or blasted for a signature matte finish that is distinctly posh. The 39-millimetre Black Bay 58 18K with a yellow gold bracelet complete with a T-fit clasp has an open caseback with sapphire crystal displaying the manufacture calibre MT5400 with 70-hour power reserve. The dial and bezel in matching green make for a winning combination with the gold.





Chopard L.U.C Forest Green

The new Chopard L.U.C XPS Forest Green is a handsome model that stands out with its captivating green dial and Lucent Steel case. The L.U.C collection is notable for its in-house calibres made at Chopard’s Swiss workshop in Fleurier. The new model features Chopard’s calibre 96.12-L, a Poinçon de Genchronometer grade movement, and a Côtes de Genève motif finish. The L.U.C XPS Forest Green is paired with a brown leather strap featuring ecru stitching.





Cartier Santos-Dumont

The tale of the Santos de Cartier is a story told and retold: In 1904, Louis Cartier created a wristwatch for his aviator friend Alberto Santos-Dumont who needed a timepiece that he could look at without taking his hands off the controls while flying. Enter the Santos de Cartier, with its square case and a bezel secured by visible screws, which has become a grail watch. The watch has had many variations over the century, and now for Watches and Wonders 2024, a platinum-cased Santos de Cartier Dual with olive-green lacquer on the bezel, plus a matching green sunray dial with applied Arabic indices, sword hands, and a green alligator leather strap with a platinum buckle. This model is limited to 200 pieces.





Vacheron Constantin Overseas

The green-dial Overseas watches from Vacheron Constantin has been a talking piece since it was released earlier this week—a vibrant new departure for the Overseas collection. The sport-chic suite of four references—a 42.5-millimetre chronograph, a 41-millimetre dual time, a 41-millimetre self-winding date model, and a 35-millimetre with a diamond-set bezel are all in rose gold with a satin-brushed sunburst pattern from the dial’s centre. All of the watches, like their predecessors, come with easy-change straps, including the rose-gold bracelet, plus calf leather and rubber.
