Green Watches are Your Wrist’s Lucky Charms

 
Green Watches are Your Wrist’s Lucky Charms

The unmistakable four-leaf clover has been associated with good luck as far as back as the 16th century. However, the genetically-rare variant was originally carried by the Celts to ward off evil spirts and witchcraft. In today’s context, wristwatches play the same talismanic role. Walk past an acquaintance you don’t know well enough to stop and say hello? Do a quick time check. Stuck in an awkward conversation? “Oh my would you look at the time!” To celebrate the coming St. Patrick’s Day, here are some green-hued timepieces to double as lifesaving mechanical amulets in times of need. 

 

Montblanc finds inspiration in the world of mountain exploration in their everlasting conquest to traverse the four corners of the globe. The Montblanc 1858 Automatic Chronograph sports a quaint bronze case, which encompasses a khaki-green dial marking the watch’s connection to nature. The watch is paired with a matching NATO strap, perfect for your next hike through the woods. 

 

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver plays with funky new colours, with this one clad in khaki. The generously-sized 42mm watch displays its impressive khaki dial adorned with the brand’s trademark “Méga Tapisserie” pattern. Accompanying accents such as a similarly-coloured crown, helium release valve and rubber strap finish the masculine watch, making this beauty the ideal companion for the rugged man.

 

Design meets nature in this collaboration between Rado and Grandi Giardini Italiani, an organisation that promotes the rich heritage of grand Italian gardens. The verdant green gracing the Rado True Thinline Leaf is achieved through a unique dial treatment that echoes the natural world: the watch sports a green mother-of-pearl dial with a leaf structure applied to its underside, which shimmers brilliantly in the light.
