Blue is arguably the most neutral of the primary colors. With its wide range of shades, it has the ability to be both understated and not-boring.
We’ve rounded up our seven favorite watches with a blue face, all at different price points, from affordable to luxurious!
While a strong blue can add a pop of color on your wrist, a dark blue or navy dial can be as formal and professional as a black timepiece. Let’s get to the watches!
These Are Our 7 Picks for Blue Face Watches
We have quite a few favorites here, but let’s go over them one by one. Here they are, in ascending order of price.
- Seiko 5 SNK807
- Swatch Sistem51
- Seiko Presage SRPE43J1
- Tissot Seastar
- Longines HydroConquest
- TAG Heuer Aquaracer
- Omega Seamaster 300 Pro
A sub-100 fan-favorite, the Seiko 5 SNK807 is the fun and modern colorway in the military-inspired SNK line. It’s definitely more style-forward than the traditional green or black versions! It runs on the in-house 7S26 workhorse, the brand’s legacy caliber that you can fully watch via the exhibition caseback.
The Sistem51 combines Swatch’s playful and collectible approach to color with Swiss sophistication. The silky blue sunburst dial is adorned with flawless applications, and matches the denim blue leather strap, for an overall sleek and contemporary style. The watch’s namesake comes from the fact that it’s made of 51 parts, which include a 90-hour Swiss automatic movement.
This Seiko Presage is all about the details: There’s alternating Arabic and baton indices, a contoured date window, and exquisite silver-toned dauphine hands to name a few. The star of the show though is its unique dial. The pressed guilloche pattern seems to kaleidoscope, while the darker edges gradate from the center creating visual intrigue that’s still refined and versatile.
If you’re interested in the look and feel of a luxury dive watch, but would rather not drop 8k for a Submariner or even 2k for a microbrand piece, look no further than the Tissot Seastar. It boasts all of the dive necessities, from the crisp bezel and the fine stainless steel construction to the 300 meters of water resistance and Swiss automatic movement. Plus, that lustrous royal blue dial gives it a high-end and stately vibe.
The Longines HydroConquest definitely wins the legibility award, as its generously-sized 6, 9, and 12 markers make this distinct timepiece look like a cross between a pilot and a dive watch. It’s bold and sophisticated on the outside, and impressively functional on the inside. The L888 movement is an automatic with a whopping 72 hours of power.
Handsome and sporty, the dodecagonal case of the Aquaracer matches the hard edges and polygonic features throughout this robust dive watch. The adventurous look is accompanied by a crisp unidirectional bezel, beautiful lume, and TAG Heuer’s Calibre 5, which is based on a reliable Swiss automatic by Sellita.
A culturally important watch, it was this version of the Seamaster 300 (at least this specific design!), that shifted the Bond watches from Rolex to Omega. Present-day watch fans would definitely call it “the other Bond watch.” That aside, the wave blue pattern is iconic and distinct, especially behind the part skeleton hands. Since this is Omega, it runs on a COSC-certified automatic, which is co-axial meaning it gets more accurate over time.
