Blue has quietly replaced black as one of the basic colors of the hand surface disk. Among these blues with different shades, what blue belongs to your blue? The blue dial has gradually become a new trend in the use of clock dials in early 2010. It has also opened up another path for the choice of black and white dials in the past. Blue has become a new alternative to black. A variety of different color scales can show shades of blue, and have a richer visual level than black and white. Whether it is matched with dark or light shirts, suits, or outdoor casual wear, it is a more suitable color. The blue used by different brands is actually very different. Even the same brand may match different blues for different series of watches. Different blues give people different feelings and imaginations, and they also have different personalities. We have selected 9 blue-faced models with different names (in alphabetical order), which blue do you belong to?

This rich and deep blue exudes temperament. It is like aristocratic gentleman with rich knowledge and culture and elegant manners. This blue will give people this image related to its fineness close to ultramarine blue (Ultramarinus) with the same saturated depth. Ultramarine is a kind of blue and saturated blue than lapis lazuli. It was not only rare and expensive in the Middle Ages, but only the aristocrats could afford it. It has always been regarded as the color of the royal aristocracy. Impressions are always strongly connected with elegance, nobility, and noble image of the royal family. This ultra-complicated minute repeater watch from Audemars Piguet uses a dark blue very similar to ultramarine blue, which is quite consistent with the complex minute repeater function in terms of status and temperament.

Because the color is lighter, it also looks exceptionally visually. Cool and refreshing, a bit like a friendly and easy-going but somewhat restrained man. This slightly turquoise blue is similar to Cerulean blue, which is mostly used to describe the color of the sky or sea water. It is also a blue pigment often used in the art world, but it is not used on the surface of the hand. Not many, Glashütte originally chose such a clean blue as the face color of the parliamentary excellence series, which was surprisingly refreshing.

I always think that the dial of this IWC Mark XVIII pilot watch is a little blue and dreamy, a bit innocent and a bit mysterious. It is full of blue and dull, similar to the blue sky full of hope but not yet clear after midnight. Among all blues, there is a mineral blue named after a coppery azurite with glass luster, which is similar to this slightly shiny blue plate of IWC.

(Photo: Kyle Kuo) In fact, Panerai has launched several blue disc models with slightly different colors. Among them, the blue of the Luminor Marina watch is more special. The blue of the Luminor Marina watch is darker and transparent like blue. Gloss, compared to the clearer or full-colored blue disks on the market, Panerai blue is unpredictable and elusive, like a strong sportsman with a strong self-characteristic personality. The closest to this blue is Prussian blue. This blue, which was named as the color of naval uniforms in Prussia in the past, is actually darker than the blue of Panerai’s Pam1028, which is closer to the non-reflective state of the disk. The colors rendered. The Blue # 718K white gold case has a diameter of 40 mm and is equipped with a 240 Q ultra-thin self-winding movement with a perpetual calendar function.

The blue used by Patek Philippe is close to the steel cyan called Steel blue in English. This blue is known for its color and luster. It is similar to Patek Philippe’s decoration, which is bright and elegant blue. The face is relatively close, and it looks like a handsome young man with good looks.

The dial of this blue calendar is also from its own enamel dial factory. The wavy pattern with the texture of enamel presents a deep, saturated and slightly shiny dark blue as a whole, much like the changing midnight blue, and only the mysterious and unpredictable midnight blue is suitable to describe this. Only the enamel is burned out. Unique deep blue, if this is an old-fashioned blue, will anyone raise their hands to admit it?
