A luxury watch has long been the ultimate fashion accessory symbolizing excellence, sophistication, and status. It is much more than just a timepiece – it is something that can be passed down through generations, without losing its elegance and value. Why is it so? The fact is that a luxury watch is all about a perfect combination of precision engineering and exclusive design. Moreover, while a high-quality inner mechanism is always the most important part of the watch, its overall look is also incredibly essential. From the shape of the case to the combination of colors, every little detail matters. It is no wonder that the world’s leading manufacturers spend years, trying to create high-end watches that will leave a trace in the history of fine watchmaking.
At 300watches, we are proud to offer an impressive collection of new and pre-owned designer watches, many of which can be rightfully called icons. This applies not only to mechanical masterpieces equipped with tourbillons, minute repeaters, and perpetual calendars, but also to models with a timeless design. So what are the most iconic luxury watch color solutions that have been on trend for decades?
A white dial with two or three black sub-dials, known as the “Panda” dial, is a true icon in the world of fine watchmaking, largely due to the legendary Rolex Cosmograph Daytona “Paul Newman” model released in the mid-20th century. However, this simple yet eye-catching design of the dial is incorporated not only by Rolex. You can find such chronographs in the collections of Breitling, Girard-Perregaux, Hamilton, Omega, and some other renowned brands. Moreover, the “Panda” dial looks great with both stainless steel and 18k solid gold watches, allowing everyone to choose an ideal model within his or her budget.
The first all-black luxury watch was created by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche in 1972 when this talented designer left the automotive industry and established his own brand. Since then, black luxury watches have been extremely popular with both men and women who prefer stylish yet timeless designs. Made of PVD stainless steel, ceramic, carbon fiber, and even blackened platinum to meet the demands of the most prestigious clientele, such timepieces can be found today in the collections of Chanel, Hublot, Romain Jerome, Grieb & Benzinger, Audemars Piguet, and a whole range of other companies.
The iconic “Pepsi” bezel appeared in 1954 when Rolex designed its first GMT luxury watch at the request of Pan-Am Airways. Intended to show the daytime (red color) and night (blue color) in a simple and understandable way, this beautiful design solution of the rotating second time zone bezel soon became popular with other brands too. For example, if you cannot afford the original Rolex GMT Master II in white gold, you can always look for more affordable options in the collections of TAG Heuer, Seiko, and other brands.
