With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to get a green watch. In honor of the great Irish Saint, we check out 3 stunning and affordable examples from Filippo Loreti.
While it’s still too early for traditional St. Patrick’s Day festivities down at the local pub, there are plenty of alternative ways to channel a little of that shamrock spirit.
Watch lovers especially are spoilt for choice, with green-dial watches becoming incredibly popular in the past couple of years. Luxury watch brands have released a whole range of sophisticated and eye-catching examples that St. Patrick himself would be proud of, and have put green-faced watches on a level with blue as the colorful watch face that everyone is looking for.
Because let’s face it, green watches are classy. When paired with a silver case and bracelet you get a sporty aesthetic that brings to mind the vintage sports cars of yesteryear - think E-type Jaguar or Aston Martin DB5.
When paired with gold, emerald green watches take on an entirely new level of luxury - that timeless style favoured by royalty and the landed gentry. Old money, in other words.
In this article, we’re going to check out three gorgeous green watches by Filippo Loreti. These luxury green watches are beautifully-made, have those magical green/gold and green/silver combinations, and are amazing value for money. Now you can get the green-dial watch of your dreams, just in time for St. Patrick’s day!
Green Watches for St. Patrick’s Day
The reason we’ve chosen three watches because they all capture that timeless style that a beautiful green watch brings, they are interesting in terms of build and design but not overly flashy, and they are all currently on sale so they are an absolute bargain right now.
A real breath of fresh air for watch-lovers everywhere - to have access to all kinds of new models and unique color combinations for our collections without having to break the bank. So if you still haven’t gone green yet, this is your best chance!
Odyssey Two-Tone Green Link 2020 Edition Watch
Let’s start with the Odyssey, a chronograph in the vintage style that is one of Filippo Loreti’s biggest sellers. Set in a silver casing and bracelet with two-tone gold trim, this retro classic is the best of both worlds - active and sporty yet elegant enough to grace any formal event with a debonair style.
With intricate chronograph details bringing sophistication to a complex, attention-grabbing dial, you might be mistaken in thinking that the Odyssey is a delicate dress watch, not designed for the rough-and-tumble of everyday life. This is far from the truth, however, as its tough 316L stainless steel case and sapphire-coated mineral glass exterior make this a durable piece that is just at home in the mountains as it is at a cocktail party. Shaken not stirred, naturally.
Flip this gorgeous green watch around and you’ll find an engraved artwork on the case back depicting a pair of seahorses and a royal crest, a nod to the Odyssey’s signature Riviera style. Other thoughtful details include the model number (each model has a limited run) and engraved details on the crown.
These are the types of luxurious extras that you’d expect to find on a watch costing several times the price of the Odyssey, and when paired with the classic green/gold/silver combination, it’s impossible to find a classier watch at this price.
Okeanos Green Steel Link Watch
The Okeanos is another example of multifunctional excellence - a tough and sporty dive watch that you’d be just as happy wearing at a business event.
The Green Steel Link pairs a clean, minimalist green dial with a subtle silver bracelet, making for a less overtly attention-grabbing option to the Odyssey described above. That doesn’t mean that has cut corners on quality though - far from it.
With an engraved case back featuring the Roman god Oceanus, a nod to its spiritual home deep under the waves, and other subtle details including a trident engraved on the crown, this tasteful, understated model gets a real chance to shine in green.
Okeanos Rose Gold Green Link 2020 Edition Watch
Finally, we have another Okeanos, this time with an unusual but attractive rose gold case and bracelet.
It features the same luxurious details as the Green Steel Link described above, with the addition of a tasteful date display, and really catches the eye with its unique and elegant color combination.
The Okeanos Rose Gold Green Link is another surprisingly rugged and durable piece - don’t let the more formal outward appearance fool you into thinking otherwise!
Designed originally for deep-sea diving adventures, its stainless steel case, sapphire-coated mineral glass, and precise Miyota 2025 movement will stand the test of time, and is backed by Filippo Loreti’s usual 10-year warranty in the rare instance that something should happen.
Any of these stunning green watches are a great choice for celebrating this St. Patrick’s Day and make the perfect addition to any collection.
Green is clearly here to stay as both a color and a style, and with all of these watches and more on sale right now at incredible prices, there’s never a better time to grab yourself a pint of Guinness and a green watch!
