Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Travel Time

Six shades of grey: Spotlight on watches with grey dials…

We look at six timepieces, each sporting beautifully crafted grey dials … in various shades.

Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Travel Time

Combining all facets of watchmaking artistry with balanced elegance, the Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Travel Time’s unique Calatrava case (41 mm in diameter) houses a beautiful charcoal-grey dial. With fine gradation to the periphery and slightly granular structure, the Swiss luxury watchmaker says the dial is reminiscent of the cases of old photo cameras. A self-winding movement — the Geneva-based company’s calibre 31-260 PS QA LU FUS 24H — keeps time.

Zenith Chronomaster Revival ‘Poker Chip’

The Chronomaster Revival ‘Poker Chip’ is beautifully designed and contemporary with its poker-chip-inspired dial. Lime-green accents complement the distinct dial’s grey hue. The watch ships with a duo of straps, one in a different shade of the colour of the dial and features full LumiNova. The watch is powered by the Swiss luxury watchmaker’s El Primero 400 calibre. The automatic movement offers a power reserve of 50 hours. Only 200 examples are available.

Hublot Big Bang Essential Grey

The name says it all… As its name would suggest, the Big Bang Essential Grey is essentially finished in grey. Hublot bills the watch as a stunning cocktail. Although not as vibrant as some of its Big Bang stablemates, this Big Bang remains visually striking, “magnifying the unmistakable design of the original model”. The grey dial is fashioned from titanium, as are the case, bezel and hands. Hublot’s column-wheel chronograph movement — the HUB1280 — keeps time, providing a power reserve of 72 hours.

Yellow accents highlight the dial’s colour scheme. Housed within the 43 mm black DLC steel case, a quartz movement keeps time.
