Thread: What colour for a green dial?

    What colour for a green dial?

    Hi folks, I bought myself a green dialled Omega, the Speedmaster Golf this week (ebay is lethal for me..) and it arrived with the 90's hair puller bracelet and a brown croc strap with deployment. The brown croc is ok but a little bit "sensible"



    I'm wondering what colour and kind of strap would suit it better. I have seen this Hirsch "runner" in black but not much else


    I've done a bit of research and watches with green dials are not all that common. The watch would originally have come with a green leather strap as an alternative to the bracelet but buying a decent green croc strap would be a leap of faith up there with buying one made with snake skin as it sure isn't going to suit anything else.

    Anyone else got a green dial combo?

    Slap it on a green nato and it will look the mutts nuts :wink:

    Nice catch!!! Yes, green dial is quite rare indeed Have not seen an Omega with Green face before...wonder how many they have made w/ Green face???

    I have a Bremont ALT1-C Green face and the green face has really grown on me over time (only if it has GMT function:(

    Anyway, I think a mustard color will look great on it, same as a very dark brown. I will take photo of my green face Bremont with mustard strap and post here soon..... Cheers!

    imo a green strap on a green watch = too much green!

    i would try a black or grey nato/zulu(when i say zulu i mean a zulu
    that is slightly thicker than a nato :wink: ),just my 2c!

    cheers

    A nice tan/tobacco strap with olive stitching could be good.

    I'd never seen on either and when I checked the reference on the card and discovered it was a real model rather than a made up one with a green dial (like some 80's seamasters on ebay) I bought it right away. The ref is 3811.70.26

    As for numbers I am not sure, I think there were 1000 so I wonder how many were actually sold. EDIT - Just looked on the web and apparently there are 300 Personally I love it. I have put it back on the bracelet for the time being and it looks superb. All it needs is the numbers on the bezel repainting, a quick polish and it is as good as new.

    "Gas Gas Bones" do some nice webbing straps for the Speedy.
    I think the 1202 would look real nice on that.

    Quite possibly but I would like to see that on a bright red leather strap just so see what it would look like. I bet it would good great.

    I think if a green strap was used then it would be a bit of green overkill...

    I think 1 out of 6 men can't see green or red anyway (color blind) so no problem right :D

    Had a Seiko green alpinist, looked best on tan or brown leather, or a sand NATO. Didn't look quite right on black leather or black NATO, green NATO looked pretty good.

    Try an olive green camo NATO band, the green will pop.
