We’ve barely made it through the first month of the year and the luxury watch world has already established what the craze for 2023 will be. Following Patek Philippes’ launch of a sell-out 5711 model with a light blue or ‘Tiffany Blue’ dial, watch connoisseurs everywhere have been trying to find the next best alternative. To help those searching for their own Tiffany Dial watch, we’ve hand-selected some of our personal favourites with centrepieces adorned in shades varying from turquoise, aquamarine and mint green…
Tissot PRX Watch (T1374101109101)
A Tiffany Blue Dial watch that has become ALMOST as popular as the Patek is this Tissot PRX and when you pair them side by side, you can see why. The Tissot PRX watch under reference T1374101109101 offers a similar architecture to the Patek with a 39.5mm tonneau-shaped stainless steel case, a streamline integrated metal bracelet and a gorgeous brushed mint green dial at the centre. The Tissot PRX watch also boasts sapphire crystal glass, a 100 metre water resistant rating and a Swiss quartz movement. It is also significantly cheaper than most of the Tiffany Dial watches out there retailing at only £295 – that’s 176 times less than the Patek.
Gucci 25H Watch (YA163409)
Another watch incredibly close in looks to the Patek and also a fraction of the price is this Gucci 25H watch under reference YA163409. On its launch in 2021, the Gucci 25H collection was one hell of a surprise to everyone as it was the first time we’d truly seen a fashion brand properly master the art of luxury watchmaking. It’s elegant integrated architecture includes a flat, smooth bezel and a five-link bracelet joined together by a case diameter of 38mm. In this case, it isn’t actually the dial that exudes the gorgeous turquoise shade, but instead the sapphire crystal glass that is tinted in ocean blue. There’s also a 30 metre water resistant rating and a quartz movement, all available at a retail price of £1,250.
Doxa Sub 200 Aquamarine Watch (7126.96.36.199)
Yet another Tiffany Blue Dial watch that has taken the internet by storm, and like the Tissot PRX mentioned above is becoming hard to find, the DOXA Sub 200 Aquamarine watch stays on trend with a gorgeous ocean-inspired display. The DOXA 200 is quite easily one of our favourite dive watch reboots of the last few years, beautifully tributing the brand’s history (which we urge you to read more on) with a gorgeous beads-of-rice-bracelet and retro-styled markers and hands on the bold blue dial. The Doxa Sub 200 Aquamarine watch measures to 42mm in diameter and is engineered from stainless steel with a unidirectional rotating bezel, sapphire crystal glass and a 200 metre water resistant rating. We’re also warranted an automatic winding movement with a 38 hour power reserve – something that does not seem reflected in the £990 retail price.
Breitling Superocean III Automatic 44 Watch (A17376211L2A1)
Going up the ladder a bit here in both price and performance, next up in our run down of Tiffany Blue Dial watches that make a better alternative to the Patek Philippe 5711 model is the Breitling Superocean III Automatic 44 watch. This design was launched only last year (we reviewed it in much better detail here if you’re interested), as a tribute to Breitling’s original Slow Motion watch from the 1960’s. There is a wide selection of bold and bright dial colours to choose from but the Breitling Superocean III Automatic 44 watch with the aquamarine dial was always a favourite of ours. The design mimics the historic Slow Motion watch with a statement minutes track, thin ceramic inlay bezel with a metal rehaut, retro hands and markers and a 44mm stainless steel case. This watch retails at £4,000 which is echoed in the in-house automatic winding movement with 42 hour power reserve and 300 metre water resistant rating.
Oris Divers Sixty Five Cotton Candy Bronze Sky Blue Watch (01 733 7771 3155-07 3 19 02BR)
Significantly different in style to the Patek, this Oris Divers Sixty Five Cotton Candy Bronze watch is still a worthy competitor with its own Tiffany Blue dial. The handsome sky blue centrepiece is wrapped up in a 38mm bronze case which will develop its unique patina over time, changing colour and becoming completely bespoke to the wearer. The case presents a closed steel back, a 100 metre water resistant rating and a 60 minute divers bezel. The Oris Divers Sixty Five Cotton Candy Bronze Sky Blue is also powered by an automatic winding movement with a 38 hour power reserve and secures to the wrist by a Tiffany Blue-coloured perlon strap and a bronze pin buckle. This design retails at £1,900.
BALL Engineer III Marvelight Chronometer Watch (NM9026C-S6CJ-IBE)
American watch brand BALL aren’t typically ones to push the boat out very far when it comes to bright dial colours, but for this occasion, they do have a gorgeous light blue dial option. The BALL Engineer III Marvelight Chronometer watch showcases the luxury watchmaker’s prowess with legibility and robustness with the Tiffany dial beautifully adorned with 15 micro gas tubes which glow incredibly bright – brighter than Superluminova – for up to 25 years without any need for recharge. The case measures to 40mm and is crafted from stainless steel with a 100 metre water resistance, screw in crown, sapphire crystal glass and a handsome tapering steel bracelet. As its name suggests, the BALL Engineer III Marvelight Chronometer watch is also powered by a chronometer certified automatic winding movement and retails at £1,930.
Baume et Mercier Riviera Watch (10612)
Another huge competitor to the original Tiffany-coloured Patek Philippe is this Baume et Mercier Riviera watch. In a similar fashion to how the Patek’s dial is horizontally striped, the turquoise blue display of this Baume et Mercier watch is horizontally embossed with a unique wave-like effect for beautiful light play. The Tiffany Blue watch dial is then housed beneath scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass and framed by the Riviera’s iconic dodecagonal bezel secured by four hexagon-shaped screws. The Baume et Mercier Riviera watch retails at £1,640 and delivers a 36mm steel case, matching steel bracelet, 100 metre water resistance and a traditional Swiss made quartz movement.
Bremont Lady K Sky Watch (LADY-K-SK-SS-B)
The final three designs in our run down of best Tiffany Dial watches are women’s models, offering slightly smaller case diameters and plenty of diamond decoration – but they may also suit men with smaller wrists. First up is this dreamy Bremont Lady K Sky watch which takes its name from its lovely sunray brushed dial inspired by the colour of the sky during a British summer. The dial gives way to a range of diamond indexes to match with the row of diamonds set upon the bezel. The stainless steel case sits on the wrist at 34mm and secures by a three-row link bracelet. There’s also sapphire crystal glass, an impressive 100 metre water resistant rating and an automatic winding movement displayed through the case back. The Bremont Lady K Sky watch retails at £5,795.
Breitling Super Chronomat Automatic 38 Iced Blue Watch (A17356531C1A1)
This Breitling Super Chronomat Automatic 38 watch is a sparkly masterpiece, glistening with its sunray brushed Tiffany blue watch dial, lab-grown diamond bezel and unique blue ceramic rider tabs. Measuring to 38mm in diameter, this could easily be a men’s or ladies timepiece for the everyday, offering a stainless steel case, unidirectional rotating bezel, 100 metre water resistant rating and a chronometer certified automatic winding movement. The latter delivers a 38 hour power reserve and classic time-and-date function with Superluminova hands. The Breitling Super Chronomat Automatic 38 Iced Blue watch is a little more on the pricey side due to the mass of gemstones used for decoration with a retail price of £8,550.
IWC Portofino Auto 34 Blue Watch (IW357416)
Last but certainly not least on our list of 10 Tiffany Blue Dial watches is this IWC Portofino Auto 34 watch. With its elegant pastel blue dial, this women’s IWC watch exudes elegance and sophistication, opting for delicate single diamonds dot indices to pair with the baton markers and Roman numerals. At the centre, feuille-shaped hands for the hours and minutes join with a straight seconds hand powered by one of IWC’s automatic winding movements. The 42-hour movement is kept hidden behind a case back to assist in a 30 metre water resistant rating. The IWC Portofino Auto 34 watch completes its 34mm stainless steel case with a muted grey strap and retails at £4,800.
