You’re not quite ready to commit fully to that green hue just yet. We feel you. Maybe because everyone in your clique is feeling the same way about this colour scheme right this moment (hey, we’re writing this article which means it’s probably true). But don’t rule out the colour just because all of your best mates, extended family, and favourite TikTok dancer have it planted on their wrist. What you need to do is to score one that will get the entire dinner table debating about yours in similar fashion as that 2015 viral pic of a black and blue or white and gold lace dress (we know it’s black and blue). Your only choice is this Pioneer Tourbillon Mega Cool by H. Moser & Cie that has brought back the fan favourite blue lagoon fumé dial that has been making the rounds sparingly in its catalogue. A mix between blue and green, it discreetly sits on the fence between two of the most in-demand colours in watchmaking in the last decade. Thanks to H. Moser & Cie’s obsessive compulsive behaviour about squeaky-clean looking dials, there’s no need for squinting here to get a close up of the colour and finishing on the 42.8mm real estate. Sans for a welcome distraction in the flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock, the dial work’s tidy AF which encourages owners to carry out regular appreciation sessions of the sunray pattern’s magnificence via the gorgeous domed sapphire crystal. Stare hard enough and you might even notice that H. Moser & Cie has planted an Easter egg on the dial: its name in transparent lacquer.
