Salmon dial watches have been a thing for a while, but this passed year has marked many new entrants into the category. Watchmakers around the world are jumping on this trend and introducing stunning designs that would happily adorn any wrist. But salmon dials have been around for some time, so there is a large back catalogue of desirable watches out there too. Here are 15 of our favourites.

Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph 5270P

A classic from the famed Geneva watchmaker, this time piece combines several functions beautifully in a salmon-hued dial.


Montblanc Heritage Automatic Ref. 119944

This watch goes in the complete opposite direction, designed solely to tell the time. Its simple design really lets the dial’s colour shine through.


Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin – Salmon Dial

For those who like their salmon less pink, this is another simple design described as having a ‘salmon-gold’ tone.


Nomos Glashutte Tangente Red Dot 2018

A Bauhaus-inspired design, this watch from Nomos Glashutte unsurprisingly sold out within two days of its release in 2018.


Rolex Day-Date 36 Ref. 118238

This is another less pink design, but the Rolex carries the motif through to the strap giving it a sophisticated look.


Piaget Upstream

The style of the hands and overall look of this beautiful watch evokes a mid-century style that is rightfully being celebrated once again.


Patek Philippe Reference 5450 Annual Calendar

The second Patek Philippe on our list, this one is considerably more understated but just as cool with its salmon complementing the chrome finish.


Cartier Tank Cintrée Dual Time Zone

The salmon dial gives this already eccentric watch even more desirability. Recommended for frequent international travellers who can’t do differences between time zones. Sold at Sothebys’ for 12,500 CHF as one of their “Important Watches”.


Montblanc 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter

Choosing the bronze finish with the salmon dial should instantly transport you to the 19th century. A vintage feel should be right at home on the wrists of gentlemen adventurers or explorers.

A. Lange & Sohne Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon

This was Lange’s first foray into salmon watches and they pulled it off brilliantly. The pink gold dial sits beneath a white gold case and it just looks gorgeous.


Glashütte Original PanoMaticLunar

Muted salmon tones can really highlight other unusual design choices and this Glashutte is no different. With an off-centre face, this watch screams character.


Alpina Startimer Pilot Heritage

Opting for more of a gold than pink salmon, this beefy looking watch is great for people after a more muted accessory.


Vario Eclipse SunStone

This champagne handwound dress watch watch leans even more into its understated elegance. But its durable too, working just as well at a fancy dinner or at work.


Chronoswiss Imperator

Coming from just before the recent craze for salmon watches, the Imperator is inspired by the Paris Metro, making it a beautiful watch to wear.


Breguet Type XX Transatlantique

The last entry on our list proves that there are many amazing salmon watches out there as well as masculine watches being able to carry off salmon dials.
