One of the most iconic Rolex dials of all time is the Royal Blue, also known as Blue Sunburst. The Royal Blue dial is cherished for its saturated, deep hue in metallic sunburst finish.
However, Rolex has today reserved this classic Royal Blue dial for its professional sports watch – the modern Rolex Submariner Reference 126613LB.
This dial style was often referred to as “Blue Sunburst” on older Submariner blue timepieces. However, the “Blue Sunburst” colour has a little bit darker tome compared to the contemporary “Royal Blue” edition.
Rolex designed the Deepsea Sea-Dweller dive watch for paying tribute to the historic solo dive of James Cameron in the Mariana Trench. To reminiscent his dive, the brand equipped the timepiece with an exclusive D-Blue dial.
The dial flaunts two-colour gradient, fading from top to bottom. It changes from a vibrant blue to bottom black, indicating how the light fades and the water gets darken as one dives deeper below the ocean surface.
It is exclusively the Rolex Milgauss Reference 16400GV that features the “Z-Blue” dial. However, the watchmaker refers to the colour as “electric blue”, acknowledging the Rolex’s symbolic lightning bolt-shaped seconds hand.
The “Z-blue” colour flaunts a silvery, metallic-blue finish. What makes this dial colour more appealing is its unique green crystal fitted over the dial. It produces a brilliant teal effect in different lighting conditions.
It is undoubtedly an exclusive and super cool dial colour from Rolex. The brand uses the “Ice Blue” dial shade in platinum watches. The radiant shine of platinum magnifies the glow of the light, powdery colour on the dial.
Rolex watches sporting the light and clam “Ice Blue” dials include the popular Daytona Reference 116506 with chocolate bezel and the Lady Datejust Reference 279166.
With the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual collection of 2020, the modern Turquoise dial made its debut. The vibrant dial colour is similar to the gemstone colour.
The hue is bold, saturated, but not overbearing. Rolex has equipped its new stainless steel Oyster Perpetual references with this Turquoise blue dial.
