Watches with the blue dial/blue strap combo are still one of the hottest style trends in the watch world. Here we take a look at 25 of them, all released within the past few years.

1. Ressence Type 1² “Squared”
The Type 1² “Squared”, which Ressence unveiled at SIHH 2017, is a little bit different than other Ressence watches. For example, there’s its case material: The 41-mm case is made of stainless steel, while other models from the brand usually come in a platinum case. The shape of the watch is also different from other models — cushion-shaped instead of round. Typical for the watch is the Ressence moving dial system, powered by a mechanism on top of the automatic ETA 2824-2 movement.
