As one of the three primary colors, blue is fundamental to the color spectrum, and for that reason it has taken on many meanings across cultures. It is the color of both the sky and the sea, which is why blue is often associated with life, healing and nature, as well as religious ideas of gods and spirits. Indeed, like many concepts of the divine, the color blue is all around us.
In psychology, blue is often considered to have a soothing effect. In fact, research has found that blue lighting can help people relax after they have been in a fight or if they’re feeling stressed. It has been proposed that using a blue light in public spaces – like busy train stations – could help keep people calm in situations where anxiety is common.
In fashion, the color blue was historically a sign of wealth and status. These days, the color is more common place, but just as meaningful. After all, who doesn’t have a favorite pair of blue jeans? No wardrobe is complete without at least a couple of pieces in different shades of blue.
That includes blue watches for men. Whether it’s something simple and sleek or a timepiece with a bit more pizzazz, a splash of blue is an excellent way to ensure your watch stands out. Here are some of our personal picks for blue dial watches that any man would look good wearing.
