With its connection to both nature and money, green is a color with deep meaning and vast cultural significance. Whether we’re talking about pursuing “greener pastures” or expressing our love of the outdoors by calling ourselves “green thumbs,” the color plays an important function in the English language.
Green is most commonly associated with life and growth. From the beginning of human civilization, people have associated the color with being alive, probably because in the time before technology, the most common color in the natural world was green. It’s the color of the plant world and, as a result, has come to be shorthand for healthy living and organic food.
Perhaps it is because of its close connection to the natural world that people so often turn to green to express the varied aspects of human experience. When Shakespeare first coined the term “green-eyed monster” in his play, Othello, he tapped into an idea that immediately made sense to his audience. There’s something about the color that expresses desire.
In fact, green has come to symbolize both aspects of desire: the healthy pursuit of life and renewal, and the thrilling dangers of greed and jealousy. It’s likely why the color is so prominent in fashion and accessories. It’s a powerful reminder of the duality of our own nature. A green watch, for instance, is frequently a symbol of power and status. It communicates that the wearer is attuned to his own desires.
If you are guided by your desires, consider these impressive green dial watches for men.
