HOW THE SALMON DIAL CAME TO BE

Post by koimaster » November 4th 2020, 12:15am

Pink, rose or golden opaline. All of these dial shades can fall under a seemingly catch-all term which has gained something of a cult following of late. Salmon. From elusive vintage Patek Philippe chronographs, to a small handful of Royal Oaks, this unusual colour has long fascinated collectors on account of its scarcity, charm and aesthetic. In more recent times, this interest seems to have reached a new level, with vintage pieces becoming all the more difficult to find and contemporary watches, from large brands and smaller independents alike, integrating this shade into their designs.

There is something instantly appealing about this salmon hue, which seems to speak to collectors in a way few other colours do. After all, there must be a reason why, for such a long time, Patek Philippe held it back for its closest clients or to mark special occasions. With these dials being close to our heart, and that of many others, we thought it worthwhile to find out a bit more about where they came from and how they’ve evolved over time.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
