12 Pink-Dial and Salmon-Dial Watches from Affordable to Luxury

12 Pink-Dial and Salmon-Dial Watches from Affordable to Luxury

Watches with pink dials used to be fairly rare, and confined almost exclusively to dainty timepieces aimed at jewelry-loving ladies. In recent years, however, pink tones have found their way to a wide variety of timepieces, ranging from dressy and elegant to casual and sporty — many of which have found an avid audience among male enthusiasts as well as female. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we’ve compiled a list of pink-dialed watches (along with several that qualify more as “salmon,” pink’s peach-toned, more muted cousin) in a variety of price ranges from under $1,000 up to $25,000. While many would primarily be regarded as ladies’ watches, the goal here is to spotlight timepieces with unisex appeal: every timepiece here is 34mm or larger, and almost none have a trace of jewelry.

Maurice Lacroix Aikon Tide Pink

Maurice Lacroix Aikon Tide Pink

Price: $750, Case Size: 40mm, Thickness: 11mm, Water Resistance: 100m, Crystal: Sapphire, Movement: Quartz 

Introduced in 2022, Maurice Lacroix’s beach-ready Aikon Tide has a case constructed from a revolutionary composite material that combines ocean-recovered plastic with glass fiber. The resulting substance is twice as hard as standard plastic and five times more resistant, with the added bonus of also having a smaller carbon footprint than regular PET. This model’s pink dial bears the familiar aesthetic hallmarks of the brand’s flagship Aikon sport-luxury collection, including the distinctive “clawed” case, somewhat Royal-Oak-evocative dial, and the smooth integration between the case and the Easy-Change rubber strap. An ocean-inspired, textured motif called “Vague du Jura” enhances the dial.

Nomos Club Campus 38 Deep Pink

Nomos Club Campus Deep Pink

Price: $1,500 - $1,650, Case Size: 36mm/38mm, Crystal: Sapphire, Water Resistance: 100 meters, Movement: Manual-wind Alpha

German watchmaker Nomos spun the entry-level Club Campus collection off from its sport-inspired Club series in 2017; Club Campus watches are  noteworthy for their streamlined, no-nonsense aesthetic and their use of  “California” dials, i.e., using a combo of Arabic numerals, Roman numerals, and plain indexes for the hour markers. Club Campus models offer two sizes (36mm and 38mm) and utilize the brand’s in-house, manually wound Alpha calibers. Aside from their very tempting price proposition, Club Campus watches also offer an array of eye-popping colorways — like Blue Purple, Cream Coral, Electric Green, Future Orange, and the Deep Pink model pictured. Present on almost all Club Campus models, which are mounted on soft velour leather straps, is a bright orange seconds hand in the 6 o’clock subdial.

Oris Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy

Oris Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy

Price: $2,750, Case Size: 38mm, Lug Width: 19mm, Crystal: Sapphire, Water Resistance: 100 meters, Movement: Automatic Oris 733 (Sellita SW 200-1 base)

The vintage-inspired Divers Sixty-Five, based on Oris’ first divers’ watch from the eponymous year of 1965, made a name for itself with its retro tool-watch design, but Oris has since boldly branched out into new, more soft-edged territory with the model in the recently introduced “cotton candy” editions — defined by their pastel-colored dials in cheery hues like “sky blue,” “wild green,” and “lipstick pink.” Sized at 38mm in diameter, dimensions that Oris has described as “intentionally unisex,”, the watches are mounted on matching three-link bracelets — in either bronze, like the first wave of models, or steel, as in the more recent additions to the line. Each model features a relief dive-scale bezel, a domed sapphire crystal, and the 100-meter water resistance characteristic of the parent Divers Sixty-Five series. Ticking inside all the Cotton Candy editionsl is the Sellita-based automatic Caliber 733.

TAG Heuer Carrera Date 36mm

TAG Heuer Carrera Date Pink

Price: $3,200, Case Size: 36mm, Crystal: Sapphire, Water Resistance: 50 meters, Movement: Automatic TAG Heuer Caliber 7

Named for the Carrera Panamerica road race by its creator, founding family scion and former CEO Jack Heuer, the TAG Heuer Carrera made its debut in 1964 and swiftly became a trendsetter in the genre of motorsport-inspired chronograph wristwatches. The Carrera collection, a cornerstone of the modern brand, now includes non-chronograph models in a range of sizes and color iterations, including the three-handed, steel-cased “hot pink” model above, measuring an understated 36mm in diameter and containing the automatic Caliber 7, based on the ubiquitous ETA 2892. The vibrant sunray dial has a date window at 6 o’clock and its graduated pink color is repeated on the flange’s 60-minute scale. The H-shaped steel link bracelet fastens to the wrist with a double-push-button safety clasp.

Breitling Chronomat Automatic 36 South Sea

Breitling Chronomat Automatic 36

Price: $5,100 - $27,500, Case Size: 36mm, Thickness: 10mm, Lug-to-Lug: 43.3mm, Lug Width: 18mm, Water Resistance: 100m, Crystal: Sapphire, Movement: Automatic Breitling Caliber 10 (ETA 2892-A2 base)

Breitling’s Chronomat series traces its key design elements back to 1984, but the model’s roots reach much further back, to the dawn of Breitling’s role as a producer of watches for pilots in World War II. Today, the Chronomat collection has expanded into a variety of sizes and colorways aimed at both men and ladies. In 2020, Breitling launched the first “unisex” Automatic 36 models, outfitted with the ETA-based Breitling Caliber 10 and featuring simple three-handed lacquered dials. The Swiss sport-luxury specialist introduced the Chronomat South Sea capsule collection, which takes its inspiration from “the beauty of tropical land and seascapes,” three years later. The South Sea models have metallic or mother-of-pearl dials in ice blue, green and the pink version pictured above, plus diamond hour indexes, and multicolored gem-set bezels. Each model comes on either a color-coordinated alligator leather strap or Breitling’s signature “Rouleaux” bracelet.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual 34

Rolex Oyster Perpetual 34 Pink

Price: $5,800, Case Size: 34mm, Water Resistance: 100 meters, Crystal: Sapphire, Movement: Automatic Rolex Caliber 2232

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is the essence of Rolex’s sport-luxury simplicity and, in its smaller iterations, perhaps the coveted brand’s most entry-level model. The clean, elegant dials offer an impressive array of color options, like the sunray pink-dialed model featured here, with a 34mm OysterSteel case. The dial’s carnation color is achieved through a sunray brushing finished with a PVD treatment and a light final varnish. Hours are marked by simple applied bar indexes, doubled at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock and treated with Rolex’s proprietary luminous material, called Chromalight, which glows bright blue in the dark. Rolex’s crown emblem indicates 12 o’clock, and the hands are also luminous-treated; the dial’s symmetry is uninterrupted even by a date window. The case is highly corrosion-resistant and waterproof to 100 meters, thanks to its threaded screw-down caseback and the patented Twinlock screw-down crown. The in-house, automatic Caliber 2232 beats inside, amassing an impressive 70-hour power reserve.

Grand Seiko Four Seasons "Shunbun" Ref. SBGA413

Grand Seiko Heritage Spring "Shunbun"

Price: $6,600, Case size: 40mm, Thickness: 12.7mm, Lug to Lug: 47mm, Lug Width: 21mm, Crystal: Sapphire, Water Resistance: 100 meters, Movement: Spring Drive Caliber 9R65

In 2019, Grand Seiko unveiled a series of models in its Heritage collection whose decorative dials pay homage to the Four Seasons. The "Spring" edition, Ref. SBGA413 (aka the “Shunbun” in Japanese), celebrates the Vernal Equinox with its Zaratsu-polished case and pale pink-hued, subtly textured dial with a motif that calls to mind blossoming Sakura, or cherry blossoms scattered on a wind-swept river. The watch contains one of Grand Seiko’s Spring Drive movements, Caliber 9R65, which offers a substantial 72-hour power reserve and a monthly rate accuracy of +/-15 seconds. Further adding interest to the nature-inspired dial layout are the Japanese maker’s emblematic razor-shaped hour and minute hands, an elegantly framed date window at 3 o'clock, and an analog power-reserve display at 8 o'clock.

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Shades

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Shades

Price: $6,600, Case Size:38mm, Thickness: 12.3mm, Lug to Lug: 44.9mm, Lug Width: 19mm, Crystal: Sapphire, Water Resistance: 150 meters, Movement: Automatic Omega Caliber 8800

Starting out as an uncommonly water-resistant gents’ watch in 1948, then evolving into a purpose-built divers’ watch in 1957, the Omega Seamaster has grown into a diverse product family. In the 21st Century it added the Aqua Terra line, a dressy, elegantly understated sibling to the sportier Diver models. Aqua Terra watches eschew the rotating divers’ bezel and other tool-watch accouterments for a more streamlined style, with simple wedge-shaped hour markers inspired by the silhouette of a sailboat, and a triangular hour hand paired with an arrow-tipped minute hand. In 2022, Omega introduced the Aqua Terra Shades collection, sporting a variety of dazzling colorways, including the lacquered pink model showcased here. Its modest 34mm case eschews the familiar Aqua Terra teakwood textured pattern in favor of a PVD sunburst finish. Inside is Omega’s self-winding Caliber 8800, which stores a power reserve of 55 hours.

Zenith Chronomaster Sport Pink

Zenith Chronomaster Sport Pink

Price: $11,500, Case size: 41mm, Crystal: Sapphire, Water Resistance: 100 meters, Movement: Automatic Zenith El Primero Caliber 3600

Zenith partnered with the breast-cancer charity Susan G. Komen to produce this 500-piece limited edition of its popular Chronomaster Sport with a sunburst pink dial with tone-on-tone subdials and an engraved bezel in steel rather than the model’s traditional ceramic. Inside its unisex 41mm case beats an El Primero chronograph caliber that ticks at 36,000 vph, powering a central seconds hand that makes a complete rotation around the dial in a lightning-fast 10 seconds rather than the usual 60 seconds. This enables the wearer to read elapsed times to 1/10-second on the bezel’s scale. The movement is on display behind a sapphire caseback, allowing a view of the large blued column wheel and an openworked rotor with a Zenith star motif. Zenith has pledged a portion from the sales of each watch to Susan G. Komen.

Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar

Glashutte Original Senator Excellence Perp Calendar

Price: $20,900, Case Size: 42mm, Thickness: 12.4mm, Lug Width: 21mm, Water Resistance: 50 meters, Crystal: Sapphire, Movement: Automatic Caliber 36-12

Glashütte Original’s Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar sports an assortment of delicately balanced displays, combining indications for the time, weekday, month, and leap-year with the German luxury watchmaker’s own meticulously engineered moon-phase display and its hallmark Panorama Date. The 42mm case has discreetly placed correctors in its sides to make easy adjustments to the weekday, month, and moon-phase displays, along with a  “universal” corrector to set or change the day, date, and month simultaneously. The case is water-resistant to 50 meters; the rose-opaline dial of this 100-piece limited edition hosts blue Roman numeral hour markers and blued hands. The movement is Caliber 36-12 — the base Caliber 36, introduced in the brand’s original Senator Excellence models in 2016, with an in-house-made perpetual calendar module.

H. Moser & Cie. Streamliner Center Seconds “Smoked Salmon”

H. Moser & Cie. Streamliner Center Seconds Smoked Salmon

Price: $20,900, Case Size: 40mm, Thickness: 12.1mm, Water Resistance: 120 meters, Crystal: Sapphire, Movement: Automatic HMC 200 Caliber

Moser’s Streamliner family is named for the aerodynamically curved high-speed trains of the early 20th century that inspire the watches’ design. The three-handed Streamliner that followed up the original chronograph model opened up an expanded palette of dial colors for the series, including the unique “Smoked Salmon” execution of this limited-release model released in 2023. The watch’s cushion-shaped stainless steel case measures 40mm and smoothly integrates into a fluidly curving, articulated steel bracelet. The slightly domed sapphire crystal of the case protects the dial, executed in Moser’s signature fumé style and inspired by a very specific species of salmon, prepared for consumption in a process that involves smoking it with Scotch whisky — making the dial not as bright pink as other “salmon” dials but instead ranging in hue from chocolate brown on the edges to a pale gold in the center. The dial’s double-sectored hands have inserts made of Globolight, a ceramic-based luminous material. Inside is Moser’s self-winding HMC 200 movement, equipped with a solid gold oscillating weight and amassing a power reserve of three days. 

Chopard Alpine Eagle 41 XPS “Monte Rosa Pink”

Chopard Alpine Eagle XPS Monte Rosa

Price: $24,300, Case Size: 41mm, Lug Width: 8.20mm, Crystal: Sapphire, Water Resistance: 100 meters, Movement: Automatic Chopard Caliber L.U.C 96.40-L

Chopard’s Alpine Eagle combines the design DNA of its first sports watch, the 1970s St. Moritz, with a modern, organically textured dial motif that evokes the iris of an eagle’s eye. Other avian touches include a seconds-hand counterweight in the shape of a feather, and a multi-textured finish on the case inspired by the sun falling on snow-capped glaciers. Like the original Alpine Eagle, the recently released “Monte Rosa Pink” edition has a case made from Chopard’s proprietary Lucent steel, an alloy composed of 85 percent recycled materials and designed to be extra hard as well as extra brilliant. The case is extra-thin, at just 8mm in profile, and the shimmering colors of the brass-base dial take their inspiration from the pinkish skies over the Monte Rosa range of the Alps. The movement inside, automatic Caliber L.U.C 96.40-L, is similarly thin (just 3.3mm) and boasts a chronometer certification as well as a 65-hour power reserve and a host of decorations.
