Blue Vs. Green At Baselworld 2018: Green Isn‘t The New Blue (Hint: It’s Green)
by Ian Skellern
Baselworld 2018 began for the Quill & Pad team on Wednesday, March 21, and from our very first meetings it looked obvious that green was back.
The following day further confirmed that view as we saw one fantastic green-themed watch after another. Remarking on the apparent predominance of green this year over the perennial blue to one brand representative, the reply was, “Green is the new blue.”
But two days do not a Baselworld make, and green largely faded from view as we continued with the fair and became inundated with blues of all hues.
Here are a few of my favorite blue and green watches from the fair to see how they compare side by side.
So what do you think: is green the new blue, or is it just green?
