    Trying to help a good friend of mine, whose looking to purchase a watch to celebrate his 2nd child. (where have i heard this before!).

    Now he's not a watch guy, but anything he gets into he goes deep. Originally he loved the look of the 'John Mayer' gold/ green Rolex - I'm put his mind to rest on this!

    He then cam back with some Breitling Chrono's green dial - nice.

    Likes the Speedy - but worries about the 42mm size.

    Tried on the green Carrera Chrono - but 44mm & felt this was too big.

    Have I imagined a green dial Carrera Elegant, I showed him pictures of the WoS one I owned and he likes its, but I'm sure there was a green variant, or in the pipeline?

    He's also keen on the Tudor Panda and non panda chrono.

    Just advise on the green if anyone knows.

    Of if he wants something even smaller, there's a rumored green among the new 36mm Carreras.

    I tried this and the black/gold version on recently - I did think they were large, but it wouldn’t be enough to put me off. Part of the character of the watch! Green dial was particularly beautiful.
