Watches With Stunning Stone Dials

Rocks have never looked so elegant. Watch brands craft stunning stone watch dials using semiprecious gemstones and even meteors.


Stone dials are absolutely mesmerizing. Of course, not just any stone will do. Watch brands typically use semiprecious gemstones with interesting patterns and natural color variations. Malachite and tigereye are popular choices because they have vibrant, colorful stripes. For more muted watches, artisans look to marble or solid-colored stones, like onyx. Opal is another stunning choice. These fiery stones come in a range of hues, and the finest examples have a marvelous play of color that shimmers and seems to change as the light hits it. The rarest of all stone dials aren’t from deep beneath the earth’s surface; they’re crafted from meteorites that have fallen to Earth. Many watch brands choose to highlight the beauty of the stones by omitting all extra markings, including hour markers, creating an elegant, uninterrupted canvas for these beautiful stones. Here, we round up the best stone-dial watches from the finest luxury brands.
