Two tone watches are absolutely timeless! Watchmakers have been utilizing this design technique since the 1900s and many vintage two-toned styles can still be found for resale today. Up-to-date watchmakers are also releasing two-toned watchbands on a regular basis.
Two-toned wristwatches are incredibly versatile. They can be worn with platinum, silver and white gold jewelry as well as they can be paired with yellow gold jewelry.
