Watches Every Man Should Own: The Rose Gold Watch
There are certain wardrobe staples that every stylish man needs to own: a classic blue blazer, the perfect dress shoe, a well-tailored suit – these are all givens. But as we’ve stated many a time before, no ensemble is truly complete without the finishing touches that elevate an outfit to refinement. More often than not, the final piece of the sartorial puzzle is a well chosen wrist watch.
A timepiece says a lot about its wearer, and we’re here to make sure you’re making the right statement. Join us in our series outlining the best choices for a fully rounded watch wardrobe with the timepieces that every man should own.
It’s safe to say that rose gold is having “a moment.” It’s popping up everywhere from jewelry to iPad covers, but that’s not to say that everything rose gold has an expiration date. In fact, one of our favorite places to see an investment in rose gold is on the wrist.
This rose gold and leather Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore F59189 is a perfect example. The rugged octagon case gets just the right amount of elegance from 18kt rose gold, while slim, coordinating hands pick up the lightly blushing tone. A grid patten on the dial, paired with equally boxy luminous markers, creates another solid layer of masculinity through geometry. The supple chocolate leather is just right with the rose gold case, and contrast stitching keeps the strap interesting. Chunky crown and pushers add to the Royal Oak’s considerable presence on the wrist, and help this watch announce loud and clear: Real men wear pink (gold.)
