Do gold watches look tacky?
Gold watches can look tacky, depending on how they are made and how they are worn.
Most times, the gold-plated watches (which are the most popular kinds today) can be so poorly made that they stand out against your dressing. That is why you should always go with reputable brands when you shop for a gold wristwatch.
Likewise, you can switch things up by adding a rose gold timepiece to your collection. It will not only match the styles that you paired with gold before but also bring something unique to the table.
What is the best gold wristwatch?
To choose the best wristwatch, you would have to consider all:
- The brand
- Wristwatch size
- Your taste
- Preferred watch movement
- Price point/ value for money and
- Quality, among other things.
If you are going for solid gold, shop around with luxury watchmakers. You can, however, still get a feeling of luxury when you have offers like:
You can choose to pair any of the finishes with stainless steel or leather straps. Try mesh on for size if you haven't used them before.
Does a gold wristwatch go with everything?
Depending on the kind of gold – from the classic finishes to contemporary rose gold – these watches will go in line with accessories and outfits with brown, tan, beige, and other earth tones. The metallic is also a clear match for neutral hues and deserves a seat in every collection.
How do you wear a gold wristwatch casually?
Most ladies do not know that you can wear a golden wristwatch at any time and day.
The first and most important trick is to be bold with your choice. Otherwise, the lack of confidence shines through your demeanor when wearing such a fine timepiece. Furthermore, make sure the watch is paired to the event at hand.
For example, the Native watch (suggested above) is without bells and whistles, bare enough to be worn with dress accessories or as a casual watch. Finally, pick a watch that complements your casual look – which differs from person to person.
Do gold watches scratch easily?
A gold watch from the same manufacturer/ under the same series will scratch almost the same as, say, a silver watch.
Here, the color is not the issue but the quality of materials employed by the manufacturer. In other words, only shop from a premium and trustworthy brand.
Of course, most of these watches are gold-plated, but some watchmakers pay more attention to detail than others.
That said, though, the metal is premium, but it is not diamond that will rarely record any scratches. While good watches won't scratch easily, care still must be taken to prevent them from scratching at all.
How do you dress with a gold watch?
We mentioned that the Native watch is a nice dress watch to have in your collection, but how do you pair it with dresses?
The golden rule is to go against the tone of your watch on your outfit.
For example, a light gold-tone watch pairs well with darker colors such as brown and deep shades of blue. On the other hand, the beauty of a deeper golden shade is best appreciated on lighter colors such as yellow and subtle shades of any other bright/ dark color.
Another important rule is to avoid two-tone watches. Unless you are confident that you can pull them off, that is.
The secret is in the contrast.
What is the best dial for a gold watch?
Dark dials are usually the winner in every argument but not this time.
White dials go exceptionally well with a gold watch, especially if the frame is finished with rose gold too. Likewise, we have seen mother-of-pearl dials married to gold watch finishes look extremely chic and pleasant.
If you so prefer, though, nothing is stopping you from buying a golden-frame watch with a dark dial.
What is the best bracelet for a gold watch?
To achieve a complete jewelry appeal, look no further than stainless steel bracelets. We recommend having the same finish on your gold strap as with the case. Likewise, mesh band material finds better application in women's fashion than with men – and they go with these watches any day.
But then, who said you had to have a bracelet on gold watches at all cost?
Although more common on men, women can also match a nice gold watch with premium leather. With more leather hue choices (brown, light brown, pink, black, etc.) these days, there is no shortage of how well you can style your watches.
