For years most men had one option when it came to the metal of their watch: silver. Bright yellow gold seemed to be the choice for old guys like your dentist, who had been sporting their blingy timepiece since the 70’s when the precious metal was more popular.
And while silver watches are beautiful and classic, things can start to feel…limited. That’s all changed with the resurgence of rose gold; an alloy made by mixing gold and copper, which first became popular at the turn of the 18th century. The best part? Rose gold looks great on any skin tone and pairs well with any color.
Rose gold is more muted than it’s flashy yellow father, creating a sophisticated, detailed look without feeling like you’re a teenage girl wearing a gold Michael Kors tank on her wrist. It has the perks of both gold and silver; a timeless class with a gentlemanly subtlety.
The Classic Slim Watch from Brathwait shown here features a handmade Italian calf leather strap, but is also available in several sharp NATO straps.
