More information and FAQ's Rose Gold Watches
Rose gold is an alloy made popular by Russian jewellery makers in the early 19th century. At one time it was known as Russian gold, but that term is no longer used given the prevalence of rose gold throughout the world. The watchmaking industry appreciates rose gold due to its unique aesthetic that combines the traditional gold colour with hues of orange, red, and pink.
Top FAQ's will help you better understand rose gold as a material for watchmaking. The more you know about it, the more prepared you will be to make an informed choice.
What are rose gold watches made of?
The first thing to understand about rose gold is that it is not a pure metal. It is an alloy, which is to say a combination of two other metals. Rose gold is a combination of gold, copper and, sometimes, silver. For example, 18K rose gold is 75% gold, 22.25% copper, and 2.75% silver.
A rose gold watch is not made of solid rose gold. Rather, it is stainless steel covered with a rose gold plating. You get all of the aesthetic benefits of rose gold without the unbelievable expense of solid rose gold. The one unfortunate thing about plating is that it can lose its lustre over time.

Are rose gold watches in style for men?
Not only are rose gold watches in style for men, but they have also been for quite a while. Rose gold has overcome both white and yellow gold as the alloy of choice for men's designer watches. It offers the classic elegance of traditional gold with a slightly lower price point and a definitive colour difference.
Watchmakers can vary the colour of rose gold by adding other materials to the gold and copper. Men seem to favour shades that are closer to straight copper, red, or orange. They tend to shy away from lighter shades that lean toward pink. Needless to say, there are a variety of rose gold variations to choose from.
Men have a tendency to reserve rose gold for business formal and formal dress. It is not a good choice among men who prefer a more casual style of dress. For instance, it would be unusual to see a man wearing a rose gold watch along with casual beach wear. A dive or field watch would be more appropriate to that setting.
Are rose gold watches in style for women?
Women seem to be as enthusiastic about rose gold watches as the men. It is all about warmer tones, and rose gold certainly fits the bill there. Rose gold works extremely well for women who prefer earth tones and warm colours – especially brown, amber, and bronze. This suggests that rose gold is appropriate for business and casual settings.
It is interesting to note that women are less averse to wearing rose gold watches with cool colours. We are seeing the ladies pair rose gold with a variety of greens and blues. That said, rose gold and purple aren't seen together as much.
Unlike the men, ladies tend to gravitate to lighter shades of rose gold, especially those bordering on pink. They are less likely to appreciate darker shades closer to red. But of course, style is in the eye of the beholder. A rose gold watch in a darker shade is not out of bounds for women.
Rose gold is an excellent choice if you are looking for a new wristwatch made with precious metals. The popular alloy is as desirable as it has ever been among both men and women.
