    I just bought my first rose gold watch (ALS 1815). Do folks here match belt buckle to that? Frankly haven't been able to find many belts with rose gold buckle. I've also got a plat wedding band. Do I not worry about matching my watch to that?

    Isn't that the kind of thing you worry about before you buy a rose gold watch?
    :D

    I remember Mont Blanc having a belt with a rose gold buckle. Really nice too. I think rose gold looks fine with silver anyways, but I'd have to see the combination to be certain.

    OP, I would not worry too much about this. I like matching my wedding band with the watch, but IMHO taking the belt buckle into consideration takes it to a whole new level. Also, as an owner of a sophisticated timepiece you get a free pass. If anything I'd say that rose gold with high polish steel looks better than yellow gold with the same. (In general, I am not a fan of yellow gold at all.)

    If in doubt, invest into pants you can wear with proper suspenders. Problem solved :)
