Root beer GMT in full gold? I prefer it in two tone but it’s sweet either way.

vacheron overseas in full gold is attractive too.
my very next watch is a SS GMT, so as attractive as the gold options are, it’s a direction that I’m not too keen on...

the gold VC overseas are gorgeous, but I worry about the proportions on my wrist...a great option though, so yes, duly noted...

might be _too_ much gold for my wrist

also would be redundant with the ss

what beauty though!
Did you want something with a gold bracelet or you’re cool with just a gold watch with leather band? If the latter, Vacheron just released the 1921 in white gold with a brown calfskin strap.

If I was looking to buy a gold watch for a major occasion (like a 50th birthday), I would go with the Lange 1 in RG.

Still on the fence. I think leaning full gold (bracelet) though. Like, why the fuck not? Life is short.

It’s astonishing to me, though, how a leather strap completely defangs a gold watch. Just totally inconspicuous on a leather strap...

Gold Nautilus is out of the question unless you’re a true big timer. I can only think of 4 other brands right now.

1.Omega- Aquaterra or Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th moonshine gold
2. AP ROC rose gold. These are somewhat obtainable unlike the gold 15202 and 15500
3. Rolex- pick your choice
4. VC Overseas- pick one of the gold options

You might recall that Omega AT rose gold is on my list. Yes to anything Rolex, as mentioned, and then things get less likely (no AP, no Nautilus, but VC Overseas...maybe...?)

Do any of you with gold watches wear them with any regularity? My 50th is also coming up in a few years. It would be nice to get a gold watch, but I know that such a watch is incompatible with my lifestyle. I would rather get something like the Czapek Antarctique that I would wear regularly.

(I wear a vintage gold piece on a leather strap very frequently...totally blends in...)

I wore my gold DD40 every single day when I owned it. These things aren’t meant to be babied. Having said that, it stood out like a mother fucker.
