Before we take a closer look at the best styles of gold watches out there, let's quickly go through the reasons why gold watches are amongst some of the best watches for men. If you've never worn a gold watch before, it's probably because you subconsciously associate this particular style with B.A. Baracus from The A-Team. And how could we blame you? However, it's time to shake that look off and focus on the real styling possibilities a men's gold watch can offer you.
Best Gold Watches for Men
If you're feeling confident and in the mood to try out an all gold version such as this Nixon number, made for those of you out there who like to be a little bit more flash but still keeping all of your style. Because of the brightness and full on colour of this timepiece you'll want to keep the rest of your look toned down and keep it to one colour or tone.
Try an all black look - this tee from The Idle Man, with a touch of print on the front, still keeps a simple look, but just adds a touch of detail without being too over-the-top. Team the tee with a pair of black jeans and some high top trainers - you can always throw on an overcoat or leather biker jacket if you feel like it.
You can try mixing up the colours instead of having all black. Try an all grey look too, the great thing about grey is that you can play around with the shades you wear whilst still keeping it tonal.
Men's Rose Gold Watch
If you're looking for a softer shade of gold, a rose gold watch is exactly what you need. This variation of the usual gold watch is the perfect companion to any smart casual outfit combination. Take this piece from Daniel Wellington for example. If you're looking to add an elegant and minimal touch of soft gold, this watch will do just that.
A watch in rose gold will really give its best when paired with a pair of smart chinos, a crisp shirt and maybe even a blazer, why not. Don't forget that since the frame is the only golden element, it's best to match your shoes to the colour of the leather straps. It's all about keeping an eye on details.
If you're after a more classic approach to wearing gold watches then there's no better way than wearing it with a suit. This watch from Unknown is spot on, still keeping its classic look but having the full impact of the gold face. Thanks to the grey strap, it maintains the classic feel and can easily be worn with a black suit.
This suit from The Idle Man is a perfect option to wear with this watch. Slim fitted and classically cut you can easily team it with a gold faced watch - worn with a grey roll neck jumper and a pair of brogues and you'll be office ready in no time.
