09 Feb Pink Is for Men: Great Rose Gold Watches for Valentine’s Day
Move over women, pink is not just exclusively for you. Today, especially when it comes to the watch world, some of the hottest luxury watches for men – from sporty to sophisticated and ultra-complicated – are crafted in 18-karat pink gold. This is a great thing with Valentine’s Day around the corner — it gives you the perfect gift idea.
Rose gold has roots dating back to the Second World War when steel and white metals were needed for military arms. The jewelry industry added the copper alloy to the gold to use less solid gold, and the result was a super rich rose color that quickly became in high demand. Today, watch brands offer pink or rose gold in varying degrees, with 3N the palest shade, 4N a bit deeper pink, and 5N being the darkest reddest rose gold. While jewelry is also made in rose gold, the color has translated magnificently to watches.
