Watches: Guide to Buying a Rose Gold Watch

Updated on October 30, 2012

Rose gold is a beautiful option for jewelry. It gives you the classy style of gold but it offers something a little bit more interesting for the eyes. Rose gold watches are particularly popular. Watches are worn daily so you don’t want anything too flashy but you do want something really nice and rose gold provides that perfect balance. Rose gold watches are available for both men and women although the styles for the two genders are completely different. If you want to get a great rose gold watch, there are quite a few things that you’ll want to take into consideration.

How Rosy Do You Want Your Rose Gold?

The first decision that you should make is what color of rose gold watch it is that you’re actually looking for. That starts with determining how rosy you want the rose gold to be. Rose gold is actually a gold that has been combined with copper to give it a reddish look. There are typically three levels of color that all fall into the rose gold category. There is red gold, rose gold and pink gold. Each has varying degrees of copper; the more copper, the redder the appearance of the gold. Choosing how red you want your rose gold watch is a great start to picking the right piece of jewelry.

What Other Colors Do You Want In The Rose Gold Watch?

After determining how rosy you want your rose gold watch, you can start thinking about the other colors that you want in the watch. A men’s watch will typically be a black watch or gold watch that only has touches of rose gold since a pink watch would be too effeminate for most men. A black watch band with a watch face made of both black and rose gold is a good choice. In contrast, a women’s rose gold watch may be almost entirely made of rose gold. Or it may be a combination of rose gold and silver in the design. Think about whether there are other colors you’d like for the band or watch face when choosing your rose gold watch. Also make sure to think about the style of watch band that you want – leather, metal, etc.

What Style of Rose Gold Watch Are You Seeking?

Rose gold watches come in many different styles just like any other watch would. Decide in advance whether you’re looking for something classic and traditional in appearance, something effeminate and romantic, something strong and modern or something futuristic. Consider the side of watch that you’re interested in and the additional design features (diamonds, etc.) that you might want included in your watch.

How Much Do You Want to Pay?

There are rose gold watches available at all parts of the cost spectrum. There are rose gold watches available for less than $100 and those that cost more than $10000 each. As with all jewelry, you pretty much get what you pay for. Are you looking for an inexpensive rose gold watch to wear every day? Or do you want something nicer for a special occasion or to give as a gift. It really helps to identify your price range before you start shopping around so that you can limit what you’re looking at to the price range that really suits you.

Are There Watch Brands That Really Appeal To You?

There are many people who couldn’t care less about which brand of watch they were but there are also a lot of people who want to get a good name-brand watch because they know they’re getting quality and prestige with this purchase. Do you care what brand you’re looking at? Do you want an Invicta Rose Gold Watch or a Kenneth Cole Rose Gold Watch? You’ll have to reconcile your desires with the price range that you’ve already set for yourself but it’s nice to think about the brands that you might want.

Additional Features of Your Rose Gold Watch

Now that you’ve determined more or less what you’re looking for in terms of the style, price and brand of the watch, you are ready to get down to the nitty gritty of the purchase. This is something you would do when buying any watch because it’s the part where you pick the functions of the watch that are going to interest you most. For example, last year Casio came out with a solar-powered, shock-resistant rose gold watch. If those are features that interest you then you might want to check that watch out. Alternatively you may want an all-weather watch or a watch with certain timer functions or it may be important to you that the watch is self-winding. Start to think about those additional features and find a rose gold watch that includes those features but also matches the design you want and fits into your price range.

Where To Buy Your Rose Gold Watch

You may be wondering where you should look when trying to find this product that you’ve learned how to shop for. The answer is probably the Internet. There are many different outlets for finding rose gold watches online including online jewelers and auction sites such as eBay. Once you’ve outlined what you’re looking for, you can use the various advanced search functions on these sites to find the rose gold watch that you want to own. Make sure to be smart about shopping online, get a good deal and know what the terms and agreements are before you make the purchase.

    Wow! Rose gold color watches look quite elegant and relaxing to the eyes; some are tired of the color of yellow gold and see it as too flashy. White gold/silver are also preferred but sometimes they're tired of the monochromatic color.

    I love watches, and so far all of my hubs are about them and concerning about timepieces. I hope you may stop by there someday. :)

    Thanks for posting. I really appreciate your hub. Up, awesome, beautiful.

    I'm lucky enough to have a rose gold vintage watch; both the watch case and bracelet are 9 ct gold. It's from the 1930s but still going very well - I love it! To me rose gold is the perfect shade; it's not as bright as yellow gold, but is obviously gold unlike white gold which is easily mistaken for silver. Rose gold has an elegant gleam that no other gold possesses, giving it a very expensive and stylish look.

    Some gold watches are cheap because they are merely gold-plated.

    The really expensives ones are made of solid gold. A solid gold Patek or AP can cost upwards of US$20,000 to more than a million depending on what movement it has inside.

    This applies to all types of gold- yellow, white and rose.

    So please, find out whether the watch is solid gold or gold-plated before paying good one for it.

    I have been really into colored gold lately. I am so tired of the classic yellow gold and white gold is too much like silver for me.

    Personally I prefer to wear a watch on my wrist before I decide to buy it. The weight and feel are very important to being comfortable with it.
