Shopping for a watch doesn't come easy for some, especially to those who aren't familiar with the technical terms of horology (a.k.a. the "study and measurement of time," FYI!). Well, if you're part of the clueless cohort who's only beginning to learn the ropes, but you do know a thing or two about style, then perhaps the aesthetic of these fabulous rose gold watches is a good enough reason for you to take a second look—and to eventually whip out that credit card.
Here are some of our top pink picks that are too gorgeous to pass up on. If you've got a significant other, perhaps you could drop hints at these timepieces right in time for Valentine's. Cheesy? We think not.
1. Rado True Automatic Diamonds
True Automatic Diamonds, $2681.51 (approximately P136,235.25), RADO, Shangri-la Plaza
This romantic offering from Rado is equal parts sophisticated and chic without being overtly feminine. It's got all the features of a classic, modern wristwatch: a titanium bracelet, a curved sapphire crystal case, and a mother-of-pearl dial dotted with rose gold indices. Just to complete the feminine finesse, the dial is paved with 60 shimmering diamonds. It's a discreet timepiece that can easily transition for your evening affairs.
2. Citizen Promaster Eco-Drive AQUALAND 200m 30th Anniversary Limited Model
Promaster Eco-Drive AQUALAND 200m, $775 (approximately P39,567.62), CITIZEN, SM Makati
For those who live active lifestyles and are looking for a watch that looks sporty yet can be worn even with your everyday outfits, then Citizen's Promaster line, created especially for professional athletes, will do just the trick. We love the Marine model for its simple black design and subtle rose gold accents. Although it's a diver's watch, its durability makes it perfect for any kind of sports.
3. Rolex Datejust
Datejust, P540,500, ROLEX, The Podium
If investing in a Rolex has been in the back of your mind for quite some time now, might we suggest a model that's distinctly "Rolex"? Introducing, the Datejust. It's practically the poster child of the Swiss luxury brand. It's got most of the things the brand is known for: the classic Oyster bracelet, the cyclop lens (that lets you read the date easily), and the special Swiss movement hiding inside. Plus, don't you think the bracelet's rose gold band looks seamless with the pink dial?
5. Omega Speedmaster 38 Co-Axial Chronograph 38mm
Speedmaster 38 Co-Axial Chronograph 38mm, price unavailable, OMEGA, Greenbelt 5
If you're looking for a piece to jumpstart your luxury watch collecting journey, let it be the Speedmaster. It's a refined yet casual watch that's easy on the eyes and totally wearable for everyday use. Plus, it's one of Omega's most popular models to date, so you know you can't go wrong. We think it’s a chic timepiece that’s perfect for any kind of outfit, thanks to its mocha-colored leather strap and “cappuccino” dial, accented by the bright rose gold case and bezel.
5. Piaget Altiplano Watch
Altiplano Watch, price unavailable, PIAGET, City of Dreams
Classic elegance doesn’t necessarily have to mean outdated. This simple yet stylish watch from Piaget takes vintage elements like the round face and alligator leather strap, but makes it modern through the 18-carat rose gold case. It’s a classic piece that anyone of any age would totally admire, and it even passes for a dress watch for those fancy evening occasions.
6. Patek Philippe Nautilus
Nautilus, price unavailable, PATEK PHILIPPE, Shangri-la Plaza
Now that we’ve covered everything from sporty watches to discreet designs, here’s something a little flashy but nonetheless tasteful: this all-rose gold model from Patek Philippe. The nautilus has been around since 1976, but we’re drooling over this ultra-sleek piece with its cool octagonal bezel and brown dial. At 40mm diameter, it’s slightly larger than typical women’s watches, making it quite the sartorial statement we encourage you to make.
