Gold Luxury Watches to Gag For

gold luxury watches to gag for

Somewhere out there is possibly a person who isn't completely enamored with the shining, glittering splendor of yellow gold. That person is not invited to read this blog.

For the rest of us, there's just something about the look of that precious yellow metal that draws us to it with an incredible force. It's luxurious, it's beautiful, it's classy. We see it, we want it.

This gold obsession extends to the world of luxury watches as well. For the most part, yellow gold watches are actually plated or PVD coated stainless steel. Sure, there are higher end watches that will have real, solid gold components. Maybe the bezel or the dial will be made of gold, or maybe there will be a golden strip that runs through the bracelet. But for the most part, it's gold toned, not solid gold.

There are a couple of reasons for this. The first and most obvious reason is cost. An entirely solid gold watch is going to cost, well, a lot. Tens of thousands of dollars, maybe more. The other reason is weight. A solid gold watch is incredibly heavy, and not very comfortable to wear. Also, gold is a relatively soft metal, and wearing around a gold watch on a daily basis could lead to some nasty dings and dents.

But these are luxury watches we're talking about, so of course there are solid gold options out there. Yes, they might cost more than a down payment on your house, but if you've got the money there's simply nothing more powerful-feeling than wearing an entirely gold watch.

The Movado Bold Evolution Gold Dial Gold Plated Men's Watch


If you're drawn to the look of yellow gold Movado watches, then this is the luxury watch for you. Every millimeter, from the bracelet to the signature Movado dot, is gold plated and spectacular looking. The combination of the luxe aesthetic and the artistic Movado design makes for a real showstopper.

Best of all, the Bold Evolution is relatively affordable as far as luxury watches go, and you can get all that opulence in men's Movado watches without having to sell your car to fit it into your budget.

The Gucci G-Timeless Silver Dial Gold Tone Steel 36mm Women's Watch


This masterpiece from Gucci uses PVD gold coating. PVD involves a process that essentially vaporizes gold and sprays it onto another metal, in this case stainless steel. There are a lot of benefits to PVD, the most prominent of which is the fact that it's sturdier and will last longer than regular gold plating as your watch endures the wear and tear of regular use.

Of course, the legendary Gucci fashion spectacle is on full display in this G-Timeless. The diamond pattern is intricate and eye-catching, and the yellow gold color pops in a way that's sure to catch eyes.

The Tag Heuer Aquaracer Lady 300m Yellow Gold & Steel


Of course, maybe you don't want a gold plated or PVD luxury watch. Maybe you're only happy with the real deal. Well, the good news is that there are plenty of options out there that feature solid gold components. Take this Aquaracer from Tag Heuer watches, for instance.

The bezel is a stunning 18kt yellow gold, polished to perfection. There's also a golden strip that runs through the stainless steel bracelet, offering up a nice contrast that works very well aesthetically.

Now look, this is real gold here so you're going to pay a premium for it. But it's not as expensive as you might be thinking, especially with the WatchMaxx discount.

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Paul Newman Black Dial 18kt Yellow Gold Men's Watch


And then there are those of us who simply aren't going to settle for just having some gold in our watch. We want it all! We want an entire solid gold luxury watch, and we want it now!

Our pick for the best all-gold luxury watch is this incredible Rolex Daytona. It's got an 18kt yellow gold case, as well as a beautiful black dial with golden sub-dials. The tachymeter bezel is also made of solid gold, as is the bracelet.

This is one of the most iconic watches in history, and it's easy to see why. It's simply stunning, from top to bottom.

Of course, all that gold doesn't come cheap, but we think it's well worth it if you've got that much room in your budget. There's nothing in the world that's quite like the feeling of wearing a solid gold Rolex. The looks on people's faces when they see it are pure, uh, gold.
