Rose gold has slowly crept into men’s fashion over the last few years and now it’s seen as a fully fledged, essential part of a Dapper Chapper’s wardrobe.
Although the likes of Patek Phillipe and Michael Kors have been presenting rose gold pieces for years, popularity with the dapper gent has increased after the likes of Bartmans Siegel, Burberry, Gieves and Hawkes and Hackett included these statement pieces in their SS14 shows.
Since then the popularity of rose gold accessories and timepieces has continued to grow reflecting the constant need for diversity in the evolution in men’s fashion.
We’ve looked at five timepieces available at the watchshop.com that displays the use of rose gold for the bracelet, dial or bezel:
