    So this may sound obscure, but I think the watches in my collection that have stainless-steel cases and gold-toned markers are my favorite. I think the gold color just pops more on a steel background than matching steel hardware.

    Here are a few of mine - all keepers!

    My first ever vintage watch:

    My prized Constellation:

    And another shot of it for good measure:

    I'd love to see yours (it doesn't have to just be Omega)!

    My dad's JLC from 1945. A sentimental favorite of mine. I particularly like how the stitching on the strap compliments the rose gold color of the hands and indices. I wore it with a JB Champion bracelet for years, but I believe this relatively new strap compliments the watch even more.
    Yes, I agree that SS cases with gold bits rock... I'm enjoying this thread.

    This 38mm Doxa Valjoux 22 gave me something to do with a two-tone JB Champion bracelet I had lying around.
