    That reference is my white whale!
    Every time an acceptebale one comes up for sale it somehow manages to escape my grip or the timing and funds are not right.

    DIBS!

    Thank you! Found it several years ago at a Swiss watch fair, and couldn't believe the condition. Untouched gold cases – especially well designed ones – are a rare treat.

    Lol, I find this hilarious because my wife told me only people that are over 80 wear a gold watch. I was wearing this watch. I had borrowed the bracelet from a good friend.

    Can't have too much gold in your collection. You can only wear too much gold at the same time.;)

    This doesn't get a ton a wear as I don't dress up much, but it will always be a special watch in my collection as it was given to my great grandfather by my great grandmother. Complete with nice engraving to him on the back!

    I am always amused at those people who are adamant that they 'just don't wear gold' under any circumstances. It really came to the fore when the Apollo 11 was announced.....many dismissed it outright because it had a very minimal use of gold, so not acceptable. I've always had gold watches in my collection and I'll wear them anytime, it doesn't have to be a dress up event. A gold watch is always acceptable. Back in the 20's, 30's and 40's gold watches (mostly gold filled) were the norm, few people wore stainless steel. There is just a warm, hefty feel of a gold watch on the wrist that you can't get with steel. I don't have any gold watches with gold bracelets anymore but have a fair number of gold strap watches that I wear. Gold watches will always be desirable.

    Really nice pieces here! Amazing, makes me into the gold watches as well...

    On topic: I’ve noticed in Dutch watch fora, that people are more into gold watches now compared to let’s say 10 years ago. Especially the daydate seems to be more popular lately (though it wasn’t produced in SS, I’ve seen it more and more in yellow gold last times).

    Gold, stainless, platinum, titanium, etc... if you like wearing it then it’s in fashion.
