Rose-gold time­pieces for him are blos­som­ing in the luxury watch world.

The pop­u­lar­ity of rose gold for men’s watches has grown quickly, bring­ing a breath of spring to the finest de­signs in the luxury mar­ket. Though this gold al­loy can be traced back hun­dreds of years, its rich­ness and depth still catch the at­ten­tion of to­day’s trend­set­ting Mi­ami men. Now a num­ber of watch­mak­ers are of­fer­ing pro­pri­etary shades of rose, pink, or red gold that turn their time­pieces into must-have col­lectibles. The blush hue gives these watches a vin­tage look that makes them an el­e­gant choice— both time­less and on trend. For more watch fea­tures and ex­panded cov­er­age, go to oce­an­­esand-jew­elry.
