Rose gold has slowly crept into men's fashion over the last few years and now has become a fully fledged part of a Dapper Chapper's look.
Although the likes of Patek Phillipe, Nixon and Michael Kors have been presenting rose gold pieces for years, popularity has increased with the dapper gent after the likes of Bartmans Siegel, Burberry, Gieves and Hawkes and Hackett included these statement pieces in their SS14 shows.
Since then popularity in rose gold accessories and timepieces has continued to grow reflecting the constant need for diversity and evolution in men's fashion.
I've taken a look at six timepieces which uses rose gold in the bracelet, dial or bezel & I'd be keen to know which one you would go by picking your favourite leaving a comment at the end:
1. RAYMOND WEIL MEN'S FREELANCER AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPH WATCH
Full of inspiration, RAYMOND WEIL reinterprets its classics and unveils a completely new variation of its best-selling chronograph, the freelancer Steel & Rose Gold Class. Classical and elegant, its 42mm steel case, mounted on brown leather, stands out through the rose gold notes punctuating its dial.
2. GUCCI UNISEX I-ALARM CHRONOGRAPH WATCH
Gucci is defiantly a brand that appreciates the combination of black and rose colours and recognises the appeal of rose gold.
3. DREYFUSS & CO MEN'S 1890 SKELETON AUTOMATIC WATCH
This striking men's Dreyfuss & Co. 1890 Skeleton Automatic is made with a PVD rose gold plated case featuring a full skeleton dial and rose gold chapter ring. It has a Swiss automatic movement, sapphire crystal and fully waterproof to the Seafarer standard.
4. TISSOT MEN'S LE LOCLE AUTOMATIC WATCH
Le Locle as well as being the name of Tissot's home and heritage, nestled in the Swiss Jura Mountains, it is the name of a hugely popular automatic watch family. The models display exquisite elegance with details such as Roman numerals and a traditional Le Locle signature which complete the picture of classical chic.

The dark brown dial is the highlight with PVD rose gold plated hour markers and hands. It is fitted with an analogue chronograph quartz movement against the croc effect leather strap, this is a stunning gents timepiece that's water resistant to 50 metres. While you wouldn't want to go diving and ruin the leather strap, it will definitely hold up to British summer storms.
6. KENNETT MEN'S SAVRO CHRONOGRAPH WATCH
Simplistic elegance with a classical design for when you need a smart clean look. The watch case is constructed of 316 stainless steel with a rose gold ion plating.

So Dapper Chappers, I'd like to know do you agree rose gold works for gents or do you think it's better left with the girls?
