Hello, everyone! Many of you have very helpfully chimed in on my previous post helping me to select a Rolex watch for my upcoming 40th. That post can be found here: http://forum.purseblog.com/the-jewelry-box/please-help-me-choose-rolex-i-need-your-762403.html Thanks in large part to your input, I have further narrowed down my choices to either the 31mm solid 18 kt yellow gold with President bracelet, or the 31mm two-tone ss/18kt yellow gold. At one point I had decided on all-gold for sure, then I started second guessing myself as many whose opinions I solicited in real life thought that the two-tone was a better option. This got me to doing a bit more research and reading on two-tone watches. It seems that some love them, and some hate them (this is true of anything, I suppose). However I also had a look through the celebrity watch thread and noticed that there are virtually no two-tone watches featured there. This got me wondering about why this is? It seems that most celebrities have solid toned watches - yellow or white. I'm sure that it's in part due to the fact that the cost of a solid gold (or platinum) watch would not be a limiting factor for celebrities, but I do see a lot of white gold / steel celebrity watches as well. It's not that I put a lot of stock in celebrity trends, however I do take it as a bit of a barometer read on the state of fashion and styling. So, I have a few questions: 1) What is your opinion on two-tone watches (Rolex specifically)? Are they still a 'classic' choice, or not? 2) Could an all-gold watch still be worn with white metal jewelery and accessories? I would get a white (or silver) dial, which I think would tie into my rings (which are all diamonds in platinum). I am wondering if a gold watch would go with other white metal jewelery. For instance, the other night I was wearing a black one-shouldered cocktail dress that had a belt with silver beads at the end. I wore my silver CDC and another silver bracelet. I was wondering if I had an all gold watch if it would have looked ridiculous, or ok? What is your feeling about mixing metals? I am having a really hard time with my deliberations, so I really appreciate any and all feedback! I'll post a photo of a 31mm all gold and a 31mm two tone for reference... Thank you!!
