rose gold watch
Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch, rose gold and sapphire, S$40,000, Cartier
Not only do we love the rose gold hue of this Cartier Ballon Blue de Cartier, we also love how the feminine round shape of its case, which is inspired by balloons, is juxtaposed against the angular roman numerals. Pair this with a tailored pantsuit and pointed mules for the office to look sharp AF.
Reverso Classic Small Duetto, pink gold, price available in store, Jaeger LeCoultre
Jaeger LeCoultre is famed for its reversible watch face technology. You’ll get two designs in one — the silvered grey guilloché you see here and a black dial with gold hands on the other side. Both are equally sophisticated, no matter which side you choose. Contrast the boxy silhouette of this piece with a slinky slip dress for a sexy date night outfit.
Possession rose gold diamond watch, price available in store, Piaget
Haven’t you heard? Green dial watches are the big thing, simply because it’s unique and cool, not to mention elegant. Here, this green Piaget watch is given the diamond treatment and will amp up any look you decide to pair it with. It can even make your weekend t-shirt and jeans combo look a ton more sophisticated.
Ingenieur Automatic, S$20,500, IWC Schaffhausen
Black and gold is a classic colour combination that can never go wrong. Pair this opulent, unisex IWC Schaffhausen design with a cream broderie anglaise dress and a pair for boots for a quirky mix of edgy and feminine, before heading for brunch with the in-laws.
Serpenti Tubogas, S$70,400, Bulgari
Part jewellery and part timepiece, this Bulgari iteration is great for days when 1) you have no time or 2) you want to make a statement with your accessories. It will even make a simple black gown look black-tie ready.
Carrera Calibre 9, S$8,900, Tag Heuer
We chose this colourway combination from the iconic Tag Heuer Carrera series because we love the juxtaposition between the warm, feminine rose gold hue and the cool, masculine silvery steel design. Decorated with a crown of diamonds, this piece is great for injecting a little personality to a ho-hum shirt and pants outfit.
rose gold watch 2
Party watch rose gold-tone, S$469, Calvin Klein
For tired work mornings when you can’t be bothered to fuss over which appropriate accessory to wear, this Calvin Klein design takes the guesswork out with this contemporary fusion of a timepiece and bracelet. Wear with a purple blouse, grey pencil skirt and nude pumps for the office.
Tailor three-hand rose gold-tone watch, US$135 (S$186), Fossil
If you’re bored of the usual plain watch dial that most watches come with, then opt for this stunner from Fossil. We love the mosaic mother-of-pearl pattern as it adds a touch of fantastical iridescence to your weekend outfits. It makes even a crop tank and high waist skirt combo look good.
Le Couronnement rose gold-tone watch, S$189, Cluse
Great for those who prefer a pared down silhouette but don’t mind a little drama too, Cluse latest addition, Le Couronnement — which means coronation in French — sports a sleek round dial studded with unique faceted hexagons. Wear this with your favourite neutral combo for both work and play.
Bella Ora Oval, S$590, Tissot
How often do you see an oval shaped watch case? We also love how the white mother-of-pearl dial complements the rich rose gold tones to create an elegant design that screams understated femininity. Pair this with an ethereal white dress.
Classic petite Melrose rose gold-tone watch, S$249, Daniel Wellington
Daniel Wellington is well-loved for its simple elegant design. Here, this piece comes with a complementary rose gold mesh strap, which is interchangeable for any other straps in their stable, for a modern-meets-vintage finish. Wear this with a white shirt french tucked into black wide-legged pants for work.
Cosmic Rock blue and rose gold-tone watch, S$649, Swarovski
Fans of the popular Swarovski Cosmic Rock watch series will have a new colourway to collect with this blue/rose gold iteration introduced this S/S’19. We love how the blue pebbled stone effect contrasts against the smooth shine of the rose gold. Pair this with a denim jumpsuit and white sneakers for a cool weekend look.
