When it comes to lighting up the wrist, all that glitters is gold. Full gold timepieces are no longer the gaudy statements they once were, especially when you temper their shine with an off-duty tee-and-jeans look. So go bold with gold and make eyes water whenever you raise your hand.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer
The Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer makes an impression in full Sedna gold. Besides the new material makeup and laser-ablated world map (previously in enamel), the fan favourite remains the same with vertical teak stripes on the dial, inclusion of Bienne on the city ring, and a high-tech Master Chronometer calibre.
The Gucci Grip collection of quartz timepieces is every bit as idiosyncratic as the ready-to-wear, telling time through rotating hour, minute and date discs within three small apertures. Everything else is masked by a rounded square case in PVD gold, a seventies-inspired look meant to evoke skateboard decks (and not weighing scales, you heathen).
Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Sandblasted
Industrial titanium has been the outfit of choice for the Octo Finissimo timepieces, but this skinny beauty flaunts a new shiny look in full rose gold. The sandblasted treatment mattifies the vivid colour, allowing the watch to shine without tackiness.
