Along my path into gold watches, I’ve experienced the plated, the dressy, the travel-specific, and more, but few gold watches speak more directly to me than traditionally-steel sports models that have been rendered in gold. Think of the Royal Oak (which is almost anachronistic in gold, given the intention of its original design) or perhaps an older GMT-Master. These are gold watches that take a known quantity and leverage the fun and feel of gold in the hopes of forging something different. And, while I’d wager most (if not all of you) know those examples, Omega does this too, and to no small effect.
