Gold is created by supernovas when neutron stars collide and is thought to be the first metal known to humans — but more importantly: it likely looks good on your wrist. It also has a long history in watchmaking, but you might even look right past all that simply for its famously bewitching shininess. Stainless steel tends to be the preferred material for most 1:1 US replica watches today, but there’s still a potent allure to the gold watch.
Go back to before the 1920s and 1930s when stainless steel was first used in watchmaking and you’ll find a lot of AAA top fake watches made from silver and gold. These are softer materials that are easier to machine — and it helps that they polish up particularly well. Unlike silver, though, gold is also highly resistant to tarnishing. Even after steel began to be used for watch cases, it didn’t become common until many decades later, and elegant gold high quality replica watches remained popular.
Gold has weight both cultural and physical. Around the 1940s in the US, for example, a tradition began of presenting a gold watch to retiring employees after decades of service at a company. That practice has mostly been abandoned today, but the gold watch as a symbol of value, achievement and just something special remains in the popular memory.
If you want a gold watch today, there are many choices. You can simply get the look with a “gold-toned” or “gold-plated” watch, one with gold plating over a less expensive metal (usually steel), or you can spring for one of solid gold. Most solid gold luxury fake watches use 18 carat gold, an alloy of 75% gold mixed with other metals that help harden it (and cost less than pure 24 carat, which is generally too soft for perfect copy watches anyway). A more affordable option can also (but rarely) be found in 14 carat (about 53%) gold. The misleading term gold-filled refers to a thin (less than 5% of total weight, but thicker than gilding or gold plating) layer of gold over a core of another metal, but this is uncommon in modern replica watches for sale.
Watchmakers often like to use gold because it allows them to mark up their products. The price of a gold watch will often be considerably more than the value of the material itself compared to the same watch in steel, but watchmakers can also add value through finishing — even though gold is easier to work with than a cheaper, harder metal like steel. In addition to classic yellow gold, many watch companies use red gold, pink gold, rose gold and even produce and name their own unique alloys.
For today’s chrysophilist, you’ll find several options below offering simply the warm or blingy look of gold for affordable prices, as well as several more serious investments that’ll remind you of their auriferous composition by the weight on your wrist.
