Gold Watches at Wempe—Understated and Stylish
Whether you prefer the warm glow of yellow gold or the slightly cooler sheen of rose gold, a gold watch is always a fashion statement. Similar in style to stainless steel watches, gold watch cases and bracelets are made of precious gold.
The Many Shades of Gold
In the search for a gold watch, you can choose between different gold tones. Pure yellow gold is too soft to make an entire watch. However, this precious metal can be mixed with other materials, which makes gold watches more robust and resistant. The so-called alloy also gives the gold its individual tone. A classic yellow gold alloy is created by combining the finest gold, silver, copper, and zinc. For cooler rose gold, the copper content is increased, and platinum is added. Rose gold contains a lot of copper naturally. To obtain a clear white gold, palladium is used.
Tips for Buying and Caring for Gold Watches
When buying a gold watch, you first need to make sure that the timepiece fits snugly on your wrist. The outer lugs of the strap should not stick out beyond your wrist, instead the strap and case should form a perfect circle when viewed from the side. Once you have decided on your favorite gold watch from Cartier, A. Lange & Söhne, or one of our other brands, we will shorten the bracelet to the optimal length for you. After your purchase, we offer extensive services for your gold watch, including regular checks to ensure it is telling the time accurately, replacing the battery, and intensive cleaning.
