It is rare to see an all-gold watch these days. The spectacle of the moment, even in men’s watches, is full-on diamonds. While the all-gold timepiece had come to be considered too flashy when rendered in yellow gold, it seems downright dignified when done in pink gold (especially compared to the glare of diamonds). And especially if the watch is an iconic sports watch like the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph.

The signature grande tapisserie dial looks good in black when contrasted with the pink gold case and integrated bracelet. And at 41mm, it is “jumbo” sized. Even the rotor is 18k gold. The satin-brushed finishes cut down on the flash factor, though, and the iconic eight screws are in white gold, giving this watch an element of subtlety.
