Black and Gold Watches for Men and WomenPosted: Tue 16th May 2017 05:38 PM
The black and gold watch trend of 2016 is still a strong look in 2017. Some of the world's best watch brands have beautiful timepieces on the market that offer the style with serious flair. From the playful spin of Kate Spade, to Royal London and its classic take on black and gold, we've picked seven of the best to give you some shopping inspiration.
Unisex black and gold watches
- Tissot Men's and Women's Goldrun 18ct gold watch
Swiss watch brands may be 10 a penny, but few have the kudos of Tissot, who have been doing what they do best since 1853. You really get that much-heralded Swiss quality with a Tissot timepiece. Blessed with an 18ct gold case, oily black tortoise shell strap, and plain gold face, this watch has bags of old-school charm which somehow manages to have an eternal appeal. The ladies' version is equally as special; a perfect choice for a special occasion.
Women's black and gold watches
- Kate Spade New York Ladies' Metro 5 O'Clock
Playful sophistication is core in the Kate Spade collection, and this Metro 5 O Clock piece embodies that rule-tweaking, free-spirited nature. The simple, slim black leather strap and sleek gold casing does a great job framing the distinctive black face, which plays homage to the notion that it's always cocktail time somewhere in the world.
The second hand in striped white and baby blue gives the watch another pop of colour, along with the pink cocktail and bright red spade.
- Olivia Burton Ladies' Animal Motif Watch
Mixing nature with a clean design proves less is more with this distinctive piece from Watch Shop bestseller brand Olivia Burton. The simplicity of the slim, leather strap set against the largely sparse face allows the eye to discover the golden bumblebee in the centre of the face in its own time. It's somehow a thoroughly modern watch with a vintage twist.
- Michael Kors Ladies' Bradshaw Chronograph
This big and bold number from Michael Kors' ladies' range is typical of the New York brand's indulgent aesthetic, making good use of oversized Roman numerals and chronograph features. The jet-black face helps embolden these details, while the chunky, gold tone metal bracelet allows this watch to stand out on the wearer's wrist. It'll team up perfectly with ultra-smart casual looks.
Men's black and gold watches
- Royal London Men's Westminster Skeleton Automatic Watch
Royal London has been crafting beautiful watches since 1939. All these decades of experience mean it's a bit of a dab hand at creating pieces that are effortlessly elegant. This kinetic skeleton watch is something of a conversation piece, and features a smooth gold-plated casing, classic-inspired numerals and intricate gold mechanics.
The tortoise shell black leather strap provides an understated contrast to the complex face. Combined, it's a sophisticated look that that's showy enough for business or special occasions.
- Diesel Men's Rasp Watch
Diesel is always at the forefront of high street trends, and its take on the classic black and gold watch is distinctively Diesel. The plain, black leather strap helps set off the matt, PVD gold-plated casing and chunky dial. The striking black face features oversized golden markers and the brand's iconic logo.
The exclusive appeal of black and gold together manages to be modern and timeless, allowing you to choose a watch that has longevity in the fickle world of fashion.
