A solid gold watch is the ultimate expression of affluence and success. It's a representation of making it to a point in your life where wearing gold just becomes part and parcel to your lifestyle. Fancy clothes, fast cars, lavish holidays and gold watches. Just rolls off the tongue, right? And choosing a gold watch is something that is considered intimate, personal and likened to that of raising a trophy above your head to the tune of Queen's "We Are The Champions" So, for the man that has everything and for those on their way to getting everything, we've found 12 of the best gold watches we could find on Amazon that you can get your hands on. Enjoy!
Patek Philippe 5980R Nautilus Chronograph
Nothing says baller like a solid gold Patek Philippe. To one up your best mate, why don't you make that a solid gold 5980R Nautilus Chronograph on a matching solid gold bracelet. Like wearing a solid gold bar on your wrist, literally.
Audemars Piguet 26574 Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar
An Audemars Piguet Royal Oak clad in gold with a matching bracelet and a perpetual calendar. Seriously cool stuff.
Patek Philippe 5205R Annual Calendar
A touch more reserved, the 5205R Annual Calendar is one of the best annual calendars on the market right now. Clad in rose gold, featuring a black dial and with those curved window apertures, the 5205R is flawless.
Rolex GMT-Master II 126715
A solid Everose gold GMT-Master II sits right up there on my thing-to-buy-once-I-win-the-lotto list, and can you really blame me?
Audemars Piguet 15400OR Royal Oak
The Audemars Piguet 15400OR Royal Oak is one of the finest examples of a solid gold luxury sports watch. So here it is.
Laurent Ferrier Galet Traveller
An odd choice, but the rose gold-cased Laurent Ferrier Galet Traveller is an intriguing specimen that marries the worlds of independent watchmaking with luxury materials superbly.
Patek Philippe 5164R Aquanaut
The Patek Philippe 5164R Aquanaut is the quintessential watch for the traveller that wants to ball but not excessively. Hues of brown compliment the rose gold case and while it's loud once you notice it, the 5164R can go largely unnoticed.
Rolex Daytona 116505
A solid gold Rolex Daytona with a beautiful chocolate brown dial and offsetting black sub-dials is also high up there on my wish list. Here's a spectacular example you can buy. Lucky you.
Patek Philippe 5235R Annual Calendar Regulator
The 5235R Annual Calendar Regulator is one of my all-time favourite watches. The combination of that vertically brushed graphite dial, the warm rose gold case and that incredible micro-rotor powered calibre 21-260 REG QA is just supreme.
Girard-Perregaux Laureato Skeleton
Unfortunately for Girard-Perregaux, the Laureato didn't seem to sit too well with many enthusiasts or collectors. But, it's still a fantastic watch. The skeletonised version is gorgeous, but in gold it's something else altogether. And, relatively speaking of course, it's priced rather well in comparison to other solid gold openworked pieces.
Patek Philippe 5167R Aquanaut
Similar to the 5164R, the Patek Philippe 5167R Aquanaut has all the tell-tale signs of a fly-under-the-radar baller's watch. The vertically brushed bezel needs to be seen in the metal to be fully appreciated, believe me.
Rolex Day-Date 40 228238
If you ever have the opportunity to purchase a solid gold Day-Date 40 and you have the means necessary to do so comfortably, then I implore you, hand on heart, to get it. Regret will not be something you'd associate with this watch. Ever.
