9 Solid Gold Watches For Your Next Level Up

So you've just been given a huge bonus, made a bucket-load of cash from crypto or stumbled across a duffle-bag of unmarked bills and you're wondering what you should buy to step up your wrist game? Say no more fam, we got you. From Rolex to Patek Philippe, from Vacheron Constantin to Audemars Piguet, we've got something for everyone. Enjoy!

Rolex Sky-Dweller

The epitome of Rolex is the watchmaker's most complicated timepiece, the infamous Sky-Dweller. Clad in solid Everose gold with a grey dial, the Sky-Dweller reference 326935 is as good as it gets.

Rolex GMT-Master II

Another Everose-gold clad Rolex and this time one of my all-time favourites is the GMT-Master II. By far one of the most hard-to-find Rolexes, the Everose gold GMT-Master II is also one of the maison's most beautiful.

Rolex Submariner

A solid gold Rolex is high up on almost everyone's wish-list, and there is probably none more iconic than the generational Submariner. With its lovely yellow gold case, matching gold bracelet and black dial, the reference 116618 is an undisputed legend.

Patek Philippe 5270/1R Perpetual Calendar Chronograph

From Patek Philippe we have the first of a few drool-worthy gold watches in the form of the solid gold 5270/1R Perpetual Calendar Chronograph. An image of affluence, exclusivity, luxury and moolah, the 5270/1R Perpetual Calendar Chronograph is an aesthetic and technical delight.

Patek Philippe 5990/1R Nautilus Travel Time

With its rose gold case, matching bracelet and distinct blue dial, the new Patek Philippe 5990/1R Nautilus Travel Time has quickly become on the year's most desirable gold watches, and for good reason.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tourbillon Openworked

Oh man. A tourbillon from Audemars Piguet in itself is incredible. An openworked extra-thin tourbillon encased in the Royal Oak aesthetic clad in solid gold is a whole other level. Supreme.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel

One of my all-time favourite watches, the solid rose gold Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked is one of the most beautiful openworked gold watches ever made. Well and truly worth its weight in gold.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar

Another solid gold watch, this time in the shape of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar. A lovely combination of rose gold, of blue, of complexity, of heft and of wearability, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar reference 26574OR is undeniable.

Vacheron Constantin Overseas Perpetual Calendar

Last but certainly not least is the pink gold Vacheron Constantin Overseas Perpetual Calendar. With its solid gold case and matching bracelet, the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Perpetual Calendar is a divine ode to modern watchmaking that is intertwined with the use of precious metals. Damn!
