The Two-Tone Watch Is Back and Better Than Ever

Gold and silver watches are classic choices, but for those who want something more than silver but find solid gold too blingy, a timepiece that combines both tones is a versatile companion day in and day out. Variety comes in the differing use of gold accents, darker and lighter dials that offset the metals in different ways, and a wide range of complications that cater to whatever type of life you may live.

Dark Touch


Silver and rose gold tone dress watch ($190) by Guess.

A prominent black dial pops against the lighter metallics, providing a stylish juxtaposition that also makes for an easy to read display.

Simple and Clean


Stainless steel, 18K gold, silver dial with 3 diamonds watch ($3,860) by Tudor.

The most minimalist of the group, the fine lines of gold provide little hits of flash against the stark silver of the watch and the white dial.

Curve Appeal


CURV watch ($995) by Bulova.

If its name doesn’t give it away, this watch boasts a proprietary curved face which helps it sit flush and comfortably on your wrist.

Light Bright


Artix Date in stainless steel and 18K rose gold watch ($2,600) by Oris.

Smaller links in the bracelet construction provide extra depth and texture by creating a faceted appearance that catches the lights in unique ways.

Dialed In


Chronomat 44 GMT watch ($17,240) by Breitling.

The gold and silver construction surround the feature-rich dial of this world timer. You can easily switch between time zones and the 70 hour power reserve will outlast even the furthest long-haul flight.
