1.2 I think they do. See my answer for #2.
1.3 Gold on a sports watch automatically launches/dumps it into "bling" territory, IMO.
2. "Fake" all the way, IMO. You get the style but without the long-term durability. If you want a watch that ages quickly, get one that's plated.
3. Doubt any do, and I don't know why. Maybe 14k isn't hypoallergenic enough to be worth the price tag? Or maybe just an image associated with the number.
4. Ya know, I might. I don't always like the color of gold as it's obvious from a distance, but I like to think that white gold will last for a hundred years. If I wanted to get a watch that I intended to hand down in the future, white gold would be a candidate if I could easily afford it.
5. Not sure. I'd want it to have service support a long time from now, and if the brand is too small, I may not bother.
All that said, there's a two-tone configuration that I kinda like -- steel case, light-colored dial, with gold markers and hands. Many manufacturers have some models like that.
I'd like to try this:
And something like this:
Am the only person in the history of the world to like these:
Plus I'm a fan of them:
So the answer is "yes" and "it depends"...
The former is the Steelers ridiculous bumblebee throwbacks and the latter looks like the ugliest eel in the ocean.

3 - please look at RDenney's explanation above. It seems to be an accurate assessment.
4 - great point!
Just realized that I've owned a handful of colored gold watches over time but they've all moved on. Guess my preferred metal color is white.
#4 Many times no choice. Would always take stainless over white gold from a cost/price perspective . . .
#5 If I like the look and can afford to have it, wouldn't care much who manufactures the watch or watches . . .
