    Poll - Which Rose Gold watch should I get?

    I'm torn between these two watches and I really cannot decide. The Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic and the Orient Star Retrograde. Both rose gold with brown strap. I want them both but I can only afford one. I want something I can use as an every day office and smart-casual watch. I already have a Tissot Visodate (black strap) and a Seiko 007 jubilee. I welcome your recommendation on which I should go for!

    Hamilton

    Ultimately I'd choose the Orient to add some diversity, dial color, and complications to your collection. The Hamilton is very similar to the Visodate minus the color. That said, I hope you really like rose gold, because if there's such thing as "too much rose gold" the Orient might have it.
    I'll also add that most would consider the Orient less dressy (but more versatile) than the Hamilton.

    I really like that Orient and it gives you a different look from the Tissot, but both are very nice.

    Hamilton. I have that Hamilton but in SS, and I really like it. I have some more expensive watches, but I find that I really enjoy wearing the Hamilton still quite a bit

    I like the Orient because of the complications too..

    As someone who disdains gold, I would say neither. But since my wrist isn't the one to wear it, I go for the Hamilton. Just a more-harmonious design overall than the nice Orient Star.

    If you are using it for a work watch I would go with the Hamilton - too much stuff going on with the Orient dial.

    Thanks for the advise all. It take onboard some are saying the Hamilton is more clean & formal but the orient is more versatile. Seems to be 50/50 on the poll so far. No clear winner!

    Usually it's a case of "give a Sticky an Orient and he's happy" but to my eyes the Star looks a bit busy in gold whereas the Hammy looks just scrumptious.
