    Is this watch outdated or out of fashion ?

    Hi !

    I'm new to this forum and know absolutely nothing about watches but I wanted to get your advice on something. I'm a twenty year old guy and someone gave this watch to me five years ago (the watch is 5 years old).

    It's a HAAS and CIE swiss made watch. This company HAAS&CIE - Swiss Watchmakers Since 1848

    Someone told me recently that because it is a gold color it is out of fashion especially for a young guy like me. I think it seems like a decent watch to wear on a suit or formal outfit though.

    What your take ?

    You're clearly unsure of the watch so why not just get a more traditional all steel one?

    silver lining:

    It doesn't look as dated as an 80's Rado Diastar

    Furthermore, yellow gold has been out of style for young people since at least the early/mid 90's... I'm guessing in another decade or so, yellow gold will make a comeback for young people, as trends move in cycles (although by this time you will be thirty). Rose gold seems to certainly be edging its way back into the mainstream lately.

    Yellow gold tends to be out of fashion in the west unless you're a gangster. However in the East it is still popular. It is a whole cultural thing to covet gold, especially yellow gold. If you like it then wear it. But if you're 20, be prepared for a lot of people to think you're overreaching or posing as most 20 year olds cannot afford gold. If you don't mind that then go on ahead.

    Look at people like Justin Bieber (eww) and it's clear that they're trying to make yellow gold fashionable again. Trying.

    I'd say it's easier to pull off for a 20 year old than a 40 year old like me. If I tried to wear yellow gold, I might as well get some parachute pants and hypercolor shirts to go with it...
    Choose a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life because that field isn't hiring.

    There are two kinds of people in this world: those who follow fashion trends, and those who don't give a s*** and wear what they like. Which one are you? That'll be your answer.
