    Rose Gold Royal Oaks seriously rock.

    Had not one but TWO chance encounters this month with Audemars Piguet Rose Gold Royal Oak. After learning awhile back that AP used to produce all watches in noble metals until the quartz crisis forced their hand to create the SS Royal Oak, I've been much more intrigued with the gold and rose gold APs.

    Spotted these out of the corner of my eye:
    39mm Rose Gold Black Dial @ work.
    37mm Rose Gold White Dial with Diamond Bezel @ a wedding.

    I always strike up a conversation and ask to put it on my wrist. These just aren't readily available at boutiques just because you have $40,000 burning a hole in your pocket if you don't spend it.

    Leave the stainless to Rolex, Omega, Tag...

    Man, call me a crank, but I would be very annoyed if someone approached me and asked to try on my $40,000 watch. Like, don't make me say "No, sorry". It's just rude. Be cool and maybe I'll offer.

    They do look cool in person but they are pretty over the top/tacky/make you look like a rapper.

    As I get older I am beginning to like solid gold watches more than in my youth. I'm not sure if this is a good sign or not?

    As for the AP RO - The opening photo provided by the OP supports most watch enthusiast's contention that they are a scratch/ding magnet. I don't know why people scratch them up so easily? I have a AP RO 15300 and I never seem to catch it?

    Love ROs but gold is not my cup of tea. As others have said, it screams "old guy!" and not in a good way...
    Well, I was standing on a corner in Winslow, AZ and Clara Oswald slowed down to take a look at me and my GS Tiffany SnowflakeTM...

    I like it. Maybe I’m just an old man now though (48yo)

    I guess it depends on the context right? If someone strikes up a great conversation and is a true WIS, why not?

    If someone random comes out of nowhere and asks to try it, that’s a different story.

    If we're in the sort of setting where watches are being taken off and passed around, like a Red Bar gathering or whatever, sure. But outside of that context, and regardless of the quality of conversation, I am very unlikely to hand you my watch upon request. I still maintain that it's rude to even ask. If I judge you to be trustworthy, I'll offer. But that's me.

    I like it too. Don't know why? As I got older, I started looking at rose gold watches.
    I swore during my 30s that I will never buy gold watches, but I guess taste do change as we age.
