Folks, I am looking at a Rose Gold plated Alpina. Since rose (red, pink) gold is popular and since I cannot afford a solid gold watch, what is the story of plating? I have had great success with PVD black etc., but one review on a watch said it is poor choice as it will/can/may wear off. Which is fine I guess eventually if the stainless is polished and can be cleaned up.
However I had a 67 Breiting Navigator that was gold plated and still perfect. What is the truth on this plating that is popping up on watches everywhere these day?
Am I safe? I am not looking at a tool watch but more of a dress watch but do not want to have to worry.
Thanks in advance!
