Baselworld 2015 trends #3: rose gold variations for Rolex, Patek Philippe, Chanel and Blancpain
The rose gold is still a main trend in watchmaking. Two brands dedicated t very appreciated pieces to the rose gold lovers.
Patek Philippe extends the Nautilus collection working on its most requested reference, the 5711, introduced in a new rose gold version with a deep chocolate dial.
Rolex also uses the rose gold to innovate within the Professional watches collection: a new black and 18 ct Everose gold version of its nautical Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master has been introduced, with a black Cerachrom bezel contrasting with the gold: the raised numerals and graduations with a highly polished finish stand out clearly against a matt background. The watch is fitted with the innovative Oysterflex bracelet developed and patented by Rolex. This technical bracelet combines in a singular way the robustness and reliability of a metal bracelet with the flexibility, comfort and aesthetics of an elastomer strap. At its core lies a superelastic metal blade overmoulded with high-performance black elastomer. The new Yacht‑Master is offered in two sizes: 40 mm and a new 37 mm diameter.
Chanel chooses a unique tone for its rose gold: the so-called beige-gold, patented by Chanel, is a light-coloured yet very elegant gold, perfect on the new Première soirée.
Blancpain includes the rose gold version for the new Villeret 6669-3642-55B, Grande Date, seconde, cadran opalin , automatique, where the new caliber 6950 beats indicating the date with a big window on the dial, showing two numbers printed on two different disks.
