I am kind of in love with rose gold watches, and my 15 year old watch just died on me, so I need a new one. Dragging around a sundial is turning out to be really inconvenient, not to mention useless indoors.
My only problem is that I like to buy things that last and that I won’t get tired of. When I was buying my sofa I debated whether I would still like its robin’s egg blue colour in ten years, and the salesman laughed at me for thinking I’d still have the sofa in a decade. Like, what, in his world people buy a new sofa every couple of years? Either the sofas he sells are really poor quality and fall apart in a few years, or his customers have a lot more money than I do.
ANYway, my point is that I’m afraid rose gold is just a fun little trend in metallics and will look horribly outdated in two years. People will gasp at my wrist and whisper: Good lord! That watch is so 2012!! Shun her and her backward ways!
So, I’m undecided and will probably just stick with a good old neon Swatch, because those things never go out of style, right?
