Gold. It’s the original precious metal – with a lustre that has shone unabated for millennia. Gold is the universal symbol of success, power, status and, obviously, wealth. These markers, while making it such a desirable material, can also make it tricky to wear, especially if you’d rather not look like a Boxster-driving-try-hard. On top of that there’s the question of which gold? Is red the same as pink? And is yellow gold old-fashioned? Won’t people think my white gold watch is just steel? All this makes wearing a gold watch something of a sartorial minefield. So rather than risk committing a capital crime against fashion we thought it safest to ask the advice of Oscar Hunt’s own Chris Edwards, with some help from the Cartier Drive.
