It is worth noting that a yellow-gold watch should be professionally polished sparingly, as each refurbishment removes a small layer of yellow gold from the watch.
A solid yellow gold watch is generally more expensive than a gold-plated watch, but there are some other key differences. A yellow gold watch will be heavier than a comparable gold-plated watch because gold has more heft than the base metal. A yellow gold watch is also more durable against abrasions, so it will stay looking great for longer than a gold-plated watch.
The term two-tone gold is often mistakenly used in place of bi-metal watches, which refer to an amalgamation of precious metals with stainless steel.
About Yellow Gold Watches
Most commonly used to craft the case of a timepiece, yellow gold was by far the most popular material used until the beginning of the 12th century. Today, owning a yellow gold timepiece is a true symbol of success, used by many luxury watch brands across their collections.
Yellow gold is naturally brighter than other gold colours such as white or rose, meaning yellow gold watches stand out from the crowd and are sure to be noticed. The difference between yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold is the metal used to create the alloy. White gold is commonly alloyed with zinc, nickel, or palladium, giving it a silky, silver-like finish, while yellow gold is a combination of gold and copper. Nickel and palladium have a bleaching effect on gold, so more of them can be added to balance out the reddening effect of copper or lessened for a rose gold finish.
Owing to its natural softness, 24ct or pure gold is alloyed with other base metals to change its hardness, durability as well as appearance. Gold with lower carat ratings, such as 14ct or 9ct, includes higher ratios of base metals such as silver, palladium, nickel or zinc in their alloy. The higher the carat gold means that the higher the gold content is however this also means the less robust the metal. As a result, the world’s leading watchmakers tend to use 18ct yellow gold to craft cases and bracelets, the perfect blend of durability and value.
