The advantage of red gold in watches is far more than a little red in color.
I said plainly, there was no red, rose, or pink gold at all. Gold has only one color, and that is yellow. Gold can show a little red color, so red gold, rose gold and pink gold are just talking about the color of gold alloy. So whenever watch brands use red, rose, and pink gold to describe their cases, it’s nothing more than the color of the gold alloy they use.
Red gold (red gold, rose gold, and pink gold) is composed mainly of gold, silver, and copper. Changes in these three components determine the hardness of the alloy on the one hand, and the color of the alloy on the other. Simply put, the higher the copper content, the redder the alloy becomes. Even in 18k gold, although it looks golden, there are still two components, copper and silver.
If you really have to define these three colors, there are those who are obsessed and regretful, then you can say so. Red gold has the strongest color of pure copper; rose gold has a relatively low color temperature; pink gold is the least golden yellow alloy. However, there are not many people in the world who can accurately judge the color temperature, let alone ordinary consumers. Secondly, although the color reflected by the alloy is determined by its composition, its color rendering effect depends on the environment, which is difficult to distinguish with the naked eye. Even the nearby metal has an influence on the color development of red gold. Therefore, it is best not to pretend to be an expert to tell others the difference between red gold, rose gold and pink gold.
About 5 years ago, French independent watchmaker Juna has fully used red gold for most parts of the movement-‘I found that red gold is a very ideal material for the movement,’ said Juna, ‘Its indicators are very good in all aspects, and it is beautiful. The manufacturing cost is not important to me.’ At present, the mainstream movement material is brass, but it must be chrome-plated or rhodium-plated. Oxidation causes color degradation. It is conceivable that brass is an alloy of copper and tin (pure copper cannot be used because of insufficient hardness), while red gold is an alloy of gold, copper, and silver, which has higher nobility and physical properties than brass. Needless to say.
Van Cleef & Arpels
两个 Two dials show a year’s horoscope in the Paris night sky, which is as complicated as an annual calendar and full of fun. The two dials are relatively moving, and two sapphire lenses bear the astrological display.
Girard-Perregaux 1966 series
Girard Perregaux’s own calibre movement, classic white watch dial, tachymeter scale, two small chronograph dials at 3 and 9 o’clock, blue steel seconds hand, red gold hour scale nails, 4 mm, alligator leather watch band.
Baume & Mercier
打造 Made of gold or red gold: medium (39 mm) round case, mechanical movement, inlaid with Roman numerals, and black alligator leather strap. The slightly spherical case fits perfectly on the wrist. The dial is decorated with a guilloché line, and the traditionally decorated movement can be perfectly displayed through the transparent case back.
