as the title says, are there any men with the Apple Watch in gold?

I have the iPhone 7 in gold but think the gold in watch is a bit feminine? Thoughts?

OH thinks it looks manly enough haha.

Cheers guys

Yes me! and the 38mm too. From today. My first Apple Watch.

I originaly liked the silver/white when it first came out but a while back at the Apple Store they brought out a selection to try and the gold with concrete band I thought looked really nice.

I never thought I would go for gold, its not really me, but for this I really like it. I tried the black on too a few days back before my purchase and was almost taken in by that. The gold though I think looks more like a watch than a sport or gadaget product. I think it goes well with a lot of straps too.

Although I'm not a man, I really like the AW in Gold but I have seen very few pics (if any) posted of that color on this board, which is interesting because I thought it would have been more popular...

I got the Series 1 in Brushed Gold aluminum with a great Black Friday sale from Target. It came with the cocoa band, and my wife said she wasn't too fond of the color combination. I bought this black leather band from Amazon for $20 and both me and my wife like the look much better. The stitching in the leather matches the gold nicely. The actual connector does NOT color match (it's silver), but that doesn't bother me. I'm sure some people would heavily cringe from it. Overall I think it looks more interesting than the plain black.

[doublepost=1482257587][/doublepost]ps -- it's interesting how Mickey looks pixelized in the picture, but perfect to the human eye. Here's the link to the band if anyone is interested. It's the black in 42mm. I have zero stake in the company or product, I just like it.

Want to sell your cocoa band by chance?

I have the S1 gold aluminum watch and like it a lot. It usually wear it with a black band - the Classic buckle, an x-Doria Milanese band, or the black sport band. My lady thinks it looks great and I agree.

Yeah exactly like a gold IPhone 7 Plus:mad::D
You must be on the wrong thread, because a Gold iPhone isn't relevant to an Apple Watch thread or assisting the OP in any matter. He was Asking specifics with the Gold Apple aluminum Apple Watch. And an Apple Watch is a wearable device, hence the iPhone is not comparable here.

Your question is off topic and isn't revelant to this specific Watch thread, as already noted previously. You can post your specific question on the listed iPhone forum link below for reference:

Sure, I'd get one. It won't bling as well as my gold-plated Rado does, and bracelets won't look good on it unless they were also gold (or at least two-tone). But why can't guys wear gold?

They make both gold and rose gold in 42mm sizes, so I don't think Apple intended them to be geared toward females only. Although rose gold is a little feminine looking, the regular gold isn't feminine looking at all.

The gold watch to me actually looks more premium than the silver, especially when you use bands with the gold adapters and buckles. Of course you have to get most of those third party. Monowear and Clockwork Synergy allow you to choose the colors. I have the silver and gold Monowear metal link one like the previous poster has it looks amazing.

Gold is easily favored by male or female. Rose gold, clearly was leaning towards the female preference. There is nothing wrong with a male sporting Rose Gold, but not in the brushed aluminum sense. High polished rose gold might be more catching. I actually considered Rose Gold for an iPhone this year. But not so For an Apple Watch.

I don't think it looks feminine - I have an iPad Mini 4 in Gold and, since my iPhone 7 is matte black went for the space grey Watch 2.

But gold is nice - I don't like the Rose Gold iPhone look as much.
