Would the gold and antique white combo suit a man?

    I've been looking at Apple Watches over the past couple of days and I really do love the combo of these two, but I'm unsure it would look too feminine on a man.

    I know watches can be very flashy and don't always have to be dark colours but at the same time I don't want it too look stupid on me.

    What are people thoughts?

    Just as a quick side question, people who have light coloured sport bands. Has anyone had issues with them staining or discolouring?

    Thanks.

    If you like it, get it. Who cares what someone else thinks? It's your watch and your money!

    Is he the kind of man who'd wear gold and cream? It's a very circular question.

    If it fits in with your wardrobe and stuff, who cares. It's what you like.

    Buy and wear whatever watch you like. And no, no issues with light colored bands.

    If you like it, then buy it. I don't know what it is with people and their fear of what other people will think if they have a gold or rose gold Apple product.

    I feel sorry for people who have to live their lives according to the approval of others.

    One of Jony Ive's AWs is the gold Edition with white sport band. The gold and antique white AW Sport is simply the aluminum version of it (although it's yellow gold instead of rose gold).

    If you have to ask, you do not have enough confident to wear it, enjoy other thing in your own life, and don't care about other people's feeling on anything on your own body. Because if you ask us how we feel now, there is no guarantee when other people feel it is not suit for man, would you not feel discomfort at same time.
    Hope this is not too deep... :)

    Lets take this one step further beyond just a gold and creme watch. Feel free to not answer, but ill pose the question. Are you only wanting to buy the watch because Apple products are a status or are you genuinely wanting an apple watch for what it does? Or both? Cause to me if you want a watch, its because you want it. If your wanting to buy it for a color and how it "may" look..that brings up another bout of questions

    If you look like Ryan Gosling did doesn't matter what one you wear. ;)

    Another answer on the mounting pile, but, yeah, wear whatever you like. Don't worry about "too feminine" a watch has no magical power to change your gender.

    If you're still genuinely curious about how it would look on you: find a woman (more generally, a person of the opposite gender) that fits these criteria: a) whom you think comsistently dresses stylishly, b) whose opinions you trust, and c) whom you trust to tell you the truth. This can be a relative, SO, coworker, SO of a friend, etc. (if you have a friend who has a hot girlfriend who always looks perfectly dressed/accessorized, perhaps that is who to ask). Ask them for their truthful opinion of how they think it would look on you, show them pictures of the watch/band combo in question (if it genuinely seems like fun to both of you, take them with you to an Apple Store to try it on). Don't just ask them while passing each other in the hallway, it has to be a situation where you can have at least a few completely unrushed minutes to discuss it. Then, trust their opinion.

    There are people who will think any Apple Watch will look stupid on you. Gotta get what you want. I'm a guy, and I already have one, but I am considering buying an Apple Watch Gold or Rose Gold aluminum, because I like the colors.

    Judging from the size of the watch, James Bond was actually a munchkin.

    It's not a combo I would wear but I couldn't get away with wearing a stud in my ear, lizard skin boots, or driving a corvette either. If your persona allows it wear it. Best to ask a friend if its going to make you look like a damned fool. None of us knows you.

    I could have tried yesterday. Met someone who wore this combo. Looked good on her (older woman in her late 60's, at least) but I think I could get away with it, too (white guy, mid-40's).

    That's the beauty of the Apple Watch. Buy that combo, and get yourself a black sports band. Thereby, if you want to wear white one day, go for it. You want to wear black one day, go for it :). Super easy to swap bands.

    I have a Milanese which came with mine, and a blue sports band. I almost never wear the blue sports band.
