Rolex with Diamond or without Diamond
Women and Diamond
Women just want to be noticed and admired. One of the easiest ways to do that is wear big old rocks that shine.
Diamond is commonly selected as for Wedding rings as Diamond is forever is the slogan. I believe Diamond is made for women, but how about men?
Men and DiamondMen and DiamondWe will almost never see a man wearing an inexpensive watch that has artificial diamond detailing. If he is wearing a watch with diamonds, it will likely be an expensive watch of a well-known brand such as Rolex, PP, VC, Cartier or AP. It takes a special character to wear the “iced out” versions with fully encrusted diamond cases that even sunglasses won’t protect you from their blinding effect.
Men and Diamond Watches
As men who have achieved a high level of social ladder and wealth will go about acquiring “the best” of everything including watches and everything else in life.
They can't wear a 5 carat Diamond with D-colour as that seems too feminine. However, they will equate “the best” of something with whichever is the most expensive and often with wristwatches. As the Wristwatch of 120 gram can have 1,500 diamonds on it. That is to say the lightest but most expensive accessory for the Rich man! With that Watch, the gold is nothing comparing with the Diamonds
Naturally, some of the most expensive top modesl of Rolex are those with diamonds. They show more discernible value to the general public as opposed to a 1 million dollar ‘Double Tourbillon grand complications’ which true watch connoisseurs will opt for over any diamond watch in a heartbeat.
Women tend to wear watches with diamonds more for the way they make them look, the aesthetics. Men wear watches with diamonds for the way they make them feel, which is all that really matters when you are picking the perfect watch for you.
When I can afford, I used to buy Rolex with diamond on the dial and f possible on the bezel. A Vintage Rolex with and without diamond can have more value for those with diamond as it was rare to have diamond on the dial say for example.
But it might be too shinny to have too many diamonds on the watch as the watch will be no longer called “watch”!
If I could afford, I don’t mind to have diamond on my GMT Master II, I don’t mind to have full diamond dial and bezel on my Day Date….
