A Watch-Lover’s Guide to Mixing Metals


Date June 8, 2021

Gone are the days of having to choose between gold, silver or rose-gold jewellery, and committing to wearing it from head-to-toe. The rising trend of mixing metals has thrown away all the rules when it comes to accessorizing, letting you mix and match to your heart’s content. 

Mixing metals strikes the perfect balance between cool and warm tones, and classic and modern. It also checks off multiple boxes at once, letting you show off your personal style and layer your favourite pieces together. A two-tone accessory, like a combination watch, is an easy and elegant way to dabble in the trend with minimal fuss.

Ceci ($695)

This elegant timepiece is all about easy sophistication with its mesh bracelet, diamond-decorated dial and rich cobalt blue accent on the crown. It’s the kind that works just as well with a crisp white shirt as it does with a summer dress.

Crystals decorate the bezel and dial on this eye-catching two-tone watch, but it’s not all style and no substance. The analog timepiece also lets you keep track of the day, date and has 12/24-hour time.

This wear-anywhere watch shows off a sleek gold, stainless steel case and bracelet. Meanwhile, the eye-catching diamonds on the dial let you easily dress it up or down.

Finding the perfect balance between simplicity and complexity, this rose gold-tone watch not only shows the month, day and date, but also keeps track of the phases of the moon.
