Response to Anyone care to give an opinion on this colour of gold? >>
But it makes sense.
Esp. with the Everrose moniker
Copper is the element mixed to give pink gold its colour. However over time the alloy loses copper from the surface due to exposure to chlorine in water etc and begins to look more like yellow gold. Rolex created and patented its own alloy =everose, which uses platinum to bind the copper in the mix. Rolex claim the the color is permanent, forever =hence the name everose
