Hello All,

Why is it that Rolex does not make the TT SS/18kt white gold like the yellow and rose gold counterparts whre the beze/middle brazelet link and crown are made of gold. On the stainless and white gold only the bezel is white gold the rest(Brazelet,crown) are SS???:confused1:

Good question. I don't know the answer, but I will say you're the first person I've seen ask this question in all my years of reading watch forums.

That is interesting. I'd think that the issue would be cost/impact --- or better stated, the white gold wouldn't add sufficiently to the look enough to justify the cost. If it all looks like SS, then why use gold?

This makes sense to me, but the logic doesn't hold as Rolex often makes SS watches where the bezel is puzzling made of white gold. Why add to the cost with no change in appearance (or only the most subtle of changes)? Only Rolex knows.
