    I think the 750 gold refers to the thickness of the gold plate in microns, so the gold plating has been worn down to show the base metal it was played onto..

    No this is à réal 18k gold, i am not stupid and i dont like gold plate because of that



    The marks are ok the weight too.
    i know about gold And i buy this watch because this is a 18k gold case. All Jelewery said this is gold this only a little difference of color. And i see hold watch with rose color on yellow. In french law 18k gold it say 750/000 like 75per cent. Like 18/24 or 3/4 of gold

    750/1000 refers to 18K gold, but is at specific places that the YG turned to RG or everywhere? Can't really tell from the photos.

    I've seen some vintage WG watches that at worn out places the WG turned yellow, or it shows as if the base was yellow.

    Often I see description RG but in reality is looks YG. I have seen it with the Porto model from IWC and Speedmaster reduced, both are RG but they look YG to me.

    On the four "corne " and the lunette. We can see the color on thé fist picture but it's very Light and it look like rose gold. In reality i call tissot and see lot of jelewery and they say this gold 18k but they can't tell why. Maybe surface treatment or friction

    No, the case is 18K solid gold (one piece) but at places has turned into light pink gold.

    Yes i use no abrasif product because i am affraid to hard clean up. Tissot would like to polish my watch. i use lot of parfum and cream, and the back is very clean and yellow. Maybe the wear friction.can.dépose some superficial color make this coloration.

    This is not very dramatic but this.thé fist 18k that make this.

    Maybe this is a welding in rose gold of the différents pièce of the case and surface treatment after . (sorry m'y english is.very bad even i.am. Student on.Master. The French are bad in language sorry)

    I really doubt it, 750 markings are solid case, not 2 pieces etc. The gold is reacting to something, it's normal. I have seen white gold turn to yellow gold at places (just like you describe).

    I agree i think this is a little nuances due To my slim wearing style cause friction on the watch. Normally when there are plate gold erasing cause by parfum and other cream it is on the back on the jewel. On my watch the back is perfect yellow gold. Maybe, thé friction of the close can turn the yellow to pink yellow. It is bad because we know how many gold we have when we buy a watch and the purety. But we don't know anything about the others métals in thé alloy and the process of production and the eventual surface treatment... I would like To know how m'y watch was made but i can dreaming

    Perfume is a killer for watches, the alcohol base can easily enter the movement via the crown. I've seen no end of women's watches with gunge in the movements due to their habit of spraying perfume on their wrists whilst wearing their watch.
