I apologize for being unclear. Your assumptions are quite correct, to my opinion. What feels a bit ridiculous to me is buying a gold watch in the first place, because it's heavy and quite "in-your-face-look-at-my-diamond-tooth-punk". It is, however, a very personal opinion. I'd go titanium over gold any day of the week, if I have to spend a lot of money, because it is light, durable, and very hard, all things gold isn't.
