Ruling on wearing watches made of gold or imitation gold

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Can men wear gold plated watches ?.

Praise be to Allaah.

That is permissible for women, but for men it is not permissible if the watch is gold or gold-plated, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Gold and silk are permitted for the females of my ummah and forbidden for the males.” If it is imitation gold but is not really gold, it is still better for a man not to wear it, to protect his honour against accusations of going against the pure sharee’ah.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
