I own two Eco-Drive watches precisely because they combine rose gold, navy and brown as I wear a lot of dark indigo and navy. The job of the watch is more to disappear than stand out. And as to fashion - when you're over 70 there isn't much you can do.
There is an elegance with a leather banded watch.

I succumbed to another watch from Resultco, the Reign Bauer with Seiko nh38 movement, $165 at The Bay. It turns out my fears were unfounded as not only does it like my winder, it runs +1 to +5 seconds per day - which is really good! I bought the rose gold/black dial/brown strap.
