Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is it allowed to wear the new Rolex Datejust 2 watch, model 116300-72210, which is made of stainless steel, but which has the hour markers with some white gold and also the hour/minute hands made of 18 ct white gold? The color of all this is steel .

A: It will be permissible to wear the Rolex wristwatch described above because a) the amount of gold is minimal; and b) the hand does not come into direct contact with the gold. Note that white gold is the same as yellow gold. The difference is only in the yellow content.
