The rarest, wildest and most covetable watches are likely to be spotted on our favorite celebrities’ wrists. Commonly, celebrities set the trend on what’s hot and what’s not, and admit it or not, we are all a sucker for this marketing trend that if an item is seen on a celebrity, people would most likely want to have it for themselves. For reasons such as having the prestige of a celebrity or just having the most covetable accessory, watches make the perfect finishing touch to any ensemble. Elegant watches have largely fallen out of favor as dress codes have eased and men have turned to steel timepieces as their every day and evening companions. Whether you opt for a classic stainless or the ones with leather watches as seen on celebrities will always be iconic.
ROLEX ON ANTHONY DAVIS
Probably the most fun Rolex on the planet, the Rolex Rainbow watch is the kind of watch you wear when you’re at your career’s height or just standing tall, like one of Los Angeles Lakers star players, Anthony Davis. The celebratory watch is covered in 36 baguette-cut diamonds, more diamonds stand-in for hour markers and there are yet more gems along the lugs. Not to mention that the diamonds across the bezel create a rainbow effect. Be an MVP on your own, like Anthony Davis, who can get away with wearing something loud and rare–because why not.
CARTIER ON HENRY GOULDING
For Henry Goulding, the Crazy Rich Asian actor only buys classic watches. Often spotted wearing the Patek Philippe 5711 Nautilus, an IWC Portugieser and now, a Cartier Tank which has been a long-time favorite of most celebrities over time. Most celebrities wear a watch just because it is the watch to wear during that time, and not necessarily to tell the time, and Henry Goulding proves that it’s still a celebrity thing in 2019.
CHOPARD ON RYAN REYNOLDS
Chopard’s take on the GMT watch, designed to track two different time zones, is seen fashioned by Ryan Reynolds, both personally and in character for his latest movie, 6 Underground. Chopard ingeniously uses different shades of chocolate brown and creamy white on the actual face of the watch to create a contrast between time zones.
PIAGET ON TOM HOLLAND
The 23-year-old actor is a watch collector who owns brands like Patek Philippe Aquanaut, Cartier, and a Rolex Daytona. Adding to this vast and luxurious collection is the Piaget Altiplano 910P, as seen on him wearing both out and about and also during the filming of his latest movie. This thin automatic watch ups the cool factor with a skeletonized dial that reveals all the gadgetry inside.
PATEK PHILIPPE ON TRAVIS SCOTT
Probably made just for Travis Scott, Patek Philippe makes just a few of their World Time watches especially in this white-gold version. The globe on the dial of each watch is hand-enameled in tiny, exact detail. Patek Philippe says that these miniature paintings can take up to several months to create, sometimes using a brush as fine as a single hair.
