This is WHO WORE WHAT, a series spotlighting the hottest wrists of the week, documenting the classic, the chic, the weird and the wonderful watches over the past seven days.
What is it about celebrities that makes us want to stop and stare and see what they’re wearing? Either way, we’re happy to oblige and gawk in awe, amaze and shock(!) at their wrists to see exactly who is wearing what. Kickstarting 2022 with Who Wore What, lust over the hautest watches on celebrity wrists right now, from Rolex to Audemars Piguet. Take your pick!
Tom Holland in Rolex
It’s shaping up to be quite the year for Spiderman’s very own, Tom Holland. Riding hot on the dials of Marvel’s success – if you haven’t seen it, why haven’t you seen it? – the 25-year-old British actor is out in the public eye once more, promoting the new action film Uncharted, starring alongside Mark Wahlberg. Amongst the promotion, Holland was spotted with a 41mm Rolex Submariner with a dark green bezel and black dial. Updating its Submariner range back in 2020 with new movements and refinements, the model, otherwise known as the ‘Starbucks’ Rolex features an 120-click uni-directional bezel and 300 metres of waterproofness. Best not to spill your Caramel Cream Frappucino on it though.
Kevin Hart in Audemars Piguet
Whether you love him or hate him, Kevin Hart proves he’s got taste when it comes to his wrists. “Just a kid from Philly…#LiveLoveLaugh #ComedicRockStarShit” shared the comedian on his Instagram this week, sporting a Royal Oak “Jumbo Extra-Thin watch in platinum with a standout green sunburst dial for contrast. Coming in haute at a svelte 8.1mm thin, the rare iteration, produced in low quantities marks a return for the watch house, who premiered their first platinum watch during the millennium year, to mark the brands 125th anniversary.
Quavo in Rolex
This Rolex Sky Dweller isn’t Quavo’s first rollie rodeo. In fact, he’s fairly seasoned by now. But he can’t seem to get enough of the Rolex Sky Dweller. Released back in the pre-pandemic halcyon days of 2012, and considered the watch to have amongst frequent travellers, the Sky Dweller displays two time zones simultaneously. The reference time, in 24-hour format, is shown via an off-centre disc, and the local time is read using conventional centre hands, while the months of the year are indicated in 12 apertures around the circumference of the dial, with the current month marked in red. The instantaneous date change is linked to the local time. Pretty impressive, right?
Kylian Mbappé in Hublot
In a world of #ad, #gifted and #affiliatelinks, it’s nice to know that even if you’re a brand ambassador, you actually wear it in day to day life. On the side of a different pitch this week, Mbappé took to Instagram to mark the fellow footballer, Neymar’s birthday with a watch shot in honourable ode to Hublot. Sporting the Big Bang Sang Bleu II Titanium Pavé, As an ambassador, Maxime Plescia-Büchi (aka Sang Bleu) perfectly incarnates Hublot’s willingness to merge the arts and bring together fundamentally contrasting world.
Zendaya in Cartier
We can’t stop talking/thinking/counting down the hours until the next episode of Euphoria. Taking the internet by storm for its second season – and yes, we have so many unanswered questions about Rue and Jules – but keeping us sane until next week’s offering of teen chaos, were the BTS pictures of the cast, featuring Zendaya’s Cartier Panthère. The designs draw from the grace of the stealth-like panther and have been inspired by the elegant Cartier Panthère jewellery collection over the years and takes it name from Louis Cartier’s friend, Jeanne Toussain.
