Brooklyn Beckham in Patek Philippe
Like father, like son. In a recent celebration in California, the Beckham clan grouped together to celebrate the birthday of Brooklyn’s fiancé, Nicola Peltz. In a signature Instagram photo dump, VB shared a photo of her son with a Patek Philippe Nautilus in 5711/1R. Renowned for its infamous octagonal shape of its bezel, the ingenious porthole construction of its case, and its horizontally embossed dial, the Nautilus has epitomized the elegant sports watch since 1976.
Floyd Mayweather in Jacob & Co.
If you’re looking for a spellbinding watch collection to gawp over, then look no further than the American professional boxer, Floyd Mayweather’s. From Patek, to Hublot to the iced out Jacob & Co. Billionaire Watch, Mayweather flexed another Jacob & Co. model on his Instagram this week with an exclusive Rainbow Tourbillon Baguette. Set with a staggering 416 diamonds, 294 in the 18k white gold case, and 204 baguette-cut diamonds on the dial, Mayweather’s model is the epitome of luxe watchmaking, and then some.
Drake in Richard Mille
“I’m always going to work like I have something to prove,” Drake once motioned. And there’s proof in the pudding here that Drake is a watch aficionado. Sporting a Richard Mille watch, Champagne Papi dons an FQ tribute, the RM 11-03 Automatic Winding Flyback Chronograph McLaren. McLaren Automotive’s creations aim to incorporate a maximum of Formula 1 technologies and developments in their racing and touring cars; tourbillon watches are for Richard Mille what Formula 1 vehicles are for McLaren, a technical crucible from which to extract innovations that can be adapted across the collections. Richard Mille and McLaren Automotive released their first jointly-commissioned timepiece, the RM 11-03 Automatic Flyback Chronograph McLaren, at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. Limited to 500 pieces worldwide, McLaren customers have the opportunity to match their edition number of 1 to 500 of their McLaren Ultimate Series to the caseback number of their RM 11-03 McLaren.
Price: You’ll have to ask Drizzy.
Stanley Tucci in Victorinox
The legend of the Swiss Army Knife came about in 1884 when Karl Elsener opened a cutlers workshop in Switzerland, with the pioneering idea of manufacturing a compact knife with multiple functions, before evolving into the heritage of his country: watches. Despite his infamous role as Nigel in The Devil Wears Prada, immersed in a world of labels, Tucci opts for a more discreet personal preference when it comes to his wrists. Victorinox watches are very reasonably priced Swiss-made timepieces, only $350–$550, compared to the thousands Swiss watches can often cost, and made with its own movements. Pictured wearing an AirBoss, historically the countdown commander of an aircraft carrier who determined take-off and landing times, the model is bold in its simplicity, proving that modesty always prevails.
