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. This week, diamonds certainly aren’t just a girls’ best friend. Take your pick!
Mesut Özil in Richard Mille
Off the pitch and at the dinner table, this week, German professional footballer, Mesut Özil ventured out for dinner with his wife, donning a sizeable timepiece on his wrist. Sporting the RM 029 Automatic Winding Le Mans Classic, a tribute to the return of the biennial event. As tribute to the 24-hour racing extravaganza – and if you haven’t seen the film, you can get in the spirit here – Richard Mille have issued an 8th iteration of the model, first launched in 2002, with a white and green Quartz TPT caseback, the signature colors of the event in a limited run of 150 pieces.
Chris Hemsworth in TAG Heuer
Commonly known for his acting prowess, Chris Hemsworth caught us all by surprise this year and we’re only 18 days in. Taking to his Instagram with a cooking video, promoting a “a true Aussie classic!!!” Hemsworth conjured up a Chicken Parmigiana dish with sweet potato fries. But we weren’t lusting over the food. In fact, we were staring right at the 42mm TAG Heuer Autavia Limited Edition Jack Heuer 85th Birthday Edition. Now that was a mouthful. A chronograph designed under Heuer’s leadership in 1962, the model, distinguishable for its unique bracelet, kept the old Hueuer and Autavia logos, but with a dial revamp, with sub counters in a panda configuration.
Gucci Mane in Jacob & Co.
We might have optimistically put an RM on our Christmas wish list (it seems Santa didn’t quite fit through the chimney) but Gucci Mane certainly owned Christmas 2021. Gifted a $1 million watch by his wife, Keyshia executed fine horological taste with a custom Bugatti Chiron watch by Jacob & Co. Rightly so, it seems the watch hasn’t left his hand since 25th December, boasting a replica of the Bugatti W16 engine, with pistons and turbochargers inside, totalling 120 hours to craft the model. “ 1 mill on the watch no cap 🥶 #ThisAintNoRichardMille 💰” shared Gucci Mane on the gram. We’re obsessed.
Cristiano Ronaldo in Franck Muller
Making headlines last year for his return to Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo added a few more trophies to his cabinet last night, scoring two more at The Best FIFA ceremony last night. Following his return, Ronaldo has amassed 14 goals in 21 games for Old Trafford. Joining five Premier League players named in the FIFPRO Men’s World 11 for 2021, he didn’t stop there, earning a special achievement award from the ceremony’s governing team. Arguably, that wasn’t the only trophy he was holding, with a Franck Muller Cintrée Curvex Tourbillon Sertissage watch on his wrist. It seems the longer the name, the more impressive the watch. Set with over 600 baguette cut diamonds, the Cintrée Curvex is the iconic shape of Franck Muller, with a curved case and unique contour.
