Now this was the kind of news we needed to kickstart 2022. We might still be waiting for R9 to be conceived but instead we’ve got a mini Ri x A$AP on the way and we couldn’t be happier. But admittedly, when every single photograph on Instagram became the epic duo walking down a street in Harlem in the snow, with Ri’s peeking stomach glimpsed through a vintage fuschia chanel puffer jacket and adorned with necklaces. With the world in exultation, we couldn’t help but peep the Rolex King Midas the Only Girl in the World decided to sport on her wrist to mark the special occasion. Created by the esteemed jeweler Patcharavipa Bodiratnangkura, the custom watch boasts an innovative self-winding movement and glass crystal from the ’70s, named after the King who turned everything he touched to gold – ironic parallel to Bad Gal Riri right there.

This girl is on fire with this RM watch. Marking the star’s 41st birthday this week, Alicia Keys went all out on a private jet to mark the occasion. Flexing the Richard Mille 07-01, the diamond set model represents the perfect mechanical synthesis between Haute Horlogerie elegance and the ‘tough love’ provided by new materials. An automatic winding timepiece boasts curvaceous lines of its tonneau shaped case design -the smallest of the collection- and its dial with a gemstone set center field. The heart of this timepiece centres on the in-house designed CRMA2 calibre, a highly skeletonised automatic movement developed specifically for the RM 07-01.WWith this unprecedented marriage of diamond and black case, the brand illustrates its indefatigable determination to develop its offerings for women who are as much fascinated by technicity as by beauty.

Price: $200,000

ANOTHER ONE. And no it’s not a song. It’s DJ Khaled showcasing yet another moment of haute horology in his collection. The ultimate testament to Jacob & Co’s unmatched watchmaking and gem-setting experience, know-how and singular position is the Billionaire II. In the world of high jewelry horological masterpieces, the Billionaire has opened a parallel universe on its own where it exists in perfect solitude, unrivaled and untouched. A grand total of 177.11 carats of 325 emerald-cut and baguette-cut diamonds make up the case and bracelet of the Billionaire, and as you can imagine, the price reflects just that. Here’s hoping he doesn’t scratch it.

When the entire watch world was lusting over the Patek x Tiffany Blue Nautilus that came out in December last year, the next question on everyone’s mind was who is going to own it? Fetching $6.5 million at auction, Jay-Z soon got his hands on it, naturally followed by LVMH’s CEO, Bernard Arnault. But then came the occupant that NO ONE saw coming. Mr Climate Change himself, Leonardo DiCaprio. You might not believe it through the facade, but hawk-eye detection saw the Wolf of Wall Street wearing the model at an LA Rams Vs 49Er’s Match. We see you Leo, and we live for it.

Price: $6,000,000
