From Cartier to Rolex, luxury watches have always been a staple of celebrity fashion, be it as statement pieces to make them stand out, or for their glamorous elegance bringing along an aura of class and sophistication. Often, Hollywood actors, singers, and socialites become brand ambassadors of luxury watch brands, and their endorsement does tend to drive sales of the watches they sport on their wrists. Let’s have a look at the top five most popular watches worn by celebrities.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day Date
A real status symbol, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date is also nicknamed “the Presidents’ Watch” and was a favorite of Lyndon Johnson. The Day-Date, launched in 1956 and made from 18k gold, is the world’s first waterproof chronograph watch. Most recently, it has been worn by Justin Timberlake nearly everywhere he goes. Other celebrities seen wearing a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day Dates include Warren Buffet, LeBron James, and Victoria Beckham.
Cartier Ballon Bleu
With Cartier’s longstanding relationships among royalty, this is a choice preferred by nobility and those who aspire to stand among their ranks. Once described as “the jeweler of kings and the king of jewelers” by King Edward VII, Cartier is a leader in timepiece elegance. Bearing a clean look and classy curves, as well as the tasteful blue accent, this modern classic still adorns British royalty and even Hollywood actresses to this day. Kate Middleton has been seen wearing a Ballon Bleu, as well as Kylie Jenner, Bonnie Hammer and Sofa Vergara.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak
Classy yet casual, made in stainless steel, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak has become extremely popular especially among Hollywood celebrities. James Corden has brought new prominence to the Selfwinding variety, wearing the watch in his videos and shows, but the Quartz version is also very popular for those who desire the style without the hassle. Other fans of Audemars Piguet include Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Ellen DeGeneres, Kevin Hart and Denzel Washington.
They say scarcity drives up demand, and with the long wait time needed to purchase a Rolex Daytona, of course, this watch would be popular among celebrities. Originally designed to meet the needs of professional racecar drivers in 1963, many celebrities have also picked it up, including Miley Cyrus, Jason Bateman, John Mayer and Leonardo Dicaprio.
While IWC is a favorite with many celebrities, its Portofino design stands out as a classic addition to any watch collection. Sporting clean lines and a simplistic design, the IWC embodies elegance in an understated fashion. Celebrities spotted wearing an IWC Portofino include Emily Ratajkowski and Kate Mara.
