7 Watches That Stood Out At the 2023 Golden Globes

January 19th, 2023

There was a lot to watch at this year’s first award ceremony, the 80th Golden Globes. While big names like Jennifer Coolidge, Colin Farrell and Austin Butler took home some worthy awards, the night was rightfully claimed by what the stars were wearing on their wrists!

7 Watches That Stood Out At the 2023

The Golden Globes 2023 was a watch connoisseur’s paradise. Celebrities like Andrew Garfield, Eddie Redmayne, Jay Ellis and Sebastian Stan sported some of the most standout timepieces in style.

Here’s a bunch of the best watches from the big night.

7 Impressive Watches That Stole the Show on 11th Jan 2023

1. Tag Heuer Carrera Date – Sebastian Stan

Nominated for the Best Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made For TV, Sebastian Stan walked the carpet wearing a modern and neat black tuxedo. However, the watch peeping under the velvet sleeves surpassed this hot look to gain notice. He was wearing a marvellous Tag Heuer underneath.

Crediting to its racecar-driving past, the Tag Heuer Carrera Date has the soul of a sports watch, and when paired with the velvet tuxedo, it won the red carpet and millions of hearts. The watch finely complimented his appearance and is definitely one of our favourites from the night.

2. Cartier Tank Americaine – Jay Ellis

There were many great menswear looks from this year’s Golden Globes Awards. Another man to make it to our top list is Jay Ellis. The Maverick star looked sharp in a tailored black suede jacket and matching trousers, lending a classic red carpet appearance. Adding a bit more shine and sophistication was the Cartier Tank Americaine on his wrist that proved classics are always a sure-shot way to turn heads on any major event.

The Cartier Tank Americaine has a well-built and sleek frame inspired by the new Renault tanks. When you’re wearing something as indisputable as this Cartier masterpiece, there’s absolutely nothing that could go wrong.

3. Omega DeVille Prestige – Ke Huy Quan

Best known for his childhood roles in Indiana Jones and The Goonies, Ke Huy Quan made a strong impression past year with his critically acclaimed role in Everywhere Everything All at Once. The actor took home the award for Best Supporting Actor. But what caught the attention was his small but mighty timepiece.

Omega DeVille Prestige – Ke Huy Quan

Quan chose to wear an Omega DeVille Prestige timepiece with his tuxedo, proving that big things do come in small packages. The stainless steel and 18ct yellow gold case of this relatively small 34mm watch gave some notable flashes on his wrist as the actor celebrated his career’s biggest win that night.

4. Vacheron Constantin Patrimony – Jeremy Allen White

Jeremy Allen White’s critically acclaimed role in The Bear has earned him a Golden Globe honour. In the movie, Jeremy portrayed a chef returning home to run his family-owned sandwich shop. The thing that gained the actor smooth approval from his fans and also from us is the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony in rose gold.

The 40mm timepiece draws inspiration from a 1957 Vacheron Constantin watch and has a round, ultra-thin case. Not to mention, it is what many watch fans dream of. The piece looked particularly chic and elegant on ‘The Bear’ star wearing a Dior tux.

5. Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra – Andrew Garfield

Everyone is talking about him, and why not? Andrew Garfield was hands-down one of the best-dressed men at the Golden Globes 2023. Everything about him was a show-stopper, whether it was his charming orange Zegna suit or his decision to match it with the dial of his Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra. His energy in the terracotta suit with a black shirt and tieless tie was lethal.

However, it was the Omega wristwatch that accentuated his look tenfold. The 38mm Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Co-Axial timepiece has a robust stainless steel case and bracelet, and the saffron dial beautifully coordinates his attire. The stunning Spider-Man actor definitely knows how to dress like a stunner.

6. Omega DeVille Tresor – Eddie Redmayne

Eddie Redmayne never disappoints when making stylish appearances on the red carpet. The actor gracefully joined the best-dressed men list as he sported a fantastic flower on his tuxedo suit. The Fantastic Beasts actor is a known Omega ambassador, so it’s only expected of him to pick a stunning Omega for the event.

Omega DeVille Tresor – Eddie Redmayne

He wore a 40mm Omega DeVille Tresor Co-Axial Chronometer on his wrist that we just couldn’t ignore. The rose gold case against the dark blue dial offers a rich and nice contrast, resulting in a ‘modern-meets-vintage’ fit.

7. Omega Speedmaster ’57 – Barry Keoghan

Another man who made it visible that he was having the best night of his life was Barry Keoghan. Even though the actor did not win the Best Supporting Actor award, his baby blue LV suit and an Omega Speedmaster ’57 watch with a blue dial featuring ‘Broad Arrow’ hands gained him all the praise and attention.

The Irish actor certainly knows how to dress like a winner. We must acknowledge that the ‘Eternals’ actor’s stylist did a great job matching his icy eyes to the colour of his outfit and the blue dial Omega timepiece, making him stand out even more!

CONCLUSION

And that’s a wrap to the 2023 Golden Globes’ most talked-about wristwatches. The red carpet just revealed how diverse it could be in terms of its horology offerings-both in style and colour. If you haven’t checked it already, it’s time you do.

Watches of the British Royal Family: Omega, Cartier, Rolex & More!

September 13th, 2022

There is a certain enigma around the British Royal family, reminding us of prestige, power and wealth. As the Royal family is always in the spotlight, the media follows them everywhere, from what they’re wearing to where they’re heading. We know that the blue blood dress to perfection, and like their sartorial choices, they pay great attention to their timepieces.

Given the watches the Royalties wear on numerous occasions, it is safe to assume they’re passionate watch collectors. From Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin, and Omega to Cartier and Breguet, many iconic watch brands have graced the wrists of the affluent.

Watches of the British Royal Family

So, who’s wearing what? From Duke & Duchess of Cambridge to Duke & Duchess of Sussex to Prince Charles and the Queen herself, let’s take a closer look at some of the most iconic timepieces the Royalties love to wear.

WATCHES OF THE ROYALS

1. Queen Elizabeth II

The Queen is quite a watch aficionado known to collect elegant and feminine timepieces. As per some reports, she has at least 14 most sought-after watches in her collection that she has famously worn on multiple occasions. One of the most memorable instances was during The Queen’s Coronation in 1953, where she was wearing the Jaeger LeCoultre 101. With all eyes glued on her, the Queen could subtly check the time while maintaining the etiquette, thanks to the watch’s smallest watch movement.

In celebration of her diamond jubilee, former CEO of JLC, Jerome Lambert, gifted her with a stunning white gold version of the Calibre 101. The watch is bejewelled with precious stones and continues to be one of the smallest and oldest movements in production today, though in small quantities. When it comes to watches, The Queen has unbeatable taste, which reflects her Royal stardom.

Other watches in The Queen’s collection include:

  • Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars
  • Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse
  • Contemporary Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101
  • Patek Philippe 4975/1G
  • Vacheron Constantin
  • Omega Ladymatic
  • Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso

2. Prince Charles

Following Her Majesty’s footsteps, Prince Charles is also a passionate watch collector who sticks to the classics. He likes his Jaeger-LeCoultre, Cartier and Patek Philippe but also prefers Parmigiani, Hamilton, and Breguet. As you can think, Parmigiani is quite the sapling in respect to the other influential Swiss manufacturers. However, its rare Fleurier Toric with a gold case and classy black leather strap has been Prince Charle’s absolute favourite for many years.

Most recently, he wore the Toric with a well-tailored grey suit at the Royal Ascot, an annual high-society horse racing event. The classic yellow gold watch in 39mm is appropriately majestic, which the Prince discreetly tucks underneath his cuff.

In the 1980s, Charles switched between the JLC Reverso and Cartier Santos and during his training as a jet pilot and in the 70s; he wore a Hamilton RAF Pilot’s Chronograph.

Other watches in Prince Charles’ collection include:

  • Patek Philippe 3445 Calatrava
  • Patek Philippe Disco Volante 255
  • Patek Philippe 2503

3. Princess Diana

Like her charming personality, Princess Diana held an impressive watch collection representing her unique and bold style. She was a style icon for many for her well-curated wardrobe and aesthetic clothing sense. If you are lucky to witness Princess Diana’s legendary wedding to Prince Charles in 1981, you must remember the iconic Vacheron Constantin model 4481. Her Majesty gifted the timepiece to her newlywed daughter-in-law as a wedding present. She also wore a gold Patek Philippe gifted to her by Charles.

Being the trendsetter she was, Diana wore both her Patek (Ref. 3618) and that of her husband (Ref. 3445) on the same wrist during the latter’s polo matches in the 1980s to bring good luck. Apart from the royal family, Diana was gifted many watches by others. For instance, the Arabian Royal family gave her a decorated Asprey watch. The princess later modified it into her famous choker necklace.

Following her legal separation, the Princess of Wales wore her two Cartier timepieces. One is the Tank Louis Cartier with a yellow gold case & a black alligator strap, and the other is a yellow gold Tank Francaise. Following Diana’s death, Prince William inherited the Cartier Tank Francaise.

4. Duke of Cambridge: Prince William

If you haven’t already noticed, the Duke of Cambridge sticks to his Omega Seamaster Professional Quartz 300M timepiece. While it’s easy for everyone to assume that the Royal family’s younger generation doesn’t hold much interest in watch collecting, the truth is that the watch was a gift to William from his late mother, Princess Diana, before she passed.

The Omega timepiece features a chronometer, a uni-directional rotating bezel, a screw-in crown and a helium escape valve. The Duke of Cambridge even wore the Omega during his wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011.

5. Duchess of Cambridge: Kate Middleton

Serving elegant looks with every public appearance, the Duchess of Cambridge well knows how to keep it simple yet classy. She flaunts the lustrous Cartier Ballon Bleu with a 33mm steel case, white dial, and shining bracelet gifted to her by her husband, Prince William. The Cartier Ballon Bleu looks perfect next to the oval sapphire engagement ring that belonged to Princess Diana. Kate Middleton’s choice is anything but sophisticated that well goes with her image.

6. Duke of Sussex: Prince Harry

Prince Harry’s watch taste is similar to his other choices, which are slightly different from the rest. Having served in the military for over 10 years, Harry’s taste in watches remains faithful to functionality and reliability. Given that he was once a part of the Apache helicopter regiment, he has a limited-edition Rolex Explorer II Ref. 216570 built only in 48 examples for the members of the Apache attack.

Apart from this, he also owns a special version of Breitling Aerospace Avantage, awarded to pilots who have accomplished combat missions. It is a unique-looking special-edition timepiece featuring an illustration of an Apache helicopter at 3 o’clock and the Army Air Corps Wings at the 9 o’clock position.

Harry is a defense personnel, so it is easy to see his watch choices that well-portray his interests.

Other watches in Prince Harry’s collection include:

  • Casio G-Shock
  • Pulsar G10

7. Duchess of Sussex: Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, keeps things elegant, simple and stylish. Before she was married to the Royal family, Meghan was an actress who gifted herself a two-tone Cartier Tank engraved with ‘To M.M. From M.M.’, which she plans to give to her daughter. She wore the same watch in the Suits TV show as Rachel Zane.

However, after marrying Prince Harry, Meghan has been spotted wearing a Cartier Tank Francaise on many occasions, which Prince William inherited from late Princess Diana but exchanged with Harry for Kate’s engagement ring.

FINAL WORD

The British Royal Family sets an example with their style and preferences in timekeeping. And with all the famous watches in their collection, it is safe to say that the Royal family has the most diverse yet striking collection. These timeless pieces are some of the most sought-after in the world and also embrace an interesting story which draws our attention.
