Welcome to Watches of the Week, the place we’ll monitor the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches noticed on celebrities.
Add yet another to the numerous causes to stan Rihanna: she’s made watches a necessary aspect of her being pregnant journey. When she introduced her first being pregnant final January, she wore one in all Rolex’s rarer and extra uncommon fashions, the pointed King Midas, which is impressed by the Parthenon temple of Athena in Greece (the truth that the watch is throughout my Instagram feed a yr later doesn’t really feel like a coincidence). Final month, through the Tremendous Bowl halftime present by which she teased her child bump, she wore a scarlet Jacob & Co. Good Skeleton Northern Lights. And this week, Rihanna wore a totally completely different watch, the Rolex Day-Date, whereas out in Los Angeles with A$AP Rocky.
The Day-Date has by no means seemed cooler—an impact Rihanna has on most of the clothes and niknaks she wears. Most famously related to presidents like Lyndon Johnson, the Day-Date clearly advantages from Rihanna’s edge. Slightly than sliding it beneath a swimsuit, she reveals it off alongside her tattoos and the bump poking out from beneath her Loewe crop prime.
Stainless-steel sport watches have grow to be all-occasion items, pulled from on a regular basis put on into formal costume. Rihanna makes a superb argument that we must always truly be doing the other: carrying costume watches whereas working errands.
Rolex is Rihanna’s model of selection, and he or she’s a fan of the Day-Date particularly. This mannequin, which has a gold case and champagne dial, seems to be a bit she has owned for years. There are photos of her courtside at NBA games carrying a similar-looking watch. After all, Rihanna can afford to stack up as many Day-Dates as she likes. She additionally owns a uncommon model in pink gold, which is made particularly distinctive by its “Oyster” bracelet. (The Day-Date is so related to its customary “President” bracelet that just about everybody is aware of the watch by that nickname.)
Daniel Kaluuya’s Vacheron Constantin Abroad Chronograph
Kaluuya’s watch combines two components that by no means miss. First is Vacheron Constantin, which has by no means performed a crimson carpet attendee fallacious (see last week’s Oscars for proof of that). The second is the chronograph with a reverse-panda format, which means a black dial with white subdials. Collectors search out classic watches with this similar format, and plenty of fashionable items, like this Abroad, have adopted the model. Vacheron is thought for its dressier watches, but it surely does sporty ones like this simply as nicely.
Aaron Rodgers’s Zenith Chronomaster Sport
A very powerful phrases spoken throughout Aaron Rodgers’ interview with Pat McAfee this week? “I’ve one ring and one watch.” That one watch is the Zenith Chronomaster Sport with a white dial and a trademark trio of multi-colored subdials. It’s good to see this explicit watch on Rodgers’ wrist, as a result of he told GQ’s Yang-Yi Goh that he’d misplaced it after the Packers went to London to play the New York Giants final season. “I searched all of the locations I believed it may very well be—so I’m going to need to re-search my home after I get again,” Rodgers stated. “That’s often my on a regular basis watch.”
Luka Doncic’s Audemars Piguet Royal Oak
Doncic’s Audemars Piguet is the kind of watch that’s hardly ever seen IRL, however seems to be standard-issue NBA gear. That is truly Doncic’s third variation of the Royal Oak, which he owns in gold-on-gold and white gold with a salmon-colored dial. By some means, the white-gold blue-dial model he wore this week is essentially the most modest of the bunch. Doncic is at the moment attempting to return again from harm and assist the Mavericks safe a playoff spot, which could clarify the brand new timepiece. After I’m sick, I additionally scroll by way of webshops searching for a brand new watch to purchase as just a little pick-me-up.

New Miami Dolphin and legendary shit talker Jalen Ramsey launched himself to his new fan base carrying a Hublot Spirit of Massive Bang.
