Watch manufacturers pushing the boundaries of popular accessories understand that a famous name endorsement is the best way to break through from a public overwhelmed by advertising methods. Excellently known brands are competing to get the world’s leading celebrities to wear their products. When it comes to renowned luxury watches, it’s all about who wears them. Love them or hate them, you can’t deny some of the wonderful timepieces they flaunt – and, to be honest, we’re that little jealous of them as well. Iconic athletes have been known to wear the most notable sports watches, while Hollywood is residence to glitzy celebs who match the grandeur of the gemstone watches they wear. Here are a few of the most popular luxury watch brands and celebrities who wear them either by heart or by endorsement.
1. Patek Nautilus – Drake
Drake, one of the hottest and most talented US rappers and producers, was spotted wearing a Patek Nautilus ref 5976 back in 2016 when the luxurious watch brand released it with a white gold chronograph. The 44 mm solid white gold case, chronograph registers and anniversary embossing, and the dial with diamond markers are all featured in the model.
2. TAG Heuer – Leonardo DiCaprio
The Oscar’s award-winning actor has been seen sporting a TAG Heuer Carrera Caliber 16 Day-Date Chronograph watch on numerous events. TAG Heuer is a well-known luxury brand known for its gamesmanship and mechanical chronographs. This stainless steel design features a 100-meter water-resistant 43mm case, black dial, and exceptional sapphire crystals looking right for the World’s Hollywood idol.
3. Rolex – Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston, a well-known woman and fashion icon around the world, is a big fan of Rolex watches. Without a doubt, Rolex is the most popular watch brand among Hollywood celebrities, thanks to its advanced and classic design elements. Jennifer has been photoed wearing several Rolex watches throughout her career, including a men’s Yellow Gold Rolex Datejust, a Rolex Daytona, and a Rolex Air King, and men’s Yellow Gold Rolex Datejust. Her Rolex selection complements her down-to-earth, high fashion, and glamorous style.
4. Bremont – Tom Cruise
The action star is a big admirer of the Bremont ALT1-C, a fashionable and eye-catching brand produced by aircraft developers themselves. This Bremont watch has an anthracite dial and a black leather bracelet. Tom, like most high-profile film actors, does not limit himself to a single fashion item. He’s been spotted wearing Panerai, Casio G-Shock, IWC, and Omega (Daniel Craig is another Omega fan) timepieces.
5. Audemars Piguet – Kim Kardashian West
Kim Kardashian West is one of the virtual age’s giants when it comes to celebrities. Kim, the popular social tycoon, adores glitz and glamour, so it’s no surprise that she wears a variety of renowned watches and designer colors. She is a huge admirer of the finely designed Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Skeleton, and she is always prepared to be filmed with only the best items.
The watch is both eye-catching and affable, thanks to its limited-edition stainless steel case and anthracite dial.
6. Tudor – Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga got her start as a pop artist before breaking into the film world with “A Star Is Born”. She is now one of the world’s most successful individuals, and one of the leading faces of Hollywood flamboyance. Gaga appears to be wearing a TUDOR Black Bay 32, an automatic timepiece with a bold and distinguishable steel and gold model that is both trendy and sporty to match her distinctive personality and modern lifestyle.
7. Richard Mille – Pharell Williams
Pharrell Williams, a Grammy’s award-winning singer-songwriter, and producer, appreciates inventiveness and style. His watch collection reflects this, as he is frequently seen wearing Richard Mille’s fantastic collection. The Richard Mille RM 031, a platinum-machine high-level piece with impressive talent, is his statement timepiece.
8. Panerai – Sylvester Stallone
Sylvester Stallone has long become a Panerai supporter and ambassador. Few people can pull off its large size and undeniable designs as well as this larger-than-life film star. He’s frequently spotted with his Luminor Regatta 1950 Rattrapante. He also has a Luminor PAM127, an Egiziano Limited Edition, and a Luminor Submersible Chrono. Along with his affinity for the Panerai product, “Sly” is a big Rolex fan, owning a Day-Date and a Submariner among his high-end timepieces.
9. Jaeger-LeCoultre – Ryan Gosling
Ryan Gosling’s preference in timepieces leans toward modernism. His Jaeger-LeCoultre Vintage Memovox is particularly appealing to us. During the filming of his film Drive, he used several replica models based on a Patek Philippe Calatrava 5196G in white gold. According to reports, Gosling and the film’s director, Nicolas Winding, did vote on the watch. As development came to an end, Gosling demanded that a copy be kept for himself as a memento.
In a Nutshell
For many, being oriented about a watch just because their idols wore or endorsed it is not surprising. Luxury watches may be famous and high-end but not everybody cares about, unless they’re a die-hard fan of someone, and that someone is a watch ambassador. Imagine how many Black Bay watches were sold to the Little Monsters because of the Mother Monster’s influence. Surely, it’s astonishing.
