Welcome to Clock of the weekwhere we’ll track the rarest, wildest and most coveted watches spotted on celebrities.
Ben Affleck once said he took on his ill-fated Batman role to impress the kids. “I wanted to do something that my son would dig into,” he said last year. “I mean, my kids didn’t see Argo. (They should! It’s good.) Now, however, it seems Affleck has found a much quicker and simpler way to impress Batman. Why play Batman when you can wear a batman? The actor was recently seen in Los Angeles wearing a Rolex GMT-Master II with a dark blue bezel. Although it is not a name given by Rolex, this variant of the watch is known to collectors as Batman.
Recently, Affleck has really elevated its watch collection. After getting back together with Jennifer Lopez last year, he unearthed a watch she bought him as a gift when they were first together in the early 2000s. They seem to be mostly about celebration and full of emotion, like great watch collections. He debuted two amazing pieces — a Hermès Arceau L’Heure De La Lune and a custom skeletonized Rolex Submariner by Artisan De Geneve — to the public while riding aloft on his honeymoon in September. Seven. Even Batman nods back to his arduous journey through Zack Snyder’s Justice League cinematic universe. After all, Batman related paraphernalia is never an issue. “I wore that outfit to my son’s birthday party, which was worth every single moment of pain on Alliance justice“, he said. Hopefully Affleck’s kids will be impressed by this newest brush with Batman — we sure are.
Richard Mille RM 74-02 by Pharrell
The problem with celebrities and their watches is that they are never satisfied with the factory model. Even the pieces that most average collectors would wait a lifetime for are just another thing to customize, destroy, or alter in some way. Take the RM 74-02 by Pharrell, a watch that already stands out with its tourbillon and the yellow and red-gold bridges running along the dial. While regular watches will have straps, Pharrell has a premium version with an eye-catching gold bracelet.
Emma Chamberlain’s Cartier Panthère
The verdict is at the home of Emma Chamberlain, the subject of a Architectural Notice tour this week: so good! She has all the right status icons: a Camaleonda-style modular sofa, custom artwork (from dad!) and a scrawled Ettore Sottsass Ultrafragola mirror (a cough! even if it may peak in 2019 a cough!). Naturally, she has an It-Girl watch to go with the house. During her tour, she wore luxurious and elegant Cartier Panthère pants. Nothing says “my career as a content creator will” really good” like the gilded Panthère.
Oris Carysfort Reef by Aaron Boone
With Aaron Judge marking Roger Maris’ home record of 61 games this week and pursuing further history with a half-dozen games left on the schedule, it seems like the conversation is falling apart in all directions that could be. conceivable. Is 61? real operator record? (No, even the Judge said.) What should someone do if they catch one of the Judge’s family members? How much can one get for the ball in the auction? Who would think of Frankie Lasagna?? Here’s another question that needs an answer: does Yankees manager Aaron Boone have some nice watch that flashed while giving Judge a well-deserved hug? An Oris Carysfort Reed, a limited edition in gold. The watch with a dark blue dial with a gold case fits well into the Boone collection. The skipper has proven he’s unafraid of some colors in the past when shaking chunks of peeled tomatoes.
