Welcome to Clock of the weekwhere we will track the rarest, wildest and most coveted watches spotted on celebrities.
Count on John Mayer to always find the odd, puzzling watch that appears to be tailored for him. At better times of the year, this salmon dial perpetual calendar has been tucked away, secretly tucked away in Japan as an exclusive release that not even the US-based AP team is familiar with. , follow Hodinkee. But at the end of last summer, when the second shipment became available in the state, Mayer immediately became a customer. It’s a natural fit: after all, our officially designated WWMIC (Watch’s World’s Most Influential Collector) has had a passionate love for legendary hard-to-buy fashion. secret from Japan and maintains a storage unit to keep all his Visvim.
Even if it didn’t emerge from some hiding place in Japan, this watch would probably have Mayer smitten. Mayer was really interested in her Audemars Piguet works. He recently wore the new Royal Oak “Musical Edition” which uses a series of sapphires to mimic the look and feel of the tonal equalizer on the dial. A hilarious choice for Mayer. But there is something watch collectors cannot resist about the salmon dial. The fishy color is a favorite for many brands’ special editions, whether you’re Patek Philippe selling the most expensive wristwatch in history or Zenith in its recent association with Hodinkee. Another winner rating for Mayer.
Simu Liu’s Omega Seamaster Ploprof
I believe we have a first here in the history of the Watch of the Week. In the more than three years I’ve been writing this column, not a single celebrity has worn the creepy funky Ploprof (a compound of the French words for divers, hunters, and professionals). So thanks to Liu, as this is one of my favorite watches. It’s a truly eccentric design: the Ploprof was made with divers in mind, and even received feedback on the look from French diving company COMEX (also a much-desired Rolex dial). In an official guide to clarifying its history, Omega writes that the watch’s dial is “certainly the most distinctive feature of the watch”. Well, I hate to argue, but I would say that the most distinctive feature of the watch is the large button that protrudes from its face. Liu’s is a luxury for Ploprof, but many of the early designs featured a large red safety-press Button — how cool is that? (Press the button to open the winding bezel, if you’re wondering.) That feature takes the watch completely into screw sphere territory and makes it a real hit on the red carpet.
Daniel Kaluuya’s Audemars Piguet Royal Oak
The hottest competition in the world right now is the ongoing competition between High speed train and ARE NOT pedestrians on the red carpet. What we’re seeing is a match battle of such large proportions, and with such A-rank talent, it feels like the Russo brothers have to be involved somehow. Giving a point to his team is Daniel Kaluuya, who wore one of the extremely special Royal Oaks APs launched for the watch’s 50th anniversary.
Jack Harlow’s Rolex GMT-Master II Watch
If there is any watch that epitomizes the “Best in Class” lifestyle that Harlow speaks of, it is the GMT. The watch is made for travel: originally designed for Pan-Am employees, its hefty price tag and rarity mean GMT is now more associated with people sitting in chairs. smoothly at the front of the plane. Harlow is wearing a black and blue version of the “Batman” watch.
Aaron Paul’s Rolex Oyster Perpetual Watch
The Break the recent cinematic universe is growing to epic proportions: the show’s spin-off It’s better to call Saul just did a crossover episode featuring Bryan Cranston and Paul. Meanwhile, the couple attended the unveiling of statues of their characters at the Albuquerque Convention Center last weekend. For the event, Paul wore one of the short-lived and highly coveted Oyster Perpetuals with a ruby red dial. What happens is that Paul’s veteran owns the exact same watch.
