Welcome to Clock of the weekwhere we will track the rarest, wildest and most coveted watches spotted on celebrities.
Over the past year, Steve Harvey has been on a hero’s journey towards the righteous style. Gone are the clothes he told us were “27 knees. Instead, head-to-toe Balenciaga pajamas and pastel pink suits. But what seems to be missing from the makeup, or maybe just hidden under the emerald green coat, is a watch. Fair enough: Rome wasn’t built in a day either. But now it looks like Harvey is tackling his bare wrist problem too, with the Hublot Classic Fusion “Black Magic”.
Hublot is a fitting choice for the new forward-thinking Harvey. The brand’s ties to the fashion world are deep: A-Cold-Wall founder Samuel Ross, Obey’s Shepard Fairey and designer-favorite artist Takashi Murakami are all Hublot collaborators. And while Harvey is wearing a monochrome black watch around this time, it should come as no surprise to see him delving into Hublot’s catalog. In our interview with Harvey last year about his new style, he said he’s most excited about the color in his new look. Hublot has no shortage of super bold timepieces on offer — this year, the brand is launching a sapphire watch in grape-purple after launching in kumquat in 2021. Harvey’s style is evolving. , it seems like it’s only a matter of time until his watch gets weird too.
Maluma’s Cartier Ballon Bleu
Cartier watches come in a variety of fun mixed shapes – mimicking watches, leaning in weird directions or melting – which is a big deal when the brand does something, well, casual. Such was the case in 2007 when the French jeweler introduced Maluma’s Ballon Bleu. The round watch may be the industry’s most popular shape, but somehow it feels interesting coming from Cartier. But of course with Cartier it’s never just a circle. Maluma’s version of the watch has rings inside circles: the case, date window, crown guard, and even the diamonds around the bezel all retain that rounded shape.
Kieran Culkin’s IWC Pilot’s Watch
During his late evening with Stephen Colbert, Culkin mentioned that he came straight from filming Heir and still wearing his costume. We’ve got our part breaking the four-season watch — is Tom Wambsgans’ upgrade to the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph a sign that his coup has been successful? —But it will be harder to read any symbols from this IWC. If this stripped-down and serious pilot’s suit is what Culkin wears on the show, it could be a sign he’s relaxing and heading to friendlier skies. But this may just be Culkin’s personal watch. He’s worn it before… at a Heir screening. We’ll have to wait until season 4 to be sure.
Rolex GMT-Master II by Rob Lowe
Some people just have all the luck, huh? Ageless wonder Rob Lowe is seen here wearing a very collectible black and brown “Root Beer” GMT. This is the year of GMT. Rolex, Tudor, Grand Seiko and the not-so-big Seiko are all releasing new GMTs. I feel like I’ve seen them more often on the wrists of celebrities like Lowe. It makes sense that out of the pandemic, people and brands are turning to travel watches.
Darren Barnet’s Seiko x Rowing Blazers “Rally”
I have never hunk Barnet wore the watch we selected for the most affordable release in 2021, are we responsible for awarding it. Brat-prep brand Rowing Blazers has partnered with Seiko to bring back a few watches from the archives, including this striking “Rally” version with a checkered flag motif on the bezel. It’s a good sign that although the watches retail for as little as $495, celebrities with larger budgets, like Barnet and former NBA player JJ Redick, are attracted to them.
