Bernard Arnault’s Patek Philippe Tiffany & Co. Nautilus Perpetual Calendar
There are a few perks to being the founder of LVMH, aka the richest man in the world. Like everyone alluding to Succession whenever they talk about your family—leave your phone in the PJ toilet if you drop it, Bernard! Also, getting a custom one-of-one Tiffany Nautilus. The original version of this watch without a Perpetual Calendar sold for a staggering $6.5 million at auction and there are 170 of them in production. Arnault’s version is equipped with a perpetual calendar function, which will keep the accurate day of the week and date until the year 2100. One of the biggest flexes in the world. (Take a closer look at it here.)
Drew Barrymore’s Rolex Oyster Perpetual
Barrymore continues to blow me away with her watch collection. She wore an excellent version of Rolex’s entry-level Oyster Perpetual to the Time 100 gala this week. This model has a dial similar to Rolex’s Explorer, with 3, 6, and 9’clock written out in impossible-to-miss Arabic numerals.
LeBron James’s Rolex Oyster Perpetual
Speaking of beloved versions of the Oyster Perpetual, James wore maybe the most desirable of the modern OPs this week. In 2020, Rolex released a suite of colorful Oyster Perpetuals, none of which was more popular than this turquoise (Tiffany-adjacent) dial. Naturally, Rolex quickly discontinued these watches. However, the Crown cheekily put out a “Bubble” OP this year which features every color from that 2020 collection on one dial.
Kris Jenner’s Rolex Yacht-Master
The Yacht-Master was developed as a luxury alternative to the Submariner and it really lives up to that purpose on Jenner’s model. The Momager’s watch is slathered with diamonds on both the dial and the bezel. Her and boyfriend Corey Gamble have been lighting up the
Staples Center Crypto.Com Arena courtside seats with their watches recently.
Ke Huy Quan’s Omega de Ville
No one in Hollywood is having a better time than Ke Huy Quan right now. You can see the joy he brings to these events, meeting his fellow actors—look at these hugs! look at these jumps!—and getting dressed. He played this one perfectly: matching his black tie with a beautiful red-carpet-ready Omega with a black dial and black leather strap.
Jude Law’s Cartier Tank
Some people were just born to wear Cartier Tanks. Guys who just so happen to have a PhD in elegance and personal style: Timothée Chalamet, Tyler, the Creator, and Rami Malek are all in that club. It’s safe to add Law to that list, too.
