Following the most talked about event, Oscar Academy Awards 2017 last week, we landed investigating the world of luxury Watches and highlights of top watch brands like we always do. Mighty luxury watches wrapped over equally mighty wrists over the world. Which were like cherry on top. Today Johnson Watch Co will be discussing the Oscars and luxury timepieces, celebrities walked the red carpet with.
A walk through the eyes of Horology
When Captain America walks with a Montblanc
Tracking down our devices that we love, on the people we love most controversial sight was Montblanc’s e-strap that showcased combination of a smartwatch and a mechanical device with extremely delicate intimacy. Spotted our Captain in need, Chris Evans flawlessly sporting a Montblanc Star Classique on his wrist was the crown to the stroke of style and sublimity. Luxury watches as elegant as the man wearing it, Montblanc Star Classique never fails to be a classic timepiece. No arguments to be made to Evans’s choice as it signifies his persona on and off screen very close to perfection.
Mahershala Ali with MOONLIGHT-ing IWC
Moonlight fame Mahershala Ali was one of the most sought after celebrities were found to have an IWC Da Vinci Chronograph on his wrist. Best of choices made, features a 42 millimeter stainless steel case fitted with newly designed moving lugs and curved horns. Adding to its grace the dark blue dial was just like gin to his intense black ensemble tonic. *this sounds really different but you can replace it by- the dark blue dial and his intense black ensemble were just like gin and tonic to each other*. These luxury watches are limited to 1500 pieces only, truly a rare work of art.
Another IWC but on an Indian’s wrist
To make up for limited nature of IWC Da Vinci Chronograph, the Portugieser is a definite head turner with its eye catching blue dial attached to an introverted albeit immaculately designed stainless steel bracelet. This big, bold and classic timepiece was spotted adding grace to the Lion fame Dev Patel. The white dial in contrast to the leather strap was in perfect accordance with Dev’s tux for the night. Together they were oozing perfection on the Red Carpet.
A luxurious Cartier on Mr. Grey
Just as radiating as the man of 50 shades, Jamie Dornan was the limited series Drive De Cartier. The 2017 edition of the Cartier Drive De Cartier Extra flat in pink gold was best blend to his looks and personality. Since the Extra Flat is yet to hit the market, one can spot its predecessor the Drive de Cartier, recognized as one of the most successful men’s luxury watches proving it worthy of all the praise it received. Constructed with refine lines, it brings out Cartier’s stylish, elegant and modern persona.
King of Martial Arts, Jackie Chan sporting a Richard Mille
As cool as the man wearing it, there is no one better who can pull off a Richard Mille as Jackie Chan does. Known for his long time chemistry between Chan and Richard Mille, Chan was spotted wearing a Richard Mille RM 57-01 in white gold Phoenix and Dragon which he designed himself with Richard Mille, the one out of only just 15 made yet. That’s what we call cool. Also it came to our light that Chan auctioned his unique RM 55 to support his Dragon Heart foundation that helps and works for kids. That is grace and greatness holding the same torch.
A suave timepiece on a suave man
Unable to hold our breath when we spotted charming Eddie Redmayne with an Omega Globemaster. Without any doubt and surprises Eddie the charm-master chose to wear the brand he represents as a brand ambassador. A number one pick for us, why you ask? A mechanical timepiece, the Omega Constellation Globemaster a perfect blend of style and functionality. Tested and certified by COSC and METAS and by a new eight-stage testing program that has been developed by Omega specifically for the Globemaster. A revolutionary watch stunned the world made quite an impression on the Oscars Red Carpet as well.
Few wrists that took Bvlgari
One of everyone’s favorite, Jared Leto aka The Joker sported the sleek and glossy Bvlgari Octo Finissimo with a diamond encrusted bezel. For the big night, the shape shifting method actor chose to go with the ultra thin luxury watch with a predominantly square shape, perfect for someone looking for contemporary timepieces with minimalistic design preferences.
Another celebrity who decided to sport a Bvlgari was Tom Hardy. Most liked bad boy on the Oscars Red Carpet, Tom Hardy pulled off an Iconic Bvlgari Chronograph with perfection in an 18K pink gold case. It is Bvlgari’s most iconic designs yet. The double branding on the bezel is unique and can be as easily recognized as Hardy himself.
A soul-fitting adventure that the Red Carpet turned out to be for us, we are looking forward for more bling-a-ring Hollywood nights and surprising us and the Red Carpet.
