welcome to Watches of the week, where we’ll follow the rarest, craziest and most coveted watches spotted by celebrities.
Pharrell is clearly not from this planet. Man does not age and dresses like an evolved species sent here to be our benevolent intergalactic ruler. The rapper-producer-singer has the bracelets to prove it: a space-grade Richard Mille he made in collaboration with the luxury sports watch brand. The watch, released in November 2019, is the visualization of one of Pharrell’s dreams: it features an astronaut standing on Mars looking towards Earth. It’s not the typical design you’ll find on a $ 969,000 watch, but that’s exactly why Pharrell turned (sorry) to Richard Mille in the first place. He called RM watches “a breath of fresh air in a stagnant category.” Also this week, more Pandas and Future have a citrus party on his wrist.
Richard Mille RM 52-05 from Pharrell
Pharrell is a longtime Richard Mille fan. He shouted the mark on a song all the way in 2006, and until the release of his own model, was frequently seen wearing the RM25-01 made in conjunction with Sylvester Stallone. In the latter’s press release, he called Richard Mille the “supreme creator of the watch,” which nails him: who else would release an astronaut-themed watch that still includes all the bells and whistles? – it is made of a material of the brand called the cermet, which combines ceramic and metal, and still manages to fit a tourbillon under the astronaut – of a very serious timepiece?
Rolex Pearlmaster 39 of the future
Vitamin C deficiencies disappear! This lemon-orange version of the Datejust is the definition of sublime post-pandemic style. This watch was released in 2015, but looks like a long omen of what was to come. This year, the Datejust and Day-Date versions are having more fun than ever. Like Future’s, a crop of Day-Dates slated for release this year are adorned with jewelry and shot in festive colors. So, unsurprisingly, Future is right on trend.
Russell Westbrook’s Rolex Datejust
Russell Westbrook never plays him by the book. If he’s wearing a sweater, he’s going to need a gaping hole in the center. If he’s holding a basketball, he’s going to need a rim to destroy it. Even the very traditional Rolex Datejust is not immune to the “Why Not?” From Westbrook. mantra. While nearly every version of the Datejust has appeared on Rolex’s Jubilee bracelet, Westbrook traded it in for a navy blue leather strap with a yellow band just off-center. In this case, it’s hard to argue with Westbrook’s off-road results: in the NBA, the Datejusts are a dime a dozen, but none look like Russ’s.
Austin River Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar
Austin Rivers immediately made a statement after joining his new team, the Denver Nuggets. Not necessarily on the pitch, where he scored 5 points in his debut, but in the arena tunnel where he wore one of the hottest watches around. Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak white ceramic seems to have its own gravity, drawing every high-end watch collector to its orbit: Kevin Hart has one, just like Trevor Noah, Virgil Abloh has personalized his and Draymond Green calls him. one of the best pieces in his collection. Just a row of assassin collectors who all agree that there is something special about the already iconic Royal Oak in white ceramic.
Stefanos Tsitsipas’ Rolex Daytona
In recent weeks, this black and white Daytona – the “Panda” dial – has appeared on the wrists of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Blake Griffin, and now Monte-Carlo Masters champion Stefanos Tsitsipas. I thought these things were supposed to be in danger?
