Tyler, the designer went from an $ 11 Casio to a Cartier Grail
welcome to Watches of the week, where we’ll follow the rarest, craziest and most coveted watches spotted on celebrities.
“Glow up” does not do justice to the process that the Tyler the Creator watch collection has gone through over the past year. It went from a $ 11 Casio to a vintage Cartier Santos-Dumont … and now to one of the funkiest and most treasured designs of all time, the Cartier Crash. It’s a burst of Neville Longbottom’s proportions. And what a release party for this watch: it appears in a lingering shot from his new music video “Lumberjack,” with Tyler dressed as an older version of himself wearing a tuxedo and a cane. Saucy! It’s also hard to think of a better match between the person and the watch – the two drift apart in unexpected places and these rapid changes of direction are the reason they’re both loved.
Tyler, the creator’s Cartier Crash
It’s a little shocking how fast Tyler I get it when it came to watching the collection. He’s only been in the wormhole – publicly at least – since November of last year, when he first showed this Santos-Dumont. A few months later he has the Look. Tyler’s collection isn’t the only thing that’s getting a shine. In the past year alone, Crash’s auction prices have gone from $ 25,700 to $ 225,000. Kanye West is also a fan.
The Rolex Datejust by Trae Young
I mean, they don’t call him Ice Trae for nothing. The Returning King of the 2021 NBA Playoffs has a watch to go with his nickname. This thing is cold: your standard Rolex Datejust all dressed up in a set, uh, diamond platter. In the words of Atlanta legend Gucci Mane: Brrr.
Lena Waithe’s Rolex Datejust
Waithe wears the Datejust beyond the classic, it’s like Trae Young’s watch, without the worry of diamonds. Technically, this is a men’s watch, but Waithe knows how archaic this type of thinking is. A growing crowd of people in the watchmaking world have rightly banged their drums: “All watches should be unisex,” Hodinkee said earlier this year.
Stefanos Tsitsipas’ Rolex Daytona
Tsitsipas lost in the Roland-Garros final, after a barnburner that looked like the real final between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal a round earlier, but at least won the war of the wrists. He is only the latest celebrity to wear the panda-dialed Daytona, after Blake Griffin and Giannis Antetokounmpo. The watch’s claim as the coolest Daytona is growing stronger day by day.
Mansour Bahrami Rolex Daytona Custom Skeleton Concept
Sheesh: OK, forget what I just said about the panda dial argument for the coolest Daytona. At Roland Garros, the former tennis pro Bahrami wore this version of the watch customized by Skeleton Concept. The watch’s skeleton dial is something you rarely see on a Rolex – except for other custom work – and the accents are directly inspired by tennis. The brown sub-dials, for example, are meant to evoke the clay courts of the sport while the movement has been painted white like the strings of a tennis racket.
