C&C: Celebrities & Their Watches

Postby TemerityB » May 14th 2017, 2:20pm

Written so overtly gushy on Crown & Caliber that you can tell the writer had a box of Kleenex within reach, it's still kinda fun. The article lists not only actores, but politicians, athletes, and "entertainers."

The life of a celebrity is an interesting one, to be sure. They put in the work, of course, that makes them famous, but they’re set apart from the world at large. Scrutinized to a degree unlike any other. However, the brands they endorse can often make them more relatable. Such is the life of a celebrity influencer: whatever the item or brand might be, its demand increases significantly anytime that celebrity is seen wearing it (just ask the Kardashians). It doesn’t matter if it’s a true endorsement or just personal preference.

On the other side of the celebrity equation, brands (like luxury watch brands) are aware of our cultural infatuation with celebrities. As such, they jump at the opportunity to get their watches on the wrists of the rich and famous.

Many of today’s top celebrities–actors, athletes, entertainers–are endorsed by luxury watch brands, putting a watch in front of millions of eyes each time they wear it. When a celebrity is seen wearing a watch, whether to the grocery store, in an advertisement, or in a movie, fans notice. At the same time, luxury watch companies also pay big bucks to put their watches in films. Here are some of the most famous watch/celebrity partnerships.

Celebrities choices in watches (and everything else) are totally irrelevant to me...but, nice to see any watch making the news...

I was very interested to read of Jay-Z's love of Hublot.

Hublots? Beyoncé!

Looks like no one famous wears Eterna, Zenith or Tissot. Yay, now I can brag about not wearing a watch by a celebrity-endorsed brand ;) Oh, wait... The Rolling Stones teamed up with Zenith... That's it for the bragging, then.*





*They're one of my favourite bands, so it's OK, I guess...

My first thought was "who the fuck is Russell Westbrook?"
Which is only the natural thing to ask, when not in the slightest is one interested in basketball.
That said, I as well had to resort to the help of Google.
