Welcome Clock of the week, Where we will track the rare, wild and alluring watches seen among celebrities
In Tom Holland GQ With this week’s cover story and her appearance at the Man of the Year party on Thursday night, we learned a lot about love. We learned that Tom Holland loves Zendaya and Zendaya loves Tom Holland. But I also learned that I fell in love with Holland’s watch collection, which apparently now has a lovely Cartier tank that he wore with his warm brown-orange velvet tuxedo. Surprisingly, the Spider-Man game gave Holland the opportunity to create a very large watch collection. He has already racked up many classics, including [Patek Philippe Aquanaut](https://www.gq.com/story/watches-of-the-week-7-6-19), a special edition tag Heuer Monaco, a Rolex submarine “Cermit” and a Rolex Daytona. And he’s just 25 years old this week, Michael B. Jordan has made it a classic, and Dwayne Wade has joined the Cartier crew.
Tom Holland’s Cartier tank
We’ve been playing drums all year round for Cartier, but home watches have been seen so frequently that it’s become something of a percussion line: slap the bongo, shake the maracas, and beat the gong. Before Holland it was J-Z and its Crash and Tyler, the manufacturer wore the same watch earlier this year. Everything is upswing for Cartier. The brand set another auction record earlier this month when a crash sold for around $ 868,000, making it one of the most expensive Cartier pieces at auction.
Here, Holland appears to be wearing a Cartier Tank American, a slightly longer version of the classic watch that is curved to fit neatly on the wrist. It’s a little more classic than Tyler and Jay’s watches, but no less exciting.
Michael B. Jordan’s Rolex Day-Date
If handsome people gather to celebrate their beautiful looks once a year on a cable, I imagine they would all wear: beautiful matching jacket-and-pants set with the inevitably handsome gold Rolex Day-Date on their wrists.
Dwayne Wade’s Cartier Drive
Another shelf for Cartier. While the brand may at first glance seem coastal to the power of its classic, decades-old design, the drive flies in the face of that idea. The model looks as classic as any other part of the brand’s catalog, Cartier only released the drive in 2016.
Rolex Daytona “Rainbow” by Giannis Antetocanumpor
Last year, apparently out of the blue, Antetokounmpo’s wrist was decorated with empty to luxurious watches. Now, we have an explanation. In his cover story with GQ, Antetokounmpo says that unlike the typical budget-minded and mostly fit-related NBA players, he doesn’t like to focus on what he wears in the tunnel. However, a material has its soft spot for good. “Now, if you talk about something I enjoy, I like watches,” he said. But the reasoning behind his love you wouldn’t expect from a guy who signed a $ 228 million deal last year. He likes watches the most, I guess, they increase the price. Elsewhere in the story, he explained that instead of shelling out private jet trips, he would invest. “The market does 6 to 10 percent every year,” he explains. The Rolex Daytona “Rainbow” Antitoconumpo he wore for the shoot may have lost those numbers.
Lewis Hamilton’s IWC Big Pilot Watch Top Song “Mozave Dessert”
IWC is best known for its classic pilot watches, but Hamilton’s piece proves how the brand knows how to work beyond tradition. Top Gun Mozave Desert is a very smooth special version with a sand colored ceramic case. For IWC, which keeps its aviation history close to heart, there are good reasons for all this. The desert-inspired color path is a tribute to the Naval Air Weapons Station on Lake China, which calls the Mozave Desert home. IWC introduced this sandy ceramic in 2019 but Hamilton’s 2021 release is the first permanent calendar pilot watch to come with a perpetual calendar.
