Five Celebrities and Their Favorite Watches

One sign of a celebrity’s fame is the kind of watch they wear. Rolex or Christian Dior on a celebrity’s wrist means they’ve made it to the “million dollar club.” Timex means they haven’t. Most celebs have a favorite luxury watch that they love to wear or endorse, gaining publicity for themselves and the watch brand.

Here is a list of five celebrities and the watches that they love to wear and endorse:

 

Diane Kruger Jaeger LeCoultre Rendezvous

Diane Kruger – Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendezvouz Ladies Watch

Diane Kruger has been brand ambassador for Swiss watchmaker Jauger-LeCoultre since 2009. She wears the Rendezvous ladies watch. Available in pink-gold or stainless steel, the watch exudes a feminine elegance that was inspired by Diane Kruger. Says the brand on its official website: “Her innate grace, her cosmopolitan spirit and her choices inspired the feminine world of Jaeger-LeCoultre.” This watch is truly beautiful, with a diamond-set illuminated bezel, 1930s Art Deco inspired numerals set upon a guilloché dial, and a sapphire crystal case-back.

 

Jennifer Aniston's Yellow Gold Rolex Datejust

Jennifer Aniston – Rolex Datejust

It is well known in Hollywood that Jennifer Aniston is a “Rolex-only” kind of girl. There are hundreds of pictures of her out on the town with a Rolex on her wrist. Although she has been photographed wearing a black Rolex Daytona, it is clear that her yellow gold Rolex Datejust is her favorite. Her Rolex Day-Date is an 18-carat yellow gold piece with a fluted bezel and a champagne colored dial.

Leonardo DiCaprio – TAG Heuer Carrera

Brand Ambassador for “Swiss avant-garde” watch manufacturer TAG Heuer, Leonardo DiCaprio loves to sport the TAG Heuer Carrera timepiece. With a Calibre 16 Automatic Chronograph powering the watch, it’s a perfect match for motor racing and other fast-paced sports. Both DiCaprio and TAG Heuer share a common goal of environmental sustainability.

Charlize Theron – Christian Dior VII

Charlize Theron has moved from the ads of Christian Dior’s “J’adore” perfume to the Christian Dior VII watch. This watch is extravagant to the extreme. With a white ceramic and steel casing and diamonds set into an opaline and silver dial, it’s hard to decide which is more beautiful – the watch or Charlize Theron.

 

 

 

 

Kate Winslet wears Longines Dolcevita

Kate Winslet – Longines Dolcevita

Kate Winslet has Longines “ambassadress of Elegance” since 2010.  Swiss watch brand Longines, established in 1832, has had many celebrity ambassadors including tennis player Andre Agassi, Australian actor Simon Baker, and Indian Beauty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, but it could be argued that Kate Winslet is the most elegant face to wear their watches. She wears the Longines Dolcevita, an elegantly designed timepiece that was inspired by the easy-going Italian way of life – la dolce vita. Everything about this watch has femininity to it: its rectangular stainless steel and pink gold case and bracelet, its tear drop hour markers, and pink hour and minute hands.

World’s Most Expensive Luxury Watches

Written by Debbie. Posted in Authentic Watches, Chopard, Diamond Watches, jewelry watches, LifeStyle Watches, Luxury Watches, Style Watches, Watch Brands

Chopard watchesNow there’s luxury watches and then there’s extreme luxury watches.  Want to take a guess at the price tag on the world’s most expensive one for sale right now?  Don’t even bother…you won’t believe it anyway.  The most extravagant luxury watch on the market to date is the diamond encrusted Chopard, listed at a cool $25 million dollars.  While this watch boasts over 201 carats of pink, blue, and white diamonds, including a single 163 carat diamond…who is really going to walk around with this on their wrist?  Obviously, this is a showcase piece, but is all that opulence really necessary.  When half of America is out of work and struggling, do we really need to be so bold and brazen as to create a watch like this?  I guess the answer is yes, but I for one think it is rather ridiculous.  I want to own pieces with history and meaning, like the old blue dial Seiko watch that my dad used to wear.  I keep that piece tucked away safely in my jewelry box and if anything ever happened to it I would be crushed, but I wouldn’t be broke.  Choosing luxury watches should be more about taste than cost.

Gucci New Ad Campaign, Featuring Veruschka

Gucci, the trendsetting design house and luxury watch maker is taking a different approach to their ad campaigns this year.  This iconic fashion house is utilizing their rich and illustrious history for the inspiration of their new advertising campaign.  Their new ads will feature two black and white images, which were shot back in the 1960’s.  Gucci’s new international ad campaign will use these images as a back drop to their three new collections. 

The ads will highlight Gucci’s timepieces, which will be superimposed over the black and white prints.  The G-Gucci timepiece, Gucci’s digital watch, and a traditional men’s chronograph, featuring a moss green bracelet are the watches to be showcased.  The original vintage photos are of 60’s model and actress Veruschka von Lehndorff.  Veruschka was a legendary model, making 11 appearances on the cover of Vogue magazine and working with artists, such as Salvador Dali, and her shots are as relevant and riveting today as they were 50 years ago.  Digging up these archived images and using them in a contemporary and updated way shows off Gucci’s brilliance, as a designer.  Gucci is pairing the timeless beauty of the past and the present, showing that  splendor really doesn’t ever go out of fashion.

Movado’s Chess Game

Written by Debbie. Posted in More News, Movado, News, Watch Brands

Movado Group is Planning Ahead

Movado is a watch company who wants to come through these tough economic times smelling like a rose, and to accomplish that, they must plan ahead and make some crucial choices.  This year Movado will close many of their retail sales boutiques, making room for more revenue through third party sales, via the internet and through other retailers.  This change is huge for the Swiss watch maker, but will not (on its own) promise a bright future.  The experts at Movado have a few more surprises for us, one of which is the promotion of Joe Faranda.  Faranda is a global marketing expert and is Movado’s new Senior Vice President of Consumer Insights and Strategic Planning.  This position is new and created especially for Faranda.  He will report directly to Chairman and CEO of Movado Group, Inc, Efraim Grinberg.  In this new position Mr. Faranda will be responsible for overseeing product development and marketing strategies for Movado and ESQ for Movado.  He has been brought in to utilize his expertise and to bring Movado through this time, hopefully with flying colors.  Movado’s position is to stay strong through these times, to be smart, and to come out the other end more successful than when they went in.

Written by Debbie. Posted in News, TAG Heuer, Watch Brands

TAG Heuer Pendulum Movement

Timekeeping has become an obsession for many of us, over the years.  The quest to tell time accurately and precisely has lead watch makers down a path of innovation and creation.  TAG Heuer is among the world’s leaders in innovative design and exploration of new and interesting ideas, with regard to keeping time.  This company has a well deserved reputation as a trailblazer in the industry.  For over 150 years TH has been searching for new and better ways to keep time, and this year they have released a revolutionary new concept watch, which will in time change the way watches are crafted, forever.  The TAG Heuer Grand Carrera Pendulum concept watch is the piece and what makes it so special is that the inner workings are based on a totally new and forward thinking system, which powers the timepiece.  The Pendulum watch is ingenuity at its finest.  TAG Heuer has used the principles of gravity and magnetism to build a completely new movement.  The Grand Carrera Pendulum has no electronic parts, and is powered by the gravitational pull of 4 specialized magnets, which create the torque necessary to move the balance wheel.   This is a steady and reliable source of power, which should remain constant for decades.  Leave it to TAG to re-invent the wheel!
