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 – 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 – 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.

Designer Watches at Discount Prices

Written by Debbie. Posted in Fashion Watches

What could be better? A brand new, never worn, designer watch at a price you can afford from top brands like Breitling, Bvlgari and TAG Heuer to Cartier watches, Gucci watches and Michele watches.cartier watches

Breitling typically makes men’s watches; with large faces and complex functions, these are known as “instruments for professionals”, specifically for aviation pilots. However, for the woman with an adventurous spirit there are Breitling women’s watches as well, like the Windrider Starliner that comes with diamonds.

Bvlgari needs little introduction or description. Any fan of Italian luxury goods will know and love Bvlgari. The great thing about Bvlgari watches is that almost every single one comes with the well-known Bvlgari bezel, making it a true designer watch in every way. Whether you’re talking Assioma, Diagono or Rettangolo, these styles are guaranteed winners.

Another brand which needs little explanation is Cartier. Cartier watches are by far some of the most continually sought after watches in the industry. Cartier men’s watches are popular among both sexes and with their balance between power and style, can be worn whenever, wherever. Even if you are not that familiar with watch names, there is little doubt that you’ve heard of the Santos, the Pasha or the Tank.

TAG Heuer carreraGucci watches are yet another hot buy and go for less than a Bvlgari or Cartier watch, making them a great buy. For women especially, Gucci offers so many styles to choose from, many of them being jewelry watches which gives the wearer the added benefit of owning a watch that also looks like a fine piece of jewelry.

Speaking of “for the ladies”, Michele watches are watches made for the woman that is bold, confident and not afraid to show it. Michele watches are classy and sexy and with their easily interchangeable bands, can be worn from work to a hot date and make you look great.

TAG Heuer watches are for those that want to look good and wear a watch that can withstand some serious heat. Promoted and worn by some of the world’s top athletes, TAG watches are always a winning choice.

Zenith Opens First Middle East Boutique

Written by Debbie. Posted in Zenith

The word in the luxury watch business is: head to the Middle East! Following recent news that TAG Heuer opened yet another location in the Middle East (marking a total of eight points of sale), Zenith Watches has officially inaugurated its third and biggest boutique in the Arab world.Zenith logo

During the opening ceremony the CEO and President of Zenith Watches, Mr. Jean-Frederic Dufour, declared, “Zenith has had a great influence on the luxury segment since its inception in 1865. The brand was instrumental in developing the watch industry and succeeded in achieving 170 patents and winning 1500 prizes for the precision of its watches. Zenith is part of LVMH, the leading luxury group in the world. This 1st Zenith boutique in the Middle East is a new strategic step in the development and success that the brand is implementing”.
Another claim to fame that not all luxury watch brands can make, but that Zenith can, is that it is its own “manufacturing company”, meaning that it conceives, manufactures and assembles all its own movements in its workshop in Switzerland. The two mechanical movements for which the company is most known for is the Elite (standard movement) and the El Primero (chronograph movement).

Zenith boutiqueZenith watches marry technical skill and performance with spectacular style. Their luxury women’s watches really show this; collections like Star Love, Star Rock, Star Sea and Starissime are gorgeous watches with unbelievably unique designs. If you want to be different and not wear what everyone else does, go with a Zenith women’s watch.

Their men’s collections like the ChronoMaster, Defy Classic and Defy Extreme are examples of how Zenith creates strong, unique looks for men’s watches, merging power with precision and style.

The new Zenith boutique will be in the Dubai Mall and “reveals a new exclusive concept of the Zenith boutique generation and represents the essence of the brand in its design and the use of sophisticated materials and luxurious displays. On entering the Zenith boutique, a warm and contemporary environment has been created using the color brown (Zenith’s color of choice as seen in its logo).

The Noramis Collection by Union Glashütte

Written by Debbie. Posted in News

Union Glashütte is a German luxury watch brand that is very German, so to speak. Although part of the internationally acclaimed Swatch Group, the Union Glashütte website is only in German, so makes it hard to read about their watches.

Find out about their Noramis collection, the first one that includes both men’s and women’s watches. They are simple designs that focus on what watches should do: tell time.union-glashutte-noramis

The dial is simply structured and the numbers are easy to read. The curve of the dial gives the watch some depth and highlights the slight shimmer of the sunburst finish. The tapered indices and pointed hour and minute hands give the watch a classy, understated look. Different versions of the watch with the collection offer contrasting colors like silver against black and rose gold accents against a silver background.  The bezel is simple and non-distracting, while the lugs are rounded and made from stainless steel. Straps are either brown or black leather with crocodile grain or stainless steel. The men’s version of the Noramis watch comes in a 40mm case and the women’s in a 34mm. On the women’s version, the black dial is decorated with ten diamonds.

The Noramis watches have power reserves of 42 hours and a screwed-on sapphire crystal back allows the wearer to view the automatic movement. The rotor bears the “skeletonized” brand lettering and is decorated with the Glashütte stripe finish. All watches are water-resistant to 100 meters.

Known as the “poor man’s L.U.C. Chopard Slim” the Noramis looks and acts like a Chopard but at a fraction of the price, making it a good buy. They are similar in looks but not in price. While the Chopard L.U.C. Slim sells for about $20,000 the Noramis goes for about $1,500.

The Noramis collection or any other watch by Union Glashütte is not that easy to find in the U.S. but online everything is possible.
