Ahead of the Academy Awards this Sunday and all the recent buzz around red carpet watches, we asked five watch enthusiasts what their ultimate grail watch and celebrity pair would be.
Adrienne Faurote, Fashion, Jewelry, & Watch Director at Haute Living
"I’m obsessed with Ana de Armas right now, so I would love to see her blinged out in Bulgari's new Divas’ Dream Mosaica blue sapphire!!"
Ryan Chong, Head of Watch Operations at Bezel
"I really wish James Bond wore Patek Philippe, so my grail celebrity watch pairing is Daniel Craig with a 5980/1A. That watch is sporty enough and dressy enough for him and every occasion."
Lindsey Hess, Remote Sales Concierge at Burdeen's
"I am so into Anne Hathaway’s style lately and she happens to have a big passion for watches...I’d love to see her in the A. Lange & Söhne Little Lange 1 Moon Phase with a gold flux dial (preferably no diamonds)."
Cam Wolf, Senior Style Writer at GQ
"I’d really like to see Paul Mescal exploit his, uh, friendship with Cartier more. He’s been wearing a Tank Must, which is a perfectly good watch, but if I were his stylist I’d be demanding the wackier end of the brand’s catalog. It would be so cool to see him in something like the new Masse Mystérieuse. I think I’d lose my mind if that happens. I would also accept the very cool (standard, yellow gold) Baignoire."
Jessica Neises, Assistant Fashion Editor at Vanity Fair
"I would love to see our Cartier king Austin Butler pull out an archival Crash as it feels very adjacent to the Hamilton Ventura he wore in Elvis"
Adam Crainiotes, Co-Founder of RedBar and Editor-At-Large at Revolution
"It’s no secret that Michelle Yeoh has a yen for Richard Mille, but here I’m looking squarely at her on-screen daughter, as portrayed by Best Supporting Actress-nominee, Stephanie Hsu, who would most definitely be rocking an RM 88 Smiley tourbillon as a nod to the chaos-loving, shape-shifting, yet ultimately redeemable villain, Jobu."
