Welcome to Watches of the Week, the place we’ll monitor the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches noticed on celebrities.
Add yet one more to the numerous causes to stan Rihanna: she’s made watches an important aspect of her being pregnant journey. When she introduced her first being pregnant final January, she wore one in every of Rolex’s rarer and extra uncommon fashions, the pointed King Midas, which is impressed by the Parthenon temple of Athena in Greece (the truth that the watch is throughout my Instagram feed a 12 months later doesn’t really feel like a coincidence). Final month, throughout the Tremendous Bowl halftime present wherein she teased her child bump, she wore a scarlet Jacob & Co. Sensible Skeleton Northern Lights. And this week, Rihanna wore a totally totally different watch, the Rolex Day-Date, whereas out in Los Angeles with A$AP Rocky.
The Day-Date has by no means regarded cooler—an impact Rihanna has on most of the clothes and niknaks she wears. Most famously related to presidents like Lyndon Johnson, the Day-Date clearly advantages from Rihanna’s edge. Slightly than sliding it below a go well with, she reveals it off alongside her tattoos and the bump poking out from beneath her Loewe crop high.
Stainless-steel sport watches have change into all-occasion items, pulled from on a regular basis put on into formal costume. Rihanna makes an excellent argument that we should always really be doing the alternative: carrying costume watches whereas operating errands.
Rolex is Rihanna’s model of alternative, and she or he’s a fan of the Day-Date specifically. This mannequin, which has a gold case and champagne dial, seems to be a bit she has owned for years.

She additionally owns a uncommon model in pink gold, which is made particularly distinctive by its “Oyster” bracelet. (The Day-Date is so related to its commonplace “President” bracelet that nearly everybody is aware of the watch by that nickname.)
Daniel Kaluuya’s Vacheron Constantin Abroad Chronograph
Kaluuya’s watch combines two parts that by no means miss. First is Vacheron Constantin, which has by no means completed a pink carpet attendee fallacious (see final week’s Oscars for proof of that).

That is really Doncic’s third variation of the Royal Oak, which he owns in gold-on-gold and white gold with a salmon-colored dial. Someway, the white-gold blue-dial model he wore this week is essentially the most modest of the bunch. Doncic is at present making an attempt to come back again from damage and assist the Mavericks safe a playoff spot, which could clarify the brand new timepiece. Once I’m sick, I additionally scroll by means of webshops searching for a brand new watch to purchase as somewhat pick-me-up.
