It’s no secret that American trends are often influenced by those most in the public eye: celebrities. There are entire magazines dedicated to “who’s wearing who” and what the next seasonal trend will be.
Watches are not exempt.
In fact, celebrities who sport and collect luxury watches are often driving forces behind the popularity of watches.
In this blog, we’ve put together some images of celebrities wearing the luxury brands that we carry here at The Estate Watch & Jewelry Co. From singers to actors, from comedians to models, there is a wide range of brands to choose from. Take a look at the few we have selected here (and click on the photos to read more about these celebrity trends!).
John Mayer: Classic, Sleek Style with a Steel Rolex Submariner
This is a classic design from Rolex. Not only does the Submariner have a sleek look, but it is also practical. This is the classic diver watch–it is water resistant to 300 meters! If you’re looking for style with functionality, this could be the watch for you.
These watches typically retail for about $6,000, but you can get a used one in excellent shape for under $4000 at our store.
Sylvester Stallone: Punk Rock Glam with a Steel and Diamond Skull Jacob & Co.
Jacob & Co. watches often feature edgy style with some extreme diamond glam. From a skull and cross bone designs to cheetah and zebra prints in diamonds, this brand is definitely not for the conservative dresser. These watches make a statement with their bright colors and oversized design. Looking to get yourself noticed? This might be the watch brand for you!
These brands are often expensive, but you’ll know you’ll get great savings if you purchase a used one from us!
Jerry Seinfeld: Functionality and Class with a Steel Breitling Navitimer
Jerry Seinfeld is an avid Breitling collector. The watch he is wearing here is a Steel Breitling Navitimer with chronograph function that keeps track of elapsed time (perhaps helpful when he goes on stage!). Breitling watches are notorious for their fine movements and durability. It is the perfect everyday watch.
A Navitimer will cost you over $5,000 new, but we offer a great selection of contemporary and vintage models for a fraction of the cost.
Heidi Klum: Taking On the Oversized Watch Trend with a Panerai Luminor Marina
Heidi Klum is pictured here rocking the new trend of women wearing mens-sized watches. She couldn’t have picked a classier watch, either! She is wearing a man’s size stainless steel Panerai Luminor Marina. Measuring in at 40mm, this watch definitely stands out from typical women’s watch sizes (18-30mm usually). This chic watch is the perfect accessory for the woman who wants to make a statement.
The Panerai brand is Italian designed and Swiss made with only the most reliable and esteemed parts. This particular model goes for over $6,000 new, but like everything else, you can get a used one for a great price in our shop.
Sandra Bullock: Sparking New Trends with a White Ceramic and Diamond Chanel J12
The trend that Sandra Bullock started from wearing this watch in John Lee Hancock’s 2009 film The Blinside is undeniable. We have sold more Chanel watches in our store since this film came out than ever before. People walk in asking for “Sandra’s watch.” We can see why!
This white ceramic Chanel J12 with full diamond bezel and diamond dial is stunning. This watch is similar to other models from the Chanel line. They come in both white and black ceramic styles with or without diamonds. They retail from $6,000 to $16,000, but we can get you a used one for significantly less!
These five celebrities are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to watch trends in the United States. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions—or if we can help you find the used luxury watch of your dreams!
