Whether you prefer a classic design or a stunning showstopper, celebrities have been an inspiration for many years when it comes to fashion.
From diamond divas to sporty figures, watches are one of the most popular accessories a lady can wear.
In this article, we are going to have a look at some iconic women over history, and the watches they loved to wear.
Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend!
Who doesn’t love a diamond? Sadly, not everybody has the bank balance to afford them, apart from celebrities of course! Tennis star, Serena Williams, can often be seen ‘sporting’ a glamourous Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Timepiece. This stunning watch is packed with diamonds.
Then there is superstar Rhianna who prefers the Bulgari Serpenti Incantati, Italian for ‘enchanting snakes’. The snake has been included within the design, and coils around the watches dial. The Serpenti has a quartz movement and a 30mm, 18kt rose gold case with excellent cut diamonds and rubellites.
One of our favourites was owned by the beautiful Princess Diana. She was gifted an elegant Vacheron Constantin Diamond Bracelet Watch by her mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty received the timepiece from the Swiss federal Republic back in 1947 as a wedding gift.
For those who want to grab some attention, wearing a big gold bracelet will guarantee that. Let’s look at Grace Kelly! She was often seen wearing the petite 26mm, yellow gold Rolex Lady Datejust. First debuted back in 1926, the watch hasn’t lost its appeal.
Jennifer Aniston, who let’s face it, can get away with wearing almost anything, often wears a Rolex Day-Date. This particular design has a 36mm case diameter. Constructed from 18k yellow gold, it features a President bracelet and Champagne dial.
Most celebrities find themselves constantly ‘on the go’. An example is the former First Lady Michelle Obama. Often travelling around the world, Obama needed a reliable, yet stylish watch.
She often opted for the Cartier Stainless Steel Tank Francaise. Obama even wore the Cartier in her official White House portrait. The first tank watch design dates back to 1917 and was a tribute to Allied forces in Europe. The links in the bracelet represent the strong and powerful tracked vehicles that were used.
Celebrities often find themselves in front of a camera, even when caught off guard. For some, they like to look great at all times, especially those who are fashion conscious. Keira Knightley is often seen looking glamourous. In this picture, she is wearing the Chanel J12 which is white, features a highly resistant ceramic, steel case and a steel unidirectional rotating bezel. Not only an elegant timepiece but also sporty.
Margot Robbie is wearing the Richard Mille Ladies Automatic. This design features mechanical perfection with curvaceous lines on the case. It is one of the smallest from the collection, with a pretty gemstone set centre field.
