Whether we admit it or not, many of us are curious about what celebrities wear. Given their near-bottomless bank accounts and access to the most exclusive brands, it’s fun to see what types of outfits stars choose when they’re out in the world. Plus social media now gives us a peek into what the rich and famous wear around the house, too. For some fans, it’s all about their favourite entertainer's clothes, shoes, and purses. But we’re particularly interested in what types of watches celebrities wrap around their wrists.

Rihanna rose to prominence as one of the most prolific and successful singers of this millennium, but it was her pivot to beauty and fashion mogul under her eponymous FENTY brand that attained her billionaire status in 2021. Whether strutting on the red carpet or grabbing groceries at Whole Foods, Rihanna always looks flawless. Her taste for taking fashion risks usually sets trends for the rest to follow.
Her taste in watches varies too. We've spotted Rihanna wearing classics like a two-tone Rolex Datejust and yellow gold Cartier Santos, gem-set jewelry watches like the Chopard Happy Sport, and epic sports watches like the Patek Philippe Nautilus in rose gold.

Thanks to her long-running starring role on ABC’s sitcom Modern Family, judging duties on America’s Got Talent, a bevy of movie appearances, and plenty of successful endorsement deals, Sofia Vergara was named Hollywood’s highest-paid actress in 2020 by Forbes.
This busy entertainer and businesswoman is also known for her glamorous style — and she’s often seen with a gorgeous watch. To complement her bold jewelry and colourful outfits, Vergara typically alternates between Rolex and Cartier timepieces. Some of our favourites in her collection include a yellow gold Rolex Daytona with a mother-of-pearl dial and a yellow gold Cartier Panthere watch with a brick-link bracelet.

Winner of Miss World in 2000, Priyanka Chopra turned her beauty pageant victory into a long resume of modeling, acting, and producing gigs. Along with being one of India’s highest-paid and most popular entertainers, she’s also making her mark in Hollywood, starring (and producing) in The White Tiger and the upcoming Matrix 4.
Priyanka Chopra is also a global fashion icon, often blending eastern and western styles to create her own look. She’s been seen wearing plenty of ultra-luxurious watches including a few gold Audemars Piguet Royal Oaks, as well as a dazzling Chopard Imperiale Joaillerie Rainbow, paved almost entirely in multi-coloured sapphires. Chopra was once an official brand ambassador for TAG Heuer, however, she recently signed on with Bulgari. As expected, it didn’t take long for her to step out with an iconic Bulgari Serpenti watch coiled around her arm.

For some, Victoria Beckham will forever be known as Posh Spice when she was one of the five members of the 90s pop music sensation, the Spice Girls. Others may know her as soccer superstar David Beckham’s wife but for the fashion-forward, Victoria Beckham is a style icon — complete with her own fashion label and beauty brand.
In addition to her signature oversized sunglasses and sharp tailoring, a luxury wristwatch is frequently part of Beckham’s ensemble. And not just any old watch, but some of the most collectible high-end timepieces ever made. Among others, she wears a vintage yellow Rolex Day-Date President with a turquoise “Stella” dial, a rose gold Rolex Daytona chronograph, and the most coveted of them all, a stainless steel Patek Philippe Nautilus sports watch.

From her early days on Ally McBeal to her roles in the Charlie’s Angels and Kill Bill movies to her voice acting in the Kung Fu Panda animated films, Lucy Liu’s three decades of work in the film industry was finally recognized in 2019 with her star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. These days you’ll find her behind the scenes too, directing or producing.
Both on-screen and off, Lucy Liu is recognized as one of Tinsel Town’s best-dressed, seamlessly pulling off sleek suits and whimsical couture gowns with ease. Wristwatch-wise, it seems the Elementary star is a fan of rectangular timepieces. In fact, she wears two of the most iconic rectangular watches ever made — the Cartier Tank and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso. The Cartier Tank comes in a variety of styles and hers is the chunky Tank Anglaise, which is characterized by an oversized rounded rectangular case that houses a hidden winding crown.
