Luxury Top Watches From the 93rd Academy Awards
After more than a year of digital parties and postponed events, in-person gatherings are finally starting to resume in some parts of the world, with the 93rd Academy Awards taking place last night, a live event unlike any other. The event was held at multiple locations due to security precautions, but as you would expect at any gathering of Hollywood's hottest A-list celebrities, there were plenty of eye-catching luxury fake watches to be seen on the wrists of those in attendance.
In addition to reverting to a live broadcast format, organizers of this year's Oscars insisted that the ceremony adhere to traditional Oscar refractions and glamour, and encouraged guests to wear formal attire, described in a letter sent out by the producers as "a blend of inspiration and desire. Given these dress code guidelines, you can be assured of some truly outstanding timepieces showing up at the event, and here's a closer look at a few of our favorite standouts.
Another Oscar winner of the night was spotted wearing a stunning luxury watch: American singer-songwriter H.E.R., who won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Fight for You" from Judas and the Black Messiah. Throughout the evening, H.E.R. was seen wearing a Rolex Lady-Datejust President, which is not the first time the Grammy-winning artist has worn the watch.
Earlier this year, when two more awards were added to her Grammy collection, H.E.R. wore the same Lady-President, a watch that has been seen on her wrist in countless concerts and interviews over the past few years. As such, the watch definitely looks like it was part of her personal collection and not provided by a stylist specifically for this event.
The overall aesthetic of the fake Rolex watch is very much in line with the core design of the original Constellation Manhattan model that debuted in the 1980s. However, the use of black ceramic and the updated font of Roman numerals on the bezel bring a thoroughly modern feel to this iconic Omega design - a perfect match for Leslie Odom Jr.'s striking gold suit.
Rolex is a major supporter of the Oscars, and given that the brand is the single most famous manufacturer of luxury watches in the world, it was only natural to see at least some Rolex watches at the Oscars.
