Watches Spotted on the Stars at Met Gala, 2022

Met Gala 2022 was not short of the usual glitz, glamour and drama it has come to be associated with every year. The glamorous ladies led the pack with always-in-news Kim Kardashian who wore the $4.8 million shimmering gown of Marilyn Monroe, Blake Lively with her Versace tiered dress inspired by Architecture and classic buildings of New York and our own Natasha Poonawalla who managed to mix Schiaparelli and Sabyasachi to create a dramatic effect in her costume.

The men of the Met Gala added their own share of excitement to the event not so much with their clothes but with some supremely gorgeous wrist watches.

Ryan Reynolds with Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch Moonshine Gold – Not to be left behind his gorgeous wife Blake lively, Ryan who is known for his killer wit in real life left us open jawed with his unusual reel-life superhero portrayal of Deadpool. His incredible good looks and sense of timeless style goes hand in hand as seen in his chosen wristwear which was an Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch in Moonshine gold.

The classic Moonwatch by Omega is one of the most iconic and laureled chronograph watches in history. It is forever intertwined with the Apollo space missions, the moon landing and NASA.  Moonshine gold is composed of 75% gold, 14.5% silver, about 9% copper and 1% palladium. The case is 42mm diameter in full 18k Moonshine gold with brushed and polished 18k Moonshine gold bezel and with a black or green ceramic insert. It has a 18k Moonshine gold crown and pushers and a box-type sapphire crystal with AR-coating as well as a 18k Moonshine gold caseback with flat sapphire crystal. The dial is 18k Moonshine gold and has Super-LumiNova insert, polished central chronograph hand and polished sub-dial hands. Movement is Omega Calibre 3861, made in-house. The other features are hand-wound column-wheel chronograph, antimagnetic to 15,000 Gauss ,26 jewels, 50 hours power reserve, and chronograph with a 12h and 30min counter. Strap is a full 18k Moonshine gold bracelet with folding clasp

Jack Harlow with Rolex Sky-Dweller – If you ask ‘What’s Poppin’ about Jack Harlow, then the answer is everything. To be barely 24 and be the top-of-the-chart rapper, hip hop artist and songwriter while capturing the imagination of a huge fan following, this young american has done it all! We can say he is ‘First Class’ even in his choice of wrist wear.

The oyster perpetual sky-dweller in oyster steel and white gold comes with a bright black dial and a jubilee bracelet. This distinctive watch is characterised by its second time zone display on an off-centre disc on the dial. Furthermore, its innovative system for setting the functions, using the rotatable Ring Command bezel, is unique to Rolex. A fixed inverted red triangle on the dial points to the chosen reference time on the off-centre 24-hour disc. At a glance, this 24-hour display clearly distinguishes daytime hours from night-time hours in the other time zone. A deep red rectangle in one of the 12 windows around the dial indicated the current month, a striking characteristic of the Saros annual calendar. This ingenious mechanism simplifies life for the wearer of the watch, who no longer needs to think about adjusting the date at the end of a 30-day month. The annual calendar displays the correct date through the year. The diameter is 42 mm and the material is white rolesor. The other features are a dial which is a combination of oyster steel and white gold, fluted bezel, bidirectional rotatable Rolex ring command, the winding crown screw-down, the crystal scratch-resistant sapphire, cyclops lens over the date and a water resistance of up to 100 metres and power reserve of approximately 72 hours.

Jeremy Strong with Hublot Classic Fusion Bronze – He wowed us as Kendall Roy in Succession. Treading the narrow line of being an eccentric narcissist and being the obsessed-about-success scion of a media conglomerate, Kendall will always be an unforgettable fictional character. Jeremy wore a Hublot Classic Fusion Bronze to the gala which would have surely made Kendall proud.

The model size is 45 mm and comes with a brushed bronze case and bezel. The water resistance is 50 metres. The crystal is Sapphire with anti-reflective treatment and the dial is in sunray brown. The movement is HUB1112 self-winding and comes with a 48-hr power reserve. The strap is brown alligator with brown stitching on black rubber and clasp is black brushed bronze and black plated stainless steel deployment buckle clasp. 

Regé-Jean Page with Longines  DolceVita – Page broke the hearts of many girls, when as Duke of Hastings he courted and married Daphne in the much-celebrated Bridgerton Season 1. His style in real life is as classy as that of the dashing duke. For the Met Gala, he chose to wear a Longines DolceVita.

Since its inception, the Longines DolceVita collection has illustrated contemporary elegance of the Longines watchmaking brand worldwide. Inspired by the "Dolce Vita", it is an homage to the sweetness of life. Movement is quartz with a small second feature and L176 calibre. Case size of 23.3 mm and thickness of 7.2 mm. Case shape is rectangular and the material is steel with a lug width of 17 mm and the glass material is sapphire crystal. Dial colour is silver and has a water resistance of 30 metres.

Pete Davidson with Rolex Datejust – Exactly like his lady love Kim Kardashian, Pete’s life is never devoid of drama. The American comedian from his great stint in Saturday Night Live to being the nonchalant recipient of Kanye’s wrath for dating his wife, handles his life with humour and aplomb. His choice of watch was a classy Rolex Datejust.

This oyster perpetual DateJust 41 in oyster steel and white gold features a bright blue dial and an oyster bracelet. The light reflections on the case sides and lugs highlight the elegant profile of the 41 mm Oyster case, which is fitted with a fluted bezel. Aesthetically, the Datejust has spanned eras, while retaining the enduring codes that make it. The dial is the distinctive face of a Rolex watch, the feature most responsible for its identity and readability. Characterised by hour markers fashioned from gold to prevent tarnishing, every Rolex dial is designed and manufactured in-house, largely by hand to ensure perfection. The Rolex fluted bezel is a mark of distinction. Over time, the fluting became an aesthetic element, a genuine Rolex signature feature. The winding crown is screw-down, crystal is scratch-resistant sapphire, cyclops lens over the date and it is waterproof to 100 metres. The movement is perpetual, mechanical, self-winding, calibre is 3235, manufactured by Rolex, the winding is bidirectional self-winding via perpetual rotor and the model has a power reserve of approximately 70 hours.
