Hollywood is a place full of personalities who are avid watch collectors and enthusiasts. Our beloved actors often show off their favorite watches on their wrists on the red carpet. However, what we usually miss amidst the flashing lights and screaming fans is the type of watch they are wearing. Similar to our favorite actors, luxury watches have unique characteristics. They are known for their unique designs and exquisite craftsmanship.
Let’s have some fun and see which of our favorite Hollywood actors would be the luxury watch.
Al Pacino – Patek Philippe Nautilus
Alfredo James Pacino or Al Pacino was born on April 25, 1940 in New York City. Pacino attended the High School for the Performing Arts and eventually attended HB Studio, where he met acting teacher Charlie Laughton. He made his acting debut in the film “Panic in Needle Park”. Of course, he received major recognition in Flannix Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather”.
Considering Al Pacino’s status as an elite Hollywood actor, if it were to be a watch, it would be a Patek Philippe Nautilus. Just like the Hollywood actor, the Swiss watchmaker is regarded as the pinnacle of the watch industry. The Swiss watchmaker is one of the “trinity” of the Swiss Haute Horlogerie industry. Like Al Pacino, Patek Philippe has proven its mettle with numerous quality references and countless top designs.
Scarlet Johannsson – Bvlgari Serpenti Tubogas
Scarlet Ingrid Johannsson was born on November 22, 1984 in New York City. Of Polish and Russian Jewish descent, Johannsson attended the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute as a child and then attended the Professional Children’s School (PCS), a private educational institution for aspiring child actors later in Manhattan. Her first leading role was as Amanda in Manny & Lo (1996).
Anyone who knows Scarlett Johansson knows that this dazzling diva is an actor’s gem. Her glamorous and sophisticated approach on and off the red carpet is impressive, to say the least. If she were to be any watch, it would have to be the Bulgari Serpenti Tubogas.
Robert De Niro – Audemars Piguet Royal Oak
Starting with Al Pacino, Robert De Niro found his rightful place in the film industry with such films as “The Godfather Part II,” “Taxi Driver,” “Casino” and “Goodfellas. The master performer was a powerhouse of the 1970s and 1980s. Even today, De Niro no longer surprises us with his performances on the big screen. The most recent example is “The Irishman” directed by Martin Scorsese.
If there is any luxury watch with as much glamour and poise as this legendary American actor, it would be the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak.
Bradley Cooper – IWC Portugieser Chronograph
Bradley Cooper has shown his acting skills on the big screen more times than we can remember. Whether it was the “Hangover” movies, “Silver Linings Playbook” or “A Star Is Born,” Cooper did a great job.
Consider that the luxury watch that best describes Bradley Cooper is the one he endorses. This is the IWC Portugieser, a very simple timepiece that is one of the most iconic watches you will ever see.
Henry Cavill – Omega Seamaster Diver 300M
Henry Cavill almost immortalized himself by portraying Superman, the most popular superhero of all time, which is no easy task. The actor perfectly portrayed the inner conflict and dark side of the ever-smiling, cape-clad superhero. The British actor also played Sherlock Holmes in “Enola Holmes” and Jellot in “The Witcher” as Livia.
For an actor as masculine and manly as Cavill himself, no other watch would work. It had to be something that exuded sophistication but at the same time showed enough toughness. The only luxury timepiece that fits the picture is the Omega Seamaster Diver 300 M. Also represented by James Bond, this watch is the perfect definition of a watch juxtaposed with unfathomable functionality.
Gal Gadot – Cartier Tank
Gal Gadot’s first Hollywood film role came in the form of “Giselle Yashar” in the 2009 blockbuster “The Fast and the Furious”. This role opened the door to global stardom for the Israeli actress. Her most popular role to date has to be Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe film directed by Renegades filmmaker Zack Sneider.
If Gal Gadot were a luxury watch, it would have to exhibit unparalleled elegance. It must have a rich history and be multi-faceted, like the Cartier Tank. The Tank is known to be a timepiece that exudes the mysticism for which Gal Gadot is known. Moreover, it expresses class in a way that remains unparalleled in the world of Haute Horlogerie.
