In our first Celeb Spotlight, we talked about the current king of watches - John Mayer. With him as a kick off, I knew I would need to find someone who packed a big punch to follow him up, but didn’t want to hit all the usual suspects right away...so this week, we’ll be talking about the Princess of Pop (because, let’s be honest, no one can top Beyoncé for that #1 spot), Rihanna. Believe it or not, the powerhouse Renaissance woman has a collection extensive enough to make any watch enthusiast jealous. From Piaget, to Rolex, to Chopard, she’s got something for every occasion.
We’ll start with her classic Rolex watches today. Her two-toned 31mm Ladies Datejust with diamond indices is a staple in her wardrobe and is her most photographed watch. This understated (and underrated) piece is versatile and classy - perfect for a night on the town or in the boardroom. Also in her Rolex lineup is a drool-worthy Everose Day-Date II. The 41mm President is at the same time powerful and stylish - a fitting choice for a boss like Rihanna.
Up next is one of her collection of Chopard watches. In 2017, RiRi was signed on as an ambassador for Chopard, and man, was that a great idea. She is a huge fan of the brand and even chose to sport an 18k White Gold Chopard decked out in 16cts of diamonds to a Savage X Fenty show - Rihanna’s design label housed under LVMH. More often seen than that, though, is her Happy Sport Blue Mother of Pearl Diamond Ladies watch.
Last but not least in today’s lineup is the most talked about watch she has been seen wearing. In 2008, Rihanna released the music video for “Take a Bow,” but all watch enthusiasts could talk about were the several gold Piaget watches she was wearing throughout the video. The most popular was the Yellow Gold Piaget Polo. The 18k mens watch is one of the most popular in their range, and Rihanna flawlessly sported it, proving that women can and do rock a mens watch!
Although she’s gone from Pop idol to successful HBIC in the boardroom, Rihanna flies under the radar for watch enthusiasts far too often. Maybe we should all pay closer attention to her moving forward!
