After two years of delay, the long-awaited Top Gun: Maverick is ready to hit the screens, and actor Tom Cruise was ready to rock the Cannes red carpet for the film’s premiere. The superstar received a rare five minutes-long standing ovation from the audience at the prestigious award show. Tom Cruise kept his outfit conservative yet stylish with a classic black tux and a tousled mane. But the focal point of his ensemble was the $120,000 watch from the Haute collection of the world’s oldest watchmaker! Read on to know more about the awesome watch and a few of its rarest and wildest competitors, donned by other celebrities.
Vacheron Constantin Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin Watch of Tom Cruise
Just like the actor, his prized watch is also versatile in character. This unique timepiece features a highly complex perpetual calendar movement system. This will display the correct time, date, day, month, year, and moon phase for the next 78 years, without requiring any single adjustment. In a nutshell, the truly evergreen watch will be perfectly accurate until the year 2100! That’s the watch fit for a megastar like Tom Cruise, right?
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Frosted Gold Double Balance-Wheel Openworked of Travis Scott
Just like its mouthful name, this watch is a complex work of art. Though it doesn’t have a complex mechanism like Tom Cruise’s watch, the surface is a sight to behold and the statement point of the watch! The frosted gold surface of the rainbow AP is truly worth a closer look. The unique frosty patina of the watch is created by pounding white gold with a specialized diamond-tipped tool. The result is thousands of tiny dents making the frosty patina on the surface. The openwork dial adds the touch of eccentricity to the artwork of a timepiece. An accessory worth cherishing and showing off!
Rolex Deepsea of Tiger Woods
The golfing star has long been loyal to his favorite timepiece, which is a top-tier diver’s watch from the brand. Just like Tom Cruise, the watch is perfect for a personality like Woods. The Rolex Deepsea is rated water-resistant to an astonishing 12,800 feet, and also famously traveled to the deep bottom of the ocean being attached to the submersible of James Cameron. Tiger Woods’ personal piece features the unique D-Blue dial, with a blue-to-black gradient shade, which is inspired by the gradual fading of light while descending underwater. An imaginative creation indeed!
