On Trend: The Oversized Watch

We love the look of a man’s watch on a woman, and if there’s anything we’ve learned in our months of celeb-stalking, it’s that Hollywood agrees. It’s been a hot look for a while now, and, as the following feature (see below) from the September Issue (only the most important issue in the fashion magazine universe) of InStyle illustrates, the oversized watch trend is far from being just a fad.

Check out some of eRelyx’s favorite leading ladies working it in some large watches-

The favorite oversized watches of the celebs above? Anything by Rolex- including the Rolex Datejust, President, Daytona & Submariner and, from Cartier, the largest size of the popular Ballon Bleu model.


2011 ESPY Awards

We know that athletes LOVE watches.  However, we usually see them in uniforms.  And unless you’re Rafael Nadal or Phil Mickelson, those uniforms don’t typically include expensive luxury watches.

So, the best chance to spot athletes in their best get-ups and luxury watches is at the ESPY Awards, held every year in California.  Check out a few of the athletes looking their best – complete with Rolex and other custom watches.  We threw in a few other celebrities at the end that are looking good, even without watches.  Hopefully they complete their looks with a nice watch next year!  (Click on the thumbnails for larger images)

Going With It

Adam Sandler’s newest movie “Just Go With It” might be lacking laughs but its certainly not lacking in hot chicks who wear hot watches.

Blonde Beauties, Brooklyn Decker and Jennifer Aniston turned up to the Berlin and Madrid photo-calls for the movie in big, bold, gold watches. Aniston (an eRelyx regular at this point) was wearing that same gold Rolex (a supposed gift from ex-beau John Mayer…) we’ve blogged about many times before.

Decker wore what appears to be a very similar style, although, from the angle she’s standing at its hard to be certain exactly what brand/model it is- could be a Rolex Day-Date with a president bracelet- if you have a better guess, let us know!

Meanwhile, Sandler was the odd-man-out in the trio. Having opted not to “go with it” (the gold watch trend that is), we were left wondering how the heck he got between two of the hottest starlets in Hollywood…

Recap of 2010 ESPY Awards

Last night, Los Angeles hosted the 2010 ESPY Awards – or, as most people like to call the event, the Watch Watching Super Bowl. Athletes and entertainers in one place at the same time. Jackpot.

The event did not disappoint. There were some great luxury watches on display. As I watched the event, I got excited thinking about all of the great watch pictures that my photo agency would surely capture. Boy was I disappointed this morning. All they got were pictures like this:

It’s like they don’t even know what us guys want to see. We want to see luxury watches. Naturally, I was prepared. I sent my trusty photographer, B. Berry, to the event to take pictures of the hottest watches of the night. Berry did not disappoint. He took these great images of Jeremy Shockey and Evan Longoria wearing jaw-dropping wrist clocks. Check them out:

Those guys don’t walk into the local watch store and pick up any old Rolex, Panerai, IWC, or Zenith. They hunt around for something unique and expensive. That way, no one will show up wearing the same watch (embarrassing). I can’t tell you what brands they’re wearing, but I can assure you that those watches are expensive.
