5. Real Housewives
The Bravo reality series, which now includes affluent women from 7 different US cities, provided us with some of the greatest watch-spotting opportunities of 2012. In the era of Reality Television, just about anyone can reach “celebrity” status (Honey Boo Boo anyone?) but these ladies are the only ones still able to entice us to “watch” on.
4. Justin Beiber
Bieber might’ve been snubbed for a 2013 Grammy nomination but that doesn’t mean he didn’t earn high marks with the eRelyx team. We think 2012 saw a lot of growth from the Biebs, including his graduation from a Casio G-Shock to a real man’s watch- this gold Rolex Daytona.
3. Diane Kruger
Jaeger-LeCoultre celebrity ambassador Diane Kruger is one of the most diligent representatives of a luxury watch brand out there. We rarely see her walking a red carpet without a JLC timepiece on her wrist, and she’s even got her long-term boyfriend Joshua Jackson wearing Jaeger-LeCoultre as well, making Kruger one of our favorite celebs to watch in 2012.
2. Elle MacPherson
2012 was a good year for the Supermodel mom who landed a gig hosting NBC’s successful new series, Fashion Star, and was all over our red-carpet radar wearing a gold Rolex Daytona. We were certainly happy to get to see more of the stunning, ageless Elle and her equally timeless, great-looking watch (one of our favorites) out on the town together.
From start to finish, 2012 was pretty much Jay-Z’s year. January saw the birth of Blue Ivy Carter- the hip-hop mogul’s first child with wife, Beyonce, (and one of the most buzzed-about celebrity babies, maybe ever) and in December the self-proclaimed king of hip-hop received this diamond-crusted Hublot as a 43rd birthday gift from his queen. While Jay and B both say they’ll be retiring from the biz (we’ve heard that one before) in 2013- we sure hope they don’t stay away too long.
