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.

1. Jay-Z

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.



Kyle Richards Wears a Cartier Panther Watch

We’ve blogged about Kyle Richards and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills multiple times – not surprisingly, they love watches.

Kyle Richards showed up to the 19th Annual Night at Sardi’s in Beverly Hills the other day rolling with a gold Cartier Panther.  Classy and subtle.  Check out pictures below – and click on the thumbnails for larger images.

The Watches of Bravo’s “Real Housewives”

Bethenny Frankel is just one of the few Reality stars to make The Hollywood Reporter’s Top 100 Women in Entertainment list this year, and at this morning’s honorary breakfast, we spotted Frankel wearing her trusted Cartier Ballon Bleu.

So, in a moment of retrospection- we dug back through the eRelyx blog and revisited some on the other famous Housewives of Bravo TV who, like Bethenny, know a thing or two about luxury watches.

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.


Beverly Hills Housewives love watches

It’s probably not surprising to anyone who knows Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” that these women would love nice watches- from Cartier on the wrists of Camille, Kyle & Kim to Kyle’s vintage gold Rolex Daytona & Lisa’s blinged-out Franck Muller. Check out our gallery of these beautiful ladies wearing some truly fabulous watches below, and shop similar styles (& more!) at


Celebrity Watch: April 11

This week’s favorite celebrity-watch-photo-find: She might not have won last week’s eRelyx  ”who wore it best?” contest- but we still think Julianne Hough makes the Cartier Ballon Bleu even hotter. This pic of the starlet taken at a gala held over this past weekend is our favorite celebrity-watch-photo-find of the week. We love the way her watch takes center stage and the gold plays off the gold of her gorgeous mini dress. Since our first sighting of the starlet wearing the stunning watch, we’ve been unable to find her photographed without it- Does it have some sentimental value perhaps? A gift from beau Ryan Seacrest? We’re wondering…

Minka Kelly was sighted out and about in her go-to Rolex Datejust while Matthew McConaughey represents Tag Heuer- wearing the Carrera model during filming for his latest movie project “The Lincoln Lawyer.”

Charlize Theron rocks what we believe to be a black ceramic Dior watch (Theron is a spokesmodel for the brand) while out shopping and Aunt to Paris & Nicky Hilton/Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, Kyle Richards flashes an oversized gold statement-making watch on the red carpet in Vegas.

We also sighted everyone’s favorite funny lady- Betty White- at a lunch held in her honor wearing a very classic and conservative timepiece we have yet to identify.
