Montblanc Is The Most-Worn Watch At The 2018 Golden Globes
There was more than $20 million in watches and jewelry worn at last night's Golden Globe Awards. However, in the rundown of superb brands seen on the red carpet, just one stood out as being the single clear choice when it comes to watches: Montblanc.
In fact, while this brand had both jewelry and watches being worn by celebrities at the 75th annual event, it is the single brand whose watches was chosen above all others -- with 14 stars wearing nearly $110,000 in Montblanc timepieces (and cuff links).
Easily one of the more impressive timepieces, the Montblanc 4810 ExoTourbillon Slim was worn by actor Dwayne Johnson. Having starred in Baywatch, Fast & Furiousand Suicide Squad 2, "The Rock" also donned Montblanc Essential Sartorial cuff links. This $34,700 watch is one of the brand's top complications with a tourbillon escapement (that compensates for errors in timekeeping due to the effects of gravity when the watch is in certain positions on the wrist) visible from the dial side.
Additionally Hugh Jackman, who is also a Montblanc brand ambassador, wore the Montblanc Heritage Spirit Pulsograph watch (and Gold Knot Cuff links) to the Golden Globes, where he was nominated for best performance by an actor in a motion picture for “The Greatest Showman.” The $30,400 watch is a manually wound monopusher chronograph with pulsometer to measure heartbeats. The 41mm watch is crafted in 18-karat 5N rose gold and features a transparent sapphire caseback for viewing the movement.
Denzel Washington (who was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture-Drama for his role in Roman J. Israel ESQ, wore a subtle $3,340 Montblanc Star Classique watch. Similarly, actor Armie Hammer, nominated for best performance by an actor in a supporting role for “Call Me By Your Name,” wore the $4,300 Montblanc 4810 Dual Time watch -- another impressive piece from the brand's classic timepieces. He also wore Montblanc cuff links.
Bill Pullman wore the $12,800 Montblanc Heritage Spirit Perpetual Calendar, Kit Harrington (Game of Thrones) wore the $4,600 Montblanc Heritage Spirit Moonphase, actor William H. Macy (Shameless, Fargo, Magnolia) wore a Montblanc Tradition Automatic watch. Indeed the list goes on, with actors Joseph Fiennes, Garrett Hedlund, Sebastian Stan, Milo Venitmiglia, Austin Stowell, Nick Robinson and singer/actor Nick Jonas all donning Montblanc timepieces and/or cuff links.
