Reece James (Chelsea footballer) post training wearing a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Pink Candy Dial

Last but not least, there is nothing like pink on a confident man, and the swagger of England and Chelsea’s Reece James makes the candy-pop pink of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual a natural fit. Quite the baller, James merely underlines the street-cool of what only a few years ago would be marketed as a 36mm ladies’ watch, making Tiffany Blue yesterday’s news.

Some notable mentions

Elsewhere, boxing royalty Canelo Alvarez sported a not so subtle Jacob and Co piece – the not so catchy ‘Oil Pump Double Axis Tourbillon’. Let’s not even start the debate on whether this is a watch or not, this massive £285K piece of wrist-art is beyond the term. Hard-hitting Canelo rocks this massive timepiece like it was a Swatch, the 18K rose gold case framing a dial with a miniature, functional oil pump. Brash like its owner, and for some reason rather intriguing in its theatrical excess.

On to other royalty, the Brooklyn Beckham wedding was a veritable smorgasbord of wrist-delights, and not necessarily for the bling. Posh Spice’s papa, Anthony Adams, erred on the suave side of caution, ignoring the century-old rule of leaving your watch at home when wearing a tuxedo. What better choice than the French touch of an iconic and sleek Cartier Tank. And in the unlikely case of a billionaire celebrity father-in law throwing caution to the wind, Nelson Peltz has our deepest respect. If you love your sports watch, to hell with it, keep it on with the tux as a perfect counterpoint. Yes, that is really a Patek Philippe Aquanaut on a rubber strap, and Peltz Snr flaunts it as the rake he is.
