Luxury watches: Justin Bieber
This Canadian singer-songwriter’s covetable collection is a treasure for every watch connoisseur. “Enviable” is a word that comes to mind when looking at his collection. From Rolex to Audemars Piguet, Justin Bieber has quite a few classics in his watch wardrobe.
He wears a Rolex’s Day-Date II in yellow gold with a diamond bezel (41mm). How’s about a yellow gold Daytona with a yellow dial. Or a Datejust II with a charcoal diamond dial (41mm). And it doesn’t stop there. There’s also an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Automatic watch with a black dial (41mm).
Bieber’s choices, however, are not restricted to men’s luxury watches. He’ll wear women’s watches to make a style statement. Bieber wears his femininity on his sleeve with dainty timepieces like the Cartier Ballon Bleu in rose gold (42mm). He also wears the white gold Ballon Bleu Moonphase with a diamond bezel (37mm).
Luxury watches: Zayn Malik

Rose gold appears to be his top favourite shade for timepieces.
The One Direction star has an impressive repertoire of timepieces. Classic, vintage watches are a popular choice for him. The singer-songwriter has been spotted wearing a vintage Rolex Precision 4332 watch circa 1940-50s at many events.

Yet another Rolex watch in Harry Styles’ collection is the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date in yellow gold. Another favourite for Styles is the Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak watch (41mm) with an 18k pink gold clasp.
From high-end watches like Rolex to high-street designer brands like Michael Kors, Selena Gomez’s interest in horology is purely fashion-oriented. Once, at an event, the American singer and actor was gifted a Bondi Marble Peach watch by Australian watch designer Christian Paul.
Talk about impact. Gomez immediately put it on, and this action spiked the brand’s sales in the next few days! The Rolex Day-Date II Everose Gold watch makes an appearance quite regularly, too.
The American singer-songwriter took luxury watches to the next level by designing one of her own! Swift is a cat aficionado. One look at her Instagram feed will tell you that, Scroll through to see her three white cats Meredith Grey, Olivia Benson and Benjamin Button. So, naturally, her limited-edition watch had to reflect that. The watch features a turquoise strap and a steel round case. There is a white dial with a drawing of a cat’s face, and pink hands. Interestingly, the hour markings on the dial go from 3-13!
The unusual hour is chosen by Swift because 13 is her lucky number. The limited edition Taylor Swift Cat Wristwatch debuted in the singer’s official music video, You Need to Calm Down.
