Watches were one of the focal points of conversation among the red carpet looks in this year’s Golden Globes.
The 81st Golden Globes marked the start of this year’s awards season, and as the entirety of Hollywood (along with film and pop culture aficionados worldwide) awaited the announcement of the winners, a certain anticipation was built around the looks that appeared on the red carpet.
There were odes to old Hollywood glamor, character recreations, and shimmering elegance that preface what would seemingly be recurring trends throughout the year. But away from the striking ensembles that graced the event, attention was diverted to the accessories that complemented them—particularly the timepieces seen on the attendees’ wrist.
OMEGA seemed to be the watch of choice for most, as a handful of this year’s best dressed picks sported the Swiss brand. Here’s a look at some of them:
Cillian Murphy, one of the night’s big winners as the recipient of this year’s Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture under the Drama category for his role in Oppenheimer, suited up in a classic black Saint Laurent tuxedo styled by Rose Forde. Murphy looked every bit of the dapper man he is as he paired the fit with a 40 mm OMEGA De Ville Trésor in Sedna™ Gold on a leather strap.
Irish actor Barry Keoghan, who earned a Golden Globes nod with a nomination under the same category as Murphy, completed his “punk rock” getup with a 34 mm OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra in Sedna™ Gold. Its diamond-set bezel case and diamond encrusted-dial, made with over 498 jewels, was reminiscent of the extravagance displayed in Saltburn; which Keoghan was nominated for. The marquise-cut red rubies seen on the indexes at each hour also matched his custom red plaid Louis Vuitton suit.
Will Ferrell’s comedic award presentation, together with Kristen Wiig, at this year’s ceremony wasn’t the only thing that grabbed people’s attention. While he had everyone, even Matt Damon, in tears during his bit, the actor and comedian was the talk of the town as he strutted in with a 42 mm OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M in Titanium. The watch is akin to what Daniel Craig wore as James Bond in the 2021 film No Time To Die, and Ferrell certainly looked the part as he paired the watch with a crisp white suit.
Charles Melton drew global praise for his role in the drama film May December, which earned him plenty of nominations including a nod for Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture at this year’s Golden Globes. For his red carpet look, Melton went the classic route with a navy blue Giorgio Armani suit. His suave ensemble was completed with a 40 mm OMEGA De Ville Trésor in steel on a leather strap seen on his wrist as he walked the carpet together with his mom.
