Who Wore What: Watches At Oscars 2016Written by Alvin Wong
Spotlight shone. Leo won. And Mad Max went bonkers. But all we thought about were what watches the stars wore. This is what we've gathered so far.
Because he is smart and unfussy like that, the German-Irish actor stayed classy and old-school with Chopard’s slim and elegant L.U.C XPS in 18K white gold case.
Good on Spotlight star Ruffalo for raging against pedophile priests at pre-Oscars show! And thumbs up too, for his eye-snapping outfit, made more regal with Montblanc’s Heritage Spirit Perpetual Calendar Sapphire.
Legend rocked a fail-safe tux and took no chances with the equally pared-down Bulgari Solotempo three-hand watch, in stainless steel case, no less.
Could it be that action star Renner is getting, erm, way more action that his peers? After-party in another time zone, perhaps? Either way, he is well equipped with Montblanc’s Heritage Chronometrie Dual Time.
The man whipping the evening's dark horse, director-writer Tom McCarthy, took home the Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for surprise winner Spotlight. Accompanying him onstage to share his moment was Jaeger-LeCoultre’s hardy and no-nonsense Geophysic True Second watch.
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
