No outfit is complete without accessories and what better way to accessorise than with a watch? Thankfully, there were plenty on display with more than a few grails in sight. As you might expect, the cheapest you will find on the list is a Cartier, so no Seiko’s unfortunately.
Trevor Noah – Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 5723/1R-001
It wouldn’t be a Hollywood red carpet without at least one appearance of a Nautilus while it would’ve been expected that it was Jay-Z not Trevor Noah. This isn’t just any Nautilus (are any of them really?) but a ultra-rare 18k gold Ref. 5723/1R-001. This originally retailed for $182,500 USD but is going for over $800,000 USD on the secondary market.
Pharrell Williams – Richard Mille RM 88 “Smiley”
This is just on brand right? The singer of “Happy” wearing the “Smiley”? Williams has stated a few times that he’s a huge fan of Richard Mille so it makes sense he was able to get his hands on this limited edition piece that gives off big Miami vibes. These go for around $3 million USD.
Kendrick Lamar – Rolex Oyster Perpetual
Of course we would see a turquoise dial at some point at the Grammys. They typically are the most sought-after models for plenty of watchmakers. Though other than the colour, Lamar actually kept his pick fairly low-key, along with his outfit. These sold for $21,900 USD.
Jack Harlow – Rolex GMT Master II
This one is a little difficult to see but you can’t see that flash of red to give it away as a “Pepsi.” Instead this is most likely a “Batman.” This watch is probably the best thing about Harlow’s outfit. This retails for $10,900 USD but you’ll find them on the secondary market for $20,000 USD.
DJ Khalid – Rolex “Eye of the Tiger”
In typical gaudy Dj Khalid fashion, here he is with the Rolex “Eye of the Tiger.” It’s a huge flex, but again that should also have been expected. This watch retailed for $215,000 USD.
Jay-Z – Patek Philippe ref. 6300G
Jay-Z has made it no secret that he absolutely loves watches and especially Patek Philippe’s. He’s one of the few to own the Tiffany blue Nautilus. Here he’s rocking a ref. 6300G Grandmaster Chime, a watch lover’s watch. This watch originally retailed for $2.2 million USD.
Lil Uzi Vert – Richard Mille RM 011 Flyback Chronograph “Felipe Massa”
Lil Uzi Vert claims to own one of the most expensive watches ever created, the Richard Mille pocket watch. He didn’t opt for it this time, but he did bring the RM 011 Felipe Massa edition. It’s unclear if he’s a racing fan or just loves the watch. Prices for these are $500,000 USD.
Rick Ross – Jacob & Co. Mystery Tourbillon
Rick Ross is rocking a Jacob & Co. Mystery Tourbillon on a red strap. Probably the most iced out watch at the 2023 Grammys, but that makes sense! He has to match his jacket right? These retail for $1.3 million USD.
