The watch is the second thinnest in the world and is unmistakable as one of the most recognizable watches in the world. The statement-making watch comes in at just 1.75 mm thick, but still captures the attention of onlookers worldwide. Ben Simmons wore Patek Philippe Aquanaut Ref. 7968/300R featuring a gem-set rainbow bezel alongside a Mad Hatter-inspired big clock briefcase with his Thom Browne ensemble. Serena Williams stayed true to her all-gold outfit, wearing an Audemars Piguet Sandgold Royal Oak Flying Tourbillon Openworked Ref. 26735SG.OO.1320SG.01 to match. Michelle Yeoh, who stays true to her love of Richard Mille, wore the RM 07-01 with an iced-out bezel and green strap to match her silver dress and accessories. Jeff Goldblum stood out from the pack with a Tiffany Cocktail 2-Hand while co-chair Chris Hemsworth sported the Chopard Alpine Eagle.

Cartier was a popular choice amongst the attendees. Omar Apollo and Sebastian Stan wore different renditions of the highly-valued Cartier Crash while Donald Glover sported the Vintage Cartier Roadster, Steven Yuen in the Clash de Cartier, Dwyane Wade in the Cartier Santos and Jon Batiste accessorized with the Cartier Privé Tank Normale. The choice of classic Cartier watches speaks to the ongoing trend of wearing timeless icons to formal events, sweeping the industry season by season.

Ruby Billionaire while Rauw Alejandro was extra cold with the icy Jacob & Co. Ashoka Boutique Watch. Taika Waititi also wore the blinged-out Jacob & Co. Royal Tourbillon Baguette.
