Everyone knows that celebrities are on the cutting edge of fashion. If they’re not setting the trends, then they’re closely following them, thanks to well-informed stylists, inside information and impossible access to the latest and greatest products. It’s not surprising then that some of the world’s most popular celebrities also wear some of the world’s most desirable luxury watches. Just for fun, we put together a list of some of our favourites. Enjoy!
