“The Crown,” “The Queen’s Gambit,” and “Ted Lasso” may have won most of the awards at last night’s 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards show, but for us, it was Omega that scored “best watches” of the night.
After last year’s virtual award show, this year’s Emmy Awards marked the return to an in-person ceremony in downtown Los Angeles, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer. Celebs made the most of the moment by serving up red-carpet looks that begged the familiar questions of “who are you wearing.” In addition to the glamorous gowns and sharp suits, we couldn’t help but notice some fantastic luxury watches present at the Emmy’s too – most notably a trio of killer OMEGA watch timepieces.
O-T Fagbenle Omega Constellation Gents 41mm
Actor O-T Fagbenle, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama for “The Handmaid’s Tale” paired his modern red and black Agbada with an Omega Constellation Gents 41mm (ref. 22.214.171.124.01.001). Featuring a 41mm case in 18k yellow gold, this model is Omega’s newest iteration on the classic Constellation timepiece. While this contemporary Constellation retains signature design details such as “claws” and Roman numerals on the bezel, the watch also flaunts plenty of fresh updates like a sleek polished black ceramic bezel, rubber-lined black leather strap, and a new-generation Co-Axial Master Chronometer Caliber 8901 automatic movement.
Daveed Diggs Omega De Ville Prestige
Singer, songwriter, and actor, Daveed Diggs, was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for “Hamilton.” He accessorized his head-turning beaded pink and black Versace Couture tuxedo with a red-gold Omega De Ville Prestige (ref. 4126.96.36.199.52.002). To complement the brilliance of his look, Diggs opted for a diamond De-Vile piece, which flaunts both a full diamond-set bezel on top of the 39.5mm case and diamond-embellished Roman numerals on the silver sector-style dial.
Anthony Anderson Omega Constellation 39mm
Comedian, actor, and game show host, Anthony Anderson, was nominated for Best Actor in a Comedy for the ABC sitcom “black-ish.” He was also one of the most stylish of the night wearing a silk rose gold and black floral-print tuxedo jacket with a coordinating Omega Constellation 39mm (ref. 188.8.131.52.03.001) on his wrist. His watch is the full 18k Sedna gold model, from case to bezel to integrated bracelet. The sun-brushed blue dial pops against the rose-hued gold while the sapphire caseback allows a view of the latest Co-Axial Master Chronometer Caliber 8801 automatic movement powering the watch.
Whilst Omega sports watches like the Speedmaster and the Seamaster are often in the limelight, these well-dressed Emmy-award nominees illustrate that going for a dressier timepiece like a Constellation or a De Ville is often the right choice for formal wear.
