Daniel Kaluuya took home the Academy Award for actor in a supporting role for his portrayal of Illinois Black Panther Party Chairman Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah. On his wrist for the Oscars, the 32 year old Kaluuya, who attended with his mother and sister, had the Santos de Cartier replica with skeleton dial.
A modern skeleton that uses its movement architecture to depict Roman numerals, this manually wound Santos is a classic choice, but with a little something extra to it. This is Kaluuya’s first Oscar win and his second nomination. Last time he was up for an Oscar he wore an IWC.
Charles D. King, producer of Judas and the Black Messiah, wore a cushion-shaped Piaget that to our eyes looked like the black leather strap copy Piaget Polo Emperador Skeleton Tourbillon. Ultra-thin watchmaking tends to come to mind when most folks think of Piaget, but the company’s longstanding expertise in jewelry and gem-setting are also on display in this piece, a skeletonized automatic tourbillon with its micro rotor visible from the dial side. It’s a high-quality replica watch with a real wow factor and one that’s particularly well suited to the red carpe.
