One thing that sets famous people apart from the rest of society, other than their fame, is the wealth that goes with it. But they don’t always flaunt this in public.
Aside from the cars famous people drive or the clothes they wear, their choice of wristwatch is revealing. Especially when they aren’t “brand ambassadors” being handsomely paid to sell a product.
When they appear in various types of media, you can see the watches celebrities choose to wear.
