Whether it’s laughing at your 105th rewatch of Withnail and I or crying while reading his memoir, A Pocketful of Happiness, Richard E Grant is a man who can make you feel things. While hosting the 2023 Baftas this week, he did so once again, getting visibly upset while presenting the traditional In Memoriam segment of the show.
Back in 2019, on rapper Scroobius Pip’s Distraction Piece Podcast of all places, Grant bonded with the host over their mutual quirk of strapping two Swiss made replica watches on at the same time, and disclosed exactly why he does it. Grant’s late father passed down his Breitling Navitimer to him as a gift – exactly the kind of heirloom we all hope for. Except somehow, Grant misplaced the watch. He was so devastated, Grant’s wife Joan Washington took it upon herself to replace the watch with another special piece from her. This was a Cartier Tank, as iconic and popular as the perfect CA fake Breitling Navitimer watches. Then, as if fate intervened, Grant found his father’s pilot’s watch, and ever since then he’s continued to wear both.
He wears his father’s watch on his left hand, which tells the correct time for wherever he is in the world. On his right wrist, the cheap replica Cartier Tank watches is set to Swaziland time, which is where Grant was born and has relatives, so he feels like he’s across both timezones. It’s a static reminder of where he’s from, he said to Pip. “It’s sentimental and practical,” he added.
The fact that Grant’s wife died in 2021 makes the tribute all the more moving, and reminds us that the emotional attachment we can attach to things is powerful. His story was the horological highlight of the awards, but there was other notable wrist candy on show. Here are a few trends we spotted during the biggest night in British entertainment.
Rectangular is the new round
Umm, so when did rectangular become the new official unofficial dress copy watches for sale of choice? Young guns Paul Mescal and Regé-Jean Page showed class and their appreciation for finer things that don’t cost the absolute world, wearing large Tank Must de Cartier replica watches shop.
Stepping things up a notch in the premium stakes, Rami Malek and Troy Kotsur were seen rocking special oblong-shaped numbers as well. 1:1 super clone Cartier watches and Malek are a match made in heaven (uniquely chic, in their own leagues etc) and this was his first notable outing wearing the new AAA fake Cartier Tank Française watches (we cannot account for trips to the grocers for milk and cat food). The amends to the crown, the updated dimensions, and the general creative evolution mean this is yet another Tank we are yearning to own.
Over the moon and back
Another awards ceremony, another winning red carpet look from our boy from Dublin, Bazza K. He loves a colour match, this time his burgundy high quality replica Omega Speedmaster ’57 watches (a fave of George Clooney’s FYI) popped with his red McQueen suit. Clearly over the moon about his big best supporting actor gong, he joked afterwards that he really should have been representing Irish colours so come the Oscars, we are fully expecting Keoghan to be in head to toe green – Speedy and all.
