Watches at the 2015 Oscars

The 2015 Oscars ceremony gave a lot of fashion designers the chance to showcase their garments, and there were some watches as well. Presenter Naomi Watts wore a Giorgio Armani Privé gown, and she was wearing a jewellery bracelet that looked like a watch but was in fact simply the Wallis Simpson bracelet by Anna Hu with just over 34 carats of diamonds.

Amongst the men there was a fine selection of dress watches. Eddie Redmayne, winner of Best Actor in a Leading Role for The Theory of Everything, wore a Chopard L.U.C. XPS in platinum on a black strap, with blue dial, and perfect for slipping under a shirt cuff at just 7.13 mm thickness.
