Rihanna rocks glammed Rolex King Midas, reveals pregnancy at Met Gala


The bling watch trend is being fueled by Rihanna and The Weeknd, with Michelle Yeoh endorsing Richard Mille in addition to The Weeknd’s ‘women’ Piaget and RiRi’s iced-out Rolex.

Michelle Yeoh donned a Richard Mille that was covered in diamonds to this year’s Met Gala, while RiRi wore a glammed-up Rolex King Midas to announce her pregnancy.


Singer The Weeknd wore a Piaget Limelight high jewelry “ladies” watch with his Loewe tuxedo at the Cannes premiere of his contentious series The Idol earlier this year.


In a similar spirit, flashy watchmakers like Hublot and Jacob & Co, whose multimillion-dollar timepieces, are also benefiting from the influence of Jay-Z, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Floyd Mayweather.

With her custom iced-out Rolex King Midas, worn during the paparazzi photo shoot where she announced her pregnancy, to the 47mm diamond-encrusted Jacob & Co watch she wore as a choker on the front row at Pharrell Williams’ debut for Louis Vuitton in June, Rihanna, the queen of the blinged-out watch, made a bold statement.


Michelle Yeoh, a longtime Richard Mille ambassador, is another recent supporter of a statement watch. Michelle Yeoh attended this year’s Met Gala sporting a dazzling diamond “snow set” watch on a black strap.
