We recap our favorite wrist shots…
Readers of this blog know that we here at First In Watches like to keep an eye on “who’s wearing what” — particularly when it is discovered by an “in the wild” spotting of a wrist shot. Come to think of it, we’ve spotted and called quite a few candid wrist shots over the past year, and so we thought we’d take a moment to reflect. Enjoy!
For starters, we spotted Bill Clinton wearing a Panerai to his meeting with North Korea’s dictator:
and then there was France’s Nicolas Sarkozy wearing a very stately Girard-Perregaux:
Moving on from world leaders, we founder ourselves wondering what YouTube founder Chad Hurley was wearing (in fact we still don’t know!):
And then there are society’s seedier characters, from which we have set our spying eyes upon everything from disgraced Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff’s forfeited watch collection:
and — yes — we’ve even been lured in to writing about “Narco Bling” aka the watches of Mexican drug lords:
Alas, our passion for the elusive wrist shot is rarely satiated. And so our relentless pursuit of precious metals housing precious movements often leads us to search the wrists of athletes — out of their uniforms and into casual mode, elite athletes are no match for our horologically trained eyes which have transformed many an innocuous photo into a story about a wrist shot.
And when it comes to the hoops game, it was an easy drive down the lane for this slam dunk shot of Shaq with this Audemars Piguet:
Check that — Dwayne Wade has most recently been spotted wearing Hublot! Nice trade, D-Wade!
So what will Team Perpetuelle spot next? Stay tuned!
We hope you enjoyed this special edition of “Wrist Shot Rewind”!
