Kevin O'Leary's Watch: F.P. Journe & Rolex

Ladies and gentlemen, gather ’round because Kevin O’Leary, aka Mr. Wonderful, has decided to share some of his invaluable advice with us mere mortals—especially those of us who aspire to become collectors. But, of course, this wouldn’t be a typical Mr. Wonderful spiel without a hint of humor and a touch of bling!

Let’s start with Kevin’s left wrist, shall we? He’s sporting the 39 mm F.P. Journe Chronomètre Bleu “Tantalum.” Now, you might be wondering, what’s so special about tantalum? Well, it’s not just a metal; it’s a rare dark grey metal with blue overtones. Why? Because when you’re as fabulous as Kevin O’Leary, regular silver or gold just won’t do. It’s a metal so exclusive that even Greek mythology had to give it a shoutout with the “Torment of Tantalus.” I mean, who doesn’t want a watch that’s basically named after a Greek tragedy?

As for the watch itself, it’s not just a timepiece; it’s a statement. It’s like saying, “I don’t just value time; I torment it, just like Tantalus himself.” And let’s be real, who needs a watch that tells time accurately when you can have one that tells time in style, complete with Greek mythology vibes?

Now, let’s move on to the other wrist, where things get even more interesting. There, you’ll find a 40 mm Rolex Daytona Rolex Cosmograph in 18-carat yellow gold. But that’s not all; it’s got a meteorite dial. Yes, you read that right—meteorite! Because when you’re Kevin O’Leary, your watch has to be out of this world, quite literally.

Kevin’s watch dial is made from a fragment of an actual meteorite that probably traveled through the universe before crash-landing on Earth, only to be turned into a watch face. Talk about making an entrance! If you ever meet an alien, you can confidently say, “My watch is literally older than Earth.”

And let’s not forget about the black oysterflex strap. Why go for a regular strap when you can have one that sounds like it’s ready to scuba dive at a moment’s notice? It’s the kind of strap that says, “I might be in a board meeting now, but I could wrestle a shark later.”

So, there you have it, folks. Kevin O’Leary’s guide to collector’s watches is a delightful blend of style, humor, and sheer audacity. Who needs a plain old watch when you can have one named after Greek myths and crafted from meteorites? The next time someone gives you watch advice, just remember to ask yourself, “Is it Kevin O’Leary approved?” Because if it isn’t, is it even worth wearing on your wrist?

Thanks for the wisdom and the laughs, Mr. Wonderful. Your watches may be out of this world, but your advice is down-to-earth and fantastic!
