Will Smith dominated the 1990s fashion scene in his role as the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Will dabbled with a variety of era-appropriate appearances and trends, establishing the benchmark for ultra-hip attire.

After all these years, the musician, rapper, and film producer still possess a unique sense of style. However, he has changed from his 90s fashion selections to contemporary main man apparel this time. To accent his style, he also has an incredible collection of watches, ranging from intricate sporting pieces to modern classics.

Overall, here are some of the luxury timepieces in Will’s collection:

  1. Cartier featuring a black flinqué dial

During the Oscars, Will Smith wore a 41mm Cartier watch with a black flinqué dial. This men’s luxurious watch with the stainless steel casing and leather black alligator strap is undeniably stunning. It has a professional feel thanks to the set steel bezel on the side as well as the minute markings on the middle ring.

The design of a Cartier stainless steel watch is apparently classically influenced. However, it has a timeless aesthetic and conveys the idea of stylish men’s athletic gear, making it wearable now but also fashionable in the future.

In addition, Cartier is known for its uncompromising excellence and cutting-edge watch designs and puts a significant amount of effort and work into making each item. The elegant cushion shell is made of stainless steel and measures 40 x 41 mm and 11.3 mm in width.

On the other hand, the crown is studded with a blue crystal. The black flinqué dial with a sunray pattern also has white-tinted Roman numerals, markings, and steel sword-shaped indicators for hourly and minute reading. Minutes are tracked on the tiny subdial at 6 o’clock while the date aperture is placed at 3 o’clock.

Furthermore, this watch from Cartier is powered by a Calibre 1904-PS MC automated self-winding movement. It includes a function that allows for a 48-hour power reserve. Additionally, the timepiece is fastened to a strap with a deployant buckle composed of black alligator leather. It can also withstand up to 30 meters of water (100 ft).

  1. Rolex Submariner Date in oystersteel

In the collections of most Rolex watch collectors and enthusiasts, the Submariner Date is the staple. The Fresh Prince isn’t an exception, as he has been sported on several occasions wearing this luxurious timepiece in black dial.

The Rolex Submariner isn’t just unquestionably the most famous diving piece in history. It also has the possibility of becoming the most identifiable timepiece on the planet. The Rolex Submariner has undergone numerous aesthetic changes since its creation while retaining its initial DNA structure.

The lengthy running five-digit version was superseded by Rolex in 2010 and improved with a big dial, mega casing, and Cerachrom bezel. It also has wider lugs, bigger hourly markings, and larger indexes, as well as a new design Oyster bracelet with a heftier weight and a robust ceramic bezel. All of these adjustments led to a watch with a greater wrist impression.

The in-house caliber 3235 of the Rolex Submariner 126610LN boasts a 70-hour power reserve and a COSC precision of -2/+2 seconds a day. It also features a bi-directional wound wheel, a paramagnetic blue parachrom hairspring, as well as a projected service duration of ten years.

  1. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

Will’s Audemars Piguet Royal Oak timepiece is among his favorite accessories. The Royal Oak, which was introduced in 1972, was the first high-end sporting watch constructed of steel. Its octagonal bezel distinguishes it with an attached strap.

At the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Homecoming, Will was sported wearing the stainless steel version of the Royal Oak watch. It features a Grand Tapisserie dial in silver tones that harmoniously contrasts the stainless steel casing and band.

This stainless steel watch measures 41mm and has a lovely bracelet that is both attractive and pleasant to wear. Except for the finished face of the corners from the connections, the Royal Oak bracelet has a polished texture on most of its surfaces.

On the other hand, the dial has a “Grande Tapisserie” motif and is silver-white in color. At the third hour, directly adjacent to the smooth minute segment ring, is a gleaming white date rotor. Royal Oak indexes, the AP emblem at 12, and white golden attached indicators are also included on the dial.

In addition, this beautiful wristwatch is powered by the Caliber 4302. It features 257 elements, the 32-jewel exquisitely polished movement, and has a power reserve of up to 70 hours.

  1. Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometer

Will Smith wore a blue Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometer watch when on the road to publicize his film, Gemini Man. This edgy 43mm timepiece was influenced by vintage ship watches used for nautical chronometers. It has a tiny seconds timer placed at the 6 o’clock mark and a power reserve display at the 12 o’clock position.

In addition, the beautiful Ulysse Nardin Marine’s visual appeal mirrors its creative and faultless functioning, which was driven by the strength and motion of the waters. The new inclusion of a date, located in the sub-dial of the moving seconds, and the piece’s certification as a chronometer are the only changes to the current timepiece’s precise design.

Overall, the Ulysse Nardin Marine is available in a wide range of designs that include titanium, stainless steel, white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, and more. Silver and gold, as well as alligator leather and rubber compound, are available as bracelet alternatives. Ulysse Nardin Marine is, thus, a very exceptional watch for your portfolio and can suit any personal lifestyle.

  1. TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph

Will Smith has also been seen donning the traditional blue TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph. It is among the most recognizable square pieces available. The initial Jack Heuer-designed Monaco, which bears the title of the Monaco Formula 1 race, was unveiled in 1969. Moreover, the timepiece represented the first micro-winding mechanical Chrono.

The basic components that have contributed to the success and recognizability of the TAG Heuer Monaco remain in the redesigned Heuer 02 model. Although the engine within the revamped edition is bigger, the casing still has the classic square form and is 39mm x 39mm in size.

The face of the lugs is still refined, and the bezel remains vertically satin-polished, while the flanks are also satin-brushed. In addition, the wonderfully done but extremely visible, slightly curved sapphire crystal is still in front.

The crown, as well as pushers, are both situated at three o’clock since this watch is the substitute for the Calibre 12 version. Furthermore, the 100m waterproofness rating has not changed.

The use of a modern movement necessitates a number of changes to the dial. The rhodium-plated indexes, the TAG Heuer emblem, the round seconds counter with luminescent dots, as well as the dial featuring its sunray polished blue design are all identical. Additionally, the distinctive white subdials with red Chrono hands remain the same (middle and sub-counters). However, you will notice that the edges of these counters have been chamfered and are now sunken.

  1. Rolex Sky-Dweller

In addition to Submariner, Will Smith sports the Rolex Sky-Dweller, one of the brand’s latest watches, which was introduced in 2012. The cutting-edge timepiece is also among Rolex’s most intricate creations.

Along with a striking 42mm casing, it has other noteworthy functions, including a yearly calendar over the hour markings, a dual-time record in the dial’s middle, and a conventional date system. All of these pass via the bezel for the Ring Command as well as the crown, designed in a classy fluted pattern.

Will is sporting the 18k Everose gold version, which comes with a complementing chocolate dial and a tobacco leather strap. With its caliber 9001 movement, the Rolex Sky-Dweller is unquestionably among the company’s most striking timepieces. A cutting-edge ring control mechanism is integrated right into the movement and is shown in the fluted bezel. Therefore, the user can alter each of the movement’s features by moving the bezel to one of the numerous configurations.

  1. Tudor Black Bay Blue

In 2015, Will was featured on the cover of Esquire magazine wearing a Tudor Heritage Black Bay. He was sporting a diving timepiece with a blue bezel and a classic design.

This variant, which had a burgundy bezel and gilded accents, followed the first Tudor Black Bay design. Its understated design, which includes a changeable navy blue bezel, a matte black dial, as well as silver inscriptions, generally, this watch has been a prayer-answer for many Tudor enthusiasts.

Conclusion

Will Smith is an exceptional influencer who has contributed to a wide range of fields. This includes but isn’t limited to performance, producing films, and the arts. His history of collecting watches is similarly impressive, and his Royal Oak and Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometer show a variety of interests in both form and content.

During his FHH interview, Smith talked about his holy grail timepiece as having a very specific complexity called a “good review” lever. Critics will cease disparaging his work whenever prodded.
