Doing double duty as a watch and a bracelet, Bulgari’s snake-inspired wraparound-style Serpenti has long been a celeb favorite both on and off the red carpet. Aside from Olivia Palermo, everyone from Naomi Watts to Anna Dello Russo has been spotted in one of its many iterations.

Since being released only a year ago, the Apple Watch has been embraced not only by the general consumer market but by the fashion world as well. Its functionality and technological advancement in the realm of wearable tech are complemented by an array of band styles (most notably the Hermès collaboration) and its relative affordability compared to the average luxury watch. The best indication of its popularity among fashion power players is the support of Anna Wintour, though other fans include Beyoncé, Karlie Kloss, and Chiara Ferragni.
Another wildly popular watch-bracelet hybrid is the Hermès Hermès Medor. Seen here on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley during one of her many fashionable airport visits, at first glance it looks like a typical Hermès studded leather bracelet, but when the wearer opens up the largest stud, a classic Hermès watch face is revealed.
Perhaps the most timeless of the well-known watches on this list, Cartier’s Tank model (which has been around since 1917) has been seen on everyone from Angelina Jolie to Michelle Obama to Emanuelle Alt (above). The Vogue Paris editor in chief, who literally epitomizes French style, shows us how perfectly the tank complements a classic look.
The ever-popular Rolex is a hit among powerful women (and men) of all ages for its customizability in terms of bracelet style, color, dial, complication, and thus price point. While Victoria Beckham was seen here wearing a Day-Date model, she actually has quite the Rolex collection. A quick Google search shows her in a variety of other styles including a higher-priced Daytona, joining a number of other Rolex-clad celebs such as Alessandra Ambrosio, Jennifer Aniston, and Reese Witherspoon.
