The Watches of Simu Liu

Actor Simu Liu just made it to Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2022, and deservedly so. The Chinese-born Canadian star became a household name with his role in the Marvel movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. It looks like Simu’s career is definitely at its peak as he is also set to appear in this year’s Barbie live-action film as the other Ken.

Simu wasted no time showing off his sartorial chops with red carpet appearances that made many heads turn. From tailored suits to sleek timepieces, Simu Liu has his style down pat. In his watch box are pieces from IWC and Omega that will never go out of style. Check out the favorite watches of Simu Liu:



IWC Portuguese Chronograph

For the Shang-Chi premiere, Simu complemented his red carpet style with the IWC Portuguese Chronograph — one of the brand’s most timeless releases. Introduced in 1998, this watch is known for its sleek design and unrivaled wrist presence.

The actor prefers the gold model, whose friendly dimensions wear well with formal ensembles. The thin bezel gives one the impression of wearing a significantly bigger watch, while the black dial steals attention with its sunburst finish and raised Arabic numerals and hands. An alligator leather strap completes the look.




IWC Portuguese Automatic 7 Days

We’ve also seen Simu wear another classically designed IWC on the cover of Variety magazine. The said watch is the Portuguese Automatic 7 Days, a successful novelty of the brand. It is made from stainless steel, which was heavily polished to give the watch a sporty but sophisticated look.



Sized at 42.3mm, the IW500703 features a round case, paired with a smooth bezel and a black leather strap. The dial remains true to the spirit of the original 1930s Portugeiser with its applied Arabic numerals, feuille hands, and balanced layout. The red accents on the right sub-dial provide a playful touch.




Omega Aqua Terra Yellow Gold

At the 2022 Oscars, Simu made a statement with an all-red suit from Versace. He paired his outfit with a great daily wearer from Omega – the Aqua Terra. Known for its outstanding 150-meter water resistance, robustness, and handsome appeal, this watch deserves a spot in anyone’s collection.

The model he wears is the yellow gold version, which comes with a 41.5 mm case, a smooth bezel, and a polished link bracelet. The all-gold finish makes for a lustrous timepiece, while the sunburst and lacquered champagne dial offer a unique look with its teak patterns, luminous dagger indices, and date window at 3.




IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph

On casual days, Simu likes to wear the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph. Apart from being an integral part of the brand’s catalog, the watch also has a casual to dress design, paired with 60-meter water resistance.



The model Simu adores comes in a 43mm steel case, made more eye-catching with its clean lines and curved bezel. Its black dial serves as a great backdrop against the white indices and red accents. Powering the watch is the Caliber SW500, which offers a 48-hour power reserve.




Jacob & Co.

Apart from his obvious love for IWC, Simu also considers the Jacob & Co. Astronomia Solar Baguette Jewelry Planets Zodiac as one of his favorites. He wore this watch during the recent Met Gala with a dapper white tuxedo.

Crafted from white gold, this watch displays diamond-set gems and yellow sapphire, which represent the planets and the sun. The blue PVD dial showcases the hand-engraved rose gold zodiac signs, while the blue leather strap ties the look together. Together, these details float over a backdrop full of baguette diamonds.
