Adrien Brody Loves Dressy Watches

Bulgari Octo Finissimo Ultra Thin Titanium, Rose Gold, and Black Ceramic

It’s been twenty years since Adrien Brody won the Best Actor Oscar for his role in The Pianist – the youngest actor to achieve this feat. Since then, he’s been known for pouring himself into every role, from his Wes Anderson films to his guesting in HBO’s Succession.

Roles in seriously stylish films have rubbed off on his personal style, which favors a monochrome palette and superb tailoring. On his wrist, Adrien has versatile dress watches on rotation. Check out the watches of Adrien Brody.


IWC Portuguese Chrono Automatic 18k Rose Gold Mens Watch IW371482

IWC Portuguese Chronograph

The Portuguese Chronograph is one of the most iconic models from IWC Schaffhausen. Combining the practicality of a chronograph with the timeless looks of the Portuguese, this watch can go from daily wear to formal events.

Adrien’s preferred version features a red gold case, mounted on a black alligator leather strap. These are complemented by a slate dial with applied gold hour markers, elongated hands, and a white minute track around the outer rim. With its compact 41mm diameter, the Portuguese Chronograph suits almost any wrist. Video from GQ on YouTube




Cartier Santos Silver Dial Large 18k Yellow Gold Mens Watch WGSA0029

Cartier Santos

The Cartier Santos is best known for its roots in aviation, having been created in 1904 by Louis Cartier. A mainstay in the French maison’s catalog, it has been redesigned in 2018 to have a dressier feel and ergonomic fit, without losing its signature traits.

Adrien went for the solid 18k yellow gold edition as seen in the 2022 Met Gala. The white dial makes the black stretched Roman numerals and blued hands pop, while the bezel and metal bracelet with screws give the watch a sporty edge. Photos from Cartier and Too Fab on Twitter




Bulgari Octo Finissimo

Bulgari Octo Finissimo

From Bulgari, Adrien wears the Octo Finissimo – one of the thinnest watches on the market. Launched in 2012, Octo watches take inspiration from the octagonal geometrical motifs that cover the interior of Rome’s Basilica of Maxentius. Powering them are sleek mechanical movements that are an homage to the inventiveness of that ancient structure’s architecture.



Adrien’s choice model is just 6.40 mm thick, which allows for a more comfortable fit on the wrist. It also comes with a steel finish, made more eye-catching with the sharp lines and curved bezel. The small-seconds display at 7 and 8 add an interesting flair to the enduring design. These cool but quirky traits truly suit the Academy Award-winner, who was tapped to be the face of the emblematic collection in 2015. Photos from Bvlgari and Adrien Brody on Instagram



Chopard LUC Lunar One Perpetual ref. 161927-5002

Chopard LUC

Adrien makes it a point to attend the x yearly, and it seems he reserves his Chopard timepieces for the much-awaited red carpet.

In 2021, he wore the rose gold LUC Lunar One, which features a galvanized blue dial with polished Roman numerals and a perpetual calendar. Its moonphase feature is shown using a disc at 6, with actual stars of the Northern Hemisphere and a moon that orbits the small seconds axis. At its heart is the chronometer and Poinçon de Genève-certified Calibre 96.13-L with a 65-hour power reserve.



Chopard LUC Lunar One Black Tie

This year, he made an appearance with the LUC Lunar One Black Tie, which perfectly complemented his all-black attire. This watch is characterized by a platinum construction, high-grade automatic movement, and a bezel set with baguette diamonds. Like the previous model, its dial consists of a perpetual calendar with astronomical moonphases displayed using a blue sub-dial. Photos from Chopard, Dior on Twitter and GQ on Instagram
