On Sunday, February 5, the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles was packed with a number of artists and celebrities for the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, and of course, it was a time for viewers to marvel at the craftsmanship of some of the luxury jewelry industry’s most iconic, one-of-a-kind pieces on display on the red carpet.
Aside from the female luxury jewelry on show, we were also impressed by some of the men’s luxury timepieces, and in this post, we will show you a lineup of five of some of the watches that most fascinated us that night.

First on our list, is the timeless Patek Philippe timepiece worn to the Grammys by Jay Z. The long time watch collector did not let down fans of luxury wristwatches, as he complimented his dope tuxedo by wearing the Grandmaster Chime 6300G watch from the Genevan luxury watch brand.

The 6300G Grandmaster Chime watch, made of white gold and featuring a reversible casing with a black face on one side and a white dial on the other, was originally introduced in 2016.
It was only the second iteration of Patek’s Grandmaster Chime, one of the world’s most complicated watches with 20 complications, including the capacity to chirp out the time cheerfully every quarter-hour, informing the wearer of the moon’s phase, and maintaining the precise date until the year 2100.
Jack Harlow In Rolex GMT Master II
Although the 24 year old rapper has worn this Rolex GMT Master II Batman timepiece on a few occasions, we were still left in awe of its versatility and robustness.
Harlow matched his caramel-colored suit with the stunning Rolex Oyster Perpetual model from the Rolex Master II Batman watch collection, a model which features a black dial and a blue and black ceramic Cerachrom bezel insert.

The GMT Batman which was introduced in 1955, was initially created as a navigational tool for professionals who frequently traveled across the world to concurrently display the time in two separate time zones.

Trevor, who has been hosting the Annual Grammy Awards since 2021, came back a third time to host the 2023 Grammys. He decked up with a rose gold Patek Philippe Nautilus watch.
Trevor chose the 18k rose gold Patek Philippe Nautilus 5723/1R model which features 32 baguette diamonds set around the bezel and 12 baguette-cut diamonds on the hour marker. This timepiece is one of the rarest Patek Philippe wristwatches around.

Since 1976, the Nautilus has stood for the sophisticated sports watch. After more than four decades, this beautiful timepiece today offers an array of models for both men and women. They complement the busiest lifestyles with unrivaled class, whether in steel, rose gold, white gold, or two-tone combinations.

The Panerai watch seems to be a go-to brand for Dwayne considering that he has been seen wearing Panerai timepieces on so many occasions. The Rock yet again wore a Panerai Radiomir to the Grammys and chose the Panerai PAM00515 model.

The Panerai PAM00515 features a bezel made of polished goldtech – a unique form of alloy with a small amount of copper used by Panerai to give its materials a vivid red tint for a classy and refined look. This wristwatch also comes with an alligator dark brown leather strap and a brown numeral hour marker.

For many years Pharrell has partnered with Richard Mille and it is obvious that he loves the brand as Pharrell has been seen at various events donning stunning timepieces from the luxury watchmaker.
The rapper again donned another of the brand’s watches, a “Happy smiley watch” , the Richard Mille 88 Smiley Tourbillon timepiece.
