Trust Shah Rukh Khan To Sport The Coolest, Most Coveted Watches

On Sunday, right before the India vs Pakistan match took over our TV screens, the country was glued to the swearing-in ceremony in process at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in Delhi. The biggest dignitaries from the country attended the ceremony in person and this VIP list included some veterans from the film industry like Rajnikanth, Akshay Kumar and of course, Shah Rukh Khan. And while many moments — ranging from mysterious wild animals appearing in the background to Akki and SRK hugging (a rare occurance) — had the Indian internet descending into a memefest, it was King Khan’s sartorial sensibilities that had us impressed.

The ‘Badshah’ of Bollywood looked dapper as always in a black bandhgala. However, his ensemble is a masterclass in accessorising. Shah Rukh Khan tied his mane in a low pony and wore squared dark sunglasses. He stacked silver metal bracelets and his otherwise plain bandhgala acted as the perfect backdrop for a stunning diamond-crusted elephant head bespoke brooch from Anmol Jewellers.

However, it was his wrist candy that stole the spotlight. Shah Rukh was spotted wearing the stunning Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin 41 mm in Titanium. Back when it was first released in 2018, it was the world’s thinnest self-winding perpetual calendar watch and the 41 mm case, the bezel and bracelet are entirely made of titanium, making it extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear. The hands and the hour markers are made of white gold, while the caseback is created using sapphire crystal. The legendary watchmakers produce all of the 256 components this watch comprises to let it be as delicate and durable as possible.

What’s more, Audemars Piguet only created 200 pieces of this watch, making it extremely coveted and exclusive. It reportedly costs around INR 1.27 crore when it retailed, but it’s resale value has already doubled. However, if you know SRK, you know he has a thing for elusive watches, so, we’re sure the actor must’ve been elated to add this masterpiece to his impressive collection.
