Last night, it seemed that every single celebrity in the known universe took to the beige carpet for the Met Gala in Manhattan. There’s nothing particularly shocking about that fact – it does take place basically every year (global pandemics excepted), although usually on the first Monday in May. This year, we tuned in, hoping to see a light smattering of horological delight, when instead we were faced with an onslaught of heavy-hitting timepieces – everything from vintage tool watches to diamond-encrusted luxury fare from the likes of Patek and AP. Nearly every brand was represented in the night’s theme of “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.” It’s quite possible that we, here at HODINKEE, were the only ones who missed the luxe attire because we were too busy staring at all watches. We went ahead and compiled some of our favorites and hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
