The Barbie frenzy has indeed gripped the internet. The highly anticipated film, directed by Greta Gerwig and starring Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie in leading roles, has been turning heads with its elaborate press tour. Its fashion statements are all the rage now. Much has been said about Margot Robbie referencing various ‘Barbies’ in her looks, styled by high-profile stylist and TV personality Andrew Mukamal. The rest of the team too has been bringing their A game, especially when it comes to luxury watches.
Ken-Approved TAG Heuer Carrera Date Pink
Ryan Gosling, in true Ken fashion, did not shy away from sporting a vibrant pink dial. The TAG Heuer Carrera Date (WBN2313.BA0001) is bold and eye-catching. The watch is not a collaboration with the Barbie film, but was released in March at Watches and Wonders 2023. Nevertheless, the stunning pink dial is reminiscent of Barbie and exudes all the ‘Kenergy’. Styled by Mark Avery, Gosling’s look included a pastel blue Gucci suit, which complemented the pink Carrera. The watch has a 36 mm case that houses the automatic Calibre 7. The hands are coated with white Super-LumiNova® that offers a striking contrast to the vivid pink dial and its gradient ring along the flange.
Will Ferrell’s Oris ProPilot X Calibre 400
Actor Will Ferrell chose a slightly less bright pink shade for his wrist. While gracing the red carpet for the European premiere of Barbie, he was sporting his personal Oris ProPilot X Calibre 400 watch with a salmon dial. The 39 mm timepiece features an all-titanium construction and Oris’s in-house Calibre 400 movement, boasting five days of power reserve. The minimalist dial and the titanium bracelet are perfect for daily wear even as they look stunning on the red carpet.
Bejewelled Richard Mille RM 07-02
Featured on Barbie The Album, the film’s official soundtrack, rapper Nicki Minaj stuns with her Richard Mille RM 07-02. The watch is gem-set, purple/pink-coloured, and sapphire-cased, measuring 32.90 mm in diameter, 14.35 mm in thickness, and 46.75 mm across the wrist, lug-to-lug. The watch case highlights the house’s skeletonised movement in 5N red gold for the pink version. The watch runs on Caliber CRMA5 and offers a power reserve of 50 hours.
