Arguably the most striking watch spotted on Keoghan’s wrist this week – if not ever – was an AAA quality fake Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 34mm Sedna Gold, which had nearly 400 diamonds on it as well as some rubys. “He’s particularly obsessed with that blingy ass perfect replica Omega he wore to Globes,” says Urbinati, and we’re not surprised he’s smitten.
“Barry Keoghan is giving us all a masterclass in how to build fake watches online into a look versus adding them as an afterthought,” says Lydia Winters, This Watch Life podcast host. “The watches don’t outshine the outfits nor do the outfits outshine the high quality copy watches, instead it’s a perfect pairing that leaves me waiting to see what he’ll be wearing next.”
Winters didn’t have to wait long, as the following day Keoghan swapped out one best 1:1 replica Omega for another – this time a De Ville Tresor 36mm Moonshine Gold on Moonshine Gold. With 768 diamonds on this one, he stepped things up a notch, with this piece supposedly classed as a ladies piece. The boundaries have long since been broken for men to wear women’s watches but what’s most impressive about this luxury fake Omega is that it’s a whole 8mm smaller than the IWC he wore days before. Boy’s got range, I tell ya.
My favourite of Keoghan’s horological adventures this week though was the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph he wore while perfecting his best pose with Margot Robbie. At 42.5mm, he yoyos up and down in size, but this one adds an air of sophistication to anyone who wears it. It is also a nice little nod to the fact he’s about to star as a pilot in Masters of the Air.
“Among the quartet of watches, the Swiss movement replica Omega stands out as the most harmonious choice but personally, I’d go for the Vacheron Constantin Overseas,” says watch expert Kristian Haagen. “It’s a preference unaffected by my choice of outfit.”
