Leonardo Di’caprio showcasing Tag Heuer

Watches are an age-old status symbol but in recent years they have transitioned from purely a functional element of dressing, to an accessory in their own right.  As a result, we love to know the watch(es) our favorite celebrities wear.  Indeed, many celebrities and sports legends even hold sponsorship contracts with many luxury brand name watch manufacturers, including Cameron Diaz, LeonardoDicaprio, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Tiger Woods, Maria Sharapova and many more.  However, in recent months, an interesting trend has been noticed within the watch industry as Hollywood stars and starlets have been seen favoring lesser-known, more affordable brand name watches in lieu of the luxury Swiss watch contenders, which were once de rigeur in Hollywood.

Tv personality LaLa (Carmelo) Anthony

This year, casual watch brands, Red Line and a_Line, were the official sponsor of both the MTV Movie Awards and the BET Awards. Celebrities including Samuel L. Jackson, TV personality, LaLa Anthony, and more were gifted a men’s watch or women’s watch at the events, which means now celebrities are rocking the trends that you can afford.

As well as Red Line, many celebrities including Fergie, Dancing with the Stars‘, Dean Caine, Jessica Alba and  N’Sync’s Lance Bass have been spotted sporting an Invicta timepiece. With multiple collections—ranging from casual to their luxury I By Invicta series—it’s no wonder the popularity of the Florida-based company is soaring.

James Bond’s Roger Moore

Another popular brand currently making a splash in Hollywood is Seiko.  Seiko has been gracing the wrist of one of the most (if not the most) distinguished gentlemen on the big screen—James Bond—for many years, most notably during the Roger Moore. What’s more, with starlets like Twilight’s Kristen Stewart and the Disney Channel’s Selena Gomez ranked as Seiko fans, the beloved brand name watch is showing that a classic watch brand can still work in a contemporary world.  Seiko won’t be going anywhere any time soon.
