Hardly a day passes without spotting a celebrity with a beautiful time piece on his/her wrist. While we mostly watch them with admiration, some time pieces look way out of reflecting it’s owner’s style. We hand picked six beautiful time pieces for six important celebrities as “virtual” happy new year gifts.
We had a suggestion for our dear friend Mustafa Sandal who has been appeared in our pages many times. Of course, it was not easy for us to chose a watch for the Sandal as he already has a stunning collection of watches.
Initially released in 1979 with the first episode and became and instant classic afterwards, The Alien franchise is considered to be one of the finest examples of horror / science fiction motion pictures. The leading role played by Sigourney Weaver wore this unique watch during the movie. As announced in last November, same watch will be re-issued by Seiko with a limited production of 3000 pieces only.
Undoubtedly, one of the most important news in Turkey’s football society is the transfer of our successful soccer player Arda Turan to one of the world’s leading football teams FC Barcelona.
My choice for Arda Turan comes from the well know luxury watch manufacturer Maurice & Lacroix and it’s brand partner FC Barcelona due to the obvious football connection. 43mm case diameter Pontos FC Barcelona is a very nicely designed stainless steel sports watch, dedicated to the brand’s partnership with the famous football team FC Barcelona. The model stands out with the exclusive details like the club emblem on the dial and the canvas strap designed with the colors of FC Barcelona.
I am sure Pontos FC Barcelona will fit perfectly with Arda Turan’s casual style among the bonus of having an accessory dedicated to his new team.
Turkey’s proud in the motorsports world Kenan Sofuoğlu ( 31years old ), became the champion for FIM Supersport World Championship in 2015. After a long and challenging season, Sofuoğlu and his team came back with the world cup.
Our choice for Sofuoğlu is the HYT H2 which is inspired by the fascinating world of motorsports. H2 sports a 48.8mm diameter, DLC coated case made of titanium. The highly engineered in-house caliber features the trade mark liquid filled design. We strongly believe this ultra hi-tech time piece will suit with Sofuoğlu’s latest addition to his motorsport’s collection; Ferrari 488 Berlinetta.
Cem Boyner, once attracted major attention with his politician identity, has just started a new hobby; Scuba Diving. After a few lessons he took during a trip to Indonesia with his wife, Boyner started scuba diving and under water photography. Our choice for him is the mighty Deep Sea D-Blue from Rolex.
Dedicated to the famous explorer James Cameron’s dive to the deepest part of the world - The Marina Trench, Deep Sea D-Blue stands out with it’s Deep Sea writing in green color (same with Cameron’s submersible; Trieste) and it’s beautifully degraded blue to black dial. Rated at WR3900M we believe Deep Sea D-Blue is a spot on for Cem Boyner with his new hobby and adventurous personality.
Aziz Sancar (born 8 September 1946) is a Turkish-American biochemist and molecular biologist specializing in DNA repair,cell cycle checkpoints, and circadian clock. In 2015, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry along with Tomas Lindahl and Paul L. Modrich for their mechanistic studies of DNA repair. He is the co-founder of the Aziz and Gwen Sancar Foundation, which is a non-profit organization to promote Turkish culture and to support Turkish students in the United States.
Our choice for the successful scientist is ROLEX Milgauss Ref. 116400 GV. While we have a few reasons for our choice, undoubtedly the most important one is the magnetic shielding of the watch. Milgauss is capable of withstanding to 1000 Gaus magnetic field expose making it a perfect choice for a scientist frequently working in the laboratory. Beside it’s technical assets, Milgauss is also a very good looking watch. With it’s 40mm diameter stainless steel case, Milgauss will suit with casual style nicely. On the other hand, the simple dial lay out and polished parts will make Milgauss a beautiful dress watch which can go along with a tuxedo as well. We believe Rolex Milgauss Ref. 116400 GV will be a brilliant choice for Prof. Dr. Aziz Sancar.
Mehmet ÖZ ( born in 1960 – Cleveland ) is a successful figure of our country in medical science. Beside his titles as Vice President in Columbia University and cardiothoracic surgeon, he is also an author and a television personality.
We chose a nice Pulsometric watch for the successful doctor; Vacheron Constantin Harmony Monopusher Chronograph Calibre 3300. Initially launched at 2015 SIHH, Harmony Monopusher Chronograph is limited 260 pieces only. The watch features the monopusher chronograph function which has been named Doctors’ Chronograph due to it’s pulsometric inner bezel allows the user to measure the blood pressure.
42mm diameter case is formed in classic cushion style and made of 18K pink gold. We are pretty sure that Vacheron Constantin Harmony Monopusher Chronograph Calibre 3300 would be a perfect watch for Mr.Mehmet ÖZ.
