5 Luxury watches loved by K-pop stars, from BTS to Blackpink

Whether they’re on set or being photographed on their outings across the world, K-pop idols are under the constant watch of their fans. Known for their talents in performing on stage and their great and diverse sense of style that they exhibit daily, it is no wonder that idols have adoring fans always swooning for them.

In recent years, South Korean stars have had a major influence on the global fashion industry. Take the members of Blackpink for example, each one has become an ambassador for high-end fashion and jewellery labels. Rosé is the face of Tiffany & Co; Jennie has been Chanel’s ambassador since 2017; alongside Dior, Jisoo was also made the brand ambassador for Cartier in March this year, and Lisa was brought in by Hedi Slimane to become Celine’s brand ambassador. As style role models, fans try to emulate their outfits and are willing to spend a good amount of money to do so.

Your favourite K-pop idols are always spotted with a luxury timepiece on their wrists too. From telling the time to adding more style to their everyday outfits, a watch can really accentuate your personal aesthetic. Want to know what models they’re sporting these days? Read on.

Being the brand ambassador for Cartier grants Jisoo an array of jewellery and watches from the Maison. Pictured here on her wrist, Jisoo wears a Cartier Tank that is reminiscent of a World War II tank that it was designed after.

Typically seen with scrunchies and bracelets on her wrists, a luxury timepiece is spotted on Lisa from time to time too. In this case, it’s the Bulgari Serpenti watch. The time-teller in itself is modern and intricately designed to sit well on the wrist of its wearer, elegant and mesmerising thanks to the set of diamonds on its bezel.

Seen using an Apple Watch here, we can discern that Wonho is a person who admires practicality and technology. The Apple Watch Hermès is a good contender for a designer smartwatch if you are looking for one, so you can look exactly like Wonho.

On his recent trip to Germany, Exo’s Kai snapped a picture of himself in the plane, looking suave as ever with a Rolex Submariner on his wrist. Launched in 1953 as a diving watch, the Submariner was the second watch in the Rolex line-up to be officially classified as a waterproof timepiece.
