The First We Feast present Sizzling Ones, the place celebrities eat more and more fiery wings whereas answering more and more spicy questions, has a surprisingly wealthy historical past of tremendous timepieces. John Mayer wore his Rolex “Rainbow” Daytona on the present, whereas Ed Sheeran scurried in the wrong way with the traditional class of a white-gold Patek Philippe perpetual calendar. Kumail Nanjiani, Megan Thee Stallion, and Gordon Ramsay have all worn killer watches on the present. Now we will add Jake Gyllenhaal and his Cartier Santos to the lore. 

Sizzling Ones

With all of the wing-eating, finger-licking, and close-ups on pained faces, Sizzling Ones is an ideal showcase for a watch. Simply have a look at the screenshot of Gyllenhaal tearing right into a wing—there’s nowhere for that watch to cover! Even on the purple carpet, the place celebrities presumably bust out their most interesting timepieces, watches can slip behind a tux sleeve. I’ve to imagine that celebrities occurring Sizzling Ones know their watches are going to get plenty of display time, in order that they plan accordingly. 

However in case you put on a luxurious gown watch on the purple carpet, what sort of timepiece do you put on to eat scorching wings on a YouTube present? The reply appears to be that you simply go massive: Mayer’s Rolex is constructed to blind, Megan and Nanjiana selected stable gold items, and Quavo introduced a bust-down that might most likely be seen from house. Gyllenhaal’s watch doesn’t precisely match that invoice—he introduced a two-tone, metal and yellow gold Santos that he’s been carrying usually for the previous couple of years. Gyllenhaal went along with his comfort-blanket watch, which makes plenty of sense for somebody about to choke down the sorts of sauces that can make you cry like a child.

Jon Rahm’s Rolex Sky Dweller 

If there’s one end result you may be positive of in an enormous golf match, it’s that the event winner goes to be carrying a Rolex. The King of Sport Watches takes that title severely, outfitting champion after champion. The record of the previous few Masters-winner watches contains Scottie Scheffler’s Rolex GMT, Hideki Matsuyama’s Rolex Submariner, and Tiger Woods’s Deepsea. (The one outlier up to now 5 years is Dustin Johnson, who wore a Hublot.)

After prevailing at Augusta, Rahm paired his inexperienced jacket with a Rolex Sky Dweller. It’s the identical piece he wore after his U.S. Open win in 2021.
