Welcome to Watches of the Week, the place we’ll monitor the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches noticed on celebrities.

The Royal Oak is the large birthday boy within the watch world this 12 months—it simply turned 50—so AP has been rolling out one particular version after one other. However it’s arduous to argue with Hemsworth’s determination to go together with a basic model.
