While we don’t normally cover celebrity watch spotting, we thought this one was too cool to ignore. During his press tour for the upcoming superhero flick Avengers: Endgame, Robert Downey Jr. was spotted wearing a De Bethune DB28 Tourbillon in Rose Gold Zirconium.
Downey Jr. is no stranger to the world of haute horlogerie, in recent years he’s been seen wearing various timepieces from Jaeger-LeCoultre, Greubel Forsey, and Urwerk. As you might expect, RDJ didn’t just end up with a De Bethune on his wrist on a whim. The celebrity stylist Jeanne Yang, whose impressive client list includes stars like Tom Cruise, Christian Bale, Keanu Reeves, and George Clooney, worked with him to pick it out.
Yang will be a part of our upcoming panel, co-hosted by The Hollywood Reporter and moderated by WatchTime’s own Mark Bernardo, on watches in the film industry during the WatchTime Los Angeles show on May 3 – 4.
