Idris Elba and Stormzy – Gucci 25H Tourbillon and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra Thin

Just a few weeks ago, Elba was seen showing off the affordable version of Gucci’s 25H, but for the premiere of his new movie The beast, he activated beast mode with the reinforced yellow gold 25H tourbillon – whose magical mechanics will make you feel whimsical in a way only Alessandro Michele can achieve. Elba was joined on the red carpet by Stormzy – who had a big week, appearing at the Coldplay gig at Wembley and Old Trafford to watch his beloved Manchester United beat Liverpool – who got his way with an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ‘Jumbo’ Extra thin.

A long time favorite of presidents, captains of industry and guys who want to say kudos to themselves for doing well, it was the first watch to tell the day of the week and just happens to be the perfect piece to wear to the premiere of your own Amazon documentary (Ben Stokes: Phoenix of the Ashes launches on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, August 26).
