Serena Williams Wears the Best Marvel Product of 2021
Welcome to Watches of the Week, where we’ll track the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches spotted on celebrities.This was a good week for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While most prestige directors like to kick dirt on the MCU, Paul Thomas Anderson outed himself as a fan. Shang-Chi, he said, has “terrific energy,” which is the highest possible compliment to get from a Los Angeles resident.
But the Marvel universe doesn’t just include movies and television shows. It also extends to a world of products that includes a partnership with luxury watch brand Audemars PIguet established in March. The first watch in what will be an ongoing collaboration is centered around Black Panther.
The piece is part of a larger pop culture wave of watches: Admirers of Mickey Mouse, Mario, and Space Jam could all find luxury-grade timepieces to indulge their fandom this year.
But none of those watches quite hit like this super-popular ($162,000) Black Panther watch. Serena Williams, something of a real-life superhero, is an obvious matchfor it. Also this week, Scottie Pippen shows he’s no second fiddle and Andrew Garfield keeps it classic.
Considering Eternals’ Rotten Tomatoes score, working with Audemars Piguet has to be one of Marvel’s better maneuvers of 2021. The piece contains an actual figure of the Wakandan superhero at the center that took 30 hours to carve, according to the brand. Only 250 were made and we’ve already seen several out in the wild on the wrists of LeBron James, The Weeknd, Neymar, and now Williams.
