Even though he’s only 26, Justin Bieber has been in our lives for a long time. He is also a loyal fan of luxury replica watches. Over the past decade, we’ve seen him grow up from baby-faced “Baby” singer and sleek perfectly packaged popstar of the Believe era to the mangy-haired, sometimes-mustachioed and always-sweatsuited king. Which is to say: a lot can change in the course of 10 years. Styles change, trends change, and haircuts change—and so do the watches we care about. Bieber’s collection is emblematic of that relatively swift overhaul. He’s gone from wearing chunky plastic G-Shocks on the red carpet to making a gold fake Rolex Daytona his standard everyday. Below, we track all the changes and take a look at Bieber’s best watches.
The first proper watch Bieber started wearing was this very blingy version of the gold bracelet replica Rolex Day-Date. The watch is an undeniable fit for the era of Bieber when his hair was sculpted as carefully as Michaelangelo’s “David” and when he would wear a peculiar number of boldly coloured suit jackets with the sleeves rolled up. The Day-Date is an entry-level Rolex, so you might say a version of it rimmed with diamonds is the perfect piece for a pop star on the rise.
Over the past couple of weeks, this is the watch the Biebs has been wearing most often. When he needs a watch to pair with a full banana-yellow sweatsuit, he grabs this gold Rolex Daytona copy with champagne dial. When he is prepping for his Saturday Night Live performance, or running around New York for fancy-pants outings with Hailey, he’s wearing this gold Rolex Daytona. Over the past decade or so, watch collectors have shifted from switching between a daytime watch and dressy one to wearing a sporty, casual piece like the Daytona all the time. Bieber’s doing it just right.
