John Legend is a style icon. The 42-year-old singer isn’t just only one of the most talented musicians alive today: a vocalist, songwriter, record producer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and EGOT (i.e. an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winner). But he’s also one of the most fashionable male celebrities on the planet, serving up style inspiration even more impressive than his vocal range. Legend is a huge fan of high-end watches and has a lot of them in his safe.

His favourite watch brand, however, is Royal Oak, and he has quite a few. His yellow gold Royal Oak Chronograph has a white dial and is his favorite watch. Wear it every day, no matter what activity you are doing. Don’t worry about breaking it.

Despite hanging out with a lot of rappers, he’s never directly referenced his AP in a song of his. Audemars Piguet It must be lovely.

Weighing in at 41mm and powered by the Audemars Piguet calibre 2385, this three-counter chronograph rendition of Switzerland’s most famous luxury sports watch boasts a rather unique silvery-white “Grande Tapisserie” dial, and both a case and integrated bracelet made out of brushed 18ct yellow gold. It doesn’t matter what the weather is like or how dressed up he is, it will always be the watch he reaches for first. It was seen on him twice last week, in the photo above and below, where he is holding the hotdog. Also, it was worn during his family holiday to Portofino earlier in the year.

Nothing quite says ‘baller’ like unbuttoning your silk shirt and getting stuck into a glizzy with a whopping big gold watch on.

Flex on me once, shame on you. You can’t do it twice!

Of course, to fuel his expensive watch habit, Legend works hard. Legend is a coach for The Voice in America and has also built his own wine brand with Raymond Vineyards, an acclaimed Napa Valley winery.
