Game of Thrones: Which Luxury Watch Would Your Favourite Character Wear?
Game of Thrones may have ended, but its prequel is coming to our screens next year. Hong Kong Tatler identifies watches that would complement the epic’s key characters
Some observers only recently came to recognise the nobility at his heart, but savvy individuals have long known this hardy character’s somewhat humble bearing belies a great strength… and royal heritage. Well-bred battler Jon Snow is Tudor, heir to “the crown” (as Tudor’s parent company, Rolex, is commonly known) and commander of the Night’s Watch, which is surely a Black Bay Dark.
Like Jaeger-LeCoultre’s most famous model, the Reverso, stealthy adolescent assassin Arya Stark will change faces on you in the blink of an eye. Not one to ever be underestimated, as many a bigger, brasher adversary discovered.
Extremely elegant, this grand dame has been around a very long time and survived just about everything that history could throw at her, effortlessly adapting to the mood of the day while always remembering her proud heritage. In that, indomitable Queen Cersei parallels Vacheron Constantin.
Wealthy, handsome, charming and all about keeping things in the family, Jaime Lannister is pure Patek Philippe (though most watches have at the very least two hands, while Jamie was sadly left with just one after a nasty incident in the third series). Just as a Lannister always repays his debts, a Patek positively promises outstanding ROI.
Statuesque, gorgeous, refined… perhaps seen as a little girlish once upon a time, but today considered strong, serious and magnificently mature—Sansa is Piaget.
