For this weeks Spot the Watch, we are featuring a fashion power couple. They are David & Victoria Beckham. David Beckham made his name playing Football aka Soccer for Manchester United. He went on to play for Real Madrid, AC Milan, LA Galaxy and PSG. He is retired from football, but he still has considerable marketing appeal. His wife Victoria Beckham was a pop star with the Spice Girls and is now a successful fashion designer with her eponymous label. We have spotted them with various models from one brand in particular. Rolex.
We will start off with Mr David Beckham. A male style icon, who is often photographed for his stylish dressing and hairstyles. He quite likes his wristwatches. He owns timepieces from Jacob &Co and bought his eldest son Brooklyn Beckham the exact same model he owned. A nice Father & Son combination. We have noticed that David Beckham likes both modern and vintage Rolex.
The first Rolex spotted on his wrist is the Deepsea Sea Dweller. The big brother of the smaller Sea Dweller, the Deepsea has a maximum depth rating of 12800ft or 3900m. Mr Beckham owns two versions of the same watch. The first version is the standard model straight from the Rolex factory.
Now onto the vintage models spotted on his wrist. The first vintage model spotted is the classic Datejust with a 36mm gold case. It features a pale gold dial with baton markers. On a leather strap it pairs very well with a suit.
The final vintage model we spotted on the wrist of David Beckham is a nipple dial GMT Master with brown bezel. What makes the watch even more cool is the fact it is mounted to a fatstrap! Just like another style icon, Paul Newman who wore his Rolex Daytona on a fatstrap!. The man on the right of the photo with David Beckham is Justin Theroux, an actor and screenwriter. He happens to be wearing a vintage Rolex Submariner in yellow gold with a nipple dial also!

Now we will show you some of the Rolex watches spotted on the wrist of Victoria Beckham.
Like her husband, Victoria Beckham likes both modern and vintage Rolex pieces. She is seen on a regular basis wearing her gold Rolex Daytona with the in-house automatic Calibre 4130. We have said previously the Daytona looks good on a ladies wrist, especially a gold version!
The next model spotted on the wrist of Victoria Beckham, appears to be a vintage Datejust with a bark coloured dial. The more alarming thing noticed while looking at the picture is that a screw for one of the bracelet segments has come out a fair distance. We hope she noticed it in time!
The next vintage model spotted on her wrist is another vintage Day Date with a pastel green Stella Dial. A Stella dial is the nickname given to enamel dials in Rolex watches. The pastel green colour complements the yellow gold case and even though the watch is for a gentleman, it looks quite elegant on a lady.
To finish we thought we would feature a shot of David and Victoria Beckham wearing their Rolexes. David Beckham’s second Rolex Deepsea makes an appearance. The second model has been customised with a Black PVD Coating and the arrow tip for the bezel has been coloured red. This gives the watch a completely different look, making the 43mm case and the bracelet look badass!
We hope you have enjoyed this weeks Spot the Watch!
