Spot the Watch: Talk show host Trevor Noah

by Peter Chong on January 3, 2019

Trevor Noah, the host of the Comedy Central satire show The Daily Show has come a long way since his early years in South Africa. He began to anchor the Daily Show since 2015, and by many measures is considered to be successful. As with many other talk show hosts, it appears he too is into watches. Here we spot him wearing Audemars Piguet, Rolex, TAG Heuer and even Apple.

Trevor has been named by The Hollywood Reporter as one of “The 35 Most Powerful People in New York Media” in 2017 and 2018. And in 2018, Time magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Let’s begin. First, at the 2017 MTV Awards, where Trevor won the Best TV Host .

He is seen with a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day Date in gold.

A closer look.

And from the same evening, a different angle confirms the spot.

At more recently, as promotional material for his talks at the University of Massachusettes on October 5, we saw this photograph:

Zooming in, it is easy to spot that he has a Panerai Luminor on his wrist. Comparing images from other photographs, we id this watch to be the Luminor Base in 44mm in SS.

He was also spotted this year, with Spanish Raggaeton singer, J Balvin with a Rolex GMT Master-II Everose.

But Trevor was not always rocking luxury watches. In an 2015 article in GQ, we found this photograph:

The watch is the TAG Heuer Carrera Caliber 5 Day Date with a blue dial and blue croc strap. A zoom in confirms this.

And more recently, with an Apple Watch. Although he is seen wearing the Apple Watch on his left hand, where he usually wears his watch, we can see a band on his right hand, suggesting that he might be double wristed in this photograph.

Trevor is also been seen elsewhere with several Audemars Piguet (Royal Oak Jubilee, and Royal Oak Offshore Diver), Rolex Cellini, Rolex Submariner, and others. What have you spotted him wearing? Let us know in the comments below.
