As a bonafide fashion plate for Gen Z, Hailey Bieber is renowned for her laid back-luxe style. So it comes as no surprise that the model, socialite and skincare entrepreneur has curated an enviable selection of watches to pair with her looks – often elevating her sporty jerseys or low-key tees with a stunning gold and diamond dress watch.

A fan of the big Swiss watchmakers, Bieber has previously been spotted out wearing several Rolex timepieces, including a men’s Day Date 40mm watch in pink gold with a chocolate dial and a 41mm men’s Datejust with a two-tone gold and steel bracelet. Bieber and her husband, Justin, also boast his ‘n’ hers Audemars Piguet Royal Oak models with full diamond pavé dials.

More recently though, it seems the model’s been downsizing the scale of her timepieces, sporting both a 31mm and 28mm Rolex DateJust, and an elegant Day Date 36mm with a bright turquoise dial.

Bieber’s latest obsession is an 18kt yellow gold Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 4700 with a dainty 27mm dial, which she has been spotted wearing recently in Los Angeles. “It’s both contemporary and classic,” says Yoni Ben-Yehuda, head of watches at the luxury jewellery and vintage watch boutique Material Good, where she purchased the timepiece. “Smaller vintage timepieces have been gaining traction, and as a woman who has a pulse on trends, [Bieber] is ahead of the curve.”

On Mrs. Bieber’s beloved watch collection, Ben-Yehuda adds: “Hailey buys what she loves, not what is necessarily popular, and by doing so she often creates buzz around less notorious pieces.”

If you’re tempted to follow in her (immaculately shod) footsteps and begin curating your own vintage watches, Ben-Yehuda advises not following trends too slavishly. “Timepieces are personal, emotional and ultimately an expression of self. Start by coming in and trying on different watches in different sizes – it really is the only way to uncover your likes and dislikes. Trends can be cyclical, so it’s important not to focus on what is a hot commodity now, but what speaks to you.”

That said, if another dinky Patek Philippe turns up at Material Good any time soon, you’ll know where to find us.
