Aside from becoming a stage upon which some truly spectacular sporting drama unfolded this past fortnight, the 2023 US Open became the unexpected setting for a bit of high-end watch spotting, too, as a flock of A-listers took their seats to take in the action.

With every round of applause, some excellent luxury timepieces could be seen on a slew of celebrity wrists. Here are some of our favourites:

Novak Djokovic

Djokovic lifted the Men’s Singles trophy wearing his unmissable Hublot Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic. It is the same watch he wore to celebrate after winning the Western & Southern Open earlier this summer. Djokovic has been an Hublot ambassador since 2021.

Coco Gauff

The director and star of A Quiet Place wore the IWC Ingenieur watch ref. IW328901. The design of the new 40mm automatic sports watch is directly inspired by Gérald Genta‘s Ingenieur SL from the 1970s.

Justin Timberlake

The actress and Breitling ambassador had just helped to celebrate the watch’s launch a few days beforehand, by co-hosting a party with fellow ambassador Misty Copeland.
