Best known for his roles in TV hits Small Axe and Top Boy, Micheal Ward is undoubtedly one of the rising stars of British showbiz – and is a stylish man to boot. A bubble gum pink Casablanca suit, all over monogram Fendi and an Louis Vuitton monogrammed navy blue suit with diamond encrusted shirt collar – which he co-designed with the late Virgil Abloh for the BAFTAs – have all shown love of red carpet risk-taking in recent years.
In the watch stakes, Ward has a penchant for pairing his suits with a stainless steel perfect UK Santos de Cartier replica watches, which with its roman numerals dial, square case, exposed screws on both the case and bracelet, means that it can do double duty as an everyday sports watch and as a red carpet dazzler.
Ahead of the release of the new Sam Mendes movie, Empire of Light, Ward was spotted on the red carpet in a very special remix of AAA best Santos de Cartier fake watches. Dubbed the ‘black lacquer’ Du Mont, the cheap replica Cartier watches is covered in black creating a stark contrast with steel elements such as the exposed screws. The roman numeral dial has an op-art design in which concentric squares seemingly disappear into infinity into the dial’s background.
‘Black out’ watches originally came out of the customisation ateliers of Mad Paris and London’s Bamford Watch Department. See Virgil Abloh’s blacked out Patek Philippe Nautilus by Mad Paris in 2019 for a prime example. The contrasting highlights of the ‘Black Lacquer’ top copy Cartier Dumont watches takes the art form to a whole other level – you’d spot this thing a mile off on a red carpet or dance floor.
Traditionally, the relationship between the grand maisons of haute horology and young black stars who help to popularise their products has been a fraught one. Despite being hugely influential as tastemakers, black people are grossly underrepresented in the watch business. For young, working class Londoners such as Micheal Ward, who was born in Jamaica and grew up in Hackney and Romford, Cartier replica watches wholesale is the haute horological complement to a pair of Gucci loafers. The dancehall legend Popcaan has a song called ’Skeleton Cartier’ which he rhymes with ‘richer than last year’ in the track’s chorus. It speaks to Swiss made Cartier super clone watches as a symbol of working class aspiration and success, of which Ward is the living, breathing embodiment. His relationship with luxury Cartier fake watches is therefore not only perfectly natural, but also, long overdue.
