Wearing what is certainly no slum watch, Sunday January 11th's Golden Globes award show saw actor Dev Patel wearing a high style Jaeger LeCoultre
watch. The timepiece was the Reverso Squadra, a sportier rendition of the classic Reverso watch line. The pictured Squadra watch features a chronograph and GMT complication with a big date at the top. As is common on all Reverso watches, they have the ability to be flipped around. The opposite side revealing further complications or a protective metal caseback, as was the purpose of the original Reverso watches that protected the watch crystal from the high impact Polo games.
Patel was likely given the watch personally by Jaeger LeCoultre to wear at the show. Luxury product makers often gift such items to celebrities to be worn in public for publicity and marketing purposes. Patel made out pretty well being approach by Jeager LeCoultre. More established celebrities often have brands fighting for their limited "body real estate," and have been known to offer large sums of money in exchange for exclusive deals. Don't be surprised if Dev Patel is seen only wearing Jaeger LeCoultre watches at events for the next several years.
