Mad Men’s Don Draper and His Luxury Watches
Last night was the Season 6 premier of “Mad Men” on AMC. Set in the 1960s, the character’s wardrobes stay true to this vintage era. Don Draper, the main character in “Mad Men” played by Jon Hamm, is no exception. Draper has gone through many transformations throughout the show’s existence and his selection in wristwatches is typically included in this transformation. Draper has worn many different luxury watches during the show and we have included many of them here:
One watch that gets a lot of face time during several “Mad Men” episodes is the Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso. In one of the episodes, Don’s wife takes the watch to have it engraved.
Another Jaeger LeCoultre watch that has made an appearance on Draper’s wrist is the Jaeger LeCoultre Memovox. This watch appeared during season 1 of “Mad Men.”
Draper has also been spotter wearing a Rolex Explorer. The Explorer has a black dial and a stainless steel Oyster bracelet. Also, at one point, Draper and his advertising agency are working on landing the Rolex account.
Another watch that has made an appearance on Draper’s wrist during season 6 is a 1966 OMEGA Seamaster De Ville. It has a black dial and a date indicator at 3 o’clock, all on a leather strap. It is a diameter of 34mm. OMEGA released the DeVille in the 1960s, which is the time frame that “Mad Men” is set. It was considered to be one of the dressier OMEGA models.
Don Draper is often praised for his wardrobe. His suits, pocket squares, watches, and sunglasses are closely scrutinized every episode. Every piece of his wardrobe is true to the 1960s. The costume designer for Don Draper, Janie Bryant, strives to choose clothes and accessories that are appropriate, yet fashionable for the 1960s. Draper has yet to disappoint with his choices, especially his choices of luxury watches! With season 6 just beginning, we are excited to see what watches Don Draper choices to wear this season!
