The special “Friends” reunion is finally upon us, so we’ve put together an edition of watches that would best suit key characters from the American sitcom.
It’s hard to believe that Friends completed in 2004; most of us have dreamed of a reunion ever since. Thanks to reruns, the American sitcom has remained on an endless loop as we work from home, spend weekends alone, and try out various internet trends that have gone viral.
Fortunately, our wait is over, with The one where they get back together now streaming on HBO Max. If, like me, you spent your youth watching the lives of Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Monica (Courteney Cox), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), Joey (Matt LeBlanc), Chandler (Matthew Perry) and Ross (David Schwimmer) , you can practically taste the coffee at the Central Perk and, blindfolded, locate the wall that has not been plugged.
But what luxury watches would these beloved characters wear? Here are the timepieces Tatler thinks it would be best suited for key figures in Friends.
“It’s spelled like ‘Gucky’ which can be confusing.” Rachel Green was the most stylish character in Friends thanks, in part, to the Rachel haircut, which got women all over the world to iron their locks flat within an inch of their lives.
A trendsetter and painfully superficial, Rachel has gone from chief cheerleader to fashion manager, holding positions at Bloomingdale’s, Ralph lauren and, towards the end of season ten, Louis Vuitton. The job Rachel really wanted was at Gucci, but she canceled the interview when current boss Mr Zelner overheard her meeting with the Italian designer’s rep.
Tatler then sees Rachel sporting the new G-Timeless Dancing Bees, crafted in white gold and set with diamonds. That’s not to say Rachel wouldn’t exchange it at a later date for another model from the Chanel or Dior powerhouses. After all, as Chandler said, “She exchanges all the gifts she gets.”

The average paleontologist may not be able to afford the Arceau Pocket Aaaaargh! by Hermès, but that didn’t stop us from imagining this timepiece coming out of Ross Geller’s chest pocket. Maybe he’ll be happy when he finally wins this Nobel Prize for his groundbreaking article on sediment flows.
Few men have the style and charisma to pull off a pocket watch, but if there’s anything we’ve learned from ten years of Friendswas that there was nothing Ross couldn’t make his own. Who else looked so good wearing a “Frankie Says Relax” crop top, skinny leather pants or a Spudnik Halloween costume?
Powered by Hermès’ Manufacture H1924 minute repeater and tourbillon movement, this watch features an elegant white enamel dial protected by a detailed cover adorned with the T-Rex of a Hermès silk scarf designed by the English artist. Alice Shirley.
In the eighth season of Friends, Monica Geller openly fantasized about moving to France where she would live in a cheese house; if her husband Chandler could join her was neither here nor there. So it seems fitting that this nervous perfectionist and damn good cook has the Pasha de Cartier – a French classic – strapped to his wrist.
Monica frequently wore a pair of tight-fitting jeans with a button-down shirt that she wore, for Christmas, with excruciatingly painful leather boots. The more observant of us will also have noticed that Ross’s younger sister wore several wristwatches during the ten years of the American sitcom.
A quick review of the show’s seasons suggests that Monica preferred a round steel or white gold case, making the Pasha de Cartier a perfect choice.

Chandler Bing was half of the best couple in Friends, but he also had a reputation for being a “dropper,” meaning he needs a tough watch that will survive high-pitched slogans (“Oh. My God!”) and football games. Thanksgiving. Enter IWC Schaffhausen, a brand whose heart is anchored in a philosophy of precision and impact resistance.
Following the success of the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Spitfire, the Swiss watchmaker recently introduced a slightly smaller 41mm Pilot’s Watch. Crafted from stainless steel, these new watches feature either a blue or green dial, which collectors can wear with a calfskin strap or a metal strap.
The brand’s proprietary quick-change system allows you to swap out the different bracelets without watchmaking tools, which makes sense for a man who can’t even remember where his own living room furniture goes.
One of the most original characters of Friends, Phoebe Buffay was a die-hard environmentalist. A keen vegetarian who refused to wear fur and berated a woman for putting out her cigarette on a tree, she is a refreshing addition to the tight-knit group.
There is no doubt that this guitar-strumming blonde would choose a watchmaker that suits her sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle, and Breitling has a long history of collaborating with ocean talk projects that uphold Phoebe’s theory. that “lobsters mate for life”.
The new Chronomat Automatic 36 South Sea from Breitling features special lacquered dials available in beige, midnight blue and mint green. Diamond-set indexes and a bezel mounted on colored gemstones give these watches a playful touch, making them perfect for a woman who doesn’t care about what is conventional.

Joey Tribbiani doesn’t share food, and this Italian-American loved nothing more than pizza, though he risked his life for a meatball sub in season five, making the sandwich a contender. from close.
The only vintage wristwatch included in Tatler‘s edit, the 1999 Rolex Air-King Ref 14000/2140 is branded with the red and white Domino’s pizza chain logo, making it the benchmark for this Days of our lives star of the soap opera.
If that wasn’t enough, Rolex has been linked to the movies for years, from appearances of its watches in iconic films to promoting young filmmakers. After all, Joey has always been easily influenced – who else remembers the reason he bought Mrs Butterworth’s?
