Bradley Cooper Casually Rocked A $30,000 Watch With $20 Flip Flops

Typical dad things.

There’s setting the bar high…then there’s setting the bar to untouchable status. Welcome to Bradley Cooper‘s ultimate dad style.

Bradley Cooper IWC

The 44-year-old Hangover actor was spotted over the weekend in Los Angeles with his wife Irina Shayk and young daughter Lea looking like a bonafide family man who wouldn’t look out of place at your local home depot store. He had the NFL team cap (Philly Eagles), the varsity sweater in mandatory grey marle, cargo pants (bet you didn’t know they still made those), aviator sunglasses and grey flip flops (likely the finest offering from Havianas). In other words he proudly looked just like every other awesome dad in the world…almost.

Save for the fact that he was jumping into a slick black Mercedes-Benz G Wagen, Cooper also paired his epic dadcore look with an IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Limited Edition IW501007 which retails in the region of AU$30,000 for a used one. That’s serious wrist candy you wouldn’t want near any kid who could potentially projectile vomit on you at any time. But hey, each cool dad to their own.



The IWC timepiece has been seen on Cooper before, most recently spotted at the press conference for A Star is Born in a more fitting attire consisting of a blazer and collared shirt. We guess you can’t argue against daily wearability.

Your move, average dad.

    I think Bradley Cooper should do whatever he wants!! Since when is working hard, taking care of his child, girlfriend and mother, giving them the best life possible, as he truly loves his family and they come first! So, I say, why is it so bad for him to buy something for himself? This is where social media is a total waste of VALID time!! This is all bullshit! Do we really need to critique something about Bradley Cooper’s relationship or his watch or if IRINA is not with him one day? PEOPLE!! GET A LIFE AND FOCUS ON REAL ISSUES INSTEAD OF PICKING AT NONSENSE. DO SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE WITH YOUR LIFE!! TIMES WERE SO MUCH BETTER WITHOUT SOCIAL MEDIA! 90% OF PEOPLE USE IT TO BITCH AND MOAN! THERE’S ENOUGH NEGATIVITY IN THE WORLD AS IT’S BROADCAST ON THE LOCAL NEWS EVERY SINGLE DAY!! NOW WE HAVE MORE NEGATIVITY ON SOCIAL MEDIA! WHY CAN’T PEOPLE JUST FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE? PURE JEALOUSY AND THEY MUST VOICE IT. THERAPY IS A GREAT TOOL FOR A WELL ADJUSTED LIFE. I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD SPEND SOME TIME EXPLORING ISSUES WITH A CERTIFIED THERAPIST AND SPEND LESS TIME ON SOCIAL MEDIA SPEWING TOXIC REMARKS! CLEARLY SOMETHING’S WRONG! THANKS MARK ZUCKERBERG!

    Only when I look in the mirror. Enjoy your night…(but not much).

    lol … I agree with the whole social media rant, but the irony is not lost of the fact it’s posted in the comments of a social media article/photo … lol … why is this a story, and why do we care? I like watches too, but was just link-jumping, looking, and moving on until I saw the ALL CAPS and decided to read through. Have a great day … maybe we should all go out for a walk and log off for a bit.
