He may no longer be on our screens as Jamie Lannister but Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s extra tuxedo and watch combination at TV’s night of nights ensured that we nay forget him anytime soon.
Nikolaj hit the Emmy Red Carpet for which he was nominated in the Supporting Actor – Drama category for his role in HBO’s Game of Thrones. This was the second nomination for the star who received the same nomination in 2018.
On the red carpet, Nikolaj wore a custom-made Dolce & Gabbana gold tuxedo with a distinct dragon scale jacquard pattern, despite his TV character never associating with the infamous beasts. He matched it with classic black tuxedo trousers and patent leather shoes but the real stand out was his IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar.
Nikolaj wore the IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar gold watch on an alligator leather strap with his ostentatious gold jacket for maximum effect. This is the first IWC Portugieser in the current collection to feature Kurt Klaus’s perpetual calendar mechanism with the original being widely regarded as one of the milestones of IWC watchmaking. A true masterpiece.
The A$53,700 watch is a stylish option for the red carpet as it’s see-through sapphire-glass back with slate-coloured dial make it perfect for the star-studded event. The mechanism is powered with the in-house IWC 52615 automatic movement and features a full 7-day power reserve.
Unfortunately, the classic watch was not enough for the star who walked away without a win but the TV show itself managed to have a record-breaking evening. Game of Thrones was nominated for 32 awards, the most for any single TV season ever and managed to walk away with 12 awards, breaking its 2015 record for most awards given to a series.
Ten of the awards were picked up at last week’s Creative Arts Emmy’s and only two were picked up on the telecast, one for Oustanding Drama Series and the other for Peter Dinklage, who won the Best Supporting Actor – Drama gong.
Nikolaj will next be seen on the big silver screen with upcoming roles in Domino and The Silencing. He was also recently cast as the lead in FXs new series Gone Hollywood about talent agents in the 80s.
