Miles Davis is without a doubt considered one of the best and most influential Jazz Musicians of all time. The guy is also considered to be one of the coolest cats to ever walk the planet. Apparently, Bob Dylan called him the very definition of cool. When I found out that he rocked a Breitling Navitimer throughout the 1960s, I was inclined to agree!
I always enjoy hearing what various celebrities wear on their wrists. I found it interesting that Albert Einstein was pictured wearing a Wyler, Brad Pitt has been seen wearing a Blancpain Fifty Fathoms tourbillion and Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers wore a Roger Dubuis at the 2011 ESPYS. I am told that the overall watch of choice by athletes at the ESPYS was Breitling. I know that baseball superstar Carl Crawford supposedly just purchased a Bentley at Breitling’s boutique on 57th street in New York not too long ago.
Miles Davis clearly had an appreciation for the finer things in life. He had several exotic cars, including a Ferrari, a Mercedes and a Lamborghini. To read that his go-to watch was a Navi is pretty awesome. I always appreciated Davis’ musical talent, and now I appreciate his taste in watches. Well played.
