Pierre Niney attended the press conference of 'Yves Saint Laurent' during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival at Grand Hyatt Hotel on 7 February 2014 in Berlin, Germany. The 24 years old actor and rising star of French cinema wore a black blazer over a black shirt and blue denims, and accessorised with a Montblanc Star Classique Automatic timepiece.

A little trivial about the movie: 'Yves Saint Laurent' is a biopic about the late French designer, with Pierre Niney in the title role. There is also another biopic about the legendary designer called 'Saint Laurent', with fellow French actor (and Chanel model) Gaspard Ulliel in the lead role. To make things just that bit more interesting: Pierre BergĂ©, the late designer's close companion and business partner, gave his blessings for 'Yves Saint Laurent' (the movie), and tried to stop production of 'Saint Laurent' (the movie). 'Saint Laurent' (the movie) is backed by Francois-Henri Pinault, the head of Kering (formerly known as PPR), the conglomerate that owns Saint Laurent (the fashion house). Pinault gave consent for the fashion house's logo and designs to be used in the second movie.

So far so clear? It is like there is another movie / plot happening within the two movies.

Back to Pierre Niney and the press conference for 'Yves Saint Laurent'. Unabashedly, I love Pierre Niney's watch, as I have the same watch in white dial and brown strap! I love the simplicity and classic look of the watch, which is versatile enough to go with a suit, a casual outfit or the red carpet. Pierre Niney's Montblanc Star Classique Automatic timepiece measures 39mm in diameter, and comes with a sapphire crystal case back, black dial, silver-coloured hands and black alligator-skin strap. The timepiece complemented his outfit beautifully. I love it that there are no other accessories involved: no rings, no bracelets, no gimmicks. The beautiful timepiece is all that is needed.

  1. what's really nice is that he's not showing it ostentatiously like so many actors do these days, having their shirt's cuff mid-arm !
