The Watch: Rolex Deepsea Sea Dweller

The Details: There was once a time that Beckford wore anything and everything that was blinged out with diamonds—which were, in the nineties, a man's unabashed status symbol. Today, he cringes at the very thought.

"I don't want to be too flashy anymore," he says. "I don't do watches with the diamonds—I did that when I was younger. When I look back now, I think it's kind of tacky."

Which is why Beckford now sports a Rolex Deepsea Sea Dweller watch that he found at a dealer in Flushing, Queens, as his go-to for day-to-day.

"Rolex has been around for a long time, and this Deepsea is my everyday dress-up watch," he says. "I keep it clean and simple, and this one is a classic. I like it because it's stainless. It's a watch I wear that easily dresses any outfit up." He adds: "It's also 51 millimeters. It's big—really big."
