Imagine shopping in a regular Los Angeles supermarket. You stand between the macaroni and the potato salad, and – BAM! There is Rihanna. But even when Rihanna shops like a normal person, she wears a damn good watch with it: a gold Cartier Santos, a watch that most celebrities reserve for the red carpet. Rihanna, of course, is not “most of the celebrities”. The singer has amassed an impressive number of timepieces over the course of her career. She owns collector’s favorites like the Patek Philippe Nautilus, Rolex Day-Date and Cartier Panthère. And this golden Cartier that is now shopping for groceries.
