Tinie Tempah reveals his love of watches

First published: 15-06-2012

These days he is an international superstar so it is hard to believe that just 20 months ago UK rapper Tinie Tempah was celebrating as his debut album Disc-Overy reached number one in the charts.

Of late the Pass Out singer has been getting more than admiring glances for his sartorial choices and Shortlist magazine recently named him in its top 20 list of trend setters – so it hardly comes as a surprise that he has good taste in watches too.

He often publicises his love of all things chronographic on his official website, where the latest Rolex watches are a regular blog feature, but he recently admitted that he finds the idea of referring to them as a 'timepiece' a bit weird.

"A lot of people I socialise with have got me interested in watches," he told the magazine.

"I love a good watch. I don't call them timepieces, though – that would be a bit mad."
